Changing the World, One Book at a Time…

My Favorite Movie-Based Book

by | Dec 27, 2017

Hey Readers,
Today I thought I’d write a blog about my favorite book, or my case, series of books that have been made into movies. Nine times out of ten, when a book is made into a movie, I say that the book is much better then the movie. This is typically either due to the fact that the characters do not look at all like I pictured or that the plot of the movie did not stay very close to the book at all. For example, I know that many people, myself included, were angry when the ending to the movie, My Sister’s Keeper was changed to be completely opposite of the book because it changed the whole point of the story. However, there are some movies based on books that I’ve enjoyed. My favorite is The Hunger Games series because, for the most part, the plot of the movies in the series stayed close to the books and the characters looked much like what I pictured they would. Moreover, it was awesome to see the characters and their adventures come to life. What is your favorite book based on the movie and why? Comment on this blog post, or the social media post associated with it, and let me know so that I can get to know you better and maybe get a list of new movies to watch.  I love watching movies when I’m not writing. Until next time…happy reading and, as always, don’t forget to love yourself just the way you are 🙂
