Day 29: “A book everyone hated but you liked”

It’s kind of difficult, but I suppose I could pick the “Twilight” books because the literary world seems to think the books are awful, but they were still bestsellers. I was given the series by my friends for Christmas one year and I actually really enjoyed them! I have since read countless reviews by people who point out the flaws in the books, and if I let my critical inner English student review them, I too see the flaws in the books. I still like the books though! I don’t care if you judge me!

Day 14: “Book turned movie and completely desecrated”

In all fairness, I’m never keen when they bring film adaptations of books out, especially books I love. I usually only see them if I’m really curious (Harry Potter) or I just don’t bother (The Hunger Games). I like the images I imagine inside my head, and films ruin that. There’s a few films I could mention, but most of them have grown on me!

Even though the books are fairly naff and not considered “proper literature”, I still quite liked the Twilight books! And I was reluctant to watch the films at first but my friend made me watch the first one and I wasn’t keen on it but now I’m afraid I own all the films on DVD. My biggest gripe is with “Breaking Dawn Part 2” because they added a bunch of scenes which didn’t happen in the book, where Bella and co end up having a really brutal fight with the “bad” vamps and loads of “good” vamps end up dying. I know the book ends fairly peacefully and I guess the film needed a big finish, but it kind of ruined the book! And the CGI baby is as creepy as Chuckie!
