Ok! so this is a weekly meme hosted by Alison Can Read and Parajunkee. It was a bit irritating when you saw something interesting yet you don't have any idea what it is, so I'm just going to tell you. Basically this is the place where you found new friends and followers! (Check out the host's posts to know more and join this blog hop!) This is my first time joining this so... sorry if I made any mistake. I prefer GFC, but Bloglovin's ok too. Here it goes!

Question of the week
Are there any book to movie adaptations where you think the movie is better than the book?

This is really hard, since I rarely watched movies. Especially when they are book to movie adaptations. I've watched Narnia and the Lightning Thief but I try to avoid reading the book (I'm a coward). I've also watched The Mortal Instruments and Hunger Games, love the books yet, personally, I thought the books were better. 

Maybe I'm going to go with the classic, To Kill a Mockingbird. No offense, but I thought the book was... boring. I don't know why, one day I was bored and I decided to watch the movie. I wouldn't consider myself as a fan of the movie, but I managed to finish it. A bit less boring, so definitely better than the book. (I'm really sorry, Harper Lee fans.)

How about you? feel free to comment below!

  4. Hopping through. It's hard to say whether To Kill a Mockingbird is better as a book or movie. They're both such classics.

  7. My problem when books are made into movies is that the characters are never as good as what I've visualized in my head!

  13. Ah, yes - the classics. I think that some of the classics might be a bit boring, but the movie versions are probably better. Can't think of a specific example, though.

  14. Arghhh I hated the City of Bones movie! Not only as an adaptation, but as a movie it was just horrible! I'm indifferent about The Hunger Games though.

  15. I really enjoyed City of Bones but I read it so long ago and from what I remember they changed a lot! I feel like they are doing that with a lot of the books to movies... Like they aren't staying true or at least trying to stay true to the book. I have to agree I'm not a fan of To Kill a Mockingbird! The book or movie! They were both boring!

  17. TKaM was a classic I had to read for school that I actually ended up loving. There weren't very many that I liked in high school, but I gained more of an appreciation for them once I graduated and got older. When you have a choice of whether or not to read a classic, I've found later on you appreciate them more, maybe because you don't HAVE to read them. It's always hard to read something knowing you have to for a grade. Even for a review sometimes too, lol.

    I've not read TKaM... only seen the movie. Which I do recall enjoying. My best friend read the book and loved it, though, so I may eventually get around to checking it out. We'll see. lol

  23. I read To Kill a Mockingbird in school and I wasn't a big fan of it. But I think I saw a little bit of the movie on tv when it was on. I was surprised there even was one. But glad to hear that you got through it. It is a classic after all:) Thanks for following me back, and I'm a new GFC follower!:)
