Monday Musings: Books to Movies

Two big movies that have recently premiered are Something Borrowed and Water For Elephants. Have you seen either? (And if so, what did you think?)

I think it’s true that “the movie is never as good as the book.” With books, it’s so much more fun to imagine it YOUR way! But, here are a few movie adaptations that I think did a pretty amazing job (and that I find myself watching again and again). What are your favorite book-to-film adaptations?

Oh, and happy Monday!

  1. Oh Pride & Prejudice FER SURE…I’m pretty sure I *own* no less than three different versions of that movie and the book…I think that says something about me, but I’m not really sure what…hopeless romantic or…just kinda hopeless??? Either way, I’m a big fan of books and movies…so if we can make my favorite books into movies, you know I will go see it every time! (c:

  2. My favorite recent adaptation was No Country For Old Men. I thought the Coens did a remarkable job capturing the bleak, subtle beauty of Cormac McCarthy’s words.

    The Namesake is a great book – I didn’t realize it had been made into a movie.

  3. Pride and Prejudice made me have a crush on Matthew macfadyen, and notebook made me cry. The others are yet to bee watched, thanks for this post, I love your reccomendations xoxo
