I go to the movies A LOT, thanks to my movie buff husband. It's always surprising to him at how many times I utter "That's based on the book ______." or "I read that book last year!" during the previews. (Or if you're a Game of Thrones fan, I suppose it might be more like "Will he ever finish the books before the series catches up?" but that's a story for another blog post...)
I try my best to read the books before I see the movie, because that's just my preference. I like to compare and cheer when the movie and I share the same imagination about characters, etc. and complain when I think they get it totally wrong. For those of you who like to do the same, here is a solid list to check out from the gurl.com website: 15 Books You Need to Read Before They Become Movies in 2015.
Do you prefer reading the book first or watching the movie? Leave a comment and let us know.
Happy reading...and watching!
