Hello and happy rainy Monday. Hopefully it’s not raining where you are…unless you like rain then hopefully it is raining where you are!
In case anyone needs a reminder or is new to the Bookmark Chronicles, here are the rules: Every Monday I will post a This or That Challenge where we will choose between two characters or scenarios. On Friday we will see which scenario/character wins. Feel free to either comment your choice below or make your own post and link it back here! 🙂
By no means do you have to feel obligated to do every single challenge, but I would love to hear all of your opinions! If you can only really talk about one scenario then go for it. Also, if you have any suggestions please let me know!
Do you watch the movie first
Read the book first
I am a firm believer in reading the books first! I hate watching a movie if I haven’t read it first. The last time that happened, my friend had just given me Divergent to read but I hadn’t started yet. A group of friends got together for a movie night and wanted to watch it and I had to because I was outnumbered 😦
I kind of feel like a good opinion can’t really be based off of just the movies because there’s always a good portion of information that’s left out. And I absolutely hate going to the movie with people who didn’t read the books because they ask questions and they have no idea what’s coming but you do.Also, the quality of the movie essentially comes down to how well a 500 page book is fit into a two hour time frame, so if important details are left out then the movie, for me, isn’t going to be that great.
So I will (try to) always read the book first. Even if I don’t read the book first, I have to rewatch the movie after I read the book so that I can judge it properly.
What about you? Books or movies first (no “it depends”)! Pick one!
