Who said reading wasn’t cool? Well whoever it was, there’s definitely nothing sexier than seeing some of the hottest celebrities geeking out with some of the best books around. It just goes to show that everyone’s at it; reading is the new ‘cool’

How awesome is this? Move over chai latte I’m having a nice, cold glass of ‘library’ wine!
Even though I much prefer a good old-fashioned book to an on-screen adaptation, I do like venturing out to the cinema once in a while. I reckon I’ve seen most of the great page to screen adaptations in my time and I’m often surprised at how much I’ve actually enjoyed them. This week I went down to Leavesden Studios to visit the place they filmed the Harry Potter series, and absolutely loved it. Growing up, the Harry Potter books were my go to reads, I was obsessed with them and the films were just as magical. So with those films in mind, here is a list of the page to screen adaptations I’m anticipating the most this year:

Catching Fire – Suzanne Collins (cinema release November 2013)
The Great Gatsby – F. Scott Fitzgerald (cinema release May 2013)
Hansel and Gretal – The Brothers Grimm (cinema release February 2013)
The Host – Stephenie Meyer (cinema release March 2013)
Jack and the Beanstalk – Joseph Jacobs (cinema release March 2013)

I’ve always loved Beatrix Potter books, ever since my parents read them to me when i was a child. I came across this little treasure in the Manchester Museum shop of all places … A hieroglyph copy of Little Peter Rabbit!
