Follow Friday is a blog hop Hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read
Q: Jumping Genres: Ever pick up a book from a genre you usually don’t like and LOVE it? Tell us about it and why you picked it up in the first place.
There is a book I read because I loved the movie: Freedom Writers. I don’t usually read novels like that, but I was so curious and impatient to know more about it. So the book is The Freedom Writers Diary: How a Teacher and 150 Teens Used Writing to Change Themselves and the World Around Them (yeah long title). It was a really beautiful read, also really sad, but I loved it!

Hopping through. I loved Freedom Writer’s Diary too. The movie was enjoyable but of course not as good.
I haven’t read Freedom Writer’s Diary but just might have to check it out.
That was a spectacular movie but I haven’t read the book. There are other books that I’ve read because of the movie like The Hunt for Red October and Jurassic Park.
Here’s my Follow Friday.
I’m also having a Giveaway, so come on by and enter.

Hey I haven’t had the chance to watch the movie but I read the book and I really enjoyed it.
I haven’t seen the movie nor read the book. The movie looks good though. 🙂
Hm… I still want to watch that movie. Have to see if Netflix has it. 🙂
That’s a huge title! I have seen the movie and I liked the story, but I’m not sure if I’d read the book. I’m glad that you liked it though!
Interesting pick! I remember that movie way back when but I never saw it.
I absolutely love your banner– it’s gorgeous!

Thanks for stopping by my FF! Old follower.
Hm..dunno really. I guess I never thought I’d like Jane Eyre as much as I did as those old books are just that old and stuffy
Je n’ai jamais vu ce film ni lu ce roman. Mais je suis tres heureuse de trouver ce “blog” parce que je suis un prof de francais americain et je peux pratiquer un peu en francais pendant que je decouvre beaucoup de bons romans! Merci! Voici mon “feature and follow”: http://www.mysticbooklover.blogspot.com/2012/07/feature-and-follow-friday.html
Oh C’est gentil! Ne fais pas attention à toutes mes fautes en Anglais, je suis sure qu’il doit y en avoir quelques unes. Ca me permet d’évoluer un peu à chaque fois en écrivant mes avis.
Thanks for stopping by. Have not read this book but glad you liked it
Sometimes movies make me want to read the books as well. 🙂
