Follow Friday #19

Follow Friday is hosted by Alison Can Read and Parajunkee.

Q: What book do you think would make a great Halloween movie? Please explain in graohic detail of goriness...

My answer... hmm... Unwind by Neal Shusterman. That one takes place in the future, where they've "solved" the pro-life/pro-choice arguement - all children must be born (not aborted) and raised. But after their thirteenth birthday, children can be "unwound", where they donate everything of the child to people in need - blood, heart, brain, lungs, arms, legs, spine... everything.

The Maze Runner by James Dashner. A boy wakes up in a maze with no memory of his former life, surrounded by other amnesiac boys. They are samck-dab in the middle of a maze filled with blood-sucking slug-like monsters with blades for arms. And the very next day, the first girl ever shows up, with one message: everything is going to change. She's the last one. Ever.

Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card. A seven-year-old boy is the only hope of murdering an alien race; they take to a battle-training school to teach him strategy, which he is already brilliant at, hoping that he'll be able to lead a squadron of ships and commit genocide.

Those are my choices. I could name several more, but I assume you want this post to be short. So, good day and have a blessed weekend! :)


  1. Unwind sounds gruesome what if the child doesn't want to be unwound.

  2. Whoa, that first one sounds super creepy! But that's a great choice! Hope you have a good weekend :)

    Here's my FF!

  3. They're making Ender's Game into a movie you know!

  4. The only one I had heard of is Ender's Game but they all sound like they could be made into good movies! ^.^ New follower (Frodosco - GFC). Here is my FF. :)

  5. Unwound sounds really, really creepy! I'm not sure if I could even read that one! I'm already following by GFC, and here's my FF post for this week.

  6. Hi! New follower here. Unwind sounds crazy but a very original idea and because of that I really must read it! Thanks for sharing.
