When it comes to reading a book or watching a movie, I would do the latter. I am not against people who would like to watch more. But my preferred method is read the book first then watch the movie. Somehow, this is like when a certain manga series is expected to be made into an anime. Some anime adaptations are true to the manga but others are not. Likewise so with book adaptations. I have read a lot of books but I gravitate more to stories which have not been adopted to a series or movie. As for books which have been made into books, I have not read much. So here is a list of books I would like to read before watching the movie or television adaptation.
The list of books which I am reading
- Kulti by Mariana Zapata
- Heir of Fire by Sarah J Maas
- My Plain Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, Jodi Meadows
- The Martian by Andrew Weir
