Books vs Movie Challenge 2009

Here at Royal Reviews we love reading books and then watching the movie!
In 2008 our excitement built to fever pitch when The Other Boleyn Girl was released and then again we counted down the days until Twilight began (some of us have seen it 4 times but we won't mention names). It is fun to see if your image of the characters match those on screen and to see how closely the story sticks to the book, some are wonderful and don't disappoint and then there are those that drive you crazy. So we decided to run a Books vs Movie Challenge.
The rules are simple:
In 2009 read a minimum of 6 books that have been made into movies and then watch the movie.
  • Write a review on the Book vs the Movie and be honest about whether or not you think the film-maker was successful in translating the book to film. Please keep in mind that it is impossible to convey everything. You must both read the book and watch the movie within 2009. All genres are acceptable and it doesn't matter when the movie was made.
  • Feel free to display one of the following challenge buttons on your blog (movies
    shown are Pride & Prejudice, Marley & Me and Twilight)
  • Please add to the comments of this post and/or the Goodreads group when you've done a review. Periodically throughout the year random prizes will be given out.
