Blog Hop and Follow Friday (17)

Book Blogger Hop


The Book Blog Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Crazy For Books. This week's question comes from Britta at I Like These Books: "What book-to-movie adaption have you most liked?  Which have you disliked?" 

Oh, this question is right up my alley. I am always complaining about book to movie adaptations. My list of movies that were based on books that seriously irk me is pretty long. I'll start by saying that I adored the movie version of The Outsiders, The Princess Bride, and The Diary of a Wimpy Kid movies (they are so funny). Inkheart was decent too. Now, the movies that made me wish I had waited to rent them at Redbox were: Eragon, Hamlet, Girl, Interrupted and some others that I forget. (Luckily)

Even though I thought the books were better, I did like these movies: Briget Jones's Diary, Jurassic Park, Holes, and the Twilight movies.




Follow Friday is a weekly blog hop hosted at Parajunkee's View and features Louise at Book Bliss. This week's question is: How many books do you read in a week? And in what format do you read them, or listen to them?


After reading all of the responses, I am feeling a little sluggish in my reading habits. Normally I can finish 2 or 3 books a week, but lately I have found myself only reading one a week. It has been so crazy at work! When I get home, I'm too tired to read! I can't wait for summer vacation. As for audiobooks, I can't listen to them. They drive me crazy. I like to imagine the characters in my own way, not in the form of an actor/actress. I just can't do it. I'm sure I could get more books "read" if I listened to audiobooks on my commute.

Let’s kick off Memorial Day Weekend with some scandal and controversy.

I absolutely loved every minute of the Lord of the Rings films and felt they hit the mark when they brought Tolkien’s masterpiece to the big screen.
(ducking as rotten tomatoes are thrown at me as the torches are lit and the pitchforks raised)

Wait, wait. I can explain! Hop on over to my blog and hear me out – http://www.howardsherman.net
