Page to Screen: Will Switching Mediums Help Failed Adaptations?

Page to Screen is a new original feature I’m experimenting with where I talk about film adaptations of YA books Will Switching Mediums Help Two Failed Adaptations?

Page to Screen: Better Than The Book

Page to Screen is a new original feature I’m experimenting with where I talk about film adaptations of YA books Do your favourite actors influence your viewing choices?
