I feel like August was a bit of a so-so reading month for me. I only read four books, which, I know, is quite a lot, but I feel like I could’ve read more. Anyway, here’s what I read this month:
September through to December is my favourite part of the year, and I always find myself reading a lot during these months. I think it’s the colder weather that makes me want to just curl up with a book, and so I’m really looking forward to reading a few books this month. I like to keep my TBR’S quite short, so I should be able to read all of the books on my TBR, and hopefully one or two more.
I’ve never written a Top Ten Tuesday post before, but this weeks list really inspired me. This week is “Back to School Freebie”; anything back to school related. Out of the suggested lists, I’ve decided to go with “Books to Compliment a History Lesson”. I know this post is nearly two days late, but historical fiction is one of my favourite genres, so I thought it would be fun to share with you a few books that I’ve enjoyed that have taught me a lot about different historical periods.
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature created by The Broke and The Bookish. Every Tuesday, a new list is posted, and other book bloggers are invited to post their top ten books that correspond to that list. You can find out more about Top Ten Tuesday here.
Whenever a movie is released that’s based on a book, you can guarantee that you will hear the phrase “the book was better”, and I’m usually the first one to say so. Let’s be honest, generally books are better than they’re film adaptations, but that isn’t so say that the films can’t be amazing.
I love reading, but I also love watching films, and to be honest, sometimes I would spend an evening watching a two hour film adaptation than spend two hours reading a fraction book. So I thought I’d share with you a few of my favourite book-to-movie adaptations
My Goodreads rating – 2 out of 5 stars (rating changed: original rating – 3 out of 5 stars)
NOTE – even though this review is spoiler free, it does contain spoilers for the rest of the Harry Potter series, for both the books and the films.
