Book vs Movie: The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas: What are your bets?

Hi dear friends!

Today I wanted to write something different as there is all a fuss about The Hate U Give being made into a movie!

Honestly I am really excited too!

I loved The Hate U Give and think it’s a powerful book that everyone should read.

If you are interested you can read my review below (click on the graphic).

But when books are made into movies, it’s always a “hit or miss” so I was wondering what are the odds for this one ….

If you want to play with me I will give you some clues to work with 😀

First clue is an interview of Angie Thomas on what it feels to be behind the scene, on set! Man I would love being on set one day just to experience the rush!


Second clue is the official book trailer

Pfew! This trailer gave me thrills!

I predict as good as the book if not more! Daring? Maybe but meet me when you’ll have seen it 😉

Now what do you think? As good? More? Less?

Thanks for reading!

  1. Jeez.. when I first watched the trailer i got goosebumps.. It’s hard not to have and it made me buy the physical copy of the book. But i’m embarrassed to say, i still haven’t gotten round to read it.
    Yep shame on me. 🙂

  2. I am definitely rooting for this movie and can’t wait to see it. I also think that this would be a pretty good adaptation 🙂

      Same here Charvi!!!! Let’s hope it meets our expectations 😉

  5. I’m in the middle of reading the book and I HOPE the movie is good! I’m more excited for more black/POC YA on my big screen, so even if it’s not very good, at least there’s that to be proud of! 🙂 Plus I LOVEEE Amandla Stenberg And will pretty much watch anything with them in it lol.

      yes that’s usually my opinion

  7. I feel like this book has the potential to work really well as a movie. So I think I’m with you on this one. I guess we’ll find out!

      And then we’ll chat about the movie Nicole 😉

  8. I have the book on my wish list but never got around to getting it. Better hurry now that the movie is being made! I like reading books before the films.

      Me too Laura! Not the other way. Happy reading then.

  9. I haven’t read this one, but hope the movie does it justice, as there is nothing worse than TV or a movie destroying a book.
