Bout of Books: Book to Movie Challenge


Bout of Books day 1 and there is a challenge going on over at Writing My Own Fairy Tale. The challenge is to tell others what your favorite and least favorite book to movie adaptions are. This was tough because there are a good number of book to movie adaptions I've enjoyed and a few that I've regretted seeing.

Favorite Book to Movie Adaption


Pride and Prejudice is my favorite movie adaption because it's just so fantastically good. There are moments that are different from the book for sure which is in every adaption but the love I have for the movie made want to read the book. 


Least Favorite Book to Movie Adaption


I am pretty sad with how everything went down in these books. First of all they are so much older and missing so much of what made the story so fantastic. I know book to movie adaptions can't be perfect but this made me sad. I was going to choose Safe Haven which was such a fantastic book but I recently watched the movie again and I've been able to enjoy it as a standalone without putting the book into the mix.

  1. I haven't read Percy Jackson, so I enjoyed the films. A friend of mine didn't like them though because they are so different. It's a bummer when they are SO different, but I can usually see books and movies as separate things. I loved the HP adaptations and I thought A Walk to Remember was a good one too.

    1. I thought the same thing about Eragon. Everyone didn't like it but I didn't read the books. I was thankfully able to finally see Safe Haven as a separate story in a way. HP is the greatest although there are a couple of things off. It's still a wonderful movie series.

  2. Ooh, good choices! I loved P&P and agree that the Percy Jackson movie was pretty disappointing.

    1. P&P - I love when people call it that. I really enjoyed the vlog version of it too.

    1. I wish Netflix would do something with it like they are doing with The Series of Unfortunate Events.
