First a Book, Now a Movie

One of the things that inspired me to return to this blog was that everywhere I turned lately, I saw a young adult novel turned into a book.

Of course, first is the already-released The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2. It's actually based on the fourth and final book in the series, Forever in Blue.

This weekend, Samurai Girl played on ABC Family as a three-part miniseries. Since the Samurai Girl book series was never completed, I was happy to see it at least found new life in this adaptation.

Finally, on October 3, Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist makes its way into theaters. There's something about the tone that seems a bit off in comparison to the books, but I'm still intrigued.

I'd be curious to know what you think. Did Sisterhood and Samurai Girl live up to the source material? Does the trailer for Nick and Norah look promising, or do you think they've ruined your favorite book?
