top ten tuesday: favourite movies based on books


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.


top ten best/worst movie adaptations favourite movies based on books

I'm cheating terribly with this week's TTT - it turns out that although many of my favourite movies are based on books I've never read the source material so I can't really comment as to the quality of the adaptation! Instead, here are 10 of my favourite films which are based (sometimes very loosely) on novels. Titles marked with an asterisk are those which I've actually read. (Yes, it's true that I've never finished P&P!)

    1. Thanks! I haven't read the book cover-to-cover but I almost always flick through it when I see it in bookshops!
