The Thing with Book to Movie Adaptations

29 August 2021

Imagine this. You read a great book and it is now one of your favourites. Once you’re done with it, you looked it up. You find that there’s a movie(or TV show, just assume I said TV show even if I don’t say it explicitly here on out) based on it and excitedly you clear your schedule and decide to watch it. Things can only go two ways from here.

Hi, I am Arushi, a young adult who is trying to become the best kind of adult, one day at a time. Over on my blog you'll find posts about my myriad interests: books, movies, TV Shows, travel and even mythology! I am also often grappling with the highs and lows of adulthood and the idea of “growing up”. (And you’re welcome to join me on my (mis)adventures!)

Thanks Angel! For me it really can go either way; sometimes the movie is so fantastically adapted, it cant possibly get better than that. Other times, books are obviously far superior. (Like in Harry Potter,which I love a lot but the movies miss out on SO much of the book experience!)

This is such an interesting post! I know you said Harry Potter is the best example of book to movie but what version do you prefer?😊
