How do you feel about movie-adaptations of books? I make it a point to read the book before I even think about watching the movie, but if it's a book I really like, I don't watch the movie period. Something about it just moves me the wrong way a bit.
[But if I have no emotional attachment to the book, I'll watch away. Go figure.]
Do you watch the movies of the books you like?
Me personally, I tend to watch the film adaptions just out of curiosity. I always envision things in my head, so I wonder how the director will portray it on screen. I always, always, always read the book first though. I absolutely loathe when people say “Oh, I love Harry Potter…y’know, the films?” It actually makes my stomach turn.

Yeah, I run a Harry Potter blog (mugglenet) :) So I know what you mean, haha!

Title: Treasure Island
Author: Robert Louis Stevenson
Genre: Classic Adventure
Summary: The ultimate adventure story of epic proportions, Treasure Island is the original pirate story combining elements of betrayal, bravery, treachery and courage, presented with authentic nautical attitude, to form the most suspenseful novel I've read in many years.
Just wanted to display what the perfect submission for the Book Bucket looks like. I’m sorry, I love you all but for a literary blog…something like: MAH BOOK IZ CALLED TWILITE AND IT’S YOUNG TEEN FICTIN AND IT’S REALLY GOOD, PLEASE HAVE YOU REAd?

FUCK YES. Are you kidding?! John Green is like my favourite author (next to JKR)! I love everything that man does. And Hank is adorbs.
(Or equivalent holiday. No discrimination, sorry, it’s just what I celebrate!)
It’s called Battle Royale. It’s a Japanese fiction about 42 ninth grade students who get sent to an island and have to fight to the death. It was banned in Japan, it seems sort of similiar to the Hunger Games (but this one was published first). Anyone read it?
As soon as I’m back, I’ll post the Book Bucket so far and update about all of the exciting novels I got for Christmas. If you wanted to follow my personal blog, I may be able to update there through my blackberry…so check me out.
spraynard said: Hi, when will you be doing the Book Bucket thing? ^_^
Early next week! I’ve got a couple hundred messages to sift through. I’m going to be compiling it by the number of people who liked the book and then just by the overall quality of the mini-review, as well as my own opinions/experiences. Soon! It’ll be good, promise :)
By John Green and David Levithan. There’s this conversation of Will Grayson and his buddy. goes like this:
Buddy:so you’re g a y?
Buddy: So you put your thing where he defecates?that’s disgusting
Will: Well, you put your thing on where she U r i na tes and have her monthly period.
Buddy: Oh, I haven’t of thought
I agree. I was totally disappointed, considering John Green is my second favourite author.
So, did the queue just decide not to work today? Because all of my posts for today on here and on MuggleNet are both just…gone…
Honestly, I love Tumblr but they need to get their act together. This should be a proper blogging platform, this isn’t the project of some recent web design graduate. There should be some professionalism happening here.
