It’s true. I love movies almost as much as books. I can watch the same movie over and over and over again until it makes my husband nuts.
One thing I always try and do, is read the book before the movie. I am SOOOOO glad I read Twilight before the movie came into existence. My Edward was much hotter than Robert Patterson. Pretty much hotter than any other boy in existence–don’t judge. Of course, that was a very long time ago. (and no, I never went to the midnight launch at Borders for Breaking Dawn).
There have been movies that have portrayed the book horribly (Eragon) and movies that have been a real tribute to the story (LOTR). A long time ago, I watched Wuthering Heights (2009 version) because of that, I never read the book.
This year I’ve decided to partake in the 2013 Book to Movie Challenge hosted by Doing Dewey
