Spring Into Summer Read-a-thon Updates and Mini-Challenges - Day 1

I'm going to just make this into one big post now.
I'll separate each update and mini-Challenge with a line. :) 

#1

Mini-Challenge: Tell about your favorite and least favorite movie adaptation of a book.
  • Favorite book-movie adaptation: Hmmmm, that's a tough one. I really enjoyed The Notebook and A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks, the movie versions were amazingly well done. :D I also just recently watched Flipped based off of the book by Wendelen Van Draaen adn I thought it was so well done. :)

  • Least favorite book-movie adaptation: I've had a fair few book to movies that I haven't really liked, or that I was 'meh' about, but I'm not sure about which one I liked the least. I absolutely hated the movie version of Inkheart though, that one was just nothing like I pictured the book at all, and they changed so many little details that I remember just being annoyed pretty much during the whole movie.
