The biggest trend I've noticed lately, is that I sure like those "book to big screen" titles. It's interesting to see how the movie differs from your own interpretation. Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, One Day, The Silver Lining's Playbook, Memoirs of a Geisha, etc. All wonderful books, with almost just as amazing movies. I love watching the movie directors bring the books to life with every detail and line.
I recently finished Memoirs of a Geisha this month and couldn't put it down! Luckily for me, the full movie was available on Youtube. Don't you love when that happens? Keeping in line with my new years resolution, I've decided to start a new monthly series in which I read a book before it hits the big screen. That's just one book per month and I can treat myself with a trip to the movies afterwards!
I know Memoirs of a Geisha came out years ago, but it still falls into the book to movie category. It'll let it slide for the month of January, but next month I plan on reading "The Fault in Our Stars." The movie doesn't come out until June, but I read a little snippet yesterday and I'm already hooked! John Green is a fantastic author.
Let me know what you think of the new series or if you know of any books I should read next! I've heard good things about Divergent, but I'm not sure it's my cup of tea. Anyone read it lately? This series isn't meant to become a book club, but feel free to read with me if you're interested!
