Why Films Can Be As Good As (Or Better) Than Books

chatI feel like there is often quite a bit of snobbery surrounding adaptations. There’s a constant thought of the book always being better than the film, often said before the film has even been released. I’ve felt like this for a long, long time and many aspects of the idea annoy me a bit! I decided to write this post after watching Charlotte’s (WonderfullyBookish) video on unpopular opinions and this came up as one. Continue reading

LGBTQ+ Book Club – The Perks of Being a Wallflower

BOOThis month we read The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. It’s one of mine and Sarah’s favourite books and I feel like a lot of our friendship has ties to it. We have both read it more than once before we chose it for Book Club but had never read it to focus on the aspects of sexuality specifically.

This is something I’ve been thinking about a lot recently since there are a lot of highly anticipated new releases out already or coming out soon.

London Weekend & Waitress Musical! (BEDM)

The soundtrack is one of my favourites and I couldn’t wait to see the story and songs performed. I also visited the Natural History Museum for the first time which was fab and stayed at a wonderful Airbnb! Thought I’d do a little wrap up of my trip including a couple of little bookish things I did! Continue reading

A Chat about The Perks of Being a Wallflower (BEDM)

I’ve been rereading The Perks of Being a Wallflower for this months book club (Thursday 30th May – come along if you wish!) and I’ve been really enjoying reading it for the third time. It’s different reading it now compared to when I first read it in my teens and then later at maybe 20. I’m now 24 and I still really appreciate it a lot. Continue reading

Dumplin’ Film Chat (BEDM)

Now, I haven’t actually read Dumplin’ but I watched the film on Netflix the other day and I absolutely loved it. A lot of people have recommended me both the book and the film adaptation but I just never fully fancied it. I wasn’t sure if I’d be a fan. However, I’m now right on the hype (better late than never). Continue reading
