The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Billy @ Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to their own blog.
Do you watch film adaptations of books before reading them?
(submitted by Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer))
I actually do often watch film adaptations of books before reading the book BUT not on purpose.
Most of the time, my husband mentions about halfway into watching something that it’s based on a book that he’s read already, and I should read it too 🤔(I love you, sweetheart) . That happened with Game of Thrones, Witcher and The Wheel of Time, most recently. I know there’s also been others too that are just not coming to me. And that’s just recently. We’ve been married for quite a long time.
Also, YA fantasy series that I’ve read often started with me watching the movie or series too – like The Shadowhunters, Hunger Games, Vampire Diaries, Gossip Girl, Princess Diaries, and Twilight. And I know there are many more. I see the movie or show then find out it’s based on a book, so of course I have to read it/them. The books are always better.
So, yes I do watch film adaptations of book before reading them BUT only because I’m completely clueless.
