Armchair BEA: A GIVEAWAY and Books to Movies Adaptations!

Books to Movies Adaptations

     I'm a HUGE fan of movies or tv shows that are based on the books I've read. Same goes for books that are like the tv shows I love. But even though I love them, there are some movies out there that just didn't work for me.Which depresses me because they were mainly movies I was really hoping to love. So, here's a list of both the best and the worst book to movie adaptations to me. 


The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #1)Image result for percy jackson movie

This one was NOTHING like the book. It left out so many things that I was so looking forward to seeing happen. It did nothing but piss me off smh

BeastlyImage result for beastly movie

I really liked the book. Which really suprised me. I was thinking the movie would be just as good, and was disappointed. I tried watching it two times and fell asleep both times. I never did see tthe ending of that movie smh

Really any of the HP movies could've made this list in my honest opinion... Except HP and the Order of the Phoenix. But I didn't even like the book so that didn't really count anyways lol

If I Stay (If I Stay, #1)Image result for if i stay movie

Every last thing I waned to see from this book was in the movie. So much so I found myself crying at mainly the same times as the book. Both of them were wonderful!


  1. I've participated in ABEA - it's a cool event for us poor souls who can't go! I love the Percy Jackson books - and the movies weren't too bad! :D

    Thank you!

    Alyssa @ The Eater of Books!

  2. This is my fourth year for ABEA. I love the Instagram challenge, it's fun!

  3. I think this is my 3rd or 4th ABEA. I've been in the prize team for two years running. Thanks for the giveaway.

  4. Thanks for the giveaway! I have never participated in BEA, but one day I would love to go and get new releases like Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. :)

  5. It was nice getting to know you through ABEA and look forward to your posts in the future. I have participated in ABEA before, and it gets better and better as I learn to navigate it and Twitter chats become easier.
    Thank you for the giveaway.

  6. One day, I wish I can go to BEA. So many ARCs I'd love, I don't know which one I'd get first! :) And I totally agree with how the Percy Jackson movies were so different from the books!

  7. I've never participated in ABEA but I love reading all the posts!
    Would have loved to get my hands on Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo.

  8. I haven't participated in BEA or ABEA but I would have loved to. I would have wanted a copy of Frozen Tides by Morgan Rhodes

  9. I believe I did participate last year, but didn't this year(I just totally forgot, strangely enough!). I really enjoyed interacting last year. It made me feel better about not being able to go to BEA :)
