Random little vent me and WordPress need to have a talk about it missing scheduled posts times, lol sorry it is a few hours behind what I planned this week!
THIS WEEK’S RANDOM QUESTION: What do you think about books being made into movies or tv shows and do you always read the book first?
With award season being upon us and as watching an interesting Golden Globes had me thinking about just how many movies and shows are made from books. The Night Manager took several awards (well done too) but the book was awesome. The Night Manager is one of those for me that it was really cool to see characters I already enjoyed coming alive. Jonathan Pine was such a complex character and Tom Hiddleston really did bring him to life for me. I was pleased to see he won a Golden Globe for it too, as did Hugh Laurie and Olivia Coleman.
So I know I have rambled on a little bit here, but I actually like most book to screen translations. Not all the time, of course, because sometimes they really do screw it up, but in general I do. I always try to read the book first there have been a few times I didn’t know it was based on a book until after so I went back and read the book. How about you?

I’ve talked about The Night Manager as one of my favourite adaptations too! It was such a good TV show. I agree that some adaptations are absolutely awful but I do really enjoy some.
My Musing Mondays post for this week is about why I cringe when I’m reading certain romance novels.
It is one of my favorites too! I am so pleased they took some awards at the Golden Globes yesterday too. Was a brilliant script and a brilliant cast just loved it.
Neat question this week. I usually like adaptations as well.

I’d never heard of The Night Manager as either a film or a book before seeing the Golden Globe winners list (I don’t tend to watch the award shows). Might have to check it out now just based on the cast.
Awesome question! And so fitting for what’s been on my mind all of yesterday and today! Hehe.
Mine is so late this week, sorry! 🙂
