Half of a yellow sun by Chimamanda Adichie. The movie seemed incomplete, had to recourse to the book. Tje book satiated my curiosity.

I used to make it a habit to read the book before watching it in the cinemas but because I was most likely let down after, I decided to do it the other way round. I watched Crazy Rich Asian back in August and have added it to my to-read list. Now I just need to find time to finish my other books so I can get to it.

Harru potter and the bfg made me read the book versions and the books didn't disappoint me they were more alluring than movies.

Chimamanda Adichie's Half of a yellow sun. after hearing so much about the book, I saw the movie first, i was less than impressed. so went to the book and I wasn't disappointed.

I love the Divergent series and after watching the first 2 movies decided to read the books. I fell in love with the books as well.
