It’s tiem for another Tag Tuesday and this week I am completing the…

 

MID-YEAR BOOK FREAKOUT TAG!

 

This is a tag that was created by Chami from Read Like Wildfire and Ely from Earl Grey Books. This tag affords readers the opportunity to reflect on their reading in the first half of the year. I was not tagged to complete this, but I did it last year and really enjoyed myself and so am completing it again.

FAVOURITE BOOK-TO-FILM ADAPTATION YOU SAW IN 2017

 

Beauty and the Beast

Technically, Beauty and the Beast is an adaptation of a fictional work. If you count this than Beauty and the Beast was my absolute favourite adaptation of the year so far. It was just spectacular.

 

 

 

Before I Fall

If you don’t count Beauty and the Beast, than my answer would be Before I Fall. I really enjoyed the book and the movie seemed to stick strongly to the main elements of the book.
