The Books of Oscars 2018

Roll out the red carpet, put on your best outfit and pop the champagne because it’s Oscars Weekend!

I’m pretty excited about this year’s nominees because of the diverse film genres and titles that you wouldn’t normally see making it to such ceremonies. Of course, my focus is always on book-to-film adaptations and I’m not disappointed at the ones that became blockbuster hits, and have been in the spotlight at film festivals and award shows this year.

The Books of Oscars 2017

It’s Oscars Weekend! Whether you tune into this awards night religiously every year or simply see the highlights on the internet the next morning, it’s THE biggest event of the year in the movie industry. Other than seeing the A-listers, what they are wearing and of course, the opening monologue, what I’m usually most excited about is to see which movie adaptations of books made the cut.

For the 89th Academy Awards, 5 movies out of the 9 nominatees for Best Picture are adapted screenplays. You know what they say…never judge a book by its movie but sometimes, they actually get it right.

Book Depository: Where Have You Been All My Life?

It was somewhere in mid-October. I was browsing pictures on Instagram when suddenly, someone showed off these beautiful and colourful books. They caught my attention immediately and made me wonder why I haven’t seen them at my bookstore before. When I read the description, it turns out that the books were in fact The Mortal Instruments series, UK edition. I’ve been wanting to buy the series but was not fond of the book covers. I was so in love with the UK edition that I had to buy all six books immediately. The only online bookstore that sold them was The Book Depository.
