Musing Mondays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. Each week we will get a fun reading related question to answer. This week Musing asks:
Have you ever read a book after watching the movie/television version only to find that you don’t like the book as much as the adaptation?
Yes, actually, but very rarely does this ever happen. I can’t even think of enough examples to fill one hand. One of the biggest ones I can think of is Beastly by Alex Flinn. I really liked the movie a lot and I had high hopes for the book, but I turned out being disappointed by it because I felt like I was almost reading Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. For me, the movie was more original than the book; there were just too many similarities to Disney’s version in the book to me!
