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.
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.

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!
