Love the book. Tolerate the movie.
Reel Literature is the book blog giving the how and why the book is ALWAYS better than its movie adaptation because just like you fellow bibliophile, we hate when movies ruin our favorite books too! It doesn’t matter if it’s a book based on true events like The Blind Side, a New York Times bestseller like Gone Girl, a classic in children’s literature like The Lorax, a highly praised YA novel like The Book Thief, or a staple from everyone’s high school reading list like Lord of the Flies, the movie will rarely capture the true essence of the book. Don’t believe us? Then, check out our book and movie reviews!
Want more than reviews? We’ve got you covered! Chat with us about our favorite book quotes in the Reel Lit Quotefest. In Features, we explore our creative side on various bookish and pop culture topics. We analyze Harry Potter, share DIY Halloween costumes for the bookish spirit, take a BuzzFeed Quiz or five, and “read” Jane Eyre. PLUS! Be in the know of bookish holidays, author birthdays, upcoming movie adaptations, and new books for your TBR List with Literary News!
