Top Ten Tuesday – Freebie Week!

This weeks’ Top Ten Tuesday is a freebie week!

I’ve decided to pick a previous TTT topic – Top Book to Movie Adaptations!

1. To Kill a Mockingbird – This is one of my all-time favorite books AND one of my favorite movies. I think they did such a great job with the casting of this film; I can watch this movie over and over.

2. Pride & Prejudice – Confession: I am a total sucker for all things P&P! I enjoy most adaptations of this novel. I just really enjoy the story and characters!

3. Little Women – I absolutely adore the film version with Winona Rider and Christian Bale (any other Christian Bale lovers out there?) I like to watch this at least every other winter!

4. Harry Potter – Okay, of course I’m putting this on the list. I mean, come on!

5. Stephen King Adaptations – I’m cheating here but there are SO MANY great film adaptations of King novels. I’m thinking particularly of Stand By Me, Carrie, and The Shining, just to name a few!

Honorable mention to Gone Baby Gone/Mystic River/Shutter Island – film adaptations of Dennis LeHane books tend to be pretty darn good, in my opinion!

You’re turn! What are your favorite adaptations?

  1. For me, ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ with Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper as well as ‘The Reader’ with Kate Winslet both come readily to mind as adaptations I actually preferred over the book. While not better than the book, I’d agree that, along with ‘Pride and Prejudice,’ I think Joe Walsh did an excellent job of capturing the feel of ‘Atonement’ (as well as you can capture a novel so anchored in the protagonists thoughts). And I LOVE ‘Jurassic Park’ and ‘The Lost World’ as adaptations. And of course Harry Potter!
