      I’m constantly amazed by how many books are based on movies! I think I’m going to have to narrow my options down some too 🙂

  1. Julie S.

    Ooh this is a cool challenge. There are definitely quite a few bookish movies coming out this year so it is a timely challenge. Take care 🙂

  2. Wendy @ Wensend

    I’ve just finished reading Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn and I’ve read Divergent last year, but that’s it for the books-to-movies. I still want to read The Book Thief (which is actually a 2013 movie, but I haven’t seen it yet) and I want to read The Winter’s Tale and The Fault in Our Stars

      I sounds like you’ve got a great head start on the book to movie adaptations coming out this year 🙂 I loved The Book Thief, so hopefully you’ll enjoy it as much as I did.

  3. Charlotte @ Thoughts and Pens

    I wish you all the best with this endeavour, Katie. I will be looking forward to reading movie reviews and discover new film adaptations that I haven’t heard of. 😀

    Belated Happy New Year!

  4. Rebecca @ Love at First Book

    I think this is so fun! I’m not sure I will enter the challenge officially, but deep within my heart, I’m entered! I’ll try to read something and then go see it, like I did with Catching Fire (a reread before it came out) and The Book Thief (even though I haven’t seen the movie yet!).

    Thanks for linking up to the Spread the Love Linky Party!!! I pinned this, too! 😀

      Thanks Rebecca 🙂 I know challenges aren’t the best for everyone since they can make reading feel like a chore instead of something you do for fun, but even if you just unofficially do some book to movie adaptation reviews, I’ll be interested to hear what you think.
