I HATE YOU.
Flowers in the Attic by V.C. Andrews.
This novel changed my life (I was 11 years old). Then the movie ruined it. It wasn't just the horrible acting, it was mainly due to after the first hour the storyline jumped from the beginning outlined in the book to the very end. The entire middle was skipped and honestly...the best parts.
Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer.
Those who have followed my blog for a while know my feelings regarding this. Rush a product and reap the consequences. Also, don't choose actors who are beautifully wrapped, but completely empty inside.
I LOVE YOU.
The first two movies were totally magical...really...but then the story began to be cut more and more to fit the movie time limits. Not anyone's fault and what they cut was not action but character development and relationship growth. So those of you who looked at me like I was crazy when I loudly sobbed in the movie theater as Sirius died...you can suck it. If you read the books you would have been crying too.
The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton:
I grew up right outside of Tulsa before getting my ass to Texas as quickly as I could but I didn't need that reason to love this book. Or the ones that came after. This was pure teenage gold and the movie cast was a who's who of up and coming superstars.
Lord of the Rings trilogy by J.R.R. Tolkien:
I am saying the only thing I can say. Thank you. From the bottom of my heart.
That's it for today. Tomorrow I give you...my wish list. Will it surprise you? Probably not.
