I probably won't see the movie in theaters (I'll wait for Netflix) but I like to make sure that I read the book before I watch the movie!
A really heartbreaking book. Look for a review up soon!
So, what are you reading this week?
Yes, I don't think I have Something Borrowed...I have read others. The similar names sometimes confuse me!ReplyDelete
I believe I read Something Blue...
Yes, I like reading the book before the movie, too.
Here's MY MONDAY MEMES POST
Oh, I loved Something Borrowed -- and am really looking forward to seeing the movie! Like you, I try to always read the book before heading to theatres... though I didn't get a chance to finish Water for Elephants before seeing it last weekend.ReplyDelete
I bought Something Borrowed from a thrift store the other day. I knew it was coming out in the theaters, and I hate not reading a book before seeing its movie adaptation. Part of me (the nerdy part) loves being able to compare/contrast the two works.ReplyDelete
Something Borrowed wasn't my thing, but I hope you enjoy it! Cleopatra has been giving me the stink eye for about a year now...I should really pick that one up soon.ReplyDelete
Happy Reading week!
I saw Something Borrowed yesterday at the theater, it was cute! I like to see the movie first, so the movie isn't ruined for me... If i read the book first then I can see all the discrepancies. No matter what, I will like the book more.ReplyDelete
I haven't read any Emily Giffin but heard a lot about her. Cleopatra has been on my TBR list for awhile...darn library waitlist! Great picks!ReplyDelete
My daughter loved Emily Griffin and can't wait to fit the movie into her schedule. You other two books look very good to me!!ReplyDelete
@Creations by Laurel-Rain Snow I'm planning to read Something Blue soon!ReplyDelete
@Meg I still haven't seen Water for Elephants! I'll probably wait for it to come out on Netflix.ReplyDelete
@Jenna (Literature and a Lens) I love comparing and contrasting too. I tend to drive anyone who comes to see the movie with me crazy afterwards with my nerdy endeavor :PReplyDelete
@Alison's Book Marks I'm very, very excited to get started on Cleopatra! I've been waiting to read it for awhile. Let me know how you like it once you read it!ReplyDelete
@hypermak I usually like the book more as well. I think in a lot of ways, the book can be more descriptive than the movie. Words can describe things more accurately, I think.ReplyDelete
@Kat P I know! I had to be on my library's waiting list for probably about a month to get Cleopatra. Ick!ReplyDelete
@dollycas aka Lori I'm so excited to finally get to read Cleopatra! As Nature Made Him is a great book but I wanted to punch the doctor in there. He was pretty unethical IMHO.ReplyDelete
I saw Something Borrowed in the theater this weekend and didn't realize until later that it was based on a book. The movie was pretty good, but I suspect the novel was a lot better.ReplyDelete
Hope you enjoy it!
