Went to see the movie adaptation tonight. I feel like my experience watching the movie as an adult was proportionate to my experience reading these stories as a kid. Overall, very well done.

LibrarianRyan I agree. I quite enjoyed it. My younger self would have loved it. 3mo
ShyBookOwl @LibrarianRyan Yes. Great teen horror flick. Exponentially better than the Goosebumps movie lol 3mo
LibrarianRyan @ShyBookOwl definitely. This didn't try to be funny, or poke fun at itself. It just way. I really like how they weaved the stories together, and it left itself open for a sequel. 3mo
ShyBookOwl @LibrarianRyan Agreed. It didn't rely solely on nostalgia. I liked that. 3mo

I saw #appocalypsenow for the first time yesterday, since it was shown as 'final' directors cut for its 40th anniversary in conemas again. What a feat of cineastic and auditive storytelling! Now i really need to go back to the original since i never got further than the first few chapters. #reread #adaptation

Sharp Objects: A Novel | Gillian Flynn

Mehso-so

It was super obvious who'd be the bad guys here, but still like a car crash the emotional cruelty was so fascinating you just couldn't look/hear away. Gillian Flynn once again gives a unique perspective on misconseptions of the female psyche, motherhood and feminism with another visit to suburban America. Holy hell, people are fucked up! Will definately watch the HBO #adaptation too.

DebinHawaii Still have not read the book although I do have the HBO series DVR'd to watch. I was trying to do the book first but that may never happen...📚📚📚📚😬📚📚📚📚 5mo

Watched the #adaptation with my mom yesterday, after we both read the novel. It was okay, though they shortened the ending. Also the "bad guy" was super likable in the film, which made it a little weird. The book definately was more #bookish, but adapting an epistolary novel on screen ain't too easy, so I don't blame them. Additional plus: michiel huisman ??

BiblioLitten I plan to watch this over the weekend. 5mo
emz711 I miss the "letterness" in the movie 5mo
Buechersuechtling @Heideschrampf Never thought this could happen but … I perfectly know what you mean, nevertheless “the book was more bookish” made my day. I laughed even harder as I did when I readtThe answer to the third question that @julesG gave on this week‘s #HelloThursday by @wanderinglynn ‼️ 🤣 “The book was more bookish” – won😂der😂ful‼️ 5mo
Heideschrampf @Buechersuechtling you were right, it's pretty good! Too bad i don't use autocorrect 5mo

I was excited to get my hands on a copy of this book but I was also weary because I was unsure if anyone could do an adaptation of her diary justice. With that said, I have to admit that I absolutely loved the adaptation! The graphics were stunning and thoughtful and they did not take away from the importance and depth of Anne‘s diary. I definitely recommend it!. #annefrank #adaptation #memoir #graphicnovel

I have been waiting for SO LONG for this bookish #adaptation!! 😍🌂💥☂️💼 @RavenRenegade and I have snacks and blankets and have settled in today to marathon the rest!!

hermyknee I watched the first episode today and figured it came from a book, but I hadn‘t heard of it before. Is this just one graphic novel or a series of comics? 9mo
aeeklund @hermyknee There are currently two story arcs collected into trades and a third arc that is currently underway (the trade will release in August). (edited) 9mo
kricheal I binged it all on Friday night #sorrynotsorry to my poor aching body yesterday from lack of sleep but it was so worth it! 9mo
