Songs that Remind me of Books

Songs that Remind me of Books

Hi guys! Today I decided to do something that I’ve want to do for a few weeks but hadn’t got around too before. Basically today I’m going to talk about some Songs that Remind me of Books. I know that almost everyone has at least one song that is somehow connected to a book and because of that I decided to write this post. Let’s see some songs that make me think of books every time that I listen to them. Continue reading

Favorite Book to Movie Adaptations

book to movie

Hi guys! Today I decided to talk to you about my favorite book to movie adaptations. I don’t know if you’re like but most of the times I’m really pessimist about the movies even before the release because I had a lot of disappointments already (*cough* City of Bones *cough*). Because of that I decided to talk about some book to movie adaptations that I actually really like and also a few movies that I haven’t read the book yet but want to. (Note: The books are in a non-specific order)

Favorite Book to Movie Adaptations

1. The Perks of Being a Wallflower – Stephen Chbosky

the perks

I loved this book and the movie was so well done. The cast was amazing and everything was great in the movie. Maybe Hollywood should start using the authors as screenwriters because Stephen Chbosky did a great job on turning his book in an amazing movie. And not only he was the screenwriter but he was also the director. How amazing is that?

2. A Walk to Remember – Nicholas Sparks

a walk to remember

I think I already told you how much I love Nicholas Sparks books. I’ve read all of them but normally I don’t watch the movie adaptations. I think I’ve only watched 3/4 movie adaptations of his books. This one is still my favorite and makes me cry every time (even when I know everything already).

3. The Hunger Games – Suzanne Collins

hunger games

I think that The Hunger Games movies are so well done. I loved especially the first one. There where a few things I would have changed (like you know, Peeta’s leg) but I still loved the movie.

4. Harry Potter – J.K. Rowling

harry potter

I have to be honest here. In this one I saw the movies before I read the books (and I still have two to read) but these movies are epic and changed a whole generation. I think I don’t need to explain a lot right?

5. One Day – David Nichols

One Day

This movie is one of the cases where I liked the movie more than the book. Don’t get me wrong, I loved the book but for some reason I really loved this movie and everyone should watch it because I don’t know anyone that actually saw this movie and it’s sad.

6. The Book Thief – Markus Zusak

book thief

Another one that I think that doesn’t need explanation. This book is amazing and everyone involved in the movie was able to make a really good (and devastating) movie. If you haven’t seen it yet you really need.

7. The Fault in our Stars – John Green

tfios

Let’s talk about another movie that makes me cry every time?? The movie was beautiful. Okay I didn’t like Ansel as Gus but I’m able to forget that and appreciate the movie every time I watch it.

8. The Hobbit – J.R.R. Tolkienhobbit

The first time I read The Hobbit I was thinking: “How are they doing 3 movies from this tiny book?”. Well, insert a lot of amazing scenes that weren’t in the book and that make the movie even better. But let’s be real, some of the scenes were still boring but I love this universe and it has beautiful views.

9. The Spectacular Now – Tim Sharpspectacular now

Another book/movie that I normally don’t hear people talk about. I love coming-of-age stories and I liked the book but seeing it as a movie was even better. This is another one that I think that everyone should read/watch.

10. The Chronicles of Narnia – C.S. Lewisnarnia

I know… the movies were not that good but I loved them (well, I didn’t like the last one) and I don’t care about what other people say about the movies. Every time this is on TV I will watch it and love it.

Honorable MentionThe DUFF – Kody Keplinger

duff

I’ve watched the movie last week and loved it. I loved the book and I was afraid to watch the movie because I knew how much they changed the plot but it actually worked. It was actually a good movie.

Books that I want to Read

1. The Invention of Hugo Cabret – Brian Selznick

hugo

2. Bridge to Terabithia – Katherine Paterson 

terabithia

3. The Princess Diaries – Meg Cabot

princess diaries

4. The Lovely Bones – Alice Sebold 

lovely bones

5. The Lord of the Rings – J.R.R. Tolkien

lord of the rings

These are some of my favorite book to movie adaptations and some books I want to read. I probably forgot a few movies but what can I do 😛 … Tell me in the comments what are some of your favorite book to movie adaptations and which books do you want to read..

Be, Room, Cliff Book Tag

be room cliff

Hi guys!! I told you the other day that I was going to do the Be, Room, Cliff book tag after doing the Marry, Kiss, Cliff Tag (see it here). Today is the day that I do it. once again it was a pretty funny tag to do. For this tag you have to choose 3 book female characters randomly and decide which one you want to be, have as roommate or throw off a cliff. Let’s start it.

Round 1

10

For the first round I got Clary Fray (The Mortal Instruments), Eleanor (Eleanor & Park) and Tris Prior (Divergent).

This round was quite easy. I don’t want to be Eleanor because she has a rough life and I wouldn’t want to go through what she went but I would love to have her as my roommate/best friend. Now between Clary and Tris I decided that I would like to be Clary more than Tris. So I would be Clary and I would kill Tris (not that killing her would change anything).

Round 2

20

In the second round the names sorted were Hermione Granger from Harry Potter, Tessa Gray from The Infernal Devices and Nehemia from Throne of Glass.

Just to start this round really well I would be Tessa. I’m not even explaining why. If you follow this blog you might know that I love this series (ans she has Will and Jem in her life 😛 ). I wouldn’t want to kill any of these girls but if I had to it would be Nehemia. This means that I would have Hermione has my roommate. Who wouldn’t want Hermione as her roommate?

Round 3

30

For this round the characters are: Hazel Grace Lancaster (The Fault in Our Stars), Feyre (A Court of Throns and Roses) and Alice Cullen (Twilight Saga).

Once again let’s start with the easy one, I would be Feyre without a doubt. For the other characters I wouldn’t want to kill any of them but I decided that I would like to have Alice as my roommate instead of Hazel. This means that I would kill Hazel. Sorry Hazel… It’s not that I don’t like you but I don’t want to be you and Alice would be a better roommate/best friend.

Round 4

4

In this fourth round the characters chosen were America Singer from The Selection, Luna Lovegood from Harry Potter and Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games.

Let’s start with the easy one. I would kill America because she drives me crazy and I don’t like her. I would finish The Selection series if she wasn’t this terrible main character that I don’t like. Between Katniss and Luna I don’t know who I’d want to be. Probably I wouldn’t want to be Katniss because I don’t want to participate in The Hunger Games so I would have her as my roommate. No one would try to mess with us. This means that I would be Luna which it’s not that bad because she’s quirky and a little bit crazy in a good way.

Round 5

50

For this round I got Isabelle Lightwood (The Mortal Instruments), Cath Avery (Fangirl) and Mara Dyer.

This round is quite easy even if wouldn’t want to kill any of them. I would be Cath because we are both fangirls and because she has Levi in her life. I would have Isabelle has my roommate/best friend because she’s amazing and once again no one would mess with me if she was my best friend. This means that I would have to throw Mara Dyer from a cliff. Sorry Mara. I don’t want to do it but I have to.

Round 6

6

This tag is almost in the end but we still have two rounds to go. For this second to last round the names sorted were Celia Bowen from The Night Circus, Celeana Sardothien from Throne of Glass and Anna Oliphant from Anna and the French Kiss.

I might love Celeana and the Throne of Glass series but I wouldn’t want to be her because she has to deal with a lot of stuff. This means that I would have her as my best friend and she could introduce me to Chaol and Dorian (and once again no one would mess up with me if she was my friend). I would be Anna because she lived in Paris alone (of course that my choice has nothing to do with St. Clair ok? 😛 ). This means that I would have to throw Celia from a cliff and that would break my heart but it’s something that I had to do.

Round 7

70

The last characters sorted for this tag were Cinder from The Lunar Chronicles, Bella Swan from the Twilight Saga and Juliette Ferrars from Shatter Me.

I’m going to say what everyone is thinking… I would throw Bella from a cliff. No explanation needed. I would have Cinder as my roommate and I would be Juliette. Once again this choice has nothing to do with the guy. I don’t even like Warner, he’s terrible 😛 … of course that I’d want to be Juliette because of Warner. He’s amazing and she’s a lucky girl.

So this was the Be, Room, Cliff Book Tag. If you end up doing this tag tell me in the comments so I can see your choices 😀
