Book vs. Movie: Love, Simon

The hype is real for Love, Simon the movie based off of Becky Albertalli’s novel, Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda, and I am so glad that I read the book and saw the movie this past week—both of which are fantastic! Becky Albertalli describes Love, Simon as the…

Book vs. Movie: Everything, Everything

I was particularly excited for Everything, Everything to release because this was the first movie adapted from a book that I was able to read and review in advanced (that review can be read here)! One of my favorite aspects of the book was how it…

Book vs. Movie: Nerve

I read Nerve a couple weeks ago in preparation for the movie, which I just saw today. At first, I was not going to see Nerve as the trailer did not really appeal to me. However, the trailer grew on me as I kept seeing it…

Book vs. Movie: Allegiant

The latest installment in the Divergent movie series releases last week on March 18th. Again, like I said in my Insurgent book vs. movie comparison, I really do not remember too much of the story other than the major ending plus some other basic information like how Tris’s mother…

Book vs Movie: Paper Towns

I liked reading Paper Towns. It wasn’t my favorite, but it was definitely an okay read. The beginning and end were very entertaining. I really liked the hijinks that Q and Margo get up to and the road trip the gang takes to find her. It was just…

Book vs. Movie: Me and Earl and the Dying Girl

I read the book and saw the movie back in June, and I think both are great. The book is hilarious; I’m not even exaggerating when I say I was laughing out loud for most of it. It’s a very entertaining read, and I was excited…

Book vs. Movie: Insurgent

I saw Insurgent last night, and it was really great. To be honest, going into the movie, I couldn’t remember too much of the actual book since I had read it over a year ago. I was a little aphrenrsive based on the trailers…

Book vs. Movie: The DUFF

First thing first, the book and movie are way different from each other. Both are good, but definitely different. I read Kody Keplinger’s book back in June when it was first announced that a movie would be filmed (my aunt is one of the…
