2015 Book to Movie Challenge

OK, just one more (I hope!) The blog that hosted this one last year had announced that they would not be doing it again, so it looked as if there would not be books to movies challenge.  I loved this one as I try to read a book before it becomes a movie. Fortunately, another blog has taken over hosting this challenge, so I will be in again.  Sign up here.

Hello friends! Do you love movies? Do you love when books you love become movies? Welcome to the 2015 Book to Movie Challenge which was previously hosted by Katie on her blog Doing Dewey. The objective of the challenge is to share your reviews of movie or TV book adaptations, and hopefully generate some interesting discussions over the course of the year.
The challenge is super easy and flexible comprising of two parts:
♦  A quarterly check-in where you can add a link-up to your reviews; and/or
♦  Participate in a read-along of four 2015 movie adaptations.
♦  There are no hard or fast rules.
♦  You can join at any time. You can participate in one part of the challenge or both. You can participate in one read-along or all four. It’s all about having fun and what suits your interests and time.
♦ Neither the book nor the movie has to be new this year.
♦ A TV show counts if it is movie length or you have watched at least 2 episodes.
