ABOUT THE WIZARD
So…you wanna meet the woman behind the curtain?! Hi! I’m Katisha, the wizard behind the blog upon which you have stumbled. Thanks for stopping by and getting to know more about me! I’m a certified nerd who loves traveling, makeup, Beyoncé, baking, podcasts, sunflowers, and books of all shapes and sizes. Do you remember that scene in Beauty in the Beast where Belle finds the library in the castle? That is my animated dream come true, a library so huge that even standing on your tippy toes and stretching your arm beyond capacity can’t help you reach the top shelf. Swoon!
Hey fellow book lover! Have you ever heard that the book you are currently devouring is coming out as a movie soon? And you can hardly contain your excitement because you can’t wait to see that amazing story brought to screen. No?! Me neither! You and I both know that it will disappoint because the movie never does justice to the book we’ve grown to absolutely adore. I’m looking at you Memoirs of a Geisha and The Bourne Identity. If you have ever felt the burn from a
mediocre terrible book to movie adaptation, then Reel Literature is the place for you.
At Reel Literature, we review books and their movie adaptations and let you know if the movie holds a candle to its bookish origins. Is the movie adaptation a visual monstrosity? Most likely. Does the film literally bring the pages to life? Probably not. Although book to movie adaptations are the bread and butter of Reel Literature, we will occasionally sprinkle in non-movie book reviews because WE LOVE BOOKS (as said in Oprah’s voice from her “I love bread” Weight Watchers commercial), and we want to promote the work of authors from diverse backgrounds who represent marginalized groups. You’ll also notice that we do more than just write reviews. Want to talk to other book fans? Stop by the Reel Lit Gabfest. It’s the virtual book club where we share our stand out quotes and random thoughts from the book and movie. Looking to know what’s grabbing our attention in the Wide World of Books?
