First Monday Of The Month Giveaway: July

Well obviously I'm a little late with the details this month, but its been a busy few weeks!

We moved house and boy was it a hard task to move all of 504 meters up the road!!!
Thats right, we are now 1 farm further up the road.

I think moving such a short distance is worse in some respects because we still had to pack everything up and load it on the truck.
The poor truck driver then drove the huge distance of 900 meters (the driveway was 400m long!) to our new place to unload everything!!!

But with lots of help from family and friends we were pretty much done by lunchtime.
The unpacking is still a little haphazard but we'll get there.

Anyway........on with the comp!

As I'm still a little all over the place I'm doing it the hassle free way!

For your chance to win ONE book of your choice to the value of US$12 from The Book Depository  tell me..............
'what is your favorite book to movie adaptation and why?'

For me the answer is The Lord Of The Rings trilogy because no matter how many times I've tried to read the books.....I just cant get into them!

So leave a comment with your answer and your email address so I can contact you if you win. 
Comp will close on the 25th July and winner will be chosen at random.
You must live in a country that TBD delivers to. Good luck xox


  1. I would love to see The House of Night Series by P.C. Cast be put to movie... Im really curious as to how theyll work the tattoos and the half raven half human creatures to life. If ever they do, I hope they don't do it with CGI =P and I would LOVE to see how Stark would look in live action **swoon** lol

    Thanks for hosting this giveaway!!

  2. I just have two words - HARRY POTTER!!! Yup. this is my fave book to movie adaptation. I remember the first book came out when i was but I wasn't interested in reading it. My love for HP only started after my friends dragged me to the theatre to watch the third movie. There's been no looking back since then. I'm soooooo excited to see the final movie.

    Thanks for the giveaway.


  3. I think one of the best adaptations I have seen/read was JAWS.

    It was just as frightening printed as on yhe screen.

    Thanks for the giveaway.

  4. 4 me
    the cronicals of narnia
    i know it a kids book but it ws a bit how i imagine it


  5. Pride and Prejudice...even though they have several versions for movie and television, my favorite is the most recently released movie version. I swear I *swoon* each and every time I watch it or read the book!

  6. i think the whole harry potter series adaptations were great though they editted some parts,it definitely came very close to my imagination.the graphics and details in the movies were amazing.

    thanks for the giveaway and for making it international!!

  8. Going to have to say Harry Potter #1,2 and 4. The visual effects blew me away, I thought the Chamber of Secrets in the movie was brilliant!!! But I Am Number Four was pretty good too, I just read the book this week and it was hard picking between the movie or the book!!! ;)

    New Follower, Great review of Ultraviolet :)


  9. My favorite is The Lord of the rings too, because the movies are so beautiful and even better than the books.

  13. Right now with the last movie out and everything I would probably say Harry Potter though I suppose the books are far better than the movies.I also loved Confessions of a Shopaholic and Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging because they were cute and fun movies.

  15. Thats's a hard question. I loved Confessions of a Shopaholic and Flipped. They were cute movies. Harry Potter and Twilight were good too, but I just don't know which one to choose.

  20. The Twilight Saga. :)I'm a GFC Follower {Sierra Cullen.♥}


  21. I would say Confessions of a Shopaholic as well. I love that movie.


  22. For me, the Godfather.


  23. I hope its ok if I say a few as I can't really pick one. I would say I love both "Mystic River" and "Shutter Island" by Dennis Lehane and their movie adaptations, as well as Stephen King's novella "Shawshank Redemption" from his "Different Seasons" collection. Also, in a completely different vein Steve Martin's "Shopgirl."

  26. hey hey
    im a follower alice priday

    i love harry potter i think its the best ever book to movie adaption, yes they changed things but the majority they kept the same, and its been amazing watching the characters/actors grow up :)


  27. My favorite book to movie choice would have to be Beastly. Since I was a little girl my favorite fairy tale has always been Beauty and the Beast. When I heard about the book Beastly, I just had to read it. I instantly fell in love with it! Then the movie was released and I was yet again fascinated with the fairy tale. Thank you for the opportunity to participate in the giveaway. My e-mail address is faerielillies06@yahoo.com

  28. Everybody will choose Harry Potter and Twilight saga, and so I am.. about the magic, actions, and about romance
    but now, I really want to watch percy jackson series... really like about myth..

  30. Hi, So, I really had to think about this, first thing that came to my mind was Dracula, because that is a classic and so many movies made from it! Then I thought wait there are more out there that I have loved. So I had to look and I found this great website called Based on the Book, which is part of a larger website. http://www.mymcpl.org/books-movies-music/based-book
    There I was reminded of a recent one, "I Am Number Four" how could I forget that, especially when I have the second book on preorder! So that is the one I would go with right now, I will change my mind many times as I go through this list and buy more book and rent more movies! Thanks for that!
    Lots of love to all readers, Jenn


I'd love to hear your thoughts, so please don't hesitate to leave a comment :)
