I’m typically determined to always read the book before I watch the movie, but sometimes that doesn’t happen. Here are just a few that I watched first, but would really like to revisit in book form in order to do a reverse comparison.
I’ve had numerous Bret Easton Ellis books on my TBR but this is the one I’ve wanted to try the most. I fear that considering that I now know the ending it won’t make quite an impact but I’m willing to give it a shot.
I have adored all of the Michael Crichton books I have read, but Jurassic Park the movie straight up terrified me as a child. Someday I’ll conquer my fears and pick this one up.
I don’t watch a whole lot of comedies to be honest. And I really don’t understand why I love this movie so much, but it makes me bust a gut every time I watch it. Hoping that the book makes me laugh just as hard.
The movie was incredibly heartbreaking making me hesitant to pick up the book. I’ve heard incredible things about John Irving though, so, someday.
The movies are incredible and the books take some effort, but I’ve heard it’s well worth it. I attempted to read these books when I was a teen and stalled out somewhere in the middle of The Two Towers. I feel I’m finally ready to give it another go soon.
I found the movie (the one with Daniel Craig) to be decent enough, but watching it made me think the books would be vastly better. Someday I’ll dive into this trilogy. They seem like total me books.
Another heartbreaking watch. I can only imagine what Stephen King did with it for the book. This way of thinking would also apply to The Shawshank Redemption.
Another one that completely terrified me as a child. Oh wait, that seems to be Michael Crichton’s thing apparently. I’ve been told the book is even better the movie, but isn’t that how it typically always is? 🙂
I was still going through my Leonardo DiCaprio phase when this came out. Don’t lie, we all had a Leonardo DiCaprio phase. Just found out recently this was based on a book, so on the TBR it goes.
Red Dragon [Book|Movie]
I have yet to see Silence of the Lambs but I somehow managed to see this. I’m eager to read this book series as well.. I can only imagine how creepy those will be.
Have you seen or read any of these? Are you like me and prefer reading the book first?
Thank you for stopping by!
