My last adventure today, I promise!
I think this challenge looks like a lot of fun. Plus, it gives me an excuse to watch movies and read books. I can't lose!

I'm thinking of reading/watching the following books/movies:
1. Jane Eyre (also reading for Classics Bookclub)
2. Oliver Twist
4. Lord of the Flies
5. The Hound of the Baskervilles
The list may change or expand, but I think this is a good start.
Here are my answers to the MeMe questions:
1. Are you more likely to see a movie if it’s based on a book?
I would say no. However, I will seek out movies if they are based on books I like.
2. Do you prefer to read the book first or see the movie first?
Definitely read the book. I like having my own ideas in my head before I see the movie.
3. List one movie that was better than the book it’s based on, and one book that is better than the movie.
No one hate me, but I like the Harry Potter movies better than the books. I find them more entertaining.
Most books are better than the movies for me, but off the top of my head I would say the book Wuthering Heights is better than any of the movie versions I've seen. The movies try to soften the book into a romance when it's really a book about crazy and screwed-up characters that are hard to like. The book is disturbing, and I love it. The movies aren't disturbing enough.
4. In your opinion, what film is the most accurate representation of the book?
I think the the BBC miniseries of Pride and Prejudice is a very accurate representation of the book. Because it is so long, most of the major plot elements and details still remain. I think the characters are very similar to the win Austen portrays them in the book as well.
