Bout of Books

It’s Bout of Books time!!!! Are you guys excited?!?!?!?!?!

Good! Me too!!!!!

Just a quick check first, you guys have all signed up, right? If you haven’t, go here to read the instructions and then get yourself officially signed up! You can participate unofficially, but you aren’t eligible for any of the prizes if you aren’t an official participant.

Ok, now on to the challenge!

I’m so excited to be hosting again this time! We’re focusing on the exciting/dreaded book-to-movie adaptations with this challenge!

It’s super easy. All I need you to do is share with us your favorite book-to-movie adaptation and your least favorite book-to-movie adaptation. You can give reasons for your answers or just names, it’s really up to you how much you share. Here’s an example:

My favorite book to movie adaptation =

Catching Fire (The Hunger Games, #2) A girl holding a bow, pulling back an arrow, in a fiery circle against a black background.

My absolute least favorite/most hated adaptation ever =

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Harry Potter, #7) A girl and two boys, standing outside of a building with high turrets.

You can share your answers wherever you are updating your Bout of Books progress! Whether it’s on your blog, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Facebook, etc., then use that link in the Rafflecopter for the giveaway! (If you make one post or tweet for your favorite and another for your most hated, just use one of those links in the Rafflecopter.) You can also add your link to the Link Up form so people can come see your answers but that is completely separate from the giveaway. It’s just an easier way for people to visit each other, encourage each other, and share their love/hate for these adaptations! So I definitely encourage you to share your links there and visit a few as well.

Here are a few quick rules first:

  • You must be officially signed up with the readathon and you must complete the challenge to be eligible for the giveaway.
  • The Rafflecopter will only be open for 24 hours.
  • Winner will get their choice of book up to $10.
  • The contest is open to International readers, so long as The Book Depository ships to you. <—check here if you aren’t sure
  • The rest of the giveaway rules can be found here.

      I think a lot of it was because I had such high hopes for it but also because they just changed so much of it. And that Voldemort/Harry scene where they’re flying through the air? I still don’t know why that was there. I just don’t really understand why they changed so much of it.

  1. I’ll have to hunt down my choices this morning so I can snap an IG entry – but just wanted to say thanks for such a fun first challenge, and GOOD CHOICE for your favourite adaptation! I literally just watched Catching Fire last night, it’s one of my favourites too. 🙂

  2. I am starting the readathon by reading Me And Earl And The Dying Girl which I know has a great movie adaptation but I can’t use it for the challenge yet.
    Gonna get some pics for my faves. Back later 🙂

  3. Thanks for hosting the challenge! I did for the most part enjoy The Hunger Games movies so I agree with you there! But I can’t agree with your least favorite. I loved the HP adaptations. They are never as good as the books of course, but I liked them all the same. 🙂

  4. This was a tough but fun challenge – thank you for hosting it! Though I ultimately picked different ones for my favorite and least favorite, I’m with you on both of these. The first Hunger Games movie looked so much like what I imagined while reading the books, so it’s def up there for me! I was disappointed with HP 6 most of all because so many of the subplots I loved from the book were eliminated.

      I agree. I know why they had to leave so much stuff out but I didn’t always agree on what they chose. And yes, The Hunger Games movies had such a similar feeling and appearance to the books, I think that’s why I loved them so much!

  5. I’m a little surprised by Catching Fire. I thought the movie adaptions of The Hunger Games was just okay honestly but I’m happy you loved them so much. Deathly Hallows could have been a little better I agree but I loved the whole series overall.

  6. […] the challenge. Today’s challenge is to look at books to movies adaptations. This was done by Writing My Own Fairytale. The challenge is to share both our favorite and least favorite book to movie adaptation. We could […]
