Blog Hop- Movie and Book Tie-Ins

Friday, July 28, 2017

This blog hop is hosted by Coffee Addicted Writer.

This weeks question:
Do you read tie-in novels to movies or television series? If so which ones?

My Answer:
I've watched some of the movies for books that I've read. If i watch the movie first I don't normally read the books. 
If we're talking about when books are written based off a movie or TV show, (such as the Buffy and Angel books our host mentioned) not really? I mean... does FanFiction count? If it does, I read a TON of Harry Potter FanFic, and I wish there was better X-Men Evolution FanFic, and more Darkest Powers FanFic. 

Reading back over this, I sounds like the worlds biggest nerd. 
Sorry not sorry!!!


  1. I think FanFic counts though it's not official. I mean that's all published movie or tv tie-ins really are - sanctioned fan fiction.

    1. Oh good! I'm okay with not being official. Sometimes it's more fun that way!
      Thanks for dropping by!

  2. I only read occasional tie-ins, more from a collector's POV. I generally don't find them that well written. Though, of course, there are a few exceptions.

  3. I feel like fan fiction could count, IF the characters are written correctly. (Some authors are good at staying true to the character, others go WAY off.) I don't even mean "it all must be canon". Just as long as the characters behave in a way that they might in universe.
    I actually gave up on fanfic years ago because it's so hard to weed out ALL the bad/mediocre. (There are some good ones out there though.)

  4. I need to read more Harry Potter fanfiction. I haven't gotten into it too much. And I do read a lot of books that movies are based off of, sometimes I read the books first, sometimes after.
