Giveaway!Posted: June 24, 2011 Filed under: Book of Sand 23 Comments
In celebration of 800 posts, I’m happy to give one of you a signed copy of Brandon Mull‘s new book Beyonders: A World Without Heroes. You may remember that I loved this book and placed it in my list of top 10 favorite books. In other words, it’s really good. And the Romgi and I went in person to have the author sign a copy for you!
To enter, leave a comment on this post telling me what book you’d like to see made into a movie. (Common sense: please name a book that hasn’t already been adapted.)
I really like having people read my blog, so you can get an extra entry for telling someone else about the giveaway via Facebook, Twitter, or your own blog. Leave another comment with a link to your post – just one extra entry, even if you do all three things, please.
You can enter until 11:59 pm MDT on Tuesday, June 28. A winner will be drawn at random the following day, and I’ll announce it here and contact the winner via email.
P.S. I did a giveaway when I hit 500 posts, and the publisher provided a copy of the book then. This time, I bought Beyonders with the Romgi’s hard-earned money, so it really is a gift from me. Just because I like you guys!
I would love to see the last Fablehaven made into a movie- provided that it is unaltered.
I will enter!
There’s talk that the Mistborn Triology will be made into movies – I’m excited for that!
The Ghost of Dibble Hollow, by May Nickerson Wallace
Read it about 25 years ago, haven’t seen any movie made from it. Actually, I don’t remember much about the book except that the school librarian had to suggest that maybe I should wait a few weeks before checking it out for the sixth or seventh time.
This would good movie, depending on how it ends, but the fable haven series would make an AWESOME movie!!!. Love your work Brandon! keep them coming!
My favorite book is The Giver by Lois Lowry. I would love to see that made into a movie! I have read it like 50 time since the 8th grade. Thank you Mr. Briar for making us read that in class!
I would love to see The Monstrumologist by Rick Yancey adapted to a movie.
There are so many books that I could choose… but some of my favorites are still the science fiction books from my childhood. Of those, “Citizen of the Galaxy” by Robert Heinlein would be my top choice. With the special effects available today, I think Hollywood could come close to matching my imagination.
I think that Fahrenheit 451 should be made into a movie. It is a great book, no special effects needed, and it is one of those thinking types of books. I read it over and over and find more and more ideas I never thought of when I read it. Its a very good book.
I don’t usually enjoy seeing books that I love made into movies. I get so frustrated at the alterations! But I suppose if they made The Distant Hours by Kate Morton into a movie I’d watch it.
Fabelhaven would be a great movie series, Pillage by Obert Skye would be another great one. Thanks for the question and the giveaway!

I really loved The Book Thief and wouldn’t mind seeing that turned into a movie. I also really loved The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova, and thought I heard they were making it into a movie (a year ago at least) but haven’t heard anything about it recently, so I’m not sure if that rumor was true or not. Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult would also make a pretty interesting movie. Maybe you can tell, I don’t mind movies that are “inspired” by books. I usually think of them as totally separate stories anyway.
I’d love to see Fablehaven or The Sisters Grimm made into movies. Both series are fantastic!
The Belgariad or The Redemption of Althalaus by David Eddings would be incredible as would any of Anne McCaffery’s Pern books.
Fablehaven would be great fun as a movie, Also The Host by Stephanie Meyer would be good
I shared the link and came back for a second entry.
As our kids start moving into older-audience books, we are using your book list & reviews as a very useful guide. (Sometimes for us, too, when we have time for reading!)
My son says the Beyonders would be good. I wouldn’t know because I haven’t gotten to read it yet. (hint, hint) I of course thought of Fablehaven which has been already mentioned numerous times. I don’t want them to do it like they did Percy Jackson though because the movie was so bad compared to the book (not a bad movie just left a lot out and changed a lot). 39 clues would be good as well. The series of Candle in the Darkness about the Civil War by Lynn Austen.
The Redwall series would be good. There is one animated movie but a full action would be cool! Daniel X by James Patterson would also good.
We sent your link to a friend on facebook and posted it on our page… Can’t figure out how to link it to here tho. Thanks for the giveaway again!! :) Jennifer Martin and Colin Fanning
