Ok, I've calmed down. The books took a while to get into for me, but overall I enjoyed them. For those of you not aware of THG, (not sure if that's possible) they are a trilogy of books set in the future. THG is the latest teen craze since Twilight and a lot of my friends haven't even laid a finger on a book before but have read and enjoyed them. Anyway, have any of you seen the movie? I haven't yet, but I am definitely going to. Did you all enjoy it? Did it live up to our expectations?
This book is AMAZING. I went to go and see the movie first because my mum loved the book but the movie isn't very good - in my opinion! She persuaded me to read the book afterwards to compare and I love it! I have read the book so many times it has fallen to pieces (my copy on the left ;)).
Some of the Harry Potter's
Most of you know I am a HUGE Potterhead. However, I only read the book first before the last three films. I'm glad I did too because they are fantastic.
The Diary of a Wimpy Kid
Before I saw/read it, I was slightly worried that it would be a bit too young for me to enjoy. It is aimed at a younger audience but I confess that I found the characters hilaroious! I read the book shortly afterwards which didn't take me long as it is mostly filled with cartoons.
What are your favourite movies based on books? Do they always work? I heard that J.K Rowling declined Warner Bros five times before she accepted to adapt her book into a movie. She didn't want to for the simple reason that people will watch the film instead of her book, and that the film might not be very good. Boy, I'm glad she said yes in the end!!
What books do you think will make good movies or TV series? Here are my ideas:
- Split by a Kiss by Luisa Plaja - this chick-flick would be like Mean Girls which is a great film!
- Gimme a Call by Sarah Mlynowski - another chick flick with fun twist.
- Missing series by Sophie McKenzie - I think that all three books (SM is in the middle of writing the third) would make a great series of films or a TV program.
- India Dark by Kirsty Murray - this would be a great film for everyone of all ages.
