Road Trip Wednesday #56: What Movie Do You Wish Had Been A Book First?

Welcome to our 56th Road Trip Wednesday!

Road Trip Wednesday is a "Blog Carnival," where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question and answer it on our own blogs. You can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.

We'd love for you to participate! Just answer the prompt on your own blog and leave a link in the comments - or, if you prefer, you can include your answer in the comments.

This Week's Topic:
What Movie Do You Wish Had Been A Book First?
(And Who Should Have Written It?)

Kate: “ Ensemble cast of characters, each with a fascinating back story and bizarre sense of humor? Yes please."

Kody: "The movie was great, but to see a book on that level of awesomeness??? Wowza!"

Road Trip Song of the Week:
"Movie Script Ending" by Death Cab For Cutie

Next week’s topic:
Your six-word memoir. Literally, your life story in six words.
Kody Keplilnger
