Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. This weeks theme is Books I need to read before watching the film/TV show.
Books I need to read before watching the film/TV show
I don’t always want to read the book first. Like Game of Thrones, I love the TV series, but have no real interest in reading the books. But mostly something about a book just makes me want to grab it first, before I sit down with my popcorn to watch. And even for books where I enjoyed the movie, I’m usually left feeling the book was better. So I’ve enjoyed the experience more for having read the book first.
The ones where I already own the book!
I had bought some of these before they were movies (or before they were being made in to movies). But now I’m even more eager to read them.
The others that I need to buy/borrow from library
I can’t believe I haven’t read a Joe Hill book yet, but really want to. The others have been on my TBR since they came out!
The rumoured adaptations that are on the way
I think these are both very powerful books and if I just watch them, that I’d lose a bit in translation. I feel they need to be read to do the stories justice.
