It’s time for another Top 5 Saturday, a weekly meme created by Mandy @ Devouring Books and this week’s topic is: books that have been made into TV shows/movies! Technically the topic only covers ‘movies’ but there are more TV adaptations that I can think of and that I’m really keen to check out. I’ve read the book of half of these shows/movies but others I’m still working on… but I’m determined to finish the books before I start watching it. Here’s what I got:
I feel like this book was love/hate but I fell on the love side! I devoured this chunkster pretty quickly coz I couldn’t put it down. The trailers for this show all look pretty amazing! 😍
I’m ashamed to admit that I still haven’t finished this book. To be honest I struggled a bit with the writing style (and I’m a Gaiman fan)! I wonder if I just didn’t read it at the right time. But I will read it before watching the show!
A Discovery of Witches
I read this book so long ago. I think I found the first book in the Norwich Public Library in 2012. Well, it’s been way too long for my horrible memory to deal with because I’ve forgotten so many details now; however, I do remember that I enjoyed it a lot! So I’m looking forward to re-reading it before watching the show!
The Sun Is Also A Star
I loved this book. There were a lot of elements that I normally don’t love–for example instalove–but I found myself not scoffing at it in this book. I loved how seemingly random characters were connected in the end and I loved how… their story ended! The trailer for the movie looks really cute so I’m looking forward to watching it.
So I’m actually still reading this. I think it was such a big mistake to join a group read for it when I was going through the biggest reading slump I’ve ever experienced. Its really affected my reading experience of it and now I’m struggling to finish it. BUT determined, I am.
