Thanks to Bianca @ The Ultimate Fangirl for tagging me to do the Read This, Watch This book tag!

1. If you have read…

You should watch…


I couldn’t do this tag without including this film (in case you didn’t know it’s my favourite!). I would recommend this to fans of 1920’s literature and authors such as F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway (both of which are characters in this movie). It has the charm of the Great Gatsby, with the 1920’s costume, music and art, but is also much more light-hearted, funny and heart-warming.

I don’t think I need to explain what the X-Men films are about. In fact, this is probably more of an ‘if you’ve watched this, you should read this’ recommendation. Vicious has many comparisons to X-Men, the biggest being the Extra-Ordinary abilities. There is also your Xavier-Magneto-type duo, but with a much more complex and blurred relationship, and with more questionable motives and actions.

3. If you have read…


You should watch…


Do you like your dystopian and sci-fi movies with lots of adventure, an escape plan, a dash of romance, and just the right amount of creepy (just like The Maze Runner)? Then this is the movie for you! The Island is all of these things, following an isolated high-tech compound, where two characters make some unsettling discoveries, and stage a daring run for answers and, ultimately, freedom. Sound much like the Maze Runner trilogy? This film is very much like a grown-ups version of the Maze Runner.

4. If you have read…

the winners curse

You should watch…


Okay, you’re probably wondering how on earth these two things are connected. Well, while reading The Winner’s Curse, I couldn’t help but compare it to Sherlock, because of the main character: Kestrel. Her thought processes, knowledge, and cunning and clever calculation were so much like Sherlock’s. Her coldness at emotional situations, and the way she worked through certain mysteries and characters’ secrets in her mind reminded me of our modern-day Sherlock.

5. If you have read…


You should watch…


In fact, if you like fairytale re-tellings in general, and still haven’t watched Once Upon A Time, you should really give it a try! It blends many fairy tales, winding them together and putting characters from different tales in the same situations – much like the Lunar Chronicles. It doesn’t have the sci-fi, futuristic feel of The Lunar Chronicles, but if you like re-tellings, new takes on old tales, and fun characters, this is a great TV show to try!
