    Hiya I'm not really a book person but I've recently started to try reading again and I'm currently reading 2 books : the perks of being a wallflower and a game of thrones. Although I've watched both the game of thrones series and the perks films I'm already seeing differences. But is it better to watch the film/show then read the book or the other way around? I just find it easier to visualize characters when I've seen them in action.

    I much prefer to read the book before watching the film or TV series :yep: . I tried it the other way round once - I couldn't take the book seriously since I was like ''That didn't happen in the film...'' and hated it!

    I like reading the book first. I like the way I imagine the characters waaay better than the movie version.

    Usually, I NEVER understand a film unless I read the book first - the plot comes alive in a novel and is much more entertaining than the film itself. Tendencies of a bookworm, you see.

    Film.


    People still read books? *scoff* Its 2015 people!

    Im joking, obviously. I just find the films to hit me more. Its like when I watch a scary film, my heart rate increases and I jump (sometimes.... okay all the time)

    With a scary book I would never do that. Because its a book. You can't be scared of a book.
