Book Blogger Hop 5/27

May 26th, 2011 Weekly Happenings!

Happy Summer Vacation :) for most of us anyway!

Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Crazy-For-Books.  It is a great little place to link up, check out new blogs and interact with other book bloggers.

Book Blogger Hop

This week’s question comes from Britta who blogs at I Like These Books:

“What book-to-movie adaption have you most liked?  Which have you disliked?”

I thought this would be really easy to answer, but it isn’t.  I guess one I have liked is New Moon.  I really enjoyed the Twilight series but thought New Moon was kind of long and drawn out.  When I saw the movie I thought they did a pretty good job of condensing and making it a good film.
The first movie that popped in my mind as a huge disappointment was The Lovely Bones.  The movie just didn’t it do the book justice.  I absolutely loved the book and was so thoroughly disappointed by the movie.  I really wish the movie would have been done a little bit better.  I often find that there are more times than not that I am disappointed in a movie based on a book.  I still believe that reading the actual book is much better than a movie any day!
Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend.  Be sure to take a moment to reflect and remember those who gave all in service of this great nation.

    A couple of people have mentioned The Lovely Bones. I’ve read the book, but haven’t seen the movie. Maybe I should skip it, huh?

    Glad to have found you via the Hop!

    If you really enjoyed the book, I would say skip the movie. One reason I really enjoy hops…so many great bloggers to meet!
