I 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
I’ve heard about this book by Becky Albertelli for a long, long time and I always meant to pick it up. I finally did buy it in February (mainly because the film was approaching and I needed to get a read on before I saw it!).

Yesterday, Sarah and I saw the Everything, Everything film together with our friend Becca. We’ve been looking forward to seeing this film ever since it was announced so it was so fun to go together!

2016 is set to bring us a whole heap of exciting movies that have been based on books.

Here’s a list of some of the most exciting ones that are due to be released in 2016 so you can get a head start and read the novels!
It seems like every John Green novel is going to eventually be turned in to a movie. First The Fault In Our Stars and now Paper Towns has been released the John Green hype is officially back in full force for many booklovers. I can only imagine how the much the internet will blow up when we get more information about Looking For Alaska. I am a massive John Green fan and have been since I first picked up The Fault in Our Stars back in 2012, but are these movies actually half as good as the books are?
