Hello fellow bookworms! It’s Tuesday and that means it is time for another Top Ten Tuesday post!
What is TTT? TTT is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. Check out their blog for more info and to see upcoming themes.
This week’s theme is…
November 15: Movie Freebie — top ten all time favorite movies, top ten foreign films, top ten rom-coms, top ten 90’s movies, top ten action flicks, top ten tear-jerkers, top ten movies your favorite actor/actress is in, top ten movies with PoC leads, etc. etc.)
I decided to share a few of my favorite movie adaptations…
» Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen ⇒ Pride & Prejudice (2005)
I don’t think I am alone in my love for this movie. It was just so beautifully done. If you take one movie recommendation from this list, make it this one.
» Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë ⇒ Wuthering Heights (TV Mini-Series 2009)
I know this is technically not a movie, but rather a TV mini-series, but I just loved this adaptation of Wuthering Heights. If you are a WH fan and have never seen this version, I encourage you to watch it. I don’t think you will be disappointed.
» Little Women by Louisa May Alcott ⇒ Little Women (1949)
This movie holds a special place in my heart. I remember spending a week on my Grandparent’s farm every summer. My Grandmother and I would watch this movie every time I came to stay. I read the book for the first time this year and couldn’t believe the feelings of nostalgia that came flooding back.
» The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory ⇒ The Other Boleyn Girl (2008)
I actually watched the movie BEFORE reading the book with this one. I loved the movie so much, I just had to read the book. This was actually my first Philippa Gregory book, and I am so glad this movie introduced me to her books.
»The Hobbit & The Lord of the Rings Trilogy: The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return of the King by J.R.R Tolkien
I love these movies. Aesthetically, these movies are absolutely breathtaking. I have to admit, I’ve only read The Hobbit and The Fellowship of the Ring. One of these days I will get around to reading the other two books.
» The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis ⇒ The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe (2005)
I read The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe for the first time this past month. I always loved the movie, but until reading the book I didn’t appreciate how well done this adaptation really is.
» The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
Duh… just duh.
» Me Before You by Jojo Moyes ⇒ Me Before You (2016)
Even though I think the movie left out some key elements from the book, I thought this adaptation was well done. I thought it was cast extremely well. It evoked the same strong emotions that the book did.
