I am going to participating in the 2013 Book to Movie Challenge hosted by Doing Dewey.
Yes, another 2013 Challenge. I think I’ll take on one more and I’ll be done for the yearly challenges. I think three 2013 challenges will be enough alongside my other ongoing challenges such as Classics Club, Pulitzer, Bookers, etc.
This challenge is a breeze because I already do this naturally! I’m big on adaptations. Also, I’m a bit behind on the movies portion (still need to watch Little Women) and this will prompt me to watch movies and tv mini series much faster after I read the books
For the sake of this challenge, I am counting TV mini-series as movies as well. Often times, I find they are the best forms of adaptations and even longer so even more of a challenge and fun for me to review
The levels of this challenge as follows:
Movie Fan – read 3 books and watch their movies
Movie Devotee – read 6 books and watch their movies
Movie Lover – read 9 books and watch their movies
Movie Aficionado – read 12 books and watch their movies
I am going to aim for Movie Fan or Movie Devotee. I think the latter is more yearly average now.
I will put here the list of all the books to movie challenge entries:
- Cloud Atlas – Book and Movie review
- Game of Thrones – Book and Season 1 Review
- Brief Encounter
- War Horse – Book and Movie Review
- Clash of Kings by George R. R. Martin and Season Two
- On the Road by Jack Kerouac and movie review
If you’re so inclined, join me in this challenge!
