Top Ten Tuesday: Reasons I Love Book to Movie Adaptations

Top Ten

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted over at The Broke and the Bookish. Each week, there is a certain theme assigned where you have to try to list ten for that category. For more information, visit their page here.

June 7: Reasons You Love _____

This week’s topic really caught my eye, since it was so open-ended. There are so many things I love it was hard to choose! I ended up selecting “book-to-movie adaptations” because I have so much to say about them.

1. the anticipation

This may sound strange, but I actually love the anticipation that comes while waiting for a new book or movie to release. I love counting down the days or seeing how close I am to reading or watching something I am excited for!

2. Extremely Accurate Screenplays

One of the best things for me when it comes to movie adaptations is when the author writes the screenplay. When you are sitting in the theater and you hear the exact same lines you read, it is just a really neat experience.

3. Similarities

While watching a book-to-movie adaptation, it is always fun to spot the similarities. Movies could go in any direction, so it is cool to see you favorite scene or character included.

4. Differences

Differences–the thing that sparks the most arguments about book to movie adaptations. Sometimes the movie will take a different path than the book, and sometimes it can lead to something great or something awful. I always enjoy seeing how the movie has a unique story to itself, because it is impossible to dully translate a book to a movie.

5. Gives Characters a Face

I am extremely bad at picturing characters while I am reading, so seeing other’s interpretations of the character is always helpful. There are times were if I see pictures or a trailer of the movie, I will imagine the characters that way. Also, I love when characters I pictured look exactly how I thought they would. For example, Daniel Radcliffe does not play Harry Potter–he truly is Harry Potter to me!! ūüėÄ

6. Helps Visualize the Setting

This is for books that have specific settings of places I haven’t been. When reading The Fault in Our Stars, I couldn’t picture Amsterdam the best. But after watching the movie, I now know what the Anne Frank House and the restaurant looked like in the book,

7. The Hype 

Seeing one of your beloved books getting the attention it deserves is a great feeling. When a book is announced to become a movie, while there are some that will just watch the movie, many will also read the book. In the end they all are enjoying the same story you love.

8. Picking Up Small Details

Sometimes, the movie producers throw in small Easter eggs for us readers. To someone hasn’t read the book, they wouldn’t notice these details. However, when we see them, ¬†we get completely giddy.

I personally love movies that are really accurate and adapt the book as best as possible. These adaptations can be a total hit or complete flop (looking at you Percy Jackson, Beautiful Creatures, Divergent, etc.) Here are some of my absolute favorite recent book to movie adaptations.

12 Days of Christmas Book Tag

Yes, Yes, I know that Christmas was yesterday, but that doesn’t mean all of the festivities stopped at midnight! It took me awhile to get into the holiday spirit this year, and I finally have it. Tomorrow I am going to post my Christmas wrap-up and then it will all be over, so I decided to squeeze in one more Christmas post before the year ends. Again, I wasn’t tagged for this, but I saw these on TinyObessions’s blog, it was the perfect post for today. Let’s get to the questions!

On the 1st of Christmas, my true love sent to me a partridge in a pear tree.

The partridge stood alone in the Fangirlpear tree. What is your favorite stand alone?

There are so many to choose from! I guess I will have to go with Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. I recently reread it (again) and fell in love with the story all over again. It is such a unique story and Cath is the most relatable character I have ever read, and I will forever love this book.

On the second day of Christmas, my true love sent to me two turtle doves.

The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #1)Love is in the air! Who is your one true pairing?

Ahhhh, I’m going to have to go with Percy and Annabeth from the Percy Jackson and the Olympians/Heroes of Olympus series. I tend to love relationships in series because it is (normally) not insta-love and you can really see the relationship grow. These two bring out the best of one another and I love watching it being incorporated into the story.

On the third day of Christmas, my true love sent to me: Three French Hens.

The Darkest Minds (The Darkest Minds, #1)In the spirit of threes, what is the best trilogy you have read?

I have read many trilogies, but The Darkest Minds is one of the main ones that I remember loving each book. It is common for trilogies to start off strong and get worse, but Alexandra Bracken tied up her story so well. It is one of the books where I honestly don’t want to read more of it (even though I would and love whatever she came out with) because everything was answered in a very satisfying ending.

On the fourth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me four calling birds.

Harry Potter Boxset (Harry Potter, #1-7)Since series usually consist of four or more books, what is your favorite series?

Do I even need to explain this one? Of course it is Harry Potter! This series has not only shaped my reading taste, but it has also shaped me. I will never not love this series! P.S. To all the Potterheads out there, it’s Harry Potter Weekend ūüėČ

On the fifth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me five golden rings.

Fairest (The Lunar Chronicles, #3.5)One ring to rule them all! Who is your Favorite Villain/Antagonist?

Hands down Queen Levana from The Lunar Chronicles. After reading the novella Fairest that gave us her back story, I fell in love with her character. She is one of those antagonists where you can almost reason with why they are doing certain things, but she is so twisted that you love to hate her. Levana is so complex and really just an awesome villain.

 

On the sixth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me six geese a laying.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Harry Potter #7)Creation is a beautiful thing. What is your favorite world/world-building?

As much as I don’t want to use Harry Potter again (XD), there really isn’t anything else that compares to Rowling’s work. She thought out every single detail, and it really adds another layer of magic to the series.

 

On the seventh day of Christmas, my true love sent to me seven swans a swimming.

Who needs seven swans when all it takes is one good animal sidekick? Who’s your favorite animal sidekick?

I am at a loss right now. I can not think of a single animal sidekick in a YA book. I’m going to cheat here and say Scarlet from the Lunar Chronicles, since Winter calls her her “animal pet.” I don’t even know if that works, but oh well.

On the eighth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me eight maids a milking.

The Last Olympian (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #5)Milk is so 18th century. Which book or series takes beverages/food to a whole new level? 

At Camp Half Blood they have plates and goblets that appear with whatever food you imagine. I don’t know about you, but that sounds pretty great to me.

On the ninth day of Christmas my true love sent to me nine ladies dancing.

Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1)Dancing is just one skill of a Lady! Who is your favorite kick butt female lead?

Celaena Sardothien is definitely the most intense heroine I have ever read. She could probably kill any strong leads in other books without a blink of an eye.

 

 

On the tenth day of Christmas my true love sent to me ten lords a leaping.

Clockwork Angel (The Infernal Devices, #1)How about your favorite leading lad?

UGGHH another hard one! Will Herondale from The Infernal Devices is always a great option. Plus, he likes to read, which is adds a ton of bonus points to him!

 

 

On the eleventh day of Christmas my true love sent to me eleven pipers piping. 

If I Stay (If I Stay, #1)What is your favorite book or bookish thing with musical influence? (It can be about music, reference music a lot etc.)

If I Stay showcases a variety of music and talks quite a bit about instruments. It was the first time I was introduced to the cello and Yo Yo Ma, while also incorporating my love for rock music.

 

On the twelfth day of Christmas my true love sent to me: 12 drummers drumming. 

Winter (The Lunar Chronicles, #4)Drum roll please…what is your favorite read of this year?

Winter by Marissa Meyer, mainly because I waited so long for this book and it ended up being *perfect*.

Harry Potter Book Tag

Harry Potter Tag

Picture from: xingsings 

I know I have done quite a few tag/award posts lately, but I just couldn’t resist this one. About a week ago, I saw this Harry Potter tag over at Summer’s blog Xingsings, and I knew I just had to do it! Harry Potter is my favorite series, so it was sort of a no-brainer! There are some VERY hard questions that I’m not sure how I will answer, but I’m going to try!

1. Favorite book? 

While I love every book, I particularly remember loving Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. This is where we get our first glimpse of the grown up Maruders, and I loved the entire Sirius Black story line. When I was reading the climax, I was absolutely shocked when I realized how Lupin and Sirius were connected. Plus, we got the time-turner in this story, which was a very neat method to use in the plot.

2. Favorite movie?

Deathly Hallows Part 2. The last two movies were brilliant, because we get to see everything wrapping up. There are so many emotional scenes in the last movie that always get to me, and I love the feeling of the last adventure with our favorite trio!

3. Least favorite book? 

I would probably have to say Chamber of Secrets.¬†Don’t get me wrong, I still loved reading it, it’s just the others ranked higher for me. Now if we are talking least favorite movie, definitely Order of the Phoneix, because I physically can’t stand watching Umbridge. I seriously cringe every time she speaks.

4. Parts of the books/movies that make you cry?

There are soooo many sad parts in the books and movies! One that is probably the most emotional is Harry’s walk through the forest. It is right after he realizes that he has to die in order for Voldemort to die as well, so he goes to surrender himself. The snitch opens, the resurrection stone pops out, he talks to his parents and such, and everyone watching dies of crying.

5. Favorite character?

I’m going to change this a bit and say favorite supporting character, and that would be Lupin. He is ¬†my favorite of all the professors, and I love his relationship with Tonks (in the books, as it is nonexistent in the movies). He lived such a rough life, finally found love and started a family, just for it to be taken away from him. If there were ever Maruder era stories, I would love to learn more about Lupin when he was younger.

6. What would your Patronus be?

Summer and I are patronus twins! Mine would definitely be a dolphin, because dolphins are awesome.

7. If you could have the Resurrection Stone, the Invisibility Cloak, or the Elder Wand, which one would you choose?

Invisibility Cloak would be sooo cool! I mean, just imagine being invisible!

8. What House would you be in?

This is forever the most stressful question. Pretty sure I would be Ravenclaw, but there is a very high possibility of me being in Huffepuff. ¬†I don’t even know. I need to take the Pottermore quiz I guess.

9. If you could meet any member of the cast, who would it be?

Emma Watson, because I loved her portrayal of Hermione, and she seems like a very down to earth person. She has definitely done things outside of Harry Potter, and is an advocate for many great things. Would love to meet her!

10. If you were on the quidditch team, what position would you play?

This is a trick question, because I know that I would not be able to do absolutely any of the positions. Is watergirl an option, because I choose that.

11. Were you happy with the ending?

Most definitely! I see many people complaining about the epilogue, but I thought it was a nice way to end a great series.

12. How much does Harry Potter mean to you?

Harry Potter isn’t like any other book series. It is something beyond special that will always be close to my heart.

Wow , that was fun! If you are a lover of Harry Potter, I tag you! Siriusly, you really need to answer these questions, because the tag is very cool.

The Sunshine Blogger

I was nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award by Lindsay Detwiler! She had a great blog, and you should definitely it out! For this award, your tagger gives you eleven questions to answer, and then you give 11 questions for the people you tag! Let’s get started with her questions!

Her questions

1. What book most changed the way you think about life and why?

Harry Potter, forever and always. After reading this beloved series, I learned that you can always look for the magic in life.

2. What is your favorite picnic food?

When I think of picnic, the first food that comes to mind is definitely a deviled egg. I have loved eating this for as longa s I can remember ūüôā

3. What is your favorite place in your hometown?

My local library was redone a little over a year ago, and now it is absolutely beautiful! It has a very modern look and is much bigger than the old one. Plus the YA section is huge now, which makes me *so* happy.

4. What was your favorite food as a child?

I loved the good old-fashioned peanut butter and jelly sandwich. I actually still like them a lot! I’m not sure how many pb&j’s I have had in my life, but it is sure to be a high number!

5. Which celebrity would you be most likely to be friends with?

Jennifer Lawrence most definitely. She is one of those celebrities that seem very grounded and down to earth. I know many people say that about others, but she really seems genuine. She fangirls herself when she sees all these major stars, which would totally be me if I was famous. I just love her!

6. What song summarizes your life motto?

On Top of the World by Imagine Dragons! I want to live a happy life where I truly feel like I’m on top of the world. It’s such a positive song, you can’t help but smile when you listen to it.

7. What was the best class you ever took?

I had a humanities class once that was absolutely awesome. We went into all the subjects of music/art/film/dance, and I learned so much during that class!

8. Who has inspired you the most in your life?

Ahh this is sort of a tough question. I may have to come back to this one after some thinking.

9. Tell us something that has made you laugh in the past week.

I’m currently in the process of reading Assassin’s Blade right now, so there was most definitely something that Celaena said that made me laugh.

10. What is your favorite thing about summer?

Swimming! I love to just hang out by the pool, and I wish I could swim year round!

11. What would be your six word memoir? (In other words, you must summarize yourself in only six words).

Nothing ever beats out your family.

I am actually blown away that it is August! July was gone in a second!

HERE ARE SOME OF MY RECENT POSTS:

The past few days were sort of busy for me, so I didn’t get everything I want in ūüė¶ I will be getting to them next week though!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Currently reading

The Assassin's Blade (Throne of Glass, #0.1-0.5)

 UPCOMING POSTS

  • Top Ten Tuesday: Fairytale retellings
  • In the Library:¬†Recommending Science Fiction
  • Harry Potter Tag
  • Anticipated Reads Coming Soon

These are just some of the post ideas I have this week. Since I got two reviews in last week, I moved Heir of Fire back. You will be seeing it this week, because I have so many feelings about this series.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLOG IMPROVEMENTS

As you know I am slowly changing my blog up. I’m thinking on making a TBR index page, and keep my top ten books on my tbr list. I think it would encourage me to read them so I could update the page more often. Keep a look at for that!

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

RANDOM UPDATES

  • Bath and Body Works released the Fall candles the other day and I am beyond excited. Fall is probably my favorite season, and I can’t wait for it to get here! As much as I love swimming and flip flops, I’m ready for sweaters and pumpkins!!
  • I went to a bookstore the other day and walked out with nothing. It was hard, but I’m trying to read the books I got before I buy anymore (which is very difficult btw).

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Buddy Read Results

So that was a big fail on my part. I honestly went into this thinking the book would be thought-provoking and that I would have more discussions on it, but I had nothing. It didn’t stand out overall and was just ehhh. The buddy read this time didn’t go as I had hoped, but next time, I hope it’ll be better. I’m considering teaming up with someone and doing it together or something, I don’t know.

Akarnae by Lynette Noni on Sale

 

Featured Image -- 1739¬†This past week on Lynette Noni’s blog (located here), there have been digital giveaways of her debut book Akarne. This is the first book in The Medoran Chronicles series. I was fortunate enough to win one of these copies! The giveaways are over now, but if you still have your eye on this book, I would suggest buying it now! Right now on Amazon and until the end of the month, Akarnae is only $0.99!! This is a great price for a book that is number one on Amazon’s “Hot New Releases in Coming of Age.”

I personally have seen a lot of great stuff on this book, but I don’t know too much about it. I just read the summary and it sounds pretty awesome.

¬†”¬†With just one step, sixteen-year-old Alexandra Jennings’s world changes–literally.¬†Dreading her first day at a new school, Alex is stunned when she walks through a doorway and finds herself stranded in Medora, a fantasy world full of impossibilities. Desperate to return home, she learns that only a man named Professor Marselle can help her… but he’s missing.While waiting for him to reappear, Alex attends Akarnae Academy, Medora’s boarding school for teenagers with extraordinary gifts. She soon starts to enjoy her bizarre new world and the friends who embrace her as one of their own, but strange things are happening at Akarnae, and Alex can’t ignore her fear that something unexpected… somethingsinister… is looming.An unwilling pawn in a deadly game, Alex’s shoulders bear the crushing weight of an entire race’s survival. Only she can save the Medorans, but what if doing so prevents her from ever returning home? ¬†Will Alex risk her entire world–and maybe even her life–to save Medora?”¬†

I know right, sounds pretty great! I’m going to try and read this as soon as I get the link and then I will have a review posted as well. If you aren’t sure if you’ll like this book, here is a convincing photo:

Summer Bookish Bucket List

There are summer bucket lists. There are summer book lists. But what about a summer bucket list that revolves around what you do with books. Many people will make their “summer book bucket list” and it will have all the books they want to read during the season. On this list, I’m going to give you some other ideas to do over the summer that involve books. Some of these will be harder, depending on where you live and what is available to you.

1. Read a book in a summer-y spot

This is totally customizable for you. Whether it’s reading on the shoreline or by the pool, pick a spot to read that you don’t normally get to read at throughout the year. For me, I read a lot by the pool or on my porch.

2. Take advantage of your library

Throughout the year things get so busy that many people can’t find time to do this. If you have a library nearby, take a day to go and just stroll around. Actually look through shelves you wouldn’t normally look at. Even sit down and read for a while in the serene silence of the library. It can be very calming and relaxing experience where you can just sit down in the quiet and do what you love.

3. Try a book out of your comfort zone

Trying a new food is a common objective you will find on normal bucket lists, so for us readers, the equivalent is trying a new book! So if you are normally a fantasy fanatic ¬† venture out of your comfort zone and try contemporary. Maybe look into a completely different genre you haven’t tried like mystery, steam punk, or horror. You will never know if you will like it if you don’t at least try it.

4. Start a book blog!

If your passion is reading and you love to talk about books with others, start your own blog. There are different forms of book blogging. You could strictly post you’re own reviews or you create book-related contact or even be a mix of both. There is no right or wrong way, it’s just whatever you choose to do. Be warned though, if creating original content, make sure you don’t steal from other people!

5. Have a full-out book marathon 

In summer, there may come a day where you have absolutely no plans. These are great days to just have a reading marathon. Tackle your reading list and cross some books off. You could just read all day or you could marathon a series over the course of a few days. When you read an entire book in a day, there is this amazing, satisfying feeling that comes with it, and it is just my favorite thing. If you get online there are plenty of read-a-thons that go over a course of many days.

6. Read a summer book

I don’t know about other people, but my reading mood goes through phases. There are times in the summer where I just want a cute summer contemporary. Also, I really like reading Harry Potter toward the middle and the end of summer. When I originally read the series it was during this time of year, so it’s fun to go back and reread a little.

7. Attend an author signing or book event

During the summer there are several book events and author signings that go on. I, unfortunately, never have many of these close by, but I know many people do. These events always look super fun, and you can really be introduced to a lot of different books this way.

8. Book-to-Movie adaptation marathon

There are so many movies based off books that you can watch. I mean there are 8 Harry Potter movies that are just waiting to be loved. Some other series would be Lord of the Rings, Chronicles of Narnia, and The Hunger Games. You could even put a theme to it if you want. Have a Nicholas Spark day or Young Adult Romance movie day. So many options, so go pop some popcorn and get to movie watching.

 

So there you have it! I hope this gave some of you ideas of what to do since it is now officially summer the season.

Top Ten Tuesday: Inspiring Book Quotes

fb76c-toptentuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week they give a certain topic or question and you have to try to list your top ten. This week asks you to give quotes that are inspirational to you in some way. I know some of these are exactly inspirational quotes, but they are some of my favorites that make me happy. As always, they are in no order.

 “Happiness can be found in even the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the lights.”   ~J.K. Rowling, Albus Dumbledore

 “Sometimes, you read a book and it fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book.”   ~John Green, The Fault in our Stars

“There is nothing more profound than creating something out of nothing.”   ~Rainbow Rowell, Fangirl

“Sometimes the best way to find out what you are supposed to do is by doing the thing your not supposed to do.”     ~Gayle Forman, Just One Day

 “Aim higher, in case you fall short.”   ~Suzanne Collins, Catching Fire

“Each day means a new twenty-four hours. Each day means everything’s possible again. You live in the moment, you die in the moment, you take it all one day at a time.”    ~Marie Lu, Legend

“I don’t think you have to do something so big to be brave. And it’s the little things that are harder anyway.”   ~Morgan Matson, Since You’ve Been Gone`

“Sometimes you make choices in life and sometimes choices make you.”    ~Gayle Forman, If I Stay

“What is the point of being alive if you don’t at least try to do something remarkable?   ~John Green, Paper Towns

This following quote isn’t from a book, but from Hank Green, and it is the best ever.

“Read Books. Care about things. Get Excited. Try not to be so down on yourself. Enjoy the ever present game of knowing.”

J.K. Rowling Book Eight Speculations

Yeah, you read the title right. The past few days there has been all kinds of buzz about the newest J.K. Rowling interview on the Today Show. It has been eight years since Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was published, and every fan has the sasme question. Will there ever be more to our beloved series? There has been a lot of speculation that she has been writing a possible book eight, especially since she has been keeping a low profile. When asked directly, she replied no, and that she hasn’t been writing another Harry Potter book.

All of you fans just died a little inside didn’t you? Rowling, however, did leave us with a small glimmer of hope with this quote.

‚ÄúI‚Äôve always said I‚Äôm not going to say I definitely won‚Äôt because, because I don‚Äôt see why I should say that. You know, it‚Äôs my world, and I might choose to step back into it. And in a way, I am stepping back into it.‚ÄĚ  

At the end she was referring to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, since it is in the process of becoming a movie. But she didn’t deny the possibility of re-entering the Wizarding World. Even though another book wouldn’t follow the story of Harry, Ron, and Hermione, it would still be centered in this world. Maybe second generation Potters, or even a prequel? Who knows.

I personally think that of all the authors I have read, the only one who would really go back and re-enter their world would be J.K. Rowling. Other authors put the story to rest after the last book, but she always releasing little shorts. As much as I love Harry Potter, I am glad that she said no more of the golden trio. I love them of course, but I feel their story was wrapped up perfectly in the epilogue. Of course, if for some reason another story about them was released, I would read it immediately, because it Harry Potter! 

What do you guys think of the speculations? Do you think it will happen or is she just giving us false hope? Are you like me, and think that everything ended nicely, but would still read more anyways?

Top Ten Tuesday: Double Feature

fb76c-toptentuesday

 

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created by The Broke and the Bookish.¬†Each week they give a certain topic or question and you have to try to list your top ten. The past few weeks I haven’t cared much for the topics or completelgy forgot about the ones I wanted to do. Since I haven’t done a top ten tuesday in awhile, I decided to mix it up a bit. I’m going to do 5 from one category I want and then another 5 from another category. Yes, I know it is Wednesday. (Oh well)

Top Five Characters You Would Like to Check Up On

1. The Whole Heroes of Olympus Crew- Blood of Olympus was not a good enough finale for me. There wasn’t much closure with the characters we love (cough cough Percy and Annabeth) and I would really like to see if Leo makes his way back to his friends.¬†

2. Harry Potter Crew- Specifically I want to check up with the second generation of kids and Neville Longbottom. I know Harry potter has the closest thing to a perfect ending ever, but I always want more of this world.

3. The Darkest Minds- I need to know that Liam, Ruby, Chubs, and Zu are okay and see how the government is rebuilding America.

4. Eleanor and Park- Because after the way that ended, I need to check up on these characters. I want to see Eleanor in her new life, and see if Park ever made it back to her.

5. Hazel Grace Lancaster-¬†This would be the saddest check up of them all. I would see how she’s coping without Gus and see where her overall health is at.
