The topic for this week's Hi5 is your top 5 picks for books made into movies:
1) A Walk to Remember
Nicholas Sparks is an incredible author, as I'm sure many of you already know, but A Walk to Remember was one of my all time favorite books. So when I heard there was a movie I was a little worried that it wouldn't come close to holding up. The film, however, did not disappoint. It wasn't exactly like the book, which I know not all movies can be, but it was pretty darn close. The film still had the characters' traits down along with Jamie and Landon's perfect love for one another. Which is why it is number one on my list.
2) Harry Potter
How could I possibly make a book to movie list without adding the Harry Potter movies? It's action packed and full of adventure, just like the books!
3) Ella Enchanted
This is one of the first chapter books I fell in love with (along with my mom) and was thrilled when it became a movie. Anne Hathaway did a great job portraying Ella and I thought it kept to the storyline (maybe not as much as I wanted it to but) it turned out to be a pretty good movie.
4) Horton Hears A Who
Probably not something you'd except on a YA book blog, but come on! This movie was incredibly cute! This was my favorite book when I was little and I thought the movie was a really adorable adaption of it. The characters are lovable just like in Dr. Seuss' book, it's perfect.
5) Princess Diaries
I almost didn't put this on my list, but the Disney movie got me to read the series, which I fell in love with. Even though the movies are not close to the books, without it I would have never heard of the series, so thank you Disney.
