The Book Adaptations Tag 🎬

Hello and howdy 🤠

Big things are happening when it comes to book-adaptations! Heartstopper has become a worldwide sensation, Shadow & Bone season 2 is filming, the Percy Jackson trio casting has been announced and they are perfection, and there’s so much more!!

All very exciting so it seems like there’s no better time then now to do the Book Adaptations Tag which I was tagged to do by Madeline @ The Bookish Mutant. Thank you Madeline!!

What is the last book adaptation movie you saw?

Not a movie, but I feel like a lot of books are being adapted into TV shows more then movies nowadays so we’re couting. Of course the last book adaption I watched was Hearstopper.

However I’m worried about the format of the show. This first season is said to encompass both the Shadow and Bone trilogy aswell as parts of the Six of Crow duology and I just don’t know how that’s going to mesh.
