As readers, we always prefer the books over the movie. However, that doesn't mean we don't like to see our favorite characters and stories come to life on the big screen (or our TVs/laptops). I have to say that I can't really complain about a lot of the movies I've seen that were based off … Continue reading Books I’d Love to See as Films
Hey all! I hope you're all fairing well during this challenging time in the world. It's definitely not easy, but as long as we all work together and support those on the front lines (health care, first responders, etc) we'll beat this thing!
