[BOOKTOFILMFRIDAY] Introduction

Starting next week, every Friday at fireflyreads is officially Book to Film Friday! I’ll be posting about films that are based on counterpart novels, comparing the two stories and hopefully inspiring some discussion in the comments.

I’ve noticed recently that a huge number of fantasy, scifi and dystopian novels are being snapped up and made into films; every movie is touted as ‘The New Hunger Games’ and I wanted to explore how these films compare to their origins. But it’s not only fantasy that’s getting the Hollywood treatment, since the success of The Fault in Our Stars YA book covers are awash with ‘Soon to be a major motion picture!’ stickers (which are a nightmare to peel off, may I add).

Book to film developments are usually met with either excitement or horror from fans and I want to get in on the discussion! I’m currently reading The Maze Runner and plan to finish it before I see the film; keep an eye out for a post in the coming weeks!

Hope you like the idea, let me know what you think in the comments below!
