Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Book-to-Movie Adaptations...

…Of Books I Have Read


The Hunger Games
I can’t believe it’s about to be over! This makes me so sad… but mostly because we won’t have anymore press interviews of Jennifer, Josh, and Liam together. They’re seriously the best.


Something Borrowed
UGH. This movie thrills me and kills me at the same time. I LOVE IT. This scene is one that kills me.


The Fault in Our Stars
All. The. Tears.


Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist
This is one of those rare “I saw the movie before reading the book” times but it worked out because I loved both! A lot!


If I Stay
I don’t know what to tell you except that this movie was perfection to me. Just got everything right as far as an adaptation went. And ADAM. *dreamy sigh*


Honorable Mentions to…
Divergent (Not Insurgent)
He’s Just Not That Into You


…Of Books I’ve Yet to Read

Gone with the Wind
I’ve promised myself I’ll read this one day, but until then, the movie will do.


Pride & Prejudice
SO GOOD. Amirite?!


High Fidelity
My love for John Cusack began with this movie, even though it wasn’t my fist John Cusack movie to watch. I watched this as a young 20 something and it really made an impression on me. I just remember thinking how this must be what adult relationships are like. Ha!


Interview with a Vampire
DUDE. Was there ever a more sexy vampire than Brad Pitt in this movie?! He certainly made me think womanly thoughts as a teen. lol Thanks, Brad!


Into the Wild
This movie is just beauuuuutifully shot across an America people don’t see often. The music was just unbelievable too, performed by Eddie Vedder, singer of Pearl Jam. This scene and quote have always stayed with me.


Honorable Mentions to…
Sense & Sensibility
The Giver
The Book Thief

    I love Jennifer Lawrence. And I love the Hunger Games movies. I am excited for the list final installment, but like you, sad too. The Fault in Our Stars–soo good! Both the book and movie. I couldn’t bring myself to watch If I Stay. Maybe someday. I really liked the book, but I think the lackluster reviews of the movie kind of turned me off of it. I need to read High Fidelity. I liked the movie quite a bit. Interview the Vampire is a good movie–and I enjoyed the book.

    Pride and Prejudice is one of my favorite books and I love the movies. The BBC miniseries and the shorter movie.

    This is such a fun topic.

    Oh you loved Something Borrowed too??? I feel like no one liked that movie and I loved it. I would rewatch it all the time when it was on HBO!! I also agree with Hunger Games, TFIOS. I actually never read Nick and Norah but LOVE the movie. Great list!

      I LOVE SOMETHING BORROWED! I know there’s a lot of people who don’t, but I do and I’m glad you do! I rewatch it allll the time too. Nick and Norah and such a quick fun read. Definitely recommend it.

    great list! I actually haven’t seen Gone With The Wind or Pride & Prejudice yet because I keep telling myself I’ll read the books first. I’m currently reading Pride & Prejudice so that’s a step in the right direction! :D

    I still need to watch Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist! I loved the TFIOS movie and I’m really excited about the last Hunger Games movie, but also kind of sad that it’s going to be over :(

    Pride and Prejudice will forever be my favorite movie. I couldn’t tell you how many times I’ve watched it! I also really liked The Fault in Our Stars, they did a good job with it, and I still need to watch If I Stay!
