Read the book or watch the movie first

We are officially in the age of the teen book turned all-the-rage movie. I'm not even talking about Twilight.

At the top of my list is the zombie dark comedy Warm Bodies. I haven't read the 2011 book by Isaac Marion because zombies freak me out, but I really want to watch the movie. I'm starting to think I want to read the book too.

The March release of The Host is a must see for me since I love the book by Stephanie Meyer.

Kami Garcia's Beautiful Creatures looks just like the title suggests, then add angst and forbidden love, at least the previews make it look that way.

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones looks very big-production-ish. I'm most tempted to read the Cassandra Clare series before watching the movie.

If you're equal parts book and movie lover, how do you decide which one to partake in first?Stieg-Larsson's Girl With the Dragon Tattoo series made this decision real easy. I simply read the movies.

    I loved this post, because I LOVE zombie reads and I haven't come across 'Warm Bodies'. So thank you for that!! I will definitely add it to my list.


  4. Even though I'm a wuss about zombies I have watched so many zombie movies, and read a few books. If you haven't watched the preview for the movie, here's the link. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=07s-cNFffDM
