My Favorite Book to Movie Adaptions

Hello everybody! Welcome (or welcome back) to my blog, Books and Hooks! I hope you are having a good Monday!

Today, I’ll be listing and talking about my favorite book-to-movie adaptions! Now, there are a lot of book-to-movie adaptions that are just horrible, or at least not that good. If you ask anyone I know, they’ll tell you that I’m that annoying person who points out everything in the movie that isn’t supposed to be there, or that’s different in the books. 😅 Even so, there are a few movies that have really stood out to me, and that’s what I’ll be covering in this post!

The Book Thief

There were a few things that were cut out of the movies, and some things they did differently, but I understand that you cannot include everything in the movie. I think that they portrayed the book really well, and I really recommend reading or watching this historical fiction.

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before

I loved the books, and I think that they made the movies very good as well! I don’t know if I’d say I like the films more than the books, but I think I like them just as much! There are a lot of good changes they made to the movie. For example, I think I like Peter better in the movies because I feel like he’s less dramatic and he is more caring.

The Hunger Games

Nothing can compare to the books, however, I think that they did a good job with the movies. They didn’t differ from the books a whole lot, and there are a few added parts in the movies that make them really good and worth watching.

The Lord of the Rings

Okay, if you’ve followed for a while you probably know that I’ve been trying to get through the Lord of the Rings book series for a while. It’s not that I don’t like the series. I think that it’s great and Tolkien was an amazing writer. But I just have a hard time getting through the books for some reason. I do plan to finish the series. I’m on the last book. I think that the movies are well made, and they really portray the books well, I think.

The Giver

When I was younger, my sister really liked this movie, and she’d watch it a lot. However, I just thought it was boring. A few years ago, though, I started getting more into it and understanding more about the themes and messages of the movie. Last year, I read the books, which were really good. I’d definitely recommend reading them. The movie was made really well, I think. It’s kind of weird having watched the movie first, then read the book, though. Also, I think that some of the other books in the series would make good movies.

That’s it! Thanks to Lydia who gave me this idea! Definitely go check out her blog, which she recently started! She shares some amazing content!

Do you like watching the movie adaptions of books? What’s your favorite on this list? Are there any more you’d add? Are there any adaptions that have really disappointed you? I’d love to chat in the comments!

Also, can anyone recommend a good Pride and Prejudice movie? I know that they made a few, but I don’t know which one is the best. Please recommend one to me in the comments!

Recipes I Use A Lot

Hello guys! I hope you are having a good day!

Today, I’m sharing a few recipes I use a lot. I usually post about books or crochet, but baking and cooking is another one of my hobbies and interests! So, in this post, I’ll be linking a few recipes I love and use a lot!

Spicy Nacho Cheese Sauce from Sally’s Baking Recipes

I love making this when my family is having nachos, soft pretzels, or veggies because this is the perfect dip! I don’t usually add all of the cayenne pepper, because I have little siblings who don’t really like spicy things. A couple times, we also made some of this cheese sauce, and added it to some macaroni to make mac and cheese! This works really well! Once, we also made some of this (we added some extra milk), and then we added some cooked potato chunks to make a cheesy potato soup and it turned out really good!

White Bread from The Food Nanny

This recipe is one of the easiest I have found to make simple white bread! You only need to knead it for a little while, but you can also use a mixer for this. It rises twice, and it’s overall just really simple and yummy! There’s a way that you can make cinnamon rolls out of the bread dough, too, which I’ll have to try soon! 😀

White Chip Chocolate Cookies from Nestle

This is one that I’ve only made twice, but they are sooo good! I love them better than regular chocolate chip cookies! 🍪 I’m definitely going to keep using this recipe!

Quick and Easy Pizza Crust from All Recipes

This is one me and my family have been using for a while. It’s a very, very, very simple pizza crust recipe! It only needs to rise once, for five minutes. It’s super simple and easy to make, and it’s pretty quick. We usually use a cookie sheet to make a rectangle pizza and double the recipe, because we have a bigger family.
