What I'm Reading and Watching- November

I want to try to update at least once a month about what I'm reading.

What I read:
Doctor Strange Vol. 2 The Last Days of Magic by Jason Aaron

Really dark and exciting. I've loved this series so far and am looking forward to the next volume. And on another note I loved the Doctor Strange movie.

Everything, everythingby Nicola Yoon

I honestly bought it because it was on sale for $2 on Kindle one day and ended up really liking it. I also recently found out there's a movie adaptation coming out next year, so that's an awesome surprise!

What I'm Reading

Witches in Redby Barb Hendee

Book 2 in the Mist Torn Witches series. It has magic, werewolves, swords, castles- what's not to like?

The View From the Cheap Seats by Neil Gaiman

A collection of non-fiction by one of my favorite authors. It's awesome. There's an essay where he talks about Tolkien (my favorite author). I thought I was going to explode.

What I'm Watching

The Crown (no spoilers)

I'm almost finis…

Top Ten Tuesday 11/15: Movie Adaptations of Books

A Weekly Meme Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
This week's topic is a movie freebie. I decided to do my favorite book to movie adaptations. I know this might be a heated topic- a lot of people are very tough on movie adaptations- but I really enjoy seeing my favorite books come to life. As long as they keep mainly to the story and the spirit of the original I'm not too harsh. Feel free to agree to disagree, here are my top ten adaptations (I'm also including graphic novels and TV adaptations of books). 
Top Ten Book to Movie Adaptations 
1. The Lord of the Rings Trilogy
I'm a huge Tolkien fan. He's my favorite author and The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit are my favorite books. Fellowship of the Ring is actually my favorite movie of all time. 
2. The Martian I feel like Matt Damon did an awesome job bringing Mark Watney to life. Plus the special effects were amazing. 
3. Atonement Atonement is my favorite Ian McEwan novel. Like the book the movie is heartbreak…
