phatsallylee It was good. I didn't read the book before watching but ed Norton is awesome! 3w
JackOBotts I read a profile on Ed Norton in an airplane mag...he worked on this adaptation for a loooooong time. Bought the rights shortly after its release (back when he was filming Fight Club). Looking forward to experiencing both book & film, eventually! 📚 (edited) 3w
Anna40 Never heard of the book! I think Edward Norton is fantastic. Very smart, great actor. Did he direct the movie? 3w

I went to see Doctor Sleep with my brother yesturday & we both loved it! It was such well done movie for an incredible book. The acting bringing the characters to life & the effects especially the recreation of The Overlook Hotel are all brilliantly executed👏👏👏 I loved the book & the movie! #booktoscreen

Bookish.SAM I just finished the book and then watched the movie tonight! Such an interesting mix to appease readers of the Doctor Sleep book and watchers of The Shining movie. (edited) 4w

Hope you all got to catch the pilot episode tonight! I thought it was fabulous! I am now eagerly awaiting the next episode! I was also pleasantly surprised by the slightly creepy factor 😏 If you have watched it yet make sure that you do! Let me know what you think!

GingerAntics I‘m going to have to wait until the whole thing is released, so I can binge watch it during the preview period. 1mo
Lidia I did watched it tonight! I‘m a big fan of the books and hope they do them justice. The first chapter was good. I really liked James McCavoy as Lord Asriel. 1mo
emmaturi I really enjoyed it! Good choices in actors for each character! 1mo

Laughterhp Should I wait until I‘ve read all the books to watch it? I‘ve only just recently read the 1st book and don‘t want to spoil things for me! 1mo
Caroline2 I really enjoyed. I just wish the BBC would put the whole series on iplayer so I could binge the lot!! 😆 1mo
LibrarianRyan I watched 1/2 and fell asleep. I loved what i saw so far. I am going to finish it later tonight. 1mo
SassyBookworm @GingerAntics I definitely understand that I want to see e next episode sooo bad!!! 1mo
SassyBookworm @Lidia yes I thought he played a fabulous Lord Asriel! I need to read the other books since I‘ll I‘ve read was The Golden Compass as a kid so I think a reread is definitely in order! 1mo
SassyBookworm @emmaturi I agree the actors are fabulous! And I loved the cute little guy who plus Roger! 1mo
SassyBookworm @Laughterhp I have only read the first book and it was just a small ways in so I think you‘ll be fine, I plan on rereading book 1 and actually reading the others in the series 1mo
SassyBookworm @Caroline2 Amen to that! I love being able to binge watch stuff bc the anticipation til the next episode is killing me! 1mo
SassyBookworm @LibrarianRyan my oldest wants to watch it so I‘ll get to rewatch it with her! I‘m so excited! 1mo
LibrarianRyan @SassyBookworm Yeah. I love this book. I wonder if they will do a book a season? Even though from the first 30 minutes I saw things that were not in the original book that might be in the Book of dust. But I have not read that yet so I don't quite know. 1mo
GingerAntics It looks really good...and it‘s not like I don‘t know what happens. lol 1mo
SassyBookworm @LibrarianRyan I need to do a reread it‘s been soooo long ago when I read it. A book a season would be good but that means only 3 seasons 😔 1mo
LibrarianRyan @SassyBookworm not if they include the book of dust series. And they could do what GoT did and go past the books. Not that that was the worlds best idea. 1mo
SassyBookworm @LibrarianRyan ohhh I had no clue there was an extra book! I really need to get more in the know 🤦🏼‍♀️ 1mo
LibrarianRyan @SassyBookworm Yes there is a new spin off series. The book of dust starts before Golden Compass, but is mostly about life after the original series (I think I have not read it yet, and the newest book is the Secret Commonwealth. 1mo

Bookish.SAM @candc320 @Tera0707 @Branwen ... I‘m sooo looking forward to watching the sequel... in theater... with popcorn and beer and people! This, watching the first one by myself, right before going to bed, was a goddamn terrible idea!! 😱🤡😬 3mo
Tera0707 @Bookish.SAM my husband went on a business trip the day after we watched It Chapter 2, and that night in bed, I turned off my lamp and... well, I had to turn on the TV because I was actually scared! Kept picturing something standing in the corner. (This usually doesn‘t happen to me after watching scary movies but I was actually creeped out!) 3mo
Bookish.SAM Oh dear @Tera0707 ... this does not bode well for my return home from the movie. AND... I just happen to be reading King‘s ‘Desperation‘ at the moment. Might need to find an alternative for before bed that night! 3mo

I feel like I‘ve only seen bits and pieces of ‘Stand By Me‘ ages ago but listening to this #audiobook really made me want to go back and watch it all. The book offered a lot of nuance to the boys‘ characters that I never quite grasped from what I saw of the movie.

If you want a feel good, make you cry, happy-sad book, this is the one. Fantastic. I had to read it before I see the movie, and I wasn't disappointed. Enzo tells Denny's story in a heartwrenching way, based on what he is able to learn from one sided phone conversations, people speaking secrets in his presence, and watching television. My heart hurt for Denny non-stop.

I find myself looking at my dog, Duke (pictured), wondering...

#booktoscreen

huntersmom1977 I remember reading this book when it first came out. I cried on a public bus for the first time ever. Duke is so handsome! So lucky 🍀 3mo
Wildly_Bookish Thanks! We love him! ❤🐶 3mo

I DNF'd The Guest Book by Sarah Blake. It's the first time I didn't force myself to continue. But as the members of #MBC say, life is too short to read books you're not enjoying. The kicker is, if I could get through it, I'm sure I would love it.

I picked up my next library loan to start. The Art Of Racing In The Rain by Garth Stein. Hopefully it lives up to the hype.

I finished two of the three books I wanted to finish this weekend. I won‘t get the other one done because Mom ordered this glorious box set. I loved this show when it first aired and I love the book. #bingewatching #allthehomicide #booktoscreen #baltimore

I read the book last year and found it okay, but I started the show and I‘m absolutely hooked !! 😱

Is anyone else watching this? What‘s your thoughts? #BookToScreen #Binge #WeekendPlans

Lovesbooks87 Love this show. Scares the crap out of me most of the time but I can't get enough of it! 6mo
Curiouser_and_curiouser The book gave lots of ideas but left lots open to imagination. This series has brought all that to life and more. I'm loving it too, I've almost completed the first season. I watched the first 7 eps in one evening! I'm also reading Brave New World again, as I am on this genre's trail atm. Good luck!! 6mo
KirstieE @Lovesbooks87 me too!! @Curiouser_and_curiouser I‘m legit watching like 5-6 episodes a day at this point, I can‘t stop 😫😫 I think they‘re doing a good job exploring the story line ! 6mo
GrilledCheeseSamurai Love the show! Haven't watched any of the new season yet - I'm letting it go for a bit so I can binge. 👍 6mo
KirstieE @GrilledCheeseSamurai I‘m up to S3 ep 4, and we‘re only really moving (plot wise) now so I think binging is a good idea ! 6mo
