My Favorite.. Book Movie Adaption



My Favorite.. is a weekly meme hosted by Maureen’s Books. In this meme we share every week something we love with each other. Because let’s face it.. The world can be a dark place and it’s time to share something positive. For more info: My Favorite Meme.

I’m one of those people who is always the last to know about a great book that is being filmed. I didn’t used to be like that. I read Harry Potter and Twilight when it wasn’t popular yet.. but somehow I lost that touch. Nowadays I see a new movie poster and realize it’s a book originally. I then race to the nearest bookstore to grab a copy of the book, or I’ll plan to buy the book ASAP and then go see the movie. Well.. That doesn’t really work all that well when you live a busy life.

But I did see a view book movie adaptions. Most of the time the movie is good, but the book is always better. I love all the Harry Potter movies, but the books are definitely better. My favorite Book Movie Adaption has to be ‘The Notebook’ by Nicholas Sparks. The book is good and I loved reading it. But that movie… I can’t watch that movie without feeling like my heart is breaking over and over again. It’s such a good and beautiful movie. And those actors are perfect for the role they play.

I definitely need to see that movie again someday soon. 

Which Book Movie Adaption is your favorite? And why?

  1. I'm the same way with movies and books now. I rarely actually watch the movies anymore, but I'll see a movie trailer or poster and then try to find the book.

    1. I'm glad I'm not the only one. I hope I can change it back to how it was before.. I loved falling in love with a book and then daydreaming about how the movie would go!
      Thanks for visiting and joining Shannon!

  2. I agree that the Harry Potter books are much better than the movies, but I did think the first movie was a good adaption of the book and wonderful for creating the image of the wizarding world.

    I haven't seen The Notebook in years. I remember enjoying the movie and the book.

    1. Definitely! The first movie was really good. And I really loved the other Harry Potter movies too.. but the books are just so good the movie can't be as good to my opinion!

  3. I don't get a lot of chances to see movies that aren't kid-friendly anymore, and I do miss going to the theater to see something I've already fallen in love with as a book.

    My all-time favorite movie adaptation is Alfred Hitchcock's 1940 production of Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier.

    1. I totally understand. There was a time I was able to go to the theater almost every week. It's been months now!
      I haven't seen that movie but it sounds like a good one.
      Thanks for stopping by!

  4. I'm the same way about getting books when they are being made into movies. But terrible about actually watching the movie. So many of the movies don't do the book justice.

    1. So true. Have you read the Mortal Instrument series by Cassandra Clare? I really loved those books. But the movie really wasn't very good, and that's putting it nicely I think.
