Today I have a couple of exciting updates for this year’s Book to Movie Challenge. This year for the challenge, Sergio of Tipping My Fedora reviewed over 20 books and their movie adaptations while I’ve been working pretty hard to meet my goal of 12. So I thought, you know who should be co-hosting this challenge? Sergio. So I asked if he’d be interested and he said yes! That means that for two of the quarterly round-ups, Sergio will be doing posts updating you on how the challenge is going while I do the other two. Once the linky for adding reviews goes live next year, you’ll also be able to add reviews at a post on his blog as well as here at Doing Dewey.

Although there will be a wrap-up post for the 2013 challenge later, I’d like to thank everyone who participated for making this challenge such fun that I can’t wait to host it again next year. Plus, can you believe all of the movies based on books that came out this year?! Doing this challenge, I’ve been amazed at the number of book to movie adaptations there are and I’ve loved seeing some great books brought to life on screen.
Congrats to the winner of a $10 Amazon Giftcard, Kai at Fiction State of Mind!
It’s hour 20! We made it! Well, actually, I’m scheduling this in advance, so you and the minions definitely made it. I might be asleep by now! Either way, welcome to the hour 20 Let’s Get Social challenge 🙂 Here’s what we’re going to be doing… Continue reading
Hi all! I can’t believe it’s October already and we’re three-quarters of the way through the Book to Movie Challenge! I’m finally starting to get caught up, having read eight books and watched six movies (review of The Count of Monte Cristo movie to come). So far, I think my favorite movie was The King’s Speech and my favorite book was Sense and Sensibility. And now on to how everyone else is doing!
Hi all! We are officially at the halfway point in the Book to Movie challenge! Well, halfway through the year anyway. Personally, I’m a quarter of the way through my challenge, having read and reviewed Starship Troopers, Under the Tuscan Sun, and Jane Eyre. I haven’t loved any of them as much as some adaptations I saw last year, but hopefully things will pick up with my next book-to-movie read (I’m thinking The King’s Speech). Now, on to how everyone else is doing! Continue reading
Hello all! This marks the three month point on our Book to Movie Challenge so I’m going to let you all know a little bit about how I and your other fellow readers are doing. Our first review linked up was A Christmas Carol by Darlene’s Book Nook and the latest review added was The Case of the Late Pig from Sergio at Tipping My Fedora. Counting me, 10 of us only have one review done. Both Bettina at A Corner of the Library and Sergio at Tipping My Fedora have 5 – the most anyone has done! My only review so far has been Starship Troopers (Book and Movie reviews both done). I have, however, read some other books intending to watch the movie and then had the movie vanish off Netflix, so hopefully I’ll get more done the next three months. I hope everyone is having fun and would love to hear how things are going 🙂
