Book People Talk Movies

books.on.film2

This idea was borne of many a discussion with my bookish friends (whether it be co-workers, friends, or twitter acquaintances) about our favorite movies, why we love them so much, and why we can’t believe the other person hasn’t seen it yet! When you think about it, we take book recommendations from one another all the time – and really, film is just another way of telling a story. If I trust your book recommendations so quickly, what’s to say there isn’t an amazing film out there waiting for me to discover??

Here’s the basic gist of it: On the first & third Monday of every month, I’ll be sharing one of my favorite movies and why everyone else should set down everything they’re doing, and get to watching it! Some fun things I’ll include could be: how I found out about it, a fun gif from the film, a favorite quote, a trailer, and of course(!), how crazy the rest of you are for not having seen it yet! (Here’s an example: Book People Talk Movies: Amelie) [Scroll down for the entire archives!]

On the second & fourth Monday of every month, I want to hear about your favorite films! There are themes for the different months – maybe 80s films, or Holiday classics, etc. Just fill out the form below if you’re interested in participating! It will be on a first come, first serve basis – I will email everyone as soon as I have you officially set up for your guest post, and will do my best to close off submissions for certain months if they become full in advance.

Here’s hoping for an amazing movie recommendation filled year!!

  1. Awww, and I just started this month! It was fun! Hope you can get it back soon and that everything in your life isn’t super crazy, as that tends to happen from time to time. I will be checking back in!

  2. I hope this comes back soon. Books-to-film is sort of my yearly reading challenge — to read books with film adaptations. I can talk about them all day!

    1. I hope it does too! Once I can find the time/ability/headspace to regularly post normal things, I really want to bring this back. I was very overzealous in the beginning with the amount of time I thought I had to devote to the blog, and also how much time it actually takes to maintain said blog! Hahaha. 🙂
