#SundayQuestions: Which book do you keep telling yourself you'll read but you probably won't?




Originally, this book was Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand. Simply because of curiosity of it. But I've read Anthem of hers hated it and don't ever want to read anything from her again. It was torture and I feel anything longer by her would kill me.

But for me the book series that fits this is Harry Potter by JK Rowling. Not because I feel like I am too old to read it. Just I feel I missed the time where this book would have been one of my favorites.

I wasn't allowed to read it when I was younger. My family was in its blossoming church and conservative life when it came out. Of course, the belief that this book was evil and full of witchcraft held strongly in my church. My dad even went to school and had it removed from her classes whole class reading -- they had to pick something else to read.

I've recently read the first book I think last year or the year before. I feel I would have loved the hell out of this as a kid. But it's not something I will actively try to finish.

No, I don't even like the movies all that much.

Which book do you keep telling yourself you'll read but you probably won't?


Question came from Justyourtypicalbookblog.blogspot.com it's a dead blog but still houses these questions. So. I don't think they're the originator of the questions but figured I'd tell that I didn't just pull these questions out of the air. 

#SundayQuestions: Which book should never have been turned into a film?



geralt
Is this question asking me which book should never have been made into a movie? Was this question originally after Name A Movie That is Better than the Book, but was moved. So here it is being asked further down and seems out of place.

Note: The post's question & what is in the image is purposefully changed. I just didn't feel like changing the image for this blog. If I am incorrect in what this is asking then OH WELL. Here we are. Also if this question isn't asking me what I think it is....oop. 

So, a book that I believe should have never been turned into a movie. For me books that became movies and shouldn't have happened: Eragon & The Da Vinci Code. Love Tom Hanks but hated the movie.

Reason for Eragon: I only kind of liked the book and the movie was worse. It was irksome.

The Da Vinci Code: Again, love Tom Hanks, hate this movie & the book. For some reason my teacher for our Bible History class in high school (I went to a public school.) ...thought this was relevant to the class. Just torture.
