Book to Movie Challenge 2016 – Announcement Post

books to movies

Yes, it’s back! The Book to Movie Challenge is being rebooted in 2016 with more discussions, more monthly themes and more fun because let’s face it — the format last year probably bored all of you to tears! In addition, I’ll be giving away a few prizes throughout the year because bling is great motivation to participate.

GUIDELINES

♦  You can join at any time.

♦  Neither the book nor the movie has to be new in 2016.

♦  TV shows and mini-series count.

♦  Comic book and graphic novel adaptations count.

♦  Active participation in the challenge is required to qualify for prizes.

♦  Participation includes (but is not mandatory):

◊  Linking to a book to movie review on your blog

◊  Commenting on Book to Movie posts and participating in discussions

◊  Reading and commenting on the reviews of your fellow challenge participants

◊  Giving some of the mini-challenges a go

◊  Talking about the challenge on social media

♦  Prize winners will be randomly selected.

To sign-up for the challenge, post an introduction on your blog that names three (3) book adaptations in 2016 you’re excited about and tell us:

♦  Have you read the book and did you love/loathe it?

♦  Why are you excited about the adaptation?

♦  What do you think of the casting?

Here are some of the adaptations I’m excited for just to give you an idea of what’s coming up.

Link your sign-up post by December 31st at 12 noon EST to qualify for a prize. One (1) blogger will win their choice of book of up to $20 in value from the Book Depository.

Announce your sign-up on social media by using the hashtag #Book2Movie2016.

Thanks for joining and I can’t wait to read your sign-up posts!

    This sounds really exciting! Goodreads has a page I think of books that were made into movies. It’s actually more sizable than one would think.

    I didn’t do so well with this last year, since I barely watched any movies. Let’s see how this year goes! Glad you’re doing it again – it’s always fun to follow along!

    Well, I’ve been mulling it over since yesterday, but since you said the books and movies can be old, I think I will participate. (I don’t remember the last time I saw a movie while it was still “new.”)

      Yay! So happy to have you join in. I wasn’t watching a lot of new movies for awhile too. But anything you’ve seen that’s an adaptation counts.

    Very cool. I am excited to hate on Me Before You lol. I will have to do a little research to see what movies I’m looking forward to… old movies will be the way to go, I think! Classic adaptations.

    PS omg audio of The Days of Abandonment???

      The problem with adaptations really is which ones are worth watching. Days of Abandonment is tough for me and I’m having a break from it. After four hours of audio, I just wish she’d get on with it. But I really want to know how it ends.
