Top Ten Tuesday (TTT) brought to you by The Broke and the Bookish.
You never know how a book adaptation is going to go. Sometimes, it’s a flop. (Percy Jackson, anyone?) Sometimes it’s better than the book (Jane Eyre was for me.) Sometimes you refuse to see it because you know it will ruin the books forever. (Tom Cruse as Jack Reacher? I don’t think so.)
Most of the time, I enjoy the film adaptations. They may not always follow the book perfectly, but they are fun to watch.
This week, I’ve split my top ten (eleven!) into three categories. Shall we?
Top Ten (er, eleven) Book To Movie Adaptations
…I’m Looking Forward To
- Through the Looking Glass
- Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
…I Still Need to Watch

- Perks of Being a Wallflower
…My All Time Favorites
- The Princess Bride
- The Lord of the Rings
- Bedknobs and Broomsticks
- Stand By Me
I love films. This was a tough list for me to narrow down. (Hence, the top eleven.) What did I miss? (My husband would say The Shawshank Redemption under all time favorites.) What’s up and coming that I need to watch? Comment below and link up to your TTT if you’ve got one!
