Musing Monday: January 9, 2017

monday

Musing Mondays is a weekly meme, hosted by Ambrosia at The Purple Booker, that asks you to choose one of the following prompts to answer:

I’m currently reading…
Up next I think I’ll read…
I bought the following book(s) in the past week…
I’m super excited to tell you about (book/author/bookish-news)…
I’m really upset by (book/author/bookish-news)…
I can’t wait to get a copy of…
I wish I could read ___, but…
I blogged about ____ this past week…

THIS WEEK’S RANDOM QUESTION: What do you think about books being made into movies or tv shows and do you always read the book first?


I wish I could read Empire of Storms, but… I keep trying and can’t seem to get into a SJM novel without thinking about, hoping for, and expecting to see Feyre and Rhys and all the lovely Night Court! I just can’t put my head in the correct world!

As for book-to-film adaptations, I honestly don’t have as big a problem with it as I probably should. Yes, it’s awful when they don’t do the book justice, but maybe I’m just used to that so my expectations are low… I really like the book-to-tv adaptation trend though. It has so much more time to play out the book, and so much more leeway to focus on developing the characters!

I don’t have a hard and fast rule for reading or watching first. Whichever I come across first gets experienced first. The only rule I have is that if the premise of a film version is good, but the execution poor, I always check into people’s reviews of the book to see if there is a good version of that story out there somewhere!


What are your opinions on Book-to-Film/TV adaptations?
