Book Blogger Hop [8]

Book Blogger Hop

This Week's Question: What book-to-movie adaption have you most liked? Which have you disliked?

My Answer:

I think my favorites are Holes and the first Harry Potter movie. I was actually shocked when I saw how true to the book both movies were!

My least favorites are Eragon and Prince Caspian. which is sad because those books are some of my top favorites. They completely butchered the book in Prince Caspian, it made me so mad! Eragon was infuriatingly different from the book too, and the cinematography was horrible. In fact, I read that the reason they never adapted the rest of the series is because Eragon was so unpopular. I don't know if it's true, but if it was it wouldn't surprise me.


  1. Let’s kick off Memorial Day Weekend with some scandal and controversy.

    I absolutely loved every minute of the Lord of the Rings films and felt they hit the mark when they brought Tolkien’s masterpiece to the big screen.
    (ducking as rotten tomatoes are thrown at me as the torches are lit and the pitchforks raised)

    Wait, wait. I can explain! Hop on over to my blog and hear me out –

  2. Oh, I hated the Eragon movie so much...

  3. A bunch of people have mentioned Eragon. I haven't read the book or seen the movie. Maybe I need to, just so I can see what everyone's talking about!

    Glad to have found you via the Hop.

  4. I feel like every time I go into a bookstore I see ERAGON but I've never read it. I'm going to have to give it a go, though. Definitely worth reading?

  5. Oh yes, kaye! Eragon is one of my top favorite books.

  6. Eragon seems like a popular dislike choice. I've never seen it.


I read and appreciate every comment, so thank you in advance!
