2015 Book to Movie Challenge – Announcement Post

Book2Movie

Hello friends! Do you love movies? Do you love when books you love become movies? Welcome to the 2015 Book to Movie Challenge which was previously hosted by Katie on her blog Doing Dewey. The objective of the challenge is to share your reviews of movie or TV book adaptations, and hopefully generate some interesting discussions over the course of the year.

The challenge is super easy and flexible comprising of two parts:

♦  A quarterly check-in where you can add a link-up to your reviews; and/or

♦  Participate in a read-along of four 2015 movie adaptations.

GUIDELINES

♦  There are no hard or fast rules.

♦  You can join at any time. You can participate in one part of the challenge or both. You can participate in one read-along or all four. It’s all about having fun and what suits your interests and time.

♦ Neither the book nor the movie has to be new this year.

♦ A TV show counts if it is movie length or you have watched at least 2 episodes.

READ-ALONG SCHEDULE

March 2015 Serena by Ron Rash to tie-in with the movie starring Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper

June 2015Paper Towns by John Green to tie-in with the movie starring Nat Wolff and Cara Delevingne

September 2015To Reach The Clouds by Philippe Petit to tie-in with the movie The Walk starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt

    I love adaptations. I am tempted to join this challenge but I already do a monthly post on the adaptations I watch, so not sure this would really be a challenge for me. Happy watching in 2015 🙂

      I love your monthly post! Did you ever finish series one of The Musketeers? I still haven’t caught up.

    I always want to read the books before the movies come out, but then I rarely watch the movies! Ha! But, it would still be fun to follow along. My daughter got Paper Towns for Christmas, and I would like to read it. I’ve read The Martian already, and the other two look great, too! This sounds like fun!

      Paper Towns looks really good. I rarely watch the movies too or if I do, it will five years after the movie was released.

  8. This is such a good idea. I do write book-film reviews on my blog, but never knew that someone had organised a challenge for it! 🙂
