A-Z Blogging Challenge: M Day

Today is M day! I'm writing about movies -- as in books that are made into movies.

My favorite books of all time are the Harry Potter series. And I liked the movies quite a bit, although the more they deviated from the book, the less I liked them. BUT it was worth it to see the world J.K. Rowling had created come alive, and I own almost all of them.

I also read the Twilight books. I didn't love them, but I didn't hate them. Until I watched the movies. The actors totally ruined the books for me and now I can't even read a paragraph of any of the books without cringing. Which is uber sad.

SO. My second favorite books of all time (I have lists of everything) are the Mortal Instrument Series by Cassandra Clare. They're making them into movies now, and I thought I would be so excited, but turns out I'm just mega-nervous. What if the movies ruin the books for me? I'm not thrilled with some of the casting choices, and I'm really struggling with the decision to see them or not (I have a lot of free time on my hands to stress about these things). What do you think? Stick with the books or venture into the movies?

  1. We have all the Harry Potter books and movies. Last year when we were in the UK we even visited many of the filming locations.

  2. I liked the first three books of the Mortal Instruments. I loved that she was going to do Simon's story but then we were back with the same old same old with Jace and Clary even to bringing back old, dead villains. Ugh

    1. YES! Exactly! I feel the same way. She really should have let it end at three.
