Feature and Follow Friday!! (A day early)

What are your favorite books that have been made into a movie?

I have several answers for this question.

1. The Fault in Our Stars was a great movie and an even better book! I love the soundtrack, and the acting was amazing. I love how the movie stayed so true to the book! 

2. My Sister's Keeper- Jodi Piccoult: This was a good movie and a really great book, but one thing really irked me: The movie directors completely changed the plot and made it WAY too predictable!! In the book, the ending is completely unexpected, which is a big reason why I love this book. But in the movie, the ending is exactly what I was expecting. They didn't stay true to the book at all! I'd give it a 4 stars out of 5 rating.

3. The first book in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series: great book and good movie! I especially liked the soundtrack. The movie wasn't as dramatic as the book, but then again, the book had a lot more room than the movie did...


  1. Hopping through. I still haven't seen TFIOS. I keep waiting for a time when I'm in the mood to cry.

  2. Yeah, I didn't enjoy the movie version of My Sister's Keeper as much as I enjoyed the book. I thought maybe it was because I knew where the story was going? But it's possible, as you said, that it was just way too predictable. I read only half of The Fault in Our Stars before I saw the movie and that was an interesting experience. I had the fun experience of seeing a book I loved made into a movie but I had no idea how it would end!

  3. Haven't seen any of these choices. There are many that I could name. Cormac McCathy's No Country For Old Men, Paul Gallico's The Poseidon Adventure (the first movie), and James Dickey's Deliverance are a few that immediately come to mind. I also liked the most recent version of The Great Gatsby--the one with Leonardo Dicaprio and the book was excellent.
