Reels & Reads: An Introduction
As book nerds, we all know that Hollywood's interpretation and visualization of a book doesn't always quite match our own. With that in mind, I'm starting a new monthly post called Reels & Reads. On the last Friday of every month (hopefully!) I'll be discussing a book and Hollywood's attempt to bring it to life. I won't be nitpicking every single little detail that is different. I'm sure you can find that elsewhere if that is what you want to read. I will be writing about how the characters and setting appear in my head (and yours) vs. how they're portrayed on screen and whether the spirit of the movie matches that of the book. And, okay, I'll probably pick a tiny difference that bothers me WAY more than it should.
Do you have a fave (or least fave) adaptation that you want to discuss? I'd LOVE for you to be a guest on the blog! Just send me an e-mail and we'll schedule something.
In no particular order, here are some books/movies that I hope we can discuss this year (subject to change, of course):
The Hunger Games
The 5th Wave
The Maze Runner
The Book Thief
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
