“I can’t watch the movie until I’ve read the book.”
If I’ve said this once, I’ve said it a
thousand trillion times. I feel like this unspoken rule of reading the book before watching the movie has been ingrained in me since the day I first cracked open a book spine…and honestly, do I even agree with it?? Or have I just been brainwashed to accept it as the norm??
Even though this is an age-old statement (well, not age-old, because movies are fairly recent in the grand scheme of things) and may seem like a trivial discussion, I’ve been feeling conflicted about this for a while now and there’s no time better than the present to talk about it.
In this post, I’m going to be talking about the pros and cons of watching the movie before reading the book and then sharing some of my favorite book-to-movie adaptations!
Without further ado, let’s get into the post. 😉
