#BookTags #BookAdaptationTag!

Welcome to this weeks post for Book Tags! This week we are doing the Book Adaptation TagI had a fun time with this one so I hope that you enjoy it as much as I did! Just to let you know all covers link to Amazon! 





1. What is the last book adaptation movie you saw? (I have NOT READ THIS!!) 


At the end of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald was captured in New York with the help of Newt Scamander. But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escapes custody and sets about gathering followers, most unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings.
In an effort to thwart Grindelwald’s plans, Albus Dumbledore enlists Newt, his former Hogwarts student, who agrees to help once again, unaware of the dangers that lie ahead. Lines are drawn as love and loyalty are tested, even among the truest friends and family, in an increasingly divided Wizarding World.
This second original screenplay from J.K. Rowling, illustrated with stunning line art from MinaLima, expands on earlier events that helped shaped the Wizarding World, with some surprising nods to the Harry Potter stories that will delight fans of both the books and films.


2. What book movie are you most excited for? (I am actually reading this one right now!  I can not wait for this movie and the book just came out) 

Soon to be a major motion picture starring Cole Sprouse and Haley Lu Richardson in March 2019!

In this moving story that’s perfect for fans of John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars, two teens fall in love with just one minor complication—they can’t get within a few feet of each other without risking their lives.

Can you love someone you can never touch?

Stella Grant likes to be in control—even though her totally out of control lungs have sent her in and out of the hospital most of her life. At this point, what Stella needs to control most is keeping herself away from anyone or anything that might pass along an infection and jeopardize the possibility of a lung transplant. Six feet apart. No exceptions.

The only thing Will Newman wants to be in control of is getting out of this hospital. He couldn’t care less about his treatments, or a fancy new clinical drug trial. Soon, he’ll turn eighteen and then he’ll be able to unplug all these machines and actually go see the world, not just its hospitals.

Will’s exactly what Stella needs to stay away from. If he so much as breathes on Stella she could lose her spot on the transplant list. Either one of them could die. The only way to stay alive is to stay apart. But suddenly six feet doesn’t feel like safety. It feels like punishment.

What if they could steal back just a little bit of the space their broken lungs have stolen from them? Would five feet apart really be so dangerous if it stops their hearts from breaking too?




3. Which upcoming book movie will you definitely NOT see? (Please don't hate me. But I didn't care for the book so I won't be watching the movie. Maybe when it comes to RedBox?)


Sixteen-year-old Starr Carter moves between two worlds: the poor neighborhood where she lives and the fancy suburban prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Khalil was unarmed.
Soon afterward, his death is a national headline. Some are calling him a thug, maybe even a drug dealer and a gangbanger. Protesters are taking to the streets in Khalil’s name. Some cops and the local drug lord try to intimidate Starr and her family. What everyone wants to know is: what really went down that night? And the only person alive who can answer that is Starr. 
But what Starr does—or does not—say could upend her community. It could also endanger her life.

And don't miss On the Come Up, Angie Thomas's powerful follow-up to The Hate U Give.



4. Which book movie would you NEVER watch again?
(This is one that I DNFed the book a few times but we did go watch the movie and well it was kind of worse than the book) 


Book one in the blockbuster Darkest Minds series-now with key art from the major motion picture that's hitting theaters August 2018!
When Ruby woke up on her tenth birthday, something about her had changed. Something alarming enough to make her parents lock her in the garage and call the police. Something that got her sent to Thurmond, a brutal government "rehabilitation camp." She might have survived the mysterious disease that killed most of America's children, but she and the others emerged with something far worse: frightening abilities they cannot control.
Now sixteen, Ruby is one of the dangerous ones.
But when the truth about Ruby's abilities-the truth she's hidden from everyone, even the camp authorities-comes out, Ruby barely escapes Thurmond with her life. On the run, she joins a group of kids who escaped their own camp: Zu, a young girl haunted by her past; Chubs, a standoffish brainiac; and Liam, their fearless leader, who is falling hard for Ruby. But no matter how much she aches for him, Ruby can't risk getting close. Not after what happened to her parents.

While they journey to find the one safe haven left for kids like them-East River-they must evade their determined pursuers, including an organization that will stop at nothing to use Ruby in their fight against the government. But as they get closer to grasping the things they've dreamed of, Ruby will be faced with a terrible choice, one that may mean giving up her only chance at a life worth living.


5. Is there a movie you saw that made you want to read the book, if you hadn’t yet? 
(Mortal Engines comes out in Decemeber and right after seeing the trailer I was like OK this HAS to be a book!! So I looked it and grabbed a copy from Walmart!) 

Welcome to the astounding world of Predator Cities!

London is hunting again. Emerging from its hiding place in the hills, the great Traction City is chasing a terrified little town across the wastelands. Soon, London will feed. 

In the attack, Tom Natsworthy is flung from the speeding city with a murderous scar-faced girl. They must run for their lives through the wreckage--and face a terrifying new weapon that threatens the future of the world.

Beloved storyteller Philip Reeve creates a brilliant new world in the Predator Cities series, called "phenomenal...violent and romantic, action-packed and contemplative, funny and frightening" by the Sunday Times.




6. Conversely, is there a movie that made you never want to read the book? 

For this one I would have to say no.  Nothing is really coming to mind at the moment.




7. Name an adaptation that has almost nothing to do with the book it’s supposedly based on.

(Man the Maze Runner may not have been closely related to the books but it was so much better!!)

Perfect for fans of Divergent and The Hunger Games, this special movie tie-in edition of the first book in the #1 New York Times bestselling Maze Runner series, The Maze Runner,  features an eight-page full-color insert with photos from the film and an exclusive fan sticker. The first three books, The Maze RunnerThe Scorch Trials, and The Death Cure are all now major motion pictures featuring the star of MTV’s Teen Wolf, Dylan O’Brien, as Thomas; Kaya Scodelario as Teresa; Aml Ameen as Alby; Will Poulter as Gally; and Thomas Brodie-Sangster as Newt! And look for James Dashner’s newest novels, The Eye of Minds and The Rule of Thoughts, the first two books in the Mortality Doctrine series.

Nice to meet ya, shank. Welcome to the Glade.

Outside the towering stone walls that surround the Glade is a limitless, ever-changing maze. It’s the only way out—and no one’s ever made it through alive.

Everything is going to change.

Then a girl arrives. The first girl ever. And the message she delivers is terrifying.

Remember. Survive. Run.

8. Have you ever left the theater during a movie adaptation because it was so bad?

(Sorry can't say that I have.)






9. Do you prefer to watch the movie first or read the book first?

Either is fine. I think a lot of times if the movie looks REALLY good!  I don't want to get spoiled before I watch it.  So i'll wait until I watch the movie first then read the book.  Then well maybe go back and watch the movie again to see whats different.

10. How do you feel about movie adaptations that age characters up? (ex. characters that are in middle-school, but in the movies they’re all 18)

I think that if it works then they should go for it!! I think it worked well for The Lighting Thief as well as Shadowhunters.  For the movies and TV it just worked better.  

11. Do you get angry when the actors don’t look like you thought the characters looked?

Not really I know that I got upset about the actor they chose for Jace in the City of Bones movie. I just didn't think he looked the right way. He was much better suited for being a Vampire in the Twilight Movies lol. 


12. Is there a movie you liked better than its book?
(I really enjoyed Beautiful Creatures the movie more than the book!)


 Lena Duchannes is unlike anyone the small Southern town of Gatlin has ever seen, and she's struggling to conceal her power, and a curse that has haunted her family for generations. But even within the overgrown gardens, murky swamps and crumbling graveyards of the forgotten South, a secret cannot stay hidden forever.

Ethan Wate, who has been counting the months until he can escape from Gatlin, is haunted by dreams of a beautiful girl he has never met. When Lena moves into the town's oldest and most infamous plantation, Ethan is inexplicably drawn to her and determined to uncover the connection between them.

In a town with no surprises, one secret could change everything.

13. Name a book that you would love to see as a movie.

Yes I know that this series has gotten not one but TWO chances of being turned into a movie and a tv show and both of them died a horrible death.  BUT!!! I want someone to pick it up and do it the RIGHT WAY!! Like hand in hand with the author and they need to stop changing half the stuff. Like in both the movie and the TV show they have Jace saying Clary from the demon in the start of the first book.  But in the book she does it herself!! Lets keep that!! 

All six books in the #1 New York Times bestselling Mortal Instruments series, now available in a collectible paperback boxed set.

Enter the secret world of the Shadowhunters with this handsomely packaged boxed set that includes City of BonesCity of AshesCity of GlassCity of Fallen AngelsCity of Lost Souls, and City of Heavenly Fire. The Mortal Instruments books have more than twenty-four million copies in print, and this complete collectible set of six paperback volumes is a perfect gift for newcomers to the series and for loyal fans alike.
