Day 15 – Least Favourite Book Adaptation

Insurgent

This was the film that made me give up on the whole Divergent movie series. Which really annoyed me as Insurgent was my favourite book out of the series.

I enjoyed reading Divergent, but Insurgent was by far my favourite. It ramped up the stakes, and I got completely lost and invested in the book. (I wasn’t a fan of the third book though). I was okay with the first Divergent film, and thought that Insurgent would be a fun watch. I was wrong. From  the first time I saw the trailer, I was just confused. What the hell is that box with all the tubes and such? The whole time I was watching this movie I’m sure I had a perplexed look on my face. They veered miles from the original source material, and I didn’t get lost in the world like I did reading the story.

I mean, this whole series still feels like a copy of the Hunger Games a little, but at least the books were enjoyable and engaging. Can’t say the same about the movie versions.

What’s your least favourite book adaptation?

1000 Followers Party Hangover

Well hello all. You may know that I recently hit 1000 followers during the week, and to celebrate, I had a little (big) blogging party. I reposted it a few times to give everyone a chance to come by, and boy did the party get huge. My notification feed was going nuts, and since I get an email for every like and comment, my email got pretty full as well. But I’m not complaining, in fact I’m doing the opposite. I wanna say thank you to everyone who came by and celebrated reaching 1000 followers with me. So many people brought something to the party, talked to everyone else, and even when I left to go to sleep, the party just kept on swinging 😂

So this post will be a wrap up of the party of sorts, I’m now going through all the comments and collecting what everyone has brought. This way we can all get a visual of how crazy this party got.
