via April 2013 Releases!.
So, book to movie adaptations as we all know, can be either a hit or miss. I’ve learned to walk in with low expectations so I don’t feel like crying and throwing a tantrum on my way out of the theater by the end of the movie. But I don’t know about you, I still feel like this obligation takes over me, the curiosity of seeing my favorite characters coming to life in some shape or form is something magical to experience. Though, I disagree with a lot of the casting over past films of my favorite novels, it’s still fun to follow and compare. So, here is a list of movies coming out within this year and the next. Hope you find something you’ve read or interested in. =) Happy reading and viewing, all! Please keep an eye on this post for added adaptations, being in the awesome world of book blogging, I stumble upon news quite often, and will be sure to keep you all informed! If you feel I have missed any, please by all means, let me know. =)

It was a lot of fun during our first live hangout, and we ended up going 4 hours long, because it was too fun to stop! But I have some SERIOUS editing to do to make it more bearable to watch. Till then, you can see our other videos in the link below! Hope you decide to join us!
Here is what to expect when doing a live Hangout with us:
There are 9 people in total allowed to be connected by video, everyone else will join us live on Youtube and we will take questions/requests/chat there.
Weekly, I will post a video about what we plan on discussing in the next weeks show, and I will be looking for people who have read certain books, and also, if you think you fit a characters description from any of your favorite novels or any of our weekly chosen novels, then please go to our Facebook or mail us at Thebooknatics@gmail.com and tell us which character from which book you would wish to display!
What we plan to do with you *issss*… have fun with a skit we called “Book-A-Likes” We will interview you with silly questions that pertain to that book, and you have to answer the best you can in any words of your own, maybe you can reenact however you perceived that character as you were reading. Let’s have fun with it!
If you have any books that you want to recommend that we add to our weekly shows for reviews and discussions, let us know! And thank you in advance. Looking forward to getting to make some frieeendships!*dances*

Larissa Ione Q&A
Krystle and I are a part of a Paranormal Romance group on Goodreads, and our board leaders worked ever so hard to get ahold of Ms.Ione for us! We are deeply grateful, and cannot wait! Ione will be answering our questions at approximately 7:00 pm tonight. I will update this article as soon as our answers are given! Our questions are as followed:
Sky: Hi there Ms.Ione! I’ve been looking forward to this for a while, it’s an honor to be able to chat with such a talented lady as yourself =) I only had one question today, a silly one. I love cuddling up in bed and reading, and most often my hubby is lying next to me, he doesn’t read at all, so I’ll be playful and read to him chapters from different books. I love to see his reaction to the things I’ve read him from this genre! I guess he never expects something like that could be “read”, rather than be “watched” haha
I guess I just wonder, with so many WELL described erotica scenes, and of, well, male member lengths, has your husband ever read or heard any chapters, scenes and such from your novels, and how does he react? Great approval on his side I hope =D
Larrisa: “Ha! My husband actually reads all of my books. He totally approves. Except he’s convinced that Wraith is based on him. *rolls eyes*
Sky: Larissa, that is wonderful news! Having a hubby that supports your writing is fantastic. That’s awesome he even see’s himself in your characters, whether he’s right or not lolol
Krystle: “I actually read “Pleasure Unbound” when I took my first plane ride (by myself), so you pretty much kept my mind at ease during that adventure. So a big THANKS for that 🙂 Like you I am a huge animal lover, which is why I groom dogs for a living and I love all of the pictures you put up on Facebook of your king shepherd “Hexe”. She’s gorgeous and seems to love life!
1. Do you ever dream up ideas for your books, then wake up and write those ideas down? When I read a book and really get into it I’ll dream about it for a few nights and sometimes wake up really emotional because it was so real.
2. With your dogs name being “hexe” which clearly goes with the style of your writing, are you ever going to use it any of your books as a character name?
I never wake up from dreams and write anything down. I should, but I don’t. I always hope that someday I’ll finally be smart enough to do that!
No Hexe characters in the near future, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be! *g*
