Book Blog Hop and Follow Friday (May 27)

The Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Crazy-For-Books. Head on over and join the fun~! This weeks question is: "What book-to-movie adaption have you most liked? Which have you disliked?"
Wow I have so many, where do I start? I love the A&E version of Pride and Prejudice, it had a fab cast and an equally fab script that practically follows the book to the letter. I also love the 2008 BBC version of Sense and Sensibility, and my favorite Harry Potter movie is the Prisoner of Azkaban. One of my favorite books to movies is Ella Enchanted, it's nothing like the book but I love it anyway. I tend to like most adaptations of books to movies even if they're not accurate as long as they are good in and of themselves. But there have been many I didn't like, I really hated the Percy Jackson movie, which was horrible...one day they should remake it the way it's supposed to be made.


Follow Friday is hosted by Rachel at Parajunkee's View. This weeks question is:

How many books do you read in a week? And in what format do you read them, or listen to them?

Well it all depends on what mood I'm in. On a good week I can read two books. On a bad...none. AH~! I try not to think about that. It's very hard for me to read online, so I don't take too many e-books. I'm hoping to get a kindle maybe some day. I never listen to books because it's hard for me to concentrate on them and I don't really like listening to books anyway.
So how many books do you read? Do you like listening to books? What are your favorite Books to movies? Leave your answers in the comment section.

  1. Hey,

    hopping by from FF

    I really want a kindle but i think i'd miss actual books. I like the way they smell and i have all little bookmark gadgets etc(bad presents but sweet). Still want a kindle though.

    My favourite book is Clockwork Angel or Virgin Suicides.

    Movie would probably be any by Kevin Smith.

    I can read anything from one or two up to 8 or 9 depending.

  3. 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

  4. I'm blog hopping! Gone with the Wind is my favorite movie, although not-so-favorite book. I didn't see the Percy Jackson movie, but I really didn't like the book. Did you notice that the narrator said, "I got the feeling that..." all the time? Drove me crazy!

Don't hesitate to leave a comment I love hearing from you~! Because I am terrible at remembering to give out awards after people graciously give them to me, I have now made my blog an award free zone like so many others. I thank you for thinking of me though.
