Book to Movie Challenge

Luckily this whole blog from email thing seems to be working ok, so I'll post a couple more things this way during the day. However because of the lack of formatting options in my email account I won't be able to post my Trainspotting review or my Top 10 Tuesday, but hopefully my blogger will let me edit them soon.

So! Like I said in the last post I was desiring a little structure and I happened across a post from Gabe on Gabrielreads about this challenge by Two Bibliomaniacs. This is my kind of challenge, combining my love of film and books, win win!  So between June 1st and December 31st I will be attempting the Oscar Buzz level of participation, which means I'll be reading 8 books and then watching the films that were adapted from them.

I'm going to try and get a list up by the end of this week of the books I intend to read and the films I'll watch but I'm eager for any recommendations from you if there are any books and films that you think are especially great. Two that I'm fairly sure I'll add to my list will be Stardust by Neil Gaiman (new read) and A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess(reread).


  1. Since I'm rereading A Clockwork Orange this month, I can't do it for this challenge but I'm looking forward to your eventual review of both the book and the movie.

    It's funny that you mention Stardust because I was thinking of doing that one as well. I love the movie, but I didn't like the novel the first time around and I want to give it another shot.

    Glad I could help you find some structure. :)

  2. I've seen Stardust mentioned quite a bit on blogs lately so I've been meaning to read it and this turned out to be the perfect opportunity!

  3. Glad to have you on board! Can't wait to hear what you think of Stardust!!!

  4. Yea, we're experiencing the same difficulties choosing our books/movies. I guess too many to choose from is a better problem to have than the reverse...

    We're determined to pick our first 2-3 by the end of this weekend!
