Book vs. Movie: The Halloween Tree

October has officially arrived, and I've really enjoyed spending the past couple of days reading spooky books as part of Seasons of Reading's FrightFall Readathon. The book I chose as my first spooky read of the season was The Halloween Tree, by Ray Bradbury. The Halloween Tree tells the story of a group of eight… Continue reading Book vs. Movie: The Halloween Tree

Book vs. Movies: A Wrinkle in Time

As many of you know, one of my reading goals for 2021 is to make a sizable dent in my TBR list by reading books that I own but have not read before. Because of this, many of the books I've chosen to read (and review) this year have been ones that I've read for… Continue reading Book vs. Movies: A Wrinkle in Time

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. Several years ago, I began watching a television series called Father Brown, which stars Mark Williams (who you may… Continue reading Book vs. Television Series: Father Brown

Book vs. Movie: Casino Royale

All over the world, the name James Bond is instantly recognized by fans of action movies and espionage-based thrillers. We know him as a suave, intelligent secret agent, who loves women and martinis (preferably "shaken, not stirred"), and who has been portrayed by a number of talented actors. With the newest James Bond movie, No… Continue reading Book vs. Movie: Casino Royale

Book vs. Movie – Austenland

Have you ever dreamed about having the opportunity to step into the world of one of Jane Austen's stories? Maybe you've imagined dressing up in Regency Era clothing, attending a ball, and falling passionately in love with your very own Mr. Darcy (or Colonel Brandon, Mr. Bingley, Captain Wentworth, Mr. Knightly...or another of Austen's fictional… Continue reading Book vs. Movie – Austenland

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. This often happens to me because a friend or family member invites me out to see a movie before I've had a chance to read (or finish reading) the book. But sometimes, I… Continue reading Comic Book vs. Movie – Snowpiercer

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. I first saw Pan's Labyrinth shortly after its DVD release, and fell in love not only with the story, but also with the… Continue reading Book vs. Movie – Pan’s Labyrinth
