Top Ten Tuesday- Books to Films that I love!

Top Ten Tuesday Page to Screen Adaptations



Welcome back! Today I will do the weekly meme called Top Ten Tuesdays. This meme is hosted by Jana at thatartsyreadergirl. Our topic for this week is a freebie dealing with Page to Screen Adaptations. I decided to to 10 books they have adapted which that I loved.

1- To All the Boy’s I’ve Loved Before

Topping the list this week is this rom com I just adored. I read the first book, and I thought the movie was a perfect adaption. Sure, it missed some key topics but overall it pleased me. I can't wait for the second one!

2- The Hunger Games series

I read The Huger Games and it was my introduction to YA Dystopian. These films were fantastic, and I felt it pleased any fan if you have read the books or not. Were they perfect? Not really as key elements were missing, but the premise was there.

3- Pride and Prejudice (2005)

This is a perfect adaptation of the Jane Austen classic. I love  this and the period drama style. I watched this when I was in my 20s and fell in love.

4-  The Perks of Being A Wallflower

I read this book the summer of 8th grade going into high school. I watched the film, and I loved it so much. I felt it hit the key elements and encouraged people to read the book if they didn't already.

5-  Little Women ( 1994)

I watched this when I was my 20s as well. I don't know why I took so long to watch this movie but wow do I love it. I loved the movie because it stayed close to the original source material.  Winona Ryder as Jo I think  has the perfect amount of sass and sweetness.

6-  Love Simon

Oh wow do I love this movie. I finished the novel about a week before I saw the movie. This movie had some changes and I think that they improved the plot for the movie. They needed the edits as the movie went in a new direction.

7-  The Fault in Our Stars

Can we all appreciate this adaptation? I read this book and I was sobbing and almost threw the book across the room when I finished. This is a great adaptation because it hits all the points in the book.

8- The Gurnsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

Another Netflix adaptation! I had read this book after watching the film and I want to re-watch it now that I have finished the book.The second viewing I might have finished it or been in the middle of the novel.   I loved it even though there were edits because of the direction the movie took.

9-  Crazy Rich Asians

I was so into this film! The first time I saw it I had not read the book. By the time I watched it a second time I was in the middle of the book, or had maybe already finished this book. This is how you adapt a book to a film in my opinion. I know that they made some changes, and that Charlie Wu should have been used more, but I am so here for Crazy Rich Asians both the book and the movie.

10- Harry Potter  and the Sorcerer's Stone 

I think I have said on the blog here that I was not into Harry Potter as  kid. I've seen all the films and love them all. I only put the first on there as it is the only book I've read.

  1. Do you think you'll read the rest of the Harry Potter books sometime? I found that the adaptations got better and better the further you went into the films.

    My TTT.

    1. Maybe? I was more captured by Twilight than I was by Harry Potter.

  2. The Hunger Games movies weren't flawless, but they are definitely in the "good adaptations" category.

  3. I watched To All the Boys I've Loved Before and thought it was so cute! I haven't read the book, though, so I guess I can't quite compare it, haha. The 2005 Pride and Prejudice is fantastic, and Crazy Rich Asians was also so good! The visuals were stunning.

    1. I could not agree more about Crazy Rich Asians. P&P will always be one of my faves. To All The Boys I've Loved Before was so cute and so much fun.

  4. I like the 2005 P&P too. And To All Boys was a great adaptation!

    I've been thinking of checking Guernsey Literary out on netflix.

  5. I think I actually preferred the Crazy Rich Asians movie to the book - just a little bit anyway! :)
