My Favorite.. is a weekly meme hosted by Maureen’s Books. In this meme we share every week something we love with each other. Because let’s face it.. The world can be a dark place and it’s time to share something positive. For more info: My Favorite Meme.
I’m always concerned when they make movies from my favorite books. Chances are they’re going to change it, or pick the wrong actors, or cut out bits I love. Once in a while, the movie is better, The Shining and Casino Royale jump to mind, but in general that’s not the case.
While the Fox and O’Hare series are not on my list of favorite books, they are enjoyable and I think would make good movies. You have a pretty, sexy FBI Agent Kate O’Hare and a handsome, sexy con man, Nick Fox who have to work together to bring down whoever – evil banker, drug dealer, terrorist, a bad guy of some sort. The scams are always convoluted with plenty of quirky characters, the occasional explosion and chase scenes. I’m picturing funny action-y movies to watch on date night with plenty of popcorn.
Who’s your favorite book you wish they made a movie of? Join in at Maureen’s Books.
I haven’t read any of these. I’ve enjoyed the Stephanie Plum books, but stopped reading them halfway through. I saw a movie made from the first (or second) Stephanie Plum book and enjoyed it.
I could never get into the Stephanie Plum books. I read two and just didn’t like them.
My favorite book I wish it could be made of is Beautiful Disaster. I LOVED (still love) that book SO very much. ❤️
I’ve never read it. It sounds good though.
ohh it would work as a tv series 😀
You’re right, it would make a good tv series.
It definitely sounds like this series would make a great movie. Action and handsome characters.. Perfect! 😉
I haven’t read this series though. Sounds fun.
Thanks for stopping by and joining!
Thanks for hosting. I’ve really been enjoying “My Favorite.”
It worries me too when they make a movie from a book I love. I haven’t tried this series.
It’s just so rare for movies to live up to their books.
There are so many books that deserve to be made into a film.
Currently I really want the Weird Sisters to be made into movies or even a TV show.
I haven’t read the Weird Sisters. I should check it out.
I haven’t read these books, but would definitely watch the movies.
They seem like they would be the type of movies that we usually watch. Fun and not heavy.
I haven’t read this series, but they sound like they would make great movies if done right! I feel like I’m always adding the “if done right” when this topic comes up. Like you, I’ve seen too many adaptations turn out bad. I hope you have a great week, Carol!
I agree with the “done right,” which is part of the reason I picked a series I enjoyed but didn’t absolutely love.
I haven’t read these.
They’re fun, but not extraordinary.
