Read the Book, See the Movie Challenge Sign Up.

Thursday, May 6, 2010

I need this like I need a kick in the head but I'm joining another challenge.

Here are the details of the Read the Book, See the Movie Challenge hosted over at Ready When You Are, C. B.

The Read the Book, See the Movie Challenge is based on a simple idea--read a book, see a movie based on the book, include both in your review. Whether yours is a book blog or a movie blog, this could be a way to add some spice to your posts, expand your outlook, have some fun. Mostly, have some fun.

You don't have to write full reviews both the movie and the book. You can write a review of one then add a brief paragraph or just a sentence or two about the other at the end.

Select a challenge level:
  • Matinee: one book/movie
  • Double Feature: two books/movies
  • Saturday Movie Marathon: four books/movies
  • Film Festival: eight books/movies
  • Festival Jury Member: ten books/movies
The challenge will begin on New Year's Day 2010 and will last all year.

I am going to go for the Film Festival level of a challenge mainly because I already know there are at least four books I have read that I haven't seen the movie to go along with it and I don't see it as much of a challenge if I don't have to read any books so the Film Festival level forces me to go out and read some books too. I don't think this one will be too hard to finish by the end of the year, we'll see.
I'm not sure exactly all the titles I will read/watch but I know I will do
How To Train Your Dragon by Cressida Cowell (need to read)
Lovely Bones by Alice Seabold (need to watch)
The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger (need to watch)
Eragon by Christopher Paolini (need to watch)
The Neverending Story by Ralph Manheim (need to read)
My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult (need to watch)

the other's I will pick up as I go along.
