So I finally watched Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 earlier. It was, as expected, very emotional, and well, epic. Now I have that urge to reread the last book just to remember how it was, but then maybe I should just reread the entire series, right? Harry Potter wasn’t the one that got me into reading, but it’s definitely one of those good books that will transcend time. So as with everyone else: Thank you, J.K. Rowling.
On another note, my fourth book list came out at Female Network last week, but I wanted until now to post about it because it involves book to movie cross overs in honor of Harry Potter. :)
I’m not much of a movie person, but I like watching movie adaptations of books. I think I have learned the art of not comparing the book to a movie, though. I find that I’m a bit more detached with the movie’s story, though and I like that because I end up enjoying the movie in an entirely different manner. Unless it’s an absolute favorite, of course. :)
Thanks to some Filipino Book Bloggers for their suggestions on this list. Drop by and leave a comment! :)
I love most of the titles on this list! Yay for Interview With The Vampire, Stardust, Dead Poets Society, LOTR, and Confessions of a Shopaholic. :)
The list made me realize that I’ve seen almost all of these movies, even if I hadn’t read the book, like He’s Just Not That Into You and Percy Jackson. Haha. :D
I didn’t read He’s Just Not That Into You because I didn’t really agree with all their tips (based from the table of contents). The movie’s pretty cute, though — I have a big crush on Justin Long. Haha.
I’ve only read the first book of Percy Jackson. I have books 2-4 here at home, but I’m too lazy to pick them up. The movie is very different from book 1, though.
Hi Tina, saw your article at Female Network and I loved the list! I like the idea of placing the book cover and the movie poster side-by-side :-)
Thanks Aimee! :) It was my editor’s requirement. :)
