    Default Books that are now movies

    Even low budget movies! I love reading a book and then seeing it on the screen.
    Please recommend some.

    Default Books that are now movies

    The book thief
    A fault in our stars
    Water for Elephants
    The Hunger Games
    Chocolat
    The Road
    Life of Pi
    The time travelers wife
    The notebook (and quite a few other Nicholas Sparks)
    Perks of being a wallflower
    Nick and Nora's infinite playlist
    Tomorrow when the war began
    Stardust
    Bridget Jones' Diary
    The Nanny Diaries
    The Lord of the rings and the Hobbit
    Harry Potter Series
    The great gatsby
    Pretty much all Jane Austen
    Captain Correli's mandolin
    The Bourne identity and sequels
    The Help
    Lots of John Grishams

    Haha, I can't believe I know so many! I've barely seen any of those movies, but read almost all of the books- I guess it depends on what sort of genre you like to read/watch

    ETA apart from the Bournes and the Grishams, I've watched those but not read them

    You would be a great team member at a very specific quiz night.

    ETA and there's one you haven't thought of. It's called um...I can't remember but I hated it...

    Oh yes! Gone girl.

    The Boy in the Striped Pajamas. (The book was better than the movie, but the movie was still good, well as good as it can be)

    The Secret Garden (even as an adult I love reading the book and watching the movie)

    A Little Princess (ditto above)

    Little Women

    If you're in to Jane Austen, and Pride and Prejudice in particular, then there's always 'Death Comes to Pemberley'. The book is by PD James and there was a 3 part miniseries that came out last year. It's just a different perspective on things

    Jane Eyre

    Jessica (book by Bryce Courtenay, Australian movie from about 10 years ago)

    Eat Pray Love

    I'm sure I'll have more when I get up and look in my bookcase/DVD collection
