Angy from Collector of Book Boyfriends tagged me on twitter for this fun post.
This tag is about movies based off of books.
My husband prefers I don’t read a book and then watch the movie right away because I’ve ruined a lot of movies with my constant, “That’s not how it happened in the book… it happened this way.”
10. Pride and Prejudice
About 5 years ago a friend brought over her dvd of this and we watched it together. Then a couple years ago I read it. I really want to watch it again.
9. The Notebook
I read this book and loved it. Then my friend convinced me to watch the movie because she loved the movie more than the book. I really enjoyed the movie but I’m partial to the book.
8. The Help
This is a rare moment where I liked the movie and the book equally. Well done!
7. Fight Club
Well, I know I’ve told this story before but Kim convinced me to watch Fight Club and after watching it I had to read the book. The book and the movie are very different. The basic story line is the same but lots of differences.
6. Paper towns
I recently read this book and now I think I’ll watch this with my teens to see what they think.
Another book I read but haven’t seen the movie. I really want to see it but I haven’t been able to find it. It seems like it would make a cute movie.
Like every other female about ten years ago I read the books. Then I went with my friends to see the movies. The first movie drove me nuts because of how different some things were but I had to distant myself from the book to be able to enjoy the movie. Movie Edward wasn’t who I pictured in my head for the ‘Book Edward.’
3. The Fault In Our Stars
Yep, I read the book and then a couple years later saw the movie. In the meantime I forgot a major part that happened in the book. Imagine my shock when I realized the part I forgot. *lol*
2. Fifty Shades of Grey
Of course, I read the books many times and then saw the movie this past February with my friend. It was weird to see it on the big screen. When I read this book 3 years ago that this would be on the big screen. Now, 2 more movies to go in the next couple years.
I listened to the audio of this and then watched the TV series. I’m so thankful I did it that way because the beginning of the book would have bored me to death had I not had the TV series to look forward. Now, I can’t wait for season 2 to start!
Can’t wait to see yours!
