Hello, my epic and awesome bookworms!
I’m good. The weather has been up and down. Rainy and snowy (which sucks). It’s supposed to be spring! I’ve discovered that I’m really into the trend of cacti. Don’t know why. Well, actually, it may relate to me being as prickly as a cactus. Kidding!And I’m on my sixth bag of jelly beans, but I can’t help it! The Sweet Tart Jellies are sooooo good. They do that thing where they rub my tongue raw, though.
Anyway, I have the monthly book list! This time I went with one that could stir up debate: the best book turned movie. There are a lot of favorites out there. I took some time to get some and have compiled a list. You be the judge!
Bridge to Terabithia
Author: Katherine Paterson
“It really captured all of the creativity and imagination that the characters have.”
Author: J.K. Rowling
“It was pretty close to the books and created real magic.”
Gone with the Wind
Author: Margaret Mitchell
“I love historical fiction and this really did well in capturing Scarlet O’Hara. The length of the movie compared to the book was perfect.”
The Time Machine
Author: H.G. Wells
“I love time travel sci-fi. The movie was really good in showing how the hero slowly turned into the villain with each time travel. It’s also gotten me into Dr. Who.”
Water for Elephants
Author: Sara Gruen
“A truly magical story. Kept close to the book.”
Author: Stephanie Meyer
“I loved how well the intensity of the emotions of the characters were captured. Edward was perfect.”
The Princess Bride
Author: William Goldman
“Just, yes. Definitely the best.”
Cat in the Hat
Author: Dr. Seuss
Author: Lois Lowry
“It wasn’t perfect, but they did a good job capturing the vibe.”
Because of Winn-Dixie
Author: Kate DiCamillo
“It did a wonderful job of capturing the essence of Opal and her relationships.”
