Musing Mondays - Books to Movies

Musing Mondays2Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about movies based on books…

What happens when you see a movie based on a book/story, especially one you’ve not read? Do you feel the need to track it down and read it?

My answer...

I used to insist upon reading the book before I'd see the movie. However, recently, I go with whatever fits the timing. I still haven't read The Reader or Revolutionary Road, but I've seen both movies because they were out and my husband wanted to see them too. The same thing happened with Twilight. I realize, now, that it doesn't really matter.

  1. It depends! However, I like to read first before I watch the movie!

  2. I really have to read the book first before I watch it. I have a stack of movies saved on Sky + waiting for me to read the books first.

  3. I'm like just depends! :)

  4. I would always prefer to see the movie first, take the best of that, and then read the book to fill out the limited movie.

  5. There are some movies that I have to get the book, others I can leave alone. The Reader is one of those, saw the movie and have no desire to read the book.

  6. I simply won't read a book after I've seen the movie, but some books aren't that interesting to me, so I'd rather just see the movie (especially if it's chick lit).
