Gone With the Wind and The Help
Safe Haven! ? One of my favorite book to movie. Follows almost everything on the dot. And the twist is amazing to read and watch.
The book thief!
Like books so much more than the movies.
I thought 50 Shades of Grey movies was a pretty good match to the books.
The Perks of Being A Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. It’s my favorite book to screen adaptation.
Blade Runner was written as Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, also I am Legend.
Me Before You
Omg…yes. I ugly cried for both!
Me Before you
The Fault in Our Stars
The Kite Runner
I had a difficult time reading the book & watching the movie – The Kite Runner.
Just read/listened to then watched High Rise. Definitely interesting. Would recommend.
So many adaptations are poorly made, I’d recommend The Giver, The Green Mile, The Fault In Our Stars, The Godfather, The Help, The World According To Garp, Water For Elephants, To Kill A Mockingbird, and I’ve read it in the comments – The Book Thief, Shawshank Redemption. I didn’t read The Wizard of Oz, love the movie.

Man called ove
The English Patient – the movie is very different so you get a new experience of the story (both are very good). Out of Africa is another. Blixen/Dineson’s writing is superb. One of the best opening paragraphs ever and they open the movie with it too, it’s that good 🙂
Book Thief.. I’ve actually never read the book but the movie was wonderful
Legends of the Fall.
I never read this book but loved the movie.
I have no idea but a friend is raving about Crazy Rich Asians and I’m going to buy that before I go see it
Dog day afternoon
IT, by Stephen King. Then the movies, Chapter 1 and Chapter 2 next year.

Definitely The Help
