Hop and Follow!




Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee


This week's question: How many books do you read in a week? And in what format do you read them, or listen to them?


I read 3-5 books a week. The format depends on how readily available the book is. I switch between ebook and paper.

This week's questionWhat book-to-movie adaption have you most liked?  Which have you disliked?

I've most liked the Harry Potter series. I thought all of the directors did a good job of sticking to the major points and getting most of the good details into the movies. I really enjoyed the movie adaptation of Beastly as well. The book was okay, but I liked the movie. The movie I've most disliked would have to be....Cat in the Hat. I thought Mike Myers would be able to pull it off, but between him and some of the aspects in the movie I was pretty disappointed. 

What about you? How many books do you read a week? What's your favorite/least favorite adaptation??

  2. Hey

    I'd have to agree, Harry Potter movies are definitely the best.

  4. Let’s kick off Memorial Day Weekend with some scandal and controversy.

    I absolutely loved every minute of the Lord of the Rings films and felt they hit the mark when they brought Tolkien’s masterpiece to the big screen.

    Wait, wait. I can explain! Hop on over to my blog and hear me out – http://www.howardsherman.net

  5. I did like Harry Potter as well! Those were exceptionally good! Can't remember if I even saw the Cat in the hat--wasn't that Mike Meyers though? Jim Carrey did the Grinch who Stole Christmas, which was kind of funny! Don't remember reading a lot of Dr. Suess in my days though! I liked fairy tales (both Grimm and Disney!) and The Bernstein Bears for the most part!

    Here's my Friday Hops

    Have a GREAT weekend!

  11. I very much agree about Cat in the Hat. It was ridiculous!

    Gone with the Wind is my favorite movie, although not-so-favorite book.

    Happy to be hopping through! The face made out of books? So cool!

  12. The ads for Cat in the Hat made me decide immediately that I never wanted to watch it.

  13. Oh yeah, I fully agree that 'Cat in the Hat' was atrocious. I'm not a fan of Seuss to begin with but that movie was still a step down.
    Now following.

  14. The Harry Potter series certainly was a great adaptation, but the world I dreamed of when reading seems just a little more magical to me.

    The Cat in the Hat was awful! The cartoon version that was out when I was a kid I loved. I love Seuss! I remember this movie when I was little that had several of the books in movie format and I adored it.
