This weeks question:
What book to movie adaptation have you most liked? Which one have you disliked?

My answer:
Hands down, the worst book to movie adaptation is The Other Boylen Girl. That movie was god awful and nothing like the book at all. I think everyone walked out of that theater pissed off.
My favorite book to movie adaptations are the Harry Potter books and Percy Jackson. Mostly because those are the first ones that come to my head. The Twilights are okay too. Eclipse being the best cause it's mostly like the book. I did a top ten on this topic once somewhere...

This weeks question:
How many books do you read in a week? And in what format do you read them, or listen to them?

My answer:
Hmmm I'm averaging about 10-11 books a month now. Soo 2-3 books a week. Those are almost all bound copies or ebooks. I haven't been listening to many audiobooks lately because I'm not taking any art classes and that's when I do a lot of my audiobook listening.

  1. Totally agree with you on The Other Boleyn Girl movie- I did not like it either.

  2. I have only seen the Other Boleyn Girl, so it sounds like I need to read it!

  3. The Other Boleyn Girl = Ick. I was so disappointed in it! And I loved the book! That's a really good idea! I hadn't thought to listen to audiobooks during art but maybe that's how I can get into them more. They're really hard for me to just listen to otherwise! Hope you have a wonderful Friday! ;)

  4. I haven't read HP books but the movies are good. I somehow find acting (and casting) in Twilight movies not good, but they have some good points.

    Have a great weekend!

  6. Let’s kick off Memorial Day Weekend with some scandal and controversy.

    I absolutely loved every minute of the Lord of the Rings films and felt they hit the mark when they brought Tolkien’s masterpiece to the big screen.

    Wait, wait. I can explain! Hop on over to my blog and hear me out – http://www.howardsherman.net

  7. The Harry Potter movies did do a fairly good job. I have to disagree with twilight though. I thought the books were much better than the movies.

I love getting comments! I'm always checking to see if I have any new comments. It's actually pretty sad how often I check for them really. So if there is anything you want to say about a post of mine, please say it! I want feedback :)

As of lately, I'm making the blog a no-award blog. I love getting them and I'm always honored, but I don't have the time to do all the things that are required of them. Sorry :(
Also, my "reply" button does not seem to be working in my comments on my computer. I have to use a different computer to reply back so if I don't reply, it's not because I'm rude, it's just that I can't.
