HELP! I like these movie adaptations more than their books!

So guys…as you all know, I love books. I truly do. I prefer them to movies. And I feel that there’s so much to learn from them. We can live an entirely different life vicariously, learn about other people’s good and bad experiences, learn to become tolerant and accepting and loving. Books change us and they make us better versions of ourselves. And I’m sure you all know this already. So I’m gonna cut it out and talk about how there are so many books that get turned into movies, and how there are so many movies based on books that are equally good, and how there are so many books that are better than the movies, and how there are a few movies that are actually *better* than the books.

Well, that’s what I would like to talk about. Below is the list of movies I liked better than the books. So, let’s get started!

🌺 To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before (Book) (Movie)

I love this movie. I totally adore it! It is one of my favorite book-to-movie adaptations. And I am super glad that I got to watch it.

It’s a teen romantic comedy. It’s about a sixteen-year-old girl Lara Jean who’s had crushes over the years, like a lot of us. And she writes love letters to those crushes but never sends them. She’s had a massive crush on Josh, the boy her sister, Margot, is dating. One day, the love letters somehow get sent to all those crushes of hers, and before shit hits the fan (she’s gotta do some damage control so that Josh doesn’t think she still likes him) she starts to fake-date another of her crushes Peter Kavinsky (who also received the letters). And Peter and Lara Jean fall in love during this fake-date thingy.

I love watching romantic comedies, and I had liked this book and given it 4/5 stars. So, I had to watch the movie. I’m glad that I watched it because it is one of my favorite movies of this year, and my favorite adaptation, as I’ve already mentioned before. I like it more than I liked the book, and it’s mostly because Lara Jean in the book is kinda childish and naive, and she was kinda sweet in the movie! Also, I am so in love with Lana Condor and Noah Centineo and I totally ship LJ and Peter. I’m waiting for the next two movies! 😍

🌺 Five Feet Apart (Book) (Movie)

Five Feet Apart is also one of my favorite movies of this year. When I had read the book, I had liked it and perhaps given it five stars (4.75 actually?). However, I started doubting my rating after a few days because we’ve watched the same story being told over and over. And I’m kinda bored by it, to be honest.

It’s a story of two teenagers, Will, and Stella, both of who suffer from a deadly disease called cystic fibrosis that doesn’t let them touch each other and always remain six-feet-apart from each other.

When I watched the movie, I felt like there was something fresh about the story! Not to mention that I have a huge crush on Cole Sprouse! I liked the book, but I loved the movie! The actors have done an amazing job and… I just love it!

🌺 Call Me By Your Name (Book) (Movie)

I was super amazed when I had read this book! Call Me By Your Name had become one of my favorite novels. It is not the kind of book I usually like, but I had loved it. So, when I realized that I could watch a movie based on this book, I was super excited!

It’s a story of a seventeen-year-old Italian guy Elio who falls in love with his father’s 24-year-old research assistant (is that what he is? My memory fails me).

I had loved the movie, and now that I haven’t watched it in so many days, I want to watch it again. I liked it even more than I had liked the book, especially because it just feels so real and passionate.

🌺 Everything, Everything (Book) (Movie)

It’s also another movie that I liked more than the book. To be honest, I wasn’t a great fan of the book! I had read about 40% of it before setting it aside, and before I could get around to reading it again, I had watched the movie!

It’s about a girl named Madeline who has got a rare disease that makes her stay inside her house all the time because of her sucky immune system. However, she soon falls in love with the new guy in her neighborhood, Olly. But, she can’t be with him because of her disease, can she?

I really wanted to know how this story pans out. So, I watched this movie. I enjoyed it more than I enjoyed the book, but I didn’t really adore it. I didn’t like the way the disease was depicted and I didn’t like the ending at all! I am still gutted about the ending y’all

Book: N/A ||| Movie: 🌟🌟🌠

🌺 Every Day (Book) (Movie)

I wasn’t a fan of the book. I’ve had so many unpopular opinions this year, and this was another. I finished it just because I had to.

Every Day is the story of A, who wakes up in the body of different people every day. And when he wakes up in the body of Justin, he falls in love with his girlfriend Rhiannon.

It’s an interesting concept that piqued my interest. When I’d read it though, I hadn’t liked the book at all. However, I gave the movie a shot and even though I didn’t enjoy it as much as I should have, it was better than the book.

  1. I one hundred percent agree about To All the Boys. I had SUCH an incredibly hard time getting into the book. I got about halfway through in a month and haven’t picked it up since. I still plan to finish it, but every time I go to pick it up I just don’t want to.

    1. I feel you. I also found getting into it kinda difficult initially. I think it was because I didn’t relate one bit to Lara Jean and found her kinda childish. However, I was able to power through it. In retrospect, it wasn’t really a bad read. I really hope that the book gets better and you’re able to enjoy it! I loved the movie, though. It was way better than the book.
