I wish that So Big by Edna Ferber could be remade into another movie. And I also wish that Pink Think by Lynn Peril could be made into a documentary - I would love to see some old commercials and tv sitcom bits to illustrate her points.


Hi Jennifer

Two recent books that I would love to see as movies; Skeletons at the Feast by Chris Bohajalian (I loved that one, although we proabably don't need another WW2 novel, huh?) or Paul Auster's man in the Dark, a really unusual book with a really interesting sub-plot--I think it would make a great movie.

One of my book groups recently read What Was She Thinking? and had a great discussion about it--saw the movie too!

My daughter's name is Zoë also!


The first book that comes to mind is The School of Essential Ingredients.


I'd love to see "People of the Book" made into a movie but it would probably be too difficult.


Just sent a tweet out to let people know about the drawing!

Sinéad Gleeson

It's a very small, slight book but I'd love to see a film version of Maebh Brennan's The Visitor. Also Lorrie Moore's wonderful book about female friendship, Who Will Run the Frog Hospital.

And maybe I'm hung up on Huston's The Dead, but I'd love to see some of Flannery O'Connor's short stories in film.

Erika Lynn

I really want to see Going Too Far by Jennifer Echols made in to a movie


I would love to see Laura Viera Rigler's "Confessions of A Jane Austen Addict" made into a film! In fact, I recently blogged about it :) It would be great fun!

This book sounds very compelling! Thanks for the chance!

I would love to see the book Hunger Games made into a movie. I can just see Katniss and Petra's outfits! It would be awesome!


Hmmmm... I would love to see The Thirteenth Tale made into a film. Or The Terror but the arctic element would be tough to pull off.

Julie P.

I just finished a book that would make a wonderful movie -- THE RELIABLE WIFE! I actually think the film rights have already been sold!

Julie E.

I would love to win a copy of this book--I heard it was great!

I think Carol Goodman's "The Lake of Dead Languages" would make a great movie. I recall, when reading it, thinking that the scenes that take place on the frozen lake would look fantastic on film.

Kelly C

The book I really wish would be made into a movie is The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger. LOVED that one!

Thanks for entering me in the drawing!


I guess I'd go for Cutting for Stone to be a film.



Agnes and The Hitman by Jennifer Cruise and Bob Meyer -- with the right cast, of course.


I would like Doris Grumbach's The Ladies to be made into a movie!


I would love to see Agnes and the Hitman (by Jennifer Cruise and Bob Meyers) made into a movie -- with the right cast, of course.

Mari Partyka

The Red Tent or Poisonwood Bible, it's too hard to choose!

Thanks for all you do, Mari

Rebecca @ The Book Lady's Blog

I think Kathryn Stockett's new novel The Help would be fantastic on film. Thanks for the great giveaway!


Some great suggestions so far. I think the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society would make a great movie.

Who is Book Club Girl?

  • Book Club Girl is: a member of a book club and an avid reader who spent most of her childhood immersed in a book, an English major who considered library school until she realized it was all about computers, so turned to publishing, where she now works (but she vows to talk about books from all over and not to simply flog those from her own house). She was single, lived in the city, met a man, moved to the 'burbs, and is now a wife, a stepmother, a mother, and in her spare time, a fledgling blogger dedicated to sharing great books, news and tips with book club girls everywhere.

My Review Policy

  • I review fiction and nonfiction that is appropriate for book clubs. This includes literary and some women's commercial fiction as well as memoir and narrative nonfiction. I do not review self-help, thrillers, mysteries, horror, or fantasy. I have a fondness for YA literature and while the blog is not devoted to it (well, except for my obsession with the Betsy-Tacy series), I will occasionally review some YA books. The best way to reach me to request a review is to email me at bookclubgirl AT gmail DOT com.
