Cinfhen Never seen the films or read the books. Not sure if I even want to?!?! 2mo
TrishB @Cinfhen you won‘t like the books! The films are brain candy, I enjoyed them as ok, they‘re not winning Oscars. 1mo
Cinfhen I know lots of adults went gaga for the Vampires 🧛‍♂️ but I‘ve always thought this would be too YA for me @TrishB I‘m happy to be in the #PassCamp 1mo
TrishB @Cinfhen I read/watched with C as she was mad on it all! I was entertained by the films but the books were not for me! (Or you!) 1mo
CrowCAH Still one of the movies that when I watched it again I had the same first feeling! 1mo

Am I the only one NOT enjoying the HBO adaptation of this? While reading the books, I found the characters to be intense - not necessarily sullen, unhappy, and robotic. #booksintomovies 📚 into 🎥

Jinjer I haven‘t read the books yet, but...wow...The little girls are a MILLION times better actors than the older girls. Episode 3 was boring and...weird. 12mo

Well, I have 6 more books to read and then #litsyatoz2018 is, shall we say, in the books? 📚For “K” I am reading Ira Levin‘s first book, A KISS Before Dying, which was made into a movie in the 50s and the remade in the 90s. #booksintofilm #booksintomovies

The Birds is my favorite Hitchcock movie and I've always wanted to read the book. It's on sale right now for $2.99! 🐦🦅🐦🦅🐦

IamIamIam I never knew it was a story!!!! Hitch was quite a fan of duMaurier, huh???? Lol, enjoy and thanks for the info!! 2y
JenlovesJT47 @IamIamIam lol yep! I love Rebecca (the movie) and still have never read it, shame on me! Have you ever read Marnie? It's not written by du Maurier but if you like Hitch's movie (one of my faves!) it is definitely worth reading. It is set in the U.K. instead of the states so it completely changes the storyline. 2y
IamIamIam HAHA, no I didn't know Marnie was a book either! D'oh! Lol, I'll definitely put it on my radar now, though!!! 😁 2y

JenlovesJT47 @IamIamIam while you're at it I would recommend reading Psycho if you haven't already! Most if not all of Hitch's movies are based on books. He actually bought up all of the copies of Psycho during filming of the movie so the ending wouldn't be spoiled. 😅 2y
IamIamIam Omigosh, I believe it! I think we have Psycho but I just haven't read it. I also got this ages ago as a gift & haven't done any more than skim it. Guess I'll have to dig it out again! 2y
JenlovesJT47 @IamIamIam ooh this looks good, I added it to my TBR! 2y
IamIamIam We should do a buddy read. Lol, I'm sure it's got tons of info! 2y
JenlovesJT47 @IamIamIam I would definitely be down for that! Have you ever read the Truffaut book? I saw a documentary about it and it looks amazing, I bought it with my Christmas money but haven't gotten around to it yet. 2y
IamIamIam NO!!!! My dad absolutely LOVES Truffaut so thanks for the father's day gift idea!!!! 😂 I'll have to get 2 copies!!! 2y
JenlovesJT47 @IamIamIam you're welcome! 😅 on the documentary I saw, it was hours of Truffaut interviewing Hitch, so it was very interesting! Both geniuses of their craft in their own rights imo. Can't wait to read it! 2y
Carolyn11215 I had no idea she had written The Birds. Movie scared me so much as a kid I refused to watch any other Hitchcock until I was in my late 20s/early 30s! 2y
JenlovesJT47 @Carolyn11215 The Birds is one of my favorite movies but I didn't start watching Hitchcock movies until I was in my late teens so it didn't scare me too much. But my mom said the same thing, it scared her to death and she refuses to watch it again. 😅 (edited) 2y

Been meaning to read this for awhile so I can watch the movie! (I'm one of those weirdos who like to make sure I read the book first before seeing the movie if possible 🤓) It's on sale today on audible for $3.95.

Ok, what is this sorcery?! I had no idea they were making one of my favorite books into a movie, AND Lily James is in it! (Love her!) Take a look at the trailer which was just posted. It looks really good, can't wait to see it!

Zelma @JenlovesJT47 yes, I adore the book! Thinking about rereading this one soon. 2y
JenlovesJT47 @Zelma the book is awesome! I need to get myself a copy and reread it. 2y
BookishMe 😍😍😍 the book! Excited for the movie but not getting hopes high. 2y
JenlovesJT47 @BookishMe fingers crossed that the movie will be good! I love Lily James and the previews look good. Has a bunch of good actors too - her and Sybil and Mrs. Crawley from Downton Abbey are all in it! 😍 2y
BookishMe @JenlovesJT47 I don't watch movies / TV shows so often and neither do I follow Downtown Abbey *oops* 😅😅 2y
JenlovesJT47 @BookishMe hehe that's ok. Would highly recommend Downton though if you're ever in the mood to binge watch a show! 2y
BookishMe @JenlovesJT47 I just ended a Suits binge ;p taking a break from Netflix for now 2y
Amanda.T So excited for this! I loved the book and Downton Abbey is one of my favorite shows. 💕 2y
JenlovesJT47 @Amanda.T Downton Abbey is awesome, I've been thinking of doing a rewatch soon. I've only watched the whole series five times already! 😳😱😅 2y
AnneCecilie I'm really looking forward to that. I see several Downton Abby actors reuniting for this. 2y
JenlovesJT47 @AnneCecilie me too! I wish it had a release date but hopefully it comes out by summertime! 2y
AnneCecilie @JenlovesJT47 living in Norway, I will probably have to wait longer than that. 2y

I randomly came across this at the library and was pleasantly surprised. Yes, I am a Twilight fan but I'm not obsessed. But this book will really make you appreciate how much work goes into making a movie. I also like the fact that the director is very into details. I think that is very important when turning a book into a movie. I definitely learned some things that I will be looking for next time I watch it. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️#Twilight 🎬🎟🎭

MrBook Great review! 2y

Pretty excited about sitting down to this movie. Not sure how I missed it in theaters -- two of my favorite actors + one of my favorite recent books! I'll let you know on the flip side... #booksintomovies

mom2bugnbee So, so good, y'all! 2y
