List of books (adapted into movies) that Sinekdoks’ going to read along 2015 in The new Adapted series.
Earlier this year, I decided to change the format of a special feature in Sinekdoks, The Adapted, in which I talk about books adapted into movies. Last year, the only entry of this feature was Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl to celebrate its cinematic release and that time I thought that I could read a book every month. This year, I had a different idea—not completely deviating though. “Same rules apply,” James McAvoy said in Filth, but I decided to alter it a bit to give me more time to breath.
NOW, this is not a monthly project anymore. I decided to make it a BIMONTHLY project. In addition, I will set a list of books I will read along year for this project (it will be like Blindspot Series, but it’s about books adapted into movies). So, there will be 6 obliged book I must read this year as a consequence.
So, here’s the list of The 2015 Adapted project by Sinekdoks:
01. John Ajvide Lindqvis’s Let The Right One In
