I am participating in Bout of Books 17 and am excited about reading books during this event.

I've decided to participate in the following Bout of Books Read-A-Thon challenge hosted by Lori at Writing My Own Fairy Tale is hosting the BOOK TO MOVIE CHALLENGE!

The rules for this challenge are simple:
All I need you to do is share with us your favorite book-to-movie adaptation and your least favorite book-to-movie adaptation. You can give reasons for your answers or just names, it’s really up to you how much you share.
My favorite book to movie adaptation is Red Dragon by Thomas Harris. I thought the movie version of Red Dragon followed the novel fairly closely.

My least favorite book to movie adaptation is Hannibal by Thomas Harris. The movie version of Hannibal didn't do the novel justice. I also didn't like Julianne Moore's portrayal of Clarice Starling... I thought Jodie Foster did a much better job portraying Clarice Starling!


  1. I haven't heard of Red Dragon but I may have to check it out... I hope you had a fantastic first day of Bout of Books!

  2. Favorite: I really thought that the movie Les Miserables followed the plot of the book very well. Of course, time could not allow for *all* the book - it was very long, and very detailed, but it did well in following the major story line, and the actors fit the characters. I did find it a little jarring, however, to see the Thernadier family in a comic role, but as such they did provide needed comic relief.

    Least favorite: anything Disney does to the children's classics, like the Winnie-the-Pooh stories and Mary Poppins.

    1. I haven't read or seen the movie version of Les Mis.... Wow, not liking Disney's take on children's classics!! Usually, most people love Disney's twist on movies.
