Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Page-to-Screen Adaptations

Top Ten Tuesdays (TTT) is a weekly event now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week's TTT is: Page to Screen freebie. For this freebie, I decided to do my top ten favorite book-to-screen adaptations.

This adaptation was the only one that made me jump ships because the Peter on the film version was much better than the one I had thought of in my head while reading the book.

I admit that I haven't seen the other adaptation yet (the one with Colin Firth) so I am biased for now, but I love this film. That characters, the setting, the way it was filmed, I love this movie and re-watch it often.

I really love the cast they choose for this film, I feel like it was dead-on after watching. I love the way everything was filmed and the way the story was told, it was all so well done.

This book was so good, and so was the movie. It was so well done! They did such a good job of handling the scenes, both comical and serious ones.

This is no surprise.. but I had to include the Harry Potter adaptations! I'm not sure which one is my favorite but I do like the later ones in the series more than the first two.

Another series I had to include. This series was so well done on film, from the characters to the special effects to delivering the themes on film just as they are in the book. My favorite film of the series is Catching Fire.

I love the cast they choose for this adaptation, they were perfect. My only complaint was that some of the plot was left out or jumbled up in translation from book to screen. But most of that I understand was because the movie is a stand-alone where the book is the first in a series.

This movie was just as good as the book. I loved the cast and the way the movie played out on screen.  This is one I keep in mind to rewatch.

This book translated better to screen than I thought it would! I'm so excited that they are going to do another season (premiering soon!)

I really like the way that they put this book to film. I think Emily Blunt did such a good job portraying the complexity and questionability of the main character. It was a well done adaptation!


  1. Isn't it always nice when the movies capture a character in a way you like better than you imagined? :3 I haven't watched or read most of these, but I did really like the Harry Potter movies, too (some more than others).

    Here's my TTT post.

  2. I keep hearing such good things about Crazy Rich Asians!

    My TTT.

  3. I love The Hunger Games movies more than the books. I just feel like Katniss has more heart on the screen and actually feels things, where as in the book she came across very methodical. I also LOVED the Big Little Lies adaptation. The changes they made to the child characters were PERFECTION. And the To All the Boys movie made me cry it was so good. I actually liked that one the same amount as the book, which is saying something bc the book was AWESOME. Great list!!

  4. I'm kinda picky when it comes to book to film adaptations. Though I did enjoy the Harry Potter ones despite a few things that drove me nuts over the lack/changes and whatnot! Lol. Great picks!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!
