Top Ten Tuesday – From Page to Screen

  1. The Lovely Bones
  2. The Fault in Our Stars
  3. The Perks of Being a Wallflower
  4. Gone Girl
  5. One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest
  6. Lord of the Flies
  7. The Giver
  8. To Kill a Mockingbird

Now mind you although I’d like to see the movie, I shall haven’t read the books, and I refuse to see the movie before I’ve read the book. It’s a rule of mine. It’s rather psychosomatic I know. I feel if the movie is crap than there’s a good chance the book will be too and won’t read it. But I could be wrong.
