Hoppin' time!



Book Blogger Hop

Question of the Week: "What book-to-movie adaption have you most liked? Which have you disliked?"

I loved Practical Magic, I thought the movie was sooo much better than the book. And I also loved The Notebook. Oh! And I have to throw in Girl, Interupted :P Which have I disliked?  I just recently saw Beastly, and I liked the book so much more. I wasn't the biggest fan of the movie adaptation. I thought it was really rushed and skipped a lot of the books most important scenes.





Question of the Week: How many books do you read in a week? And in what format do you read them, or listen to them?

I read about 1-2 books a week. Hard copies. I read e-books from time to time but not very often.

Happy Hoppin' everyone!

  1. I agree with you completely about Practical Magic - I could barely recognise that the film and the book were the same story. The film's much better!

  5. 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

  6. I really want to read Girl, Interrupted. I love the movie. I agree about The Notebook. To me, both the book and the movie are good on their own merits.

    For me, Gone with the Wind is my favorite movie, although not-so-favorite book.

  7. I haven't seen Practical Magic but I heard that it was good. I didn't know it was a book as well. Happy Hopping.

  8. I also love the notebook, although various adaptations appeal to me. I mean who can forget the forms of writing "The King's Speech" went through before it was turned into a film! That's ace!
