Book Vs Movie

The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants”

The 2001 YA Classic Novel Vs. the Beloved 2005 Movie




We needed a break here from the intense and decided to dip back into the YA novel waters with the lovely first installment (of five!) of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants from author Ann Brashares and what a delight it is!

In this episode, the Margos talk about the main plot points in the book with the characters of Lena Kaligaris, Tibby Rollins, Bridget Creeland and Carmen Lowell and their unique friendship. It’s such a sweet, loving tale--we can’t stop gushing about it!

What’s not to love about this story, really? It has strong female characters, an interesting premise, summer vacation locales, real family issues and a great message about keeping your friends close and embracing every wonderful opportunity that comes your way.

We compare all of this with the 2005 film directed by Ken Kwapis and stars Amber Tamblyn, Alexis Bledel, America Ferrera, and Blake Lively.

So between the novel and the movie--which did we like better? Click the link at the bottom to find out.

This episode is once again sponsored by Penguin Random House!

All for One  (Book three of the “Alex & Eliza Trilogy”) by Melissa De La Cruz

  1. New York, New York.

As a young nation begins to take shape, Alexander Hamilton and Elizabeth Schuyler are on top of the world. They're the toast of the town, keeping New York City buzzing with tales of their lavish parties, of Eliza's legendary wit, and of Alex's brilliant legal mind.

But new additions to Alex & Eliza's little family mean change is afoot in the Hamilton household. When they agree to take in an orphaned teenage girl along with Eliza's oldest brother, John Schuyler, Eliza can't help but attempt a match. It's not long before sparks start to fly . . . if only Eliza can keep herself from interfering too much in the course of true love. After all, she and Alex have an arrival of their own to plan for, though Alex's latest case brings a perilous threat that may destroy everything.

Book Vs. Movie Podcast

The Stephen King Bonus Ep

With Deana Marie (Twisted Philly)

Pet Sematary (Original & Remake)

 

It’s time for another Stephen King Bonus ep and Margo D. is joined by Deana Marie of the Twisted Philly podcast to talk about the remake of Pet Sematary directed by Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer (Starry Eyes) and comparing it to the 1989 movie directed by Mary Lambert.

Plus, we delve into the 1983 novel that was inspired by author King’s stay at a residence in Maine for a year that was located by a busy roadway. In real life, his daughter’s cat was run over by a truck and his son was almost struck down by one as well.

King took these events and created the creepy story of the Creed family who moves to Ludlow, Maine to escape the city life. Instead of finding tranquility they discover their home is located near a pet cemetery that has some supernatural powers.

So between the book and two films--what do we think of Pet Semetary? Click on the link below.
