November 15: Top Ten Book To Movie Adaptations
If there is one thing I love as much as books, it’s movies. When it comes to a movie adapted from a book, I usually love it or hate it, there is no inbetween. Here are ten movies/series I adore.
1. Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K. Rowling
Harry Potter will *always* be top of this particular list. I adore the movies almost as much as the books (with one or two exceptions): they are so magical!
2. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
As one of my favourite book series, I had high expectations for the movies, and they did not disappoint. Jennifer Lawrence was perfect!
3. Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
Another of my favourite series, I adore both the books and the movies: their characters and plots are just brilliant.
4. The Maze Runner by James Dashner
Despite not being overly keen on the writing style of the book, I enjoyed the plot and the movie was a very true adaptation of the novel.
5. Bridget Jones’s Diary by Helen Fielding
Whilst I’m not the biggest fan of the book, I absolutely love the movie(s): it’s such a fun, laughter-filled and relatable story.
6. The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
The book is my favourite standalone novel, and (thankfully) the film does it justice – I think it helps that Rachel McAdams is the lead.
7. The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks
Both the book and the movie are tear-jerkers, and I love them both equally: the characters were cast just perfectly.
8. Marley & Me by John Grogan
The only non-fiction on this list, starring chaotic canine Marley, the book is funny, real and emotional, and the film is no different.
9. Angels and Demons by Dan Brown
My favourite of the Dan Brown books/movies, I love the concept of this one. It is thrilling and pure edge of your seat entertainment.
10. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis
A childhood favourite, I enjoyed The Chronicles of Narnia, but I actually connected with the movies to an even greater extent. The early films were expertly cast and beautifully adapted.
