Books Turned into Upcoming Movies

I totally love it when books I have read turn into movies. I am one of those people that would rather read the book first, and then watch the movie. Once I have seen it as a movie I have no desire to read the book. I think the reasoning is because when I am first reading a book, I imagine what the characters will look like, and what their environments look like, and then the movie just confirms if what I imagined was correct or not.

There are some great books that are being turned into movies and being released this year, and the ones I am very excited to go see are:

Water for Elephants (April 2011) -- Just read this last month, and could not put it down. You can find my review here.

Something Borrowed (June 2011) -- I am currently reading this book and so far it's pretty good. I just learned that it was being turned into a movie, so I totally had to check it out at the library as soon as I heard!

The Help (August 2011) -- This was one of my favorite books that I read last year, and possibly one of my favorites of all times (or at least in a close running, I can never just pick one!). You can find my review here.

Any good movies you are looking to see, or books to read? I am always looking for recommendations.

  1. Love hearing other people's book reviews. I really want to read Water for Elephants. I'm so glad you liked it. I have this weird thing about reading books before seeing the movie version, so I should probably check it out since I won't be able to resist Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson in ONE movie!
