This week we get to go back and pick any of the past topics we liked and use it. I picked 2 different topics and split my 10 in to 2 groups of 5. First Up…
Top Ten Books I can’t believe I’ve never read
Here they are in no particular order
I feel like I talk about this book so often you would think I would have read it 10 times over. I keep picking it up and getting 40 or so pages in and then putting it down. I don’t really know why or if I will ever actually read it but it’s so on the short list.
I can’t say why I haven’t read it since my mom keeps going on and on and on about how much she loves it. I think I may be scared of the Brontes.
This movie has some serious childhood memories attached to it. I love the movie and I watch it whenever it comes on. I also find myself quoting lines in my everyday life. So why haven’t I read it you ask? Because I’m scared. What if I hate the book or it’s so good I start disliking parts of the movie! AHHH! As God is my witness I will read this book.
I feel pretty much the same about this book as I do Gone with the Wind. I love this movie it holds a special place in my movie heart and I might feel differently after I read the book but, I will read it this year.
When I tell you that this is yet another movie that sort of defined my adolescence you are going to think that my parents only exposed me to things with serious race issues attached and, well you would kind of be right! But that’s a topic for another time. This miniseries was MAJOR in my life and yet I haven’t read the books.
Second Choice is…
Top Ten Book To Movie Adaptations
I know a lot of people thought Kate Hudson was the wrong choice for Darcy but, I love Hudson so it worked for me. I read the book first and really liked it and the movie was jut as enjoyable. I don’t think they are going to do the sequel but I would love to see it if they do.
I liked the book better than the movie mostly because of the ending. But the movie had all the fashion! I would just die if I got to walk around in the Vogue accessories closet.
I really love Miss Marple books and I have read quit a few but this was my first and favorite. I read the book years ago and then recently stumbled upon the movies on Netflix. I think my favorite part is Geraldine McEwan who plays Marple, she is exactly as I imagined her,
I watched the movie first and so went into the book thinking I knew what I was going to get. Boy was I wrong. They are so different. The have the same basic premise and the names are the same but that’s about it. They were both really funny and I can’t decide which one I love more.
I love this book, I love the 1995 film version and, I love the 2005 film version . Colin Firth will always be my favorite Darcy but Matthew Macfadyen is like really sexy so. Yeah I love everything that has to do with Pride and Prejudice end of discussion.
