Happy Sunday everyone! After several weeks of borderline summer weather, the rain has finally arrived and washed away any thoughts of an early trip to the beach, lol. Still, I have felt completely deprived of my rainy weather reading days this year, so I hope this storm system sticks around for a while. On a non-weather front, school isn't too intense at the moment, so I've been able to enjoy my English Lit class to the fullest. We've gone through the Romantic and Victorian periods and are now entering into the 20th century. It's been predominantly poetry so far, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but I do hope we evaluate some fiction in the coming weeks. Well, before I start rambling on about my favorite pieces of poetry I've discovered in my English class, let me recap what's been going on here at The Muse in the Fog Book Review:

And now for the Suddenly Sunday Question:
If you could choose one book to be adapted into a movie what would it be?

I would say The Pink Carnation Series, but I fear that any adaptation would spoil the vivid interpretation my mind has already created. Therefore, I shall have to go with Elizabeth Chadwick's The Scarlet Lion. Now if I really wanted to be picky, I would also have it played by actors reminiscent of the 1938 movie The Adventures of Robin Hood.

Have a great week & happy reading!

I would like to see a remake of The Good Earth by Pearl Buck, this time using REAL Asians in the main parts.

I absolutely LOVE Errol Flynn.. he was a fantastic actor.

And as far as flicks go in the real sense of the box office goes.. I tend to agree that they would be commercialized too much.

How about a mix of all our favorite Austen coninuations? A BBC-style series would be so much better =) You can snuggle in your bed and wait for the next showing!

You too, Marie?! It's sad how many people these days have no clue who Errol Flynn was. The Adventures of Robin Hood is by far one of my favorite movies; how could it not be when the four leading actors/actresses are on my top ten favorites list!

I like your idea for a BBC-style series. Lol, I was doing that last night with Downton Abbey. I have the first and second season recorded so last night I finally cuddled up on the couch and watched a mini marathon. I can't believe it has taken me this long to watch it!

They should really have more of that BBC style historical shows. I used to watch them a lot when I was younger. Love this feature and the button are just lovely. Is it ok if I have a Suddenly Sunday feature too over in my blog?:)
