Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Book to Movie Adaptations

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish

This week's topic is best book to movie adaptions. I couldn't come up with a complete list of ten, so I add adaptions that will be coming out soon or I plan on seeing soon.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone: 10th Anniversary Edition (Harry Potter)Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Widescreen Edition)
Until recently, I had only seen the first two movies of the series. And then my best friends and I remedy that with a 15 hour HP movie marathon. I love the actors of the movie and the special effects. They really give you a piece of Hogwarts

*6* Books for Girls: "Ella Enchanted"; "Journey to Nowhere"; "Daughter of the Mountains"; Freaky Friday"; "Play to the Angel"; and "Seven Spiders Spinning"Ella Enchanted (Widescreen Edition)
I love the way Levine retells fairy tells and I think that Anne Hathaway really does a great job making Ella a kick-ass character.

Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging: Confessions of Georgia Nicolson (Confessions of Georgia Nicolson, Book 1)On the Bright Side, I'm Now the Girlfriend of a Sex God: Further Confessions of Georgia Nicolson (Confessions of Georgia Nicolson, Book 2)Angus Thongs & Perfect Snogging
I think Georgia has made every Top Ten Tuesday list I've made--but I do love her so. I was in England when Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging and I was dying to see it in an English cinema. Sadly, my navigating skills are severely lacking and I just ended up riding the Circle Line... in a circle. Thank goodness for Redbox! Cute cute movie.

Gone With the WindGone with the Wind
Oh, Scarlett and Rhett. The casting of this movie really made it what it was. Vivien Leigh is a classic beauty.

Twelfth Night (Folger Shakespeare Library)She's the Man (Widescreen Edition)
Haha. I love this movie--Amanda Bynes is hilarious and this take on Shakespeare's Twelfth Night is fun and modern.

Beezus and RamonaRamona and Beezus
There is nothing better than a favorite children's book come to life.

And now for movie adaptations I have not seen but am pretty sure are going to be awesome:

Avalon High
Disney made Avalon High one of its monthly made-for-TV movie. I'm a bit skeptical, but come on, it's Meg Cabot.

Jane Eyre (Penny Books)Jane Eyre (Movie Tie-in Edition) (Vintage Classics)

March 11.

I can't wait.

City of Bones (Mortal Instruments)
I am really excited to see how they pull this sucker off. Hope's it comes close to the book.

The Hunger Games
See "City of Bones"

  1. I've seen Ella Enchanted and She's the Man, and I really enjoyed both of them! Also, I can't wait for Jane Eyre as well.It looks like it will be epic! I'm also curious to see what they'll do with the Mortal Instruments series. I'm hoping it will be good, but I'm not too sure about it.
