Last week I took myself on a dinner and a movie date and I ended up going to the movies to see “Call Me by Your Name”, and it was one of the most beautiful movies I’ve seen in a long time! I bawled my eyes out and ended up crying for hours afterward.
I love it when movies can have such an emotional impact, and whenever I see the words “based on the novel by ….” then I immediately want to find out if the book is better, which it usually is.
So as soon as my eyes were able to do anything other than weeping, I got on BookDepository and ordered myself a copy of Call Me by Your Name by André Aciman.
I can’t wait to dive into it and give you guys a review and book to movie comparison.
I fell in love with the movie, so if the book is even better than we are looking at a potential long-term literary relationship!

Books are always better than it’s movie adaptation.
There is always the exception to the rule 😜
I just found out about this movie right before it left theaters in my area. I just got the book as well, but I don’t know when I’ll start it as I’ve got a lot of other books to read first(Isn’t that always the case though?) I still want to see the film.
That sure is the case here too 🙈Too many books, too little time! But I do highly recommend the movie! It was fantastic 💛
