Melissa says: “This is such a hard choice to make.  There are so many books that I’d love to see made into movies.  Days Like This by Alison Stewart would have to be one of a few at the top of my list for books to movie though.  That would be followed closely by the whole Morganville Vampire Series by Rachel Caine.  But then I’d be happy to at least see Glass Houses hit the big screen.”

Melissa also picks Days Like This’ striking cover, designed by Penguin’s Arielle Gamble as one of her favourite covers of 2011.
