What’s your favorite book-to-movie?
Orlando by Virginia Woolf
Fault in our stars and the choice
To Kill a Mockingbird, A Time to Kill, The Help.
The DaVinci Code, or The Ya-Ya Sisterhood.
The help for me too , pet Semetary and IT
The Princess Bride
The Green Mile.
Love, Simon. Ready Player One. Harry Potter. And I actually enjoyed Atonement the movie more than the book.
So many – I’m a sucker for an adaptation! The Help, Harry Potter, Twilight (guiltiest pleasure), Something Borrowed
A Walk to Remember, The Notebook
Love all of these!!!! Especially Something Borrowed. I was so sad that the second book-to-movie fell through!
Hunger Games, Harry Potter, & LOTR for sure.
Hunger Games was great!
On the reverse, My Sister’s Keeper was the worst adaptation ever! They ruined the story! I always hear Jodi speak about being lied to and cut out of the process for it!
My mom watched the movie, I read the book. Our discussion was quite interesting, since they totally messed up the ending in the movie. Jodi was pissed.
The Notebook is my favorite. I also lived the Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, and Twilight series.
The Grapes of Wrath Salem’s Lot A Clockwork Orange
The Hunger Games, The Fault In Our Stars
The choice ?
I thought The Help was a pretty good movie. And to this day I still love Christmas With the Kranks which was based on Grisham’s Skipping Christmas which was not funny at all!
All of Harry Potter.
I actually liked the movie way better then the book… that never happens!
@Heather me too! The only movie I’ve ever liked more than the book!
The Devil Wears Prada!!!!!
Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants!
I am writing my current novel while listening to the soundtrack from Sisterhood ?
I’m really going back here but The Deep End of the Ocean, First Wives Club, Holes
Lord of the Rings
Me Before You is one of my favorites.
Yes! They did a great job with that movie!
Perks of being a wallflower
Finally watched the movie for the first time yesterday and I loved it just as much as the book!
To Kill a Mockingbird
Rosemary’s Baby, cause I’m weird :p
I was very excited to see it in the theater-didn’t disappoint! That was in 1968!
The first Harry Potter movie
The Green Mile
The Notebook…I actually prefer the movie!! ? ?
I can’t bring myself to watch The Notebook. I worry I’ll sob the entire movie.
My sister got a migraine from sobbing so much watching that movie. lol
Flowers For Algernon
The Devel Wears Prada – LOVE
OK. I worked at Condé Nast as a very young person. I replaced Vera Wang. I wasn’t cool, I was just paying for school, I worked for Polly Mellen. I was fifteen. I called photographers and stylists. When my girls wanted to watch that movie, I would run out of the room.
GREAT movie. I agree.
Loved the book. The movie was a let down.
I can’t think of one I would say is my favorite but one that sticks out was ‘The Time Travelers Wife’ because it was the rare one that I found to be better than the book.
Such a beautiful movie.
I can’t really think of a favorite, because the movies just never seem to measure up.
I will say, however, that I did love the recent Hallmark TV showing of Mary Alice Monroe’s The Beach House (but hadn’t read the book, so can’t compare it).
The Help and Water for Elephants
The Light Between Oceans. It stayed true to this wonderful book.
One For The Money are the Help
LOTR. Harry Potter.
The Help 🙂 ?pie and all LOL!!!
Pretty much all of Nicholas Sparks books to movie, especially The Notebook
Prince of Tides
It is not often I enjoy a movie that is based off of a book, but I loved Wonder as a movie just as much as I loved the book! ?
The Martian, Desiree, To Kill a Mockingbird and tons of others but these pop into this ol ‘ brain immediately.
Agree with “The Martian.” Also the CS Forester Hornblower series made into the (sadly incomplete) miniseries starring Ioan Gruffud.
The Help is one of those rare movies that I thought did better than the book. Only because the movie gave more of a conclusion whereas the book just kind of left a lot of questions hanging.
Also, great actors in that movie.
Not a movie, but I’m reading the Outlander series, then going back and watching a season as I finish a book. I just finished book 3. There are so many books that have been turned into a series or miniseries–I really want to read Big Little Lies next.
Where the Heart Is by Billie Letts. One of my all-time favorite movies.
The Glass Castle
Loved the book.
To Kill a Mockingbird. This was one of the best movies ever made from a book-perfect!
To Kill A Mockingbird and Nicholas Sparks movies.
Fight Club and Trainspotting
The light between oceans!
A Beautiful Mind
The Thornbirds, Winds of War, War and Remembrance, and Fried Green Tomatoes. The casting was absolutely perfect in The Thornbirds. The movie truly made the book come to life perfectly. By far the BEST adaptation of a book I have ever seen.
The notebook. i prefer the ending in the movie than the book
The Mountain Between Us! ♥️
All The Presidents Men
The Godfather 1
Gone With The Wind
They did a good job on ‘The Girl on the Train’.
The Book Thief and The Martian.
Out of Africa
