30 Day Book Challenge: Day Twelve

So Many Books, So Little Time is hosting the 30 Day Book Challenge. Each day for 30 days I'll be answering one question about books.

Day Twelve: A book you think should be made into a film

A few weeks ago, this was the topic for the Top Ten Tuesday list on The Broke and the Bookish. Here's the list that I came up with.

I think if I had to choose one out of the ten, however, I'd pick Silent in the Grave by Deanna Raybourn. While I think the others would make superb films (especially Skulduggery Pleasant), I've been following Raybourn's career since the beginning and, I don't know, I guess I just wish that more people were reading her books, male or female. Here's her website and here's her blog. In addition to being a superb writer, she's a really down-to-earth person who actually converses with her fans, whether it's on Twitter, her blog, or Facebook. I like to see nice people succeed and I think she's definitely deserving of more attention.



  1. Thanks for encouraging others to read authors they are not aware of . I shall place her on my reading list of authors to look into. oh, YOU ARE MY 75 FOLLOWER AND THAT MAKES YOU THE WINNER OF MY BOOK GIVEAWAY!!!! HOORAY! The book is 'TWICE THE SPY' by Keith Thomson, email me you mailing address.

  2. She's definitely a great author.

    Wow, I never win anything and here I didn't even have to really do anything. This is why book blogging is awesome. :)

  3. This is truly one reason why book blogging is awesome. Well said.
