Follow Friday & Blog hop (8)

 
 
Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee's View

This week's question is:
 
How many books do you read in a week? And in what format do you read them, or listen to them?
 
A couple of books every week, that's my goal and what I normally have the time for. It depends on the size of the book and of cause what book it is.

This week's question is:
 
"What book-to-movie adaption have you most liked?  Which have you disliked?"
 
Harry Potter and Precious comes to mind as movie adaptions I liked as for some I didn't The Golden Compas and Eragon I felt like so much were missing even some important things to understand the story. So people who hadn't read the book could understand the details.

I had such high hopes for The Golden Compass, but it just fell flat . . . it seemed like it wasn't sure what audience to play to.

Let’s kick off Memorial Day Weekend with some scandal and controversy.

I absolutely loved every minute of the Lord of the Rings films and felt they hit the mark when they brought Tolkien’s masterpiece to the big screen.
(ducking as rotten tomatoes are thrown at me as the torches are lit and the pitchforks raised)

Wait, wait. I can explain! Hop on over to my blog and hear me out – http://www.howardsherman.net

Didn't see Eragon or Golden Compass but I've been trying to read Golden Compass but can't get all the way into it like I wanted! I was thinking of just watching the movie, but now I see that I can't haha.
