Top 10 Books That I Liked A Bit More As Movies

I’m starting this week off by bringing you ten book to movie adaptations that I thought worked wonderfully. All these books are okay, some are actually very good, but others simply aren’t as strong. The point of the Top 10 list is that the movies were better than books. Yes, I love some adaptations a bit more than the books and that is rare. By the way, I’ve been reading less books lately, so if you have any recommendations to me (to get out of the reading slump) feel free to leave those in the comments!

It Chapter Two (2019)

It’s been a hot minute since I sat down and wrote a review. It has been so long I feel like I don’t even know how and where to begin. And it has been quite a while since I saw this movie so… let’s see how it holds up! I’ll start with the simplest of ways. I did not love It Chapter Two. The movie had its moments, some of which will forever remain my favourite, but overall, the magic the first chapter had wasn’t recreated.

Thursday Movie Picks Halloween Edition: Masks

Well.. this is going to be a hell of a month for me when it comes to Thursday Movie Picks because I will be outside my comfort zone the entire time. In other words, I’m not that good with horror related movies, and when I say not that good, I mean I suck at watching them. So there’s no surprise there when I say that I’ve seen only a few, which makes this month a very tight squeeze, and this week’s theme of “masks” is not the best fit either.

Commercial Break #85

Past few weeks have been quiet here on Mettel Ray because I’ve been feeling a bit off lately. It’s nothing serious, no health related things, just an off month it seems. But that being said, I’ll try to put as much effort in to at least posting Thursday Movie Picks each week, and then Commercial Breaks as well if I have time to sit down properly. Reviews.. well, we’ll see.

Commercial Break #82

Had to work this morning so I came home pretty late and actually thought about not writing a Commercial Break. But I already skipped last week and I’m actually really trying to push through this weird bloggers block I seem to be suffering from. So, I have my evening coffee (I know, I might be crazy), some chocolate popcorn (delicious), and two weeks to summarise. So, let’s go!

Reading Wrap Up: July

These images are taken from my personal bookstagram account

Well another month has passed and I’m still on track with my reading challenge. It may seem like a weird thing to say, considering I had a month off from work this past July, but it was a surprise to me. Partly because I didn’t feel like reading at the beginning of summer, and then I decided to pick up a massive book. Luckily, everything worked out well, and I actually managed to finish four books, and start the fifth before the month ended.

Commercial Break #79

Part of me feels I wasted two whole weeks of vacation on nothing. I didn’t write any reviews, I didn’t finish reading Stephen King’s It, and I watched mostly shitty movies and binge watched one show. As you can see, I had no grand adventures nor trips during the past two weeks, and now that I’m on sick leave, I doubt I’ll manage to climb any hills any time soon. But if my hills are reviews, then I might manage to tackle a few of them this upcoming week.

Commercial Break #78

Since my last Commercial Break I’ve gone through a huge emotional roller coaster and it hasn’t been nice. Though now that I’ve enjoyed my vacation for almost a week I feel like things are slowly getting better but I’m still an emotional wreck. Nothing seems to be helping either, books, movies, shows, not to mention, writing. But I’m hanging in there, trying to be strong and not think negative thoughts, especially considering what this week is going to be like for me.
