Sunday Confessions is a weekly meme. It's a way to share a little bit about myself and to get to know my followers. This is all in good fun. So please feel free to comment. I look forward to your responses!!!!
I have not read Harry Potter. I can hear your gasps from here! LOL. It's true. I have all the Harry Potter books but I have not read them. Why? Because I love the movies. I have a problem: I am not a big fan of books that have been made into movies. The books are always better and the movies, most of the time, are lacking. I know once I read the Harry Potter books I will feel differently about the movies. Whenever I watch a movie based on a book, I can't help but compare the two. I go into the movie with certain expectations. I try to keep an open mind too, but sometimes I wonder if the directors/screen writers have even read the book they are making a movie of. I could rant for hours on this subject, however this Sunday Confession is on books that made a good transition to the big screen. I have given this a lot of thought and I came up with:
I really liked the book and was pleasantly surprised by the movie. It's not often that I come away from a movie thinking that the movie did the book justice. Now it's your turn! What's your favorite book turned movie?
