Top Ten Tuesday REWIND: Books Made Into A Movie

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish. Every Tuesday has another topic and different bloggers give their top ten. I love making lists, so here's mine for this week!

This week's topic is 

Top Ten Books Made Into A Movie

That I love books shouldn't be a surprising, but I also love watching movies. Although I do that far less than reading. I'm often engaged in discussions about books made into movies. Especially about which is better: the book or the movie. If I had to choose between never reading again or never watching a movie again I would pick the movie, because I could never go without books!
So I might say that books are most of the time better than the movie, but not always! I could write a whole post about this discussion, so I won't go any further here! So here's my Top Ten Books Made Into A Movie!

 1  Harry Potter

I loved all the books and movies. It would be even hard for me to pick a favorite.

 2  The Devil Wears Prada

I've watched this movie so many times by now. It's definitely not the best movie I've ever seen, but I just love watching it. It's fun, light and cheers me up when I'm feeling a bit down. I've read the book once and liked it.

 3  The Hunger Games

Although I've only seen the movie in the theaters and haven't bought the DVD yet I did love it. And the book is just amazing!

 4  Twilight

Most of the time I put on a movie when I'm also doing other stuff (like blogging). It's a long time ago I really sat down to watch Twilight, but I love to watch it while being busy. 

 5  The Lord of the Rings / The Hobbit

I lost count how many times I've watched The Lord of the Rings, I really love those movies. I intend to reread the books this year for the seventh time! Yes, I know, I'm crazy. The Hobbit is now on DVD and I can't wait to watch it again!

 6  The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants

This is one of the view books-made-into-movies were I first saw the movie and read the books later. It was quite a surprise that there were four books and only two movies. Although I love how they put the stories together!

 7  Atonement

Both the book and the movie left a huge impression on me. It was the second book I read by Ian McEwan and I still intend to read more by him. 

 8  Casino Royale

Some of you might know that my boyfriend is a James Bond fan and that he got me hooked on it too. I love watching the Bond movies, especially the later ones with Daniel Craig. I must admit that I've only read the first few chapters of the book so far, but they're both amazing. 

 9  The Notebook / The Last Song / A Walk to Remember / Dear John

I love Nicholas Sparks' books and they've been made into beautiful movies. They always make me cry. 

10 The Golden Compass

I'd never read His Dark Materials until I'd seen the movie. I'm not a big fan of the movie, although I did like it. But this is a classic case of the book is way better than the movie!

What topic did you choose in TTT REWIND this week? And what's your favorite Book Made Into A Movie?


  1. I loved both The Hunger Games book and movie. Probably one of my favourite adaptations ever! I've read The Notebook and A Walk to Remember but haven't seen the films, which I will be doing soon, and I've watched The Last Song but need to read it! I really want to re-read the His Dark Materials series, and if I do that, I'll probably watch the film too. Great list!

    My Top Ten

  2. I'm so happy to see Devil Wears Prada on your list! I love that movie and really liked the book as well. And yeah for HP, Hunger Games, and LoTR! Thanks for sharing.

  3. Oh I agree, I'd pick the book too. Plus they are always better, I hate how much detail gets cut to make the film. Really loved Harry Potter and the Hunger Games movies though. I have never read The Notebook or Atonement but loved the movies, maybe I should read the books so. Great choices :)

  4. I've only seen about half of those movies and I also love them :D
