HUSH Podcast #103 – A Book That Became a Movie

A Book That Became a Movie

Show Notes

In this episode, we talk about the appeal of reading books which also have been adapted for film or television. We ask “Should you read the book before you see the movie?” and “Did the movie version do the book justice?” Tierney Kirtdoll, movie watcher and book reader, shares her recommendations and book/movie comparisons to help you find the perfect pick for the “A Book that is a Movie” square on your Reading Bingo card. HUSH co-hosts Thad Hartman, Miranda Ericsson, and Lissa Staley share their recommendations and plans for completing the Reading Bingo cover-all challenge.
