    Question RQOTD - Tuesday

    What was the last book that you read and then watched the movie that was made after it? Do you prefer to read a book first and then watch the movie or the other way around?

    It was probably a Harry Potter movie. I want to watch The Hunger Games, but DH has not read the books yet. So, I will patiently wait. I have a feeling the movie will not compare to my view of the books though.

    I always prefer to read the books first when possible. It is nice to envision the characters and setting yourself without Hollywood creating it for you.

    It was the Twighlight series. I always prefer to read the book first. I did see Pride and Pejudice before I read the book and still loved reading it though.

    It was probably the Harry Potter books. I generally won't watch a movie that I've read the book, they never live up to how I pictured things or the characters are all wrong for what I pictured in my head.

    IDK.... I have the first of the Hunger Games sitting on my night stand, does that count? Finding time to read has been near impossible lately.

    Hunger Games. It was the last movie I saw in theatre. I read that book little over a year ago.

    It really depends on the move/book if I care to read the book or not. Some I do, some I don't. Sometimes I read the book first, sometimes not. Doesn't really bother me either way.

    Ditto. I enjoyed both very much. I was worried the movie would let me down, but it totally held up.
