Top Ten Favorite Movie Adaptations of Books

toptentuesday2

Happy Top Ten Tuesday (the feature that has recently been voted my most popular type of blog post)! This week we’re all supposed to be stepping out of the bookish world by listing our favorite movies or television shows, but I decided to stay in the literary world by listing my favorite movies based on books. Let me know what yours are in the comments! Also don’t judge me too harshly. Remember the word favorite doesn’t always equal the word best (cough cough … I’m looking at you Twilight.

  1. I’ve stepped away from tv and movies for so long that I need some new recommendations. Thanks for sharing these. I’m taking notes today. And you have a great list!

    And, since I’m not really in a position to recommend tv or movies, I decided to venture off on my own this week and post about mood-boosting books: Be-Happy Books.

    • Oh wow. Have you read the books? I feel like that is way more important than watching the movies. Although I know there are definitely people out there that have worked to avoid the whole series in general.

  2. I’m kind of surprised that you didn’t have Much Ado About Nothing – but I love all the choices you do have.

  4. I will never hate on Twilight. That fandom brought some of my best friends and soul mates into my life, so it would definitely be on the top of my list too.

    And yes yes yes re: Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Gatsby.

    My other favourites would have to be The Hunger Games, Water for Elephants, Warm Bodies, Silver Linings Playbook, Something Borrowed and On the Road.
