When it comes to blogging memes, I don’t follow any consistently, but I like jumping in when I like the topic (not to mention, when I’ve got the time!). It’s rare that I post on a Tuesday, but Alison Doherty at Hardcovers and Heroines inspired me to discuss my favorite movie adaptations of books.
Without further ado! In order from good to greatest:
- To Kill a Mockingbird, based on the book by Harper Lee
- The Crucible, based on the play by Arthur Miller
- The Princess Diaries, based on the book by Meg Cabot
- Fight Club, based on the book by Chuck Palahnuik
- The Age of Innocence, based on the book by Edith Wharton
- Howl’s Moving Castle, based on the book by Diana Wynne Jones
- The Great Gatsby, based on the book by F. Scott Fitzgerald
- Harry Potter series, based on the books by J.K. Rowling
- Never Let Me Go, based on the book by Kazuo Ishiguro
I was surprised to find out that Daniel Day-Lewis starred in two of these films…but then again, I shouldn’t be because he’s an amazing actor! So which movies would you add to your list?
