30 Day Reading Challenge Day 19: Favorite Story to Flicker on the Screen

30 day reading challenge

Hey Bookworms! I am scheduling posts now and I know this one should’ve gone up yesterday, but I have been having a lazy streak. I am also sleepy as writing this, so this post will be on the short side. I hope you still enjoy because I will be talking about 2 of my favorite subjects: Books and movies so let’s begin!

Day 19: Favorite Book to Film

Life of Pi by Yann Martel

Life of Pi

I read this book in 11th grade, so being forced to read wasn’t my favorite. Now looking back I want to try and read it for pleasure. I remember the imagery and symbolism was amazing and let’s face it I was just too young to appreciate it. The adaption was just as beautiful and covered the key points very well. This book and movie takes you on journey and love its hints of magical realism. It makes you think and wonder which version is true. The movie is one of my favorites and one I wish I owned! Here is the trailer for you to enjoy. So Bookworms tell me what your favorite adaption is! Have you read this books or watched this movie? Happy Reading and Watching!

30 Day Reading Challenge Days 15&16: It’s Like Choosing a Favorite Friend

30 day reading challenge

Hey bookworms! Sorry I’ve been gone for a few days, but I’ve been having technical issues and pain issues too. Basically me and my computer are falling apart at the same time… Me because of the monsoon season weather and my scars and knee like to act up when it’s about to rain. My computer is just old… But you probably want to hear about books right? I’ll get started on the happier subject. Which days 15&16 were the hardest decisions of my life! It felt like choosing between friends and let’s face it we all know that is wrong! This is a challenge after all which means I have to answer it… The struggle was real guys!

Day 15: Favorite Male Character

So many of these males were part of my developing as a teen and as a person in general. These characters have helped me see that not all problems are solved with harsh words or force. That some males even if rare can see a girl. Not for who she is physically, but on the inside. Some can stay true and loyal friends. Now who am I choosing. I thought long and hard before I finally picked the one who first stole my heart in my teen years:

Adrian Ivashkov from Vampire Academy and The Bloodline Series

FrostbiteBloodlines

Let’s face it he was my first book book boyfriend. I let him go when it came to the Bloodlines series according to my general rule with book boyfriends but that is a different story. In both of these stories Adrian has problems and he has serious flaws. He is/was someone I could hope to find in real life. Someone who given the support can conquer his support and all his vices. He is tall, artistic, sarcastic, a bit crazy, and has this lazy cockiness that makes it something worth getting past. He isn’t the best fighter but will use his abilities to helped his loved ones. Lets face it he is not sane all the time, but neither am I. Mead has a way of painting characters that all be it sexy are people you can find in real life unlike most YA male leads. For the longest time I knew these characters could not exist, but with Adrian I knew there was a chance to find someone like him. Okay and trust me I am revisiting the VA books over the summer to compare his growth in the two series. Plus I want to meet him again for the first time!

Day 16: Favorite Female Character

This was so hard because I am trying not to be repetitive and name the same characters over and over again. I think I have changed my mind at least 5 times, but I am just going to say the one that is popping into my head right at this very moment and go with it!

Bridget Vreeland from The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants Series

The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants

Honestly this series was one of the contemporary books I adored when I was younger. Waiting for the release of the 3rd and 4th after I read the first two. Wanting to know what happened to these girls. Hoping they had advice for me when I faced their challenges. Honestly I relate to each of these girls in a lot of ways. I see parts of myself in each of them, and maybe it’s what I’m facing now that makes me think of Bridget.

She is a lot of time the energy in the group. The sunshine and strength. The one who sees what she wants and goes for it full speed ahead, but then when facing something hard she closes it out and avoids it for as long as she can until she can’t. It hits her and drags her down. Her free spirit ambles in direction in denial because she has lost control. That is how I feel right now dragged down with no self control, but through her sisters and her goals she always finds herself once again. She is flawed and broken. Shiny on the surface, but someone that needs help underneath. I understand this and get how it’s hard to want to reach for help, but she does it and so have I. She will be my role model through this time. She made it through I can too.

Well that is all for now bookworms! Again sorry for being MIA but life happens I guess. I hope you can forgive me! Would you have been able to make these choices, and if so who would you have picked? Who were your favorite characters in the books I mentioned? Maybe you can help add more to my library TBR. I do adore talking about books! Let me know in the comments below. Happy reading!

Movie Monday: Adaptions I’ve Watched that I Still Need to Read: Part 2

mm (2)

Hey Bookworms this post might not get up on Monday, but I am starting Monday night so it counts! I needed to quite down my mind a bit, so I thought I’d do another one of my movie confession posts. This is a part 2 post of movie adaptions I have watched, but haven’t read yet either because I was too excited to see the movie or didn’t know it was a book! For Part 1 you can look if you want to see my how bad I am with the first 10! As for the links it will be the same as the last one the title will hold the goodreads link and below that will be the movie trailer. Hope you enjoy it! These are ones I can name off the top of my head.

1. The Secret Garden

This was a book always difficult when I was younger to finish because of it’s length. I am hoping that now that I am older I can fix that issue now that I have a better attention span

2. A Little Princess

The problem with this book it was a library book and school got in the way of reading when I was younger

3. Holes

This one was required reading when I was younger and every time I was required I rebelled. I do want to read this now though!

4. Charlotte’s Web

I remember being read part of this, but don’t think it was ever finished. So I count it as unread.

5. 101 Dalmatians

I didn’t know this was a movie till I was watching the movie one night! So definitely gonna buy it ASAP!

6. Kingsman: The Secret Service

I’m in love with this movie and want to read the comic as soon as I can!!!

7. Julie & Julia

This movie is inspirational especially the fact of how blogging helped her through her life. So I want to read this as soon as I can

8. Marley & Me

With this story the way the movie is narrated it makes me wonder if the articles have the same voice, so I need it as soon possible

9. Matilda

My favorite childhood movie, but until I got older I never knew it was a book, so I want it so bad!

10. Brideshead Revisited

This is one of my favorite movie period pieces, so I want to see how the film took from the words.

So that’s all for now bookworms! Started this post Monday, but finished on Tuesday. How are you when it comes to adaptions? How strict are you with watching films before reading. Sadly this list gets longer, but I do love most of the movies I watch. I love to live in the world of stories whether it’s a book, comic, movie, show, or game! Which of these that you’ve read or watched is your favorite? Which should I read first? Comment down below and let me know! Happy reading and watching!
