Today is day 1 of Bout of Books!!! I’m very excited about it! So far today, I’ve mostly had to rely on audiobooks and have listened to almost 1/2 of The Art of Racing in the Rain, which I’ve read before but never listened to before. It’s a lovely book and I’m enjoying the audio.
Anywho, today’s challenge is from Lori @ Writing My Own Fairytale. It was to select your most favorite book to movie adaptation & least favorite book to movie adaptation.
Favorite Book to Movie Adaptation
I saw the movie version of The Princess Bride first. I don’t love the novel, I’ll admit, but the movie has been a favorite of mine since I was very small. At first, I thought it was a legitimate fairy tale, and now I find it to be hysterically funny. It will always be wonderful in my eyes.
Least Favorite Book to Movie Adaptation
These movies are NOTHING like the books. The first movie was okay, maybe, but the second movie was AWFUL in my book. They changed so much that it was hardly recognizable and the stakes in Tris’s and Four’s relationship didn’t seem as high or as intense. The books are much better.
