Day 13 - April Book Challenge

Hollywood has been making every book under the sun into either a movie or a TV show. Its no tall order now a days to ask that your favorite book be transformed. It has already happened several times and it will happen several more.

I wrote a post a while back, but just now decided to publish, a list of my top ten books I want to see made into a movie. To see the list I posted earlier today, click here.

But my number one choice for both this post and my previous post today is......

The Legend Series by Marie Lu

Don't know what its about? Click the link here for the Goodreads page, or you could even click here to read my review of the first installment. Or you could even keep reading.

Because I haven't been feeling well lately I don't feel up to writing my own synopsis so I will just copy the one from the Goodreads page. Here ya guys go. 

"What was once the western United States is now home to the Republic, a nation perpetually at war with its neighbors. Born into an elite family in one of the Republic's wealthiest districts, fifteen-year-old June is a prodigy being groomed for success in the Republic's highest military circles. Born into the slums, fifteen-year-old Day is the country's most wanted criminal. But his motives may not be as malicious as they seem.

From very different worlds, June and Day have no reason to cross paths - until the day June's brother, Metias, is murdered and Day becomes the prime suspect. Caught in the ultimate game of cat and mouse, Day is in a race for his family's survival, while June seeks to avenge Metias's death. But in a shocking turn of events, the two uncover the truth of what has really brought them together, and the sinister lengths their country will go to keep its secrets.

Full of nonstop action, suspense, and romance, this novel is sure to move readers as much as it thrills."
This novel really would be great to see be turned into a movie. It has everything: dystopic, a little romance for the girls, themes for all ages, and bad-ass fight scenes for the boys to enjoy.  

So get with it Hollywood!
