Book vs. Television Series: Father Brown

I'm sure that I have said this many times before (both on The Unapologetic Bookworm and in person), but whether it's in the form of a book or a television series, I love a good mystery.

Comic Book vs. Movie – Snowpiercer

While my personal policy is to read books prior to seeing the movie adaptation, there are times when that isn't always possible.

Book vs. Movie – Pan’s Labyrinth

One of the books I was most looking forward to reading this year was Pan's Labyrinth: The Labyrinth of the Faun, a novelization of the 2006 movie, directed by Guillermo del Toro.
