Kids love when I tell them our read-aloud is a true story. They are fascinated by history when presented by authors like Meghan McCarthy. It's sad how quickly they lose interest in history because of school. #picturebooksareeverybodybooks #kidlit #istillhaven'tseenthemovie #thebookwasbetter

Having finished the book, decided to watch the movie last night and I know you won‘t be shocked to hear this come out of a Litten‘s mouth, but

THE BOOK WAS BETTER THAN THE MOVIE!

And I mean quite a lot better. They somehow managed to take an exciting and fascinating book and make it into a film as dull as dishwater. I thought they‘d focus on the action bits in the jungle and it was more than 30:00 in before anything dangerous happened. 🤦🏻‍♀️

Bookworm54 Yeah I got bored part way through the movie and gave up! 2y
KVanRead @Bookworm54 Too bad, it seemed like it would make a great movie 😒 2y

I saw the movie, decided to try the book. #TheBookWasBetter
Independence Day meets Maze Runner, toss in a little star crossed lovers and this is what you get. The book has great character development and storyline. Cassie is one hardcore kid making sure she keeps her promises to the ones she loves. 3.75/5⭐

It was my birthday yesterday and my husband stocked my YA, Fantasy, and comic bookshelf with some new beauties!!!!

I‘ve had a goal this year to read a book a week, and so far I‘ve been achieving that! What is your 2020 book goal?

GondorGirl Ooo- good choices! I've read most of the books in your stack... we must have similar tastes! 3y
persephanie_and_samson @GondorGirl oh that‘s awesome! Which one from the stack is your favorite? I need to catch up on so many series so I don‘t know which one to start with 3y

People often say “The book was better!” Do you always think that‘s true? Come find out which one I liked better for seven specific stories: https://youtu.be/wOZQ_eAtmfc

MidnightBookGirl I love both the book and the movie, but I am more than happy with the differences between them. 3y
EadieB @Butterflyamore I have read My Sister's Keeper, The Glass Castle, and the Phantom of the Opera but I've only seen The Phantom of the Opera movie and Broadway version. I agree with you that the Broadway version was way better than the book or movie. The atmosphere and the songs added much to the production and made that more memorable. I don't watch a lot of movie of the books I read but I just went to see The Goldfinch which I also loved the movie 3y
abookishbutterfly @EadieB I haven‘t read The Goldfinch yet but I‘d definitely like to before seeing the movie. The trailer for the movie does look really good! 3y
EadieB @Butterflyamore People who have not read The Goldfinch will be a little lost as the book was so long and the movie doesn't hit all the info as well as the book. I know I had to explain a lot of things to my husband. I just watched Midnight In The Garden of Good and Evil and read the book also. I actually liked the movie better as the screen does the book so much more justice. If I think of any more movies that I have seen, I will let you know. (edited) 3y

#X-cellentRead

Here are a few of what were "x-cellant" reads for me. To qualify I had to love them enough to read a 2nd or 3rd time. Several of these I have read twice.??

AlaMich I loved The Martian too! The movie was good, but of course, #thebookwasbetter 3y
Andrew65 Thought this was one of my posts for a minute, first five I looked at were all books I loved too. Obviously need to read the other 3! 3y
TheSpineView @AlaMich The book is always better!😊😋 3y
Eggs Nice selection!! 3y

Me watching Sleeping With the Enemy the day after reading the book 😂

They changed the main characters name for frick sakes! And they left out the cute kitten Banana, which is just completely unforgivable. OH, And of course they changed the whole ending.

Sigh... when will I ever learn not to get my hopes up.
#THEBOOKWASBETTER

ravenlee I saw the movie years ago (on TV, probably chopped up) and thought it was meh. Is the book worthwhile? 3y
Clwojick @ravenlee I quite enjoyed it. I‘m glad I read it, but definitely disappointed in the movie. 3y
cherinium That's one of the things that drives me nuts about the Game of Thrones TV series. 3y
