We are almost an entire month into 2014 can you believe it. When we rang in the New Year statistical information started to flood the net. For obvious reasons, I was most interested in books that had released in 2013 and when I was looking for that information I found a lot of info about books that have/ or will be turned into movies. I thought maybe we could chat about it. In 2013 some of the biggest hits at the box office start on the shelves of books stores. The Hunger Games, Warm Bodies, Safe Haven all these money making titles came from popular authors. Even some classics came to the big screen last year including, The Great Gatsby and even a remake of Carrie What I’m wondering is which was your favorite? And to make it even more interesting, do you prefer print or screen versions of your favorite stories?
Now that we’ve entered 2014 there are many more print to screen transformations in store for us readers. Here are a few of the top titles: Divergent by: Veronica Roth, The Mortal Instruments by: Cassandra Clare, and Gone Girl by: Gillian Flynn who’s excited? Personally, I have mixed feelings on watching screen adaptations of the books I love. On the plus side, we get to see beloved characters that one time only danced from the pen to the, page to our imaginations. On the other, my imagination is different than yours and different than a director etc … so am I going to get to see the particular things about certain books that I love. It’s a gamble but it ends up being a gamble that I take. How about you?
