This 'fest comes from Madeleine Sara at Scribble and Edit to celebrate the 3rd anniversary of her blog and is a three day celebration, 2nd-4th September.
If you want to join in then it's not too late, and you can do one, two or all three days, it's entirely up to you! Just head over to Madeleine's blog to get signed up.
Today's focus is:
Are there any novels you have seen as films/TV adaptations in which the novel left you cold?
Is there a film that surprised you and prompted you to read the novel?
One film that prompted me to go out and read the books was The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring.
I tried so many times to read the books when I was in high school, but The Hobbit was the only one I managed to get through and enjoy. I don't know why I couldn't get to grips with them way back then, goodness knows I really wanted to but I just didn't have the time to get into them properly.
When The Fellowship came out I really loved it, of course, and that gave me the impetus to finally get on with reading the book. I managed to read all three of the books before The Two Towers came out, which I usually prefer to do, book before film.
For me, the enjoyment of the film enhanced the books so that I could finally enjoy them too.
Have you seen any films that have made you want to read the book?
