It’s Friday again which means it’s time for another Bookish Scene: This week’s theme is „Into the Night“ and I would have loved to actually go outside and take a bookish picture in the night but a) it’s fucking cold outside these days, b) my street looks rather boring at night and c) I don’t have a good enough camera to take satisfying pictures in the dark – so you have to live with just a dark photo and a book that fits the „night“ theme 😛

I picked Marisha Pessl’s „Night Film“ for my photo because being the only physical book I own that has „night“ in the title it was quite an obvious choice but I also think the story of this novel fits this week’s theme quite well because it was so surreal sometimes that it felt like a dark and disturbing dream. I’ve read this book together with Crini, Maraia and Sana in October as a Halloween read and even though it wasn’t really a scary horror story I really enjoyed reading it – but I was probably the only one of our buddy reading group who did 😀 You can find my full review of „Night Film“ here.

BookishScene: Project 52 is a bookish Instagram challenge hosted by Joséphine (@wordrevel) and Georgie (@whatgeorgiedid), Further information can be found on both their blogs where you can also see a preview of the upcoming themes.

  • Coole Idee!
    Wenn ich mir nich gestern schon Gedanken über dieses Wochenthema gemacht hätte, hät ich jetzt gar nicht hier reingeschaut 😛
    Ne richtige Nachtaufnahme wär toll! Aber wie du selbst sagst: Kalt und nicht grade hübsch draußen, wenns dunkel wird 🙁

    • Das Problem ist bei mir halt auch immer dass ich keine richtige Kamera habe und dass das bei Nachtaufnahmen mit dem Handy immer ziemlich abenteuerlich wird, da ist dann mehr Rauschen als Bild zu sehen 😀

  • LOL, I thought Sana and Crini liked it, too. I like the picture, at least. 😛 If someone took all of the mystery/nighttime/horror film elements from the book and wrote a different plot, I think it could work really well!

    • Well, I really didn’t get the impression that they liked it that much 😀

      I really want to see this book being turned into a movie, I think if it’s done right then it could be pretty exciting!

      • Yes, it would be great as a movie! I hope that happens, but I don’t know if the book is successful enough. =/

        • Well, I’m tempted to say that it’s time to use your book-pushing skills again to make this book more popular (though I actually think quite a lot of people have read it) but since you didn’t like it that much I’m not sure if you would be very convincing 😛

          Also I saw that the movie rights have already been picked up in 2013 but it doesn’t look like this project has made a lot of progress since, so I don’t know if this is still going to happen…
