THIS WEEK’S RANDOM QUESTION: Have you ever read a book after watching the movie/television version only to find that you don’t like the book as much as the adaptation?


 

I’m super excited to tell you about (book/author/bookish-news)…

I will be attending BookCon 2016 in Chicago in May! Me and one of my roommates from my freshman year of college are flying up to the Windy City, staying at a hostel (I feel like I’m back in Europe HA!), and attending this glorious gathering of all things BOOKS. Seriously, have y’all seen the lineup for this year?! It is insane – Alexandra Bracken, Ann M. Martin, Cassandra Clare, Colleen Oakes, Kami Garcia, Laini Taylor, Leigh Bardugo, Lauren Oliver, Maggie Stiefvate, Melissa Meyer, Meg Cabot, Melissa de la Cruz, Richelle Mead, Sabaa Tahir, Sarah J. Maas, Susan Dennard, Veronica Roth, Victoria Aveyard, and more! Like are you kidding me with that lineup? They will have to drag me out of the convention center. And I can’t even list how many publishing and book-related companies are supposed to have booths. I’m going to pack a second suitcase for all of the goodies I plan on bringing back.

If you plan on going too, let me know! I’d love to meet up with some fellow book readers and bloggers!

Have you ever read a book after watching the movie/television version only to find that you don’t like the book as much as the adaptation?

Hmmmm, I know this has happened to me plenty of times but I cannot think of a specific one at the moment. However, I saw the trailer for Me Before You when it was first released and now I’m in the middle of the book but I think I like the trailer more than the book, and that was just the trailer! Now you can all yell at me for saying that…


Do you have any exciting book news? Or preferred the movie/show to the book?

  1. I was going to go to BookCon but we ended up cancelling the trip 😦
    I’m reading Me Before You right now too! I saw the trailer, but I wasn’t really paying too close attention to it. I’m really enjoying the book though, even though I’m super nervous the entire time. I hope it ends well, because if it doesn’t I don’t know what I’m going to do with myself!
