Let’s Talk! (Week #21 – 3/22/13)

We’re up to week 21 of Let’s Talk! It’s sparked some very interesting and lively conversations and given us all something to think about. That’s always a good thing. Here’s what Smash and Kt have to tell us about the weekly meme.

Originally hosted by Melissa from i swim for oceans, Smash & Kt took her original inspiration, and made it their own, expanding it to more than just books. Let’s get personal (but respectfully so) and learn more about one another!  Each week, a different question will be posted along with a place to link up your posts and visit other people’s responses. This meme is definitely meant to bring out conversation and meet new people. So, Let’s Talk!

And here’s Today’s Question:

Are too many books being made into movies?

I’ve never really thought about it much – about the ‘too many’ aspect anyway. I love it when one of my favorite books comes to life on the screen. Then, like almost everyone else, I lament about how much unlike the book the movie is. When it’s done right though, it’s great.

In a sneaky sort of crazy way I hope that books being turned into books will help get people to actually read those books, especially the ones that I adore. (Harry Potter, City of Bones, Hunger Games, etc.) In a not so crazy way, some of those movies being released that are based on books have made me want to track them down. Some of them have actually pushed me to read the books that I’ve been putting off  (Beautiful Creatures, Perks of Being a Wallflower, etc.) because I HATE to see a movie before I read the book.

So what about you? Do you think that there are too many books making the move to Hollywood? Join this week’s discussion and Let’s Talk!
