Feature and Follow Friday # 11



Gain new followers and make new friends with the Book Blogger Feature & Follow! If this is your first time here, welcome! You are about to make some new friends and gain new followers -- but you have to know -- the point of this hop is to follow other bloggers also. I follow you, you follow me.

The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee's View and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it'll allow us to show off more new blogs!

How does this work? First you leave your name here on this post, (using the linky tools -- keep scrolling!) then you create a post on your own blog that links back to this post (easiest way is to just grab the code under the #FF picture and put it in your post) and then you visit as many blogs as you can and tell them "hi" in their comments (on the post that has the #FF image). You follow them, they follow you. Win. Win. Just make sure to follow back if someone follows you!



Are there any book to movie adaptations where you think the movie is better than the book?

For me, none. It's more detailed in books compare to movies because in movies they usually summarize it and they just get the important events and beautiful scene as well.

For example Harry Potter and Twillight, if you read the book first, you will notice that some scenes are missing.

  1. I understand. I had to pick my brain on this question. The books do usually end up a lot better than the movie.

  2. Hmm, you're right about that. Sometimes they're just too different to compare.

  3. I still haven't read the Harry Potter books. I finished book one and then I just stopped. :/ I agree though, they leave soooo much out in books.

  4. I agree. I think that it's also hard for us to judge a lot of these movies on their own because we HAVE read the books and we know how good they are. But still, I think that many movie adaptations are really entertaining.

  5. This is true. I feel like Twilight was waaaay better in the book than movie form. Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

  6. Truer words were never spoken . It's hard for an adaptation to live up to a novel. Books aren't constrained by a special effects budget.

  7. That's very true. They can never fit the entire book into a 1 1/2 to 2 hour movie. I was glad that they split the last HP into 2 so more of the book made it in, but really go ahead and make the 6 hour movie from my favorite book-I'll pay to watch it! Thanks for stopping by!

  8. I feel the same way, movie adaptations usually just leave me disappointed! But I did try to find some that I enjoyed as much as the books.

  10. I totally agree with you. Books are way better than movies. They always leave my favorite parts out of movies. Have a great week. New Google+ follower. My FF

  11. Thank you for visiting my F&F. Your answer is a very well constructed one and I agree, if you read many of the books first (like your examples of Harry Potter and Twilight) you will realize there are a large number of scenes missing.
