Now I'm reading The Hunger Games. So far, it's a really good YA novel. The pacing is excellent; I've had a hard time putting it down because there is just constant conflict/danger. I know these books have been popular for a while now, and I finally got motivated enough to read them because the movie is coming and I know I'll want to see it. I'll rarely read a book after seeing the movie, but I will watch a movie after seeing the book. Let The Right One In is the exception - I saw the Swedish film and almost all of the American remake first, but the book had so much more to offer that I fell in love with it.
Do the movies affect what you read? Will you reread a series if a movie is coming out? (I'm looking at you, Harry Potter fans, although you'll have to read fast to do a series reread before The Deathly Hallows Pt. 2.) I'd love to hear your thoughts on books and movies and how they intersect.
