Book Adaptations Tag


 What is the last book-to-movie adaptation you saw?
Does Spiderman Homecoming count?? It’s a comic book adaptation…

What book-to-movie adaptation are you most excited for?
I still haven’t seen Love, Simon or The Death Cure… I need to watch both ASAP

Which upcoming book-to-movie adaptation will you definitely NOT see?
Not a movie but a show – 13 Reasons Why.  I heard the first season is decent but the second is bad and they’ve renewed for another season, despite complaints. I definitely won’t be watching.

 Which book-to-movie adaptation would you NEVER watch again?

The Golden Compass and Percy Jackson… Two of the worst adaptations ever, they make me so mad.

Is there a movie you saw that made you want to read the book if you hadn’t yet?
Jane Eyre (2011) – The book turned out to be even better! The Maze Runner – The films turned out to be way better.

Conversely, is there a movie that made you never want to read the book?
Ender’s Game… Didn’t like the movie and have no interest in reading the books.

Name an adaptation that has almost nothing to do with the book it’s supposedly based on.
The Scorch Trials… Though as I said before The Maze Runner movies are actually better!

Have you ever left the theatre during a movie adaptation because it was so bad?
I’ve never actually left, but Batman vs Superman made me want to… Had to get my money’s worth ha.

Do you prefer to watch the movie first or read the book first?

Read the book definitely!

How do you feel about movie adaptations that age characters up? (ex. characters that are in middle-school, but in the movies, they’re all 18)
Doesn’t bother me too much, if it’s reasonable.

Do you get angry when the actors don’t look like you thought the characters looked?

Hmm… Not really, if the actor plays the character well. I think that’s the most important part.

 Is there a movie you liked better than its book?
Stardust by Neil Gaiman! I freaking adore the movie but wasn’t too impressed with the book. I saw the movies first, so that’s probably why.

 Name a book that you would love to see made into a movie.
If done well, the Daughter of Smoke and Bone series would be amazing!

  1. omg the Percy Jackson adaptation was SOOO DISAPPOINTING. gahhhhhh. although, I admit I have a very soft spot of Ender’s Game (it’s Asa Butterfeld ok?), but the book is different. If you’re looking for something more political and with a larger focus on Ender’s family (his brother’s political aspirations & also about his sister) then I recommend checking the book out, but if you didn’t like the movie and don’t care about in-depth sci-fi politics, then it’s probably not worth checking out, lol.

  2. Oh yeah Percy Jackson. The second movie was even worse. I watched the first one before reading the book (I know) so I am slightly fond of that one, but man Sea of Monsters was so bad.
