Book Blogger Hop

This week's Question: 
What were your worst movies based off of books?

This one is hard because while the movies tend to be different I find something to enjoy about them. 
They don't follow the books in the movies. If you can ignore that fact and just take the movies as fiction they are great. I saw the first two in theaters with my husband we had both read the books. I admit he was super bummed but I enjoyed the movies. 

What about you? 


  1. I remember binge reading this series and then it was several months (and several more books) before I saw the first movie. So I can't remember how poorly it did in that sense. My poorly shot memory thought it did good, but I guess not so much! Lol! Still a good movie like you said! I still need to see the third one!

  2. I haven't read the series but I've always thought the movies look pretty cool. Will probably check them out at some point (both books and movies!) as they look like they'll be right up my kiddos street. :)

  3. I think like you said, it's important to just remember that they won't follow the book. As I said in someone else's Book Blogger Hop, no movie adaptation is going to do it's book counterpart justice...EVER! Even the Harry Potter series that I love, well there were obviously changes made to those to, to adapt it into a movie.

  4. I've read the first book in the series and watched two films. I can't remember how I felt about them, hah! So I guess both book (just one) and films are not memorable for me.

  5. Nice answer! I completely know what you mean about being able to enjoy an adaptation if you ignore the fact that it's actually an adaptation and just take it for a film instead. Sometimes it's a lot easier to just enjoy a film as a film, instead of trying to compare it to the book, because we're never really going to be completely happy with it.

    I haven't actually read The Maze Runner series, but I really want to. I've seen the movies and I've enjoyed them so far (especially Dylan O'Brien). I've heard a lot of hype around the books, so I want to check them out, but hopefully they don't end up making me change my feelings regarding the films themselves.

    Feel free to check out my own answer if you wish!
