Sis Read-a-thon Update #1

(FYI: I've decided to abbreviate Spring Into Summer as SiS, lest you be confused)

It's time for the first update &mini-challenge! For this mini-challenge I want you to tell me your favorite and least favorite movie adaptation of a book.

Here's my update and mini challenge answer!


  • Total Books Read: 0
  • Total Pages Read: 0
  • Books Read Since Last Update: 0
  • Pages Read since last update: 0
  • Total time read: 0
  • How I'm currently feeling: Ready to done with work so I can get to reading!
Mini Challenge:
  • Favorite book-movie adaptation: I'm a big fan of the Lord of the Rings movies, and I also think the Harry Potter movies have done a great job portraying the books.
  • Least favorite book-movie adaptation: Now this one I can answer a lot easier. I REALLY disliked the Eragon movie (the scene with Saphira in the clouds. Really?!). But I think the one that takes the cake is Ella Enchanted. I cried when I saw it(not happy tears). It was NOTHING like the book, and I love the book so much. Now that it's been a few years since I've read/seen it I might see it again, just so I can MAYBE enjoy it as a movie, and not as an adaptation.

  1. Are we supposed to do the mini challenges on our blogs? I hope so because that is what I'm doing.

  2. I think we are unless we don't have a blog.

  3. I did mine on my blog. And here's my comment! I want to read this series! Good luck everybody!

  4. Favorite:I thought they did a good job with I am Number Four.
    Least favorite: I would say Avalon High but that probably doesn't really count because it was a disney channel movie so Princess Diaries because it was nothing like the book.

  5. Update
    books read:0
    pages read:108
    hours read:1.5

  6. Loving this read-a-thon!
    I'm taking part in the mini challenges for fun, but not entering the giveaways as i'm international. Holding out for the international one tomorrow!


  7. I'm such a jocker! Actually, though, the LOTR and Harry Potter movies ARE some of my favorite books to film adaptations! :)

  8. If you have a blog, post updates and challenge-answers there(you're welcome to just update one post throughout the day). If you don't have a blog, comment. Make sense?

  9. Good Questions! I updated on my blog and good luck to everyone who is entering to win Outside In! I have read it and it is fantastic!

  10. I Just got inside out, so outside in would be perfect!


  11. I want to put a few updates on one post and just keep linking to that one post so I'm not clogging the feeds of my followers. Is this okay? Anybody know?

  12. Ack! Ignore my first link on this post...put it in the wrong place!

  13. Okay, the second link with the asterisks is my real one lol. :)

  14. I'm skipping the mini challenge, but just put up my first book review of the readathon!

    Thanks for organizing this.

  15. posted- now if kids allow it ..Back to reading!

  16. I actually really liked the Ella Enchanted movie, but I watched it before I read the book, and to me they're so different that I pretty much consider them separate, the movie was more "inspired" by the book than anything lol
    And Eragon, I must agree was not very good, the only thing I liked about that movie was Garrett Hedlund and that was because I am a huge sucker for Murtagh and he has such a low voice...just like I imagined ;) haha

    Hope work and your appointment go by fast so you can get reading too. ;)

    Happy reading and good luck everybody! :D

  17. I was late for my first I am not eligible to win, but I linked up anyway, because I made the post, and thought I'd link it up for people to read! :)

    Happy Reading everyone! :D
