Today, I wanted to share a few books I love that were made into movies.
The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks
I know it’s very cliche to love The Notebook, but I do! I’m a huge fan of the Nicholas Sparks books and anytime he announces another movie adaptation I start to freak out! Obviously, The Notebook is the most popular one, but I love every single one of them.
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
I really loved reading this series and was so excited when the movies started coming out. Part 1 of the Mocking Jay will be out this year! Yay! I can’t wait to see it. I just hope that the movie doesn’t portray Katniss as needy as she was in the third book. That’s the only thing I didn’t like about the last book.
As a side note, when my fiancé gave me the books for Christmas..or my birthday, not sure which…I read all three in a week. I think he missed me that week.
The Twilight Saga by Stephenie Myers
I will admit that I never finished the last book (I seriously need to do that), but I read all the others. I loved the series and I thought the movies were just ok. I just didn’t like Kristen Stewart playing Bella. She kind of ruined it for me, but that’s just my opinion.

I loved the Hunger Games books, too. I’ve only seen the first movie, and it was pretty good, but I liked the books better. I’m trying to think if there’s a movie I’ve seen that I thought was better than the book it was based on. Nope, can’t think of any. The A&E/BBC miniseries of Pride and Prejudice (1995) was pretty darn close to the book, and pretty close to my vision of the story, so that’s a big win for me.
My favorite would have to be Pride and Prejudice.
I love Pride and Prejudice the movie, but I haven’t read the book yet.
