My Top Ten Favorite Book to Movie Adaptations

top ten tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a fun weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is a All about the Visuals: Top Ten Favorite Graphic Novels/Comics or Ten Comics on My TBR or Top Ten Favorite Picture Books.

This topic was challenging for me as I don’t read graphic novels, picture books, or comics.  Instead of skipping this week’s post altogether, I decided to go a bit rogue and do my favorite book to movie adaptations.  I don’t know if movies technically count as visuals in the way the prompt intended, but I’m going to pretend they do to suit my purpose.  🙂  Plus, all of these movies are amazing and everyone should watch them anyway! In some instances below, I even prefer the movie to the book and that’s saying something because it’s a rare thing for me to prefer a movie to a book. And I know number 10 is technically a miniseries and not a movie, but it’s just too glorious not to include.
