I would love to see

Save Karyn by Karen Bosnak

Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin

Whose Wedding is it anyway? by Melissa Senate~ This one especially because I LOVED both the book and the movie See Jane Date and it would be nice to see the sequel in movie form as well.

We're Just Like You, Only Prettier : Confessions of a Tarnished Southern Belle Author: Celia Rivenbark

I totally agree Kat...I loved the book and would love to see it in the big screen.  I think it would be hilarious plus as a bonus we learn alittle history.  Doesn't Lancelot sound like a fox.! LOL!

Melissa - I agree! Lancelot does sound pretty dreamy...hmmm...who would be a good choice to play him in a movie version? I always try to think of that when I read a book and I can't get a good one for Lance.

I really think that most book shouldn't ever go to the big screen.  Especially if it is your favorite book.  The movie will never compare to the actual book.  I am always amazed at how much more I enjoyed the book when i am sitting in the thearter bored wondering why they changed things so much.  There are very few books to movies that I like.

I'd have to say 'Me vs Me' by Sara Mlynowski.  I loved this book because I'm sure every woman has thought  "what if..." at some point in thier life and wondered what life would be like if they had made different choices in a relationship!  :)

Confessions of a Shopaholic is coming to the Big Screen, and I can't say that I'm totally digging who they picked to play Becky.  They picked Isla Fisher from The Wedding Crashers.  Not what I pictured Becky to look like which is the trouble with making my beloved books into movies!

The rumor on Sophie's website boards is that they are going to be chaging Becky from British to American as well and have her based out of New York.

Speaking of books to movies... Has anyone read "P.S. I love you" from Cecelia Ahearn.... if so.. the movie comes out either Nov or Dec.. I think Dec....


It was a great book.. and there is so much room to make it a good movie.. so we'll see.

My choice would have to be Alison Pace's "If Andy Warhol Had a Girlfriend" starring Hugh Grant and Anne Hathaway! 

I never read a chick lit until this one and couldn't stop smiling after finishing it.  It is very lowkey but so very real, including the heroine having to deal with a boss-from-hell.   I sent  Alison Pace an email after reading her debut novel and she answered back!    Love this book!!

I second Jennifer Weiner's "GOOD IN BED".  I enjoy her books.

My coworker and I decided we really wanted to see the Stephanie plum series as movies, and even decided Cristina Applegate would make a fabulous Stephanie.  Who to choose as Morelli, though..

Ralph's Party     A book that I just finished and was really surprised how much I got into it. Would love to see the ending of this book in a movie.
