Hi all and welcome to the first Book to Movie Challenge Check-In! I hope you’re all having a great time reading and watching so far this year. As always, my co-host Sergio of Tipping My Fedora is rocking this challenge, with 15 book to movie adaptations reviewed already! Since I love Agatha Christie, one of his reviews which I enjoyed the most was Marple: Endless Night. This first review not from the two of us hosting the challenge was a review of Gone Girl from Wendy at Wensend. Similarly, the latest non-host review was All Quiet on the Western Front from Bettina at Impressions Notebook. Personally, I’ve made it through two book/movie pairs: Darkly Dreaming Dexter and Monuments Men. I’ve also read Sharp Objects for my book club, but it was so dark, I might be too nervous to watch the movie! Below is the link-up for continuing to add your reviews in 2014. Thanks so much for joining in on this fun challenge! Continue reading
Hi all! I can’t believe it’s October already and we’re three-quarters of the way through the Book to Movie Challenge! I’m finally starting to get caught up, having read eight books and watched six movies (review of The Count of Monte Cristo movie to come). So far, I think my favorite movie was The King’s Speech and my favorite book was Sense and Sensibility. And now on to how everyone else is doing!
Hi all! We are officially at the halfway point in the Book to Movie challenge! Well, halfway through the year anyway. Personally, I’m a quarter of the way through my challenge, having read and reviewed Starship Troopers, Under the Tuscan Sun, and Jane Eyre. I haven’t loved any of them as much as some adaptations I saw last year, but hopefully things will pick up with my next book-to-movie read (I’m thinking The King’s Speech). Now, on to how everyone else is doing! Continue reading
Hello all! This marks the three month point on our Book to Movie Challenge so I’m going to let you all know a little bit about how I and your other fellow readers are doing. Our first review linked up was A Christmas Carol by Darlene’s Book Nook and the latest review added was The Case of the Late Pig from Sergio at Tipping My Fedora. Counting me, 10 of us only have one review done. Both Bettina at A Corner of the Library and Sergio at Tipping My Fedora have 5 – the most anyone has done! My only review so far has been Starship Troopers (Book and Movie reviews both done). I have, however, read some other books intending to watch the movie and then had the movie vanish off Netflix, so hopefully I’ll get more done the next three months. I hope everyone is having fun and would love to hear how things are going

Alright folks! Today we have another exciting new first for Doing Dewey! I will be hosting my first ever reading challenge, the 2013 Book to Movie Challenge. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to review books and the movies which they’ve been made into. It’s a tough job, but someone has to let us book lovers know which movies are going to fulfill our dreams of watching our favorite books come to life and which movies are going to ruthlessly shatter those dreams!
