10 thoughts on “Books To Movies 2019

  1. I’ve always loved the idea of books to film. The truth be told, there are a lot of youngsters who learn by seeing and hearing. Where reading is difficult for them, it is nice that they can look at the films, and then, maybe we could motivate them to develop a love for reading.

    Thanks for putting these out for us to see. I am looking forward to the other dog films and books.

    1. Hi Josephine!
      I borrowed Artemis Fowl from the library just because I saw the trailer and it looked good. The books are usually better than the movie so I can’t wait to read it.

      I expect I will be going to see some of the kids movies too ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. A few sound good, how many remakes of Little Women can there be?? And Call of the Wild? How about IT, another remake of that one too? The Impossible, The Goldfinch and Rosie Project sound good to me.

    1. Hi Kristine!
      There are lots of remakes, especially Little Women! You’d think ‘hollywood’ and others would stop at 2. Rosie Project sounds like a fun book to read. The Goldfinch and The Woman In The Window are my top two that I will be anticipating.
      Do you prefer to read the book before the movie?

    1. Hi Olivia!
      I am looking forward to The Goldfinch too! The book was amazing! Arlene and I have talked about re-reading it since we loved it so much.
      I have just borrowed Artemis Fowl from the library. The trailer for the movie looks good and I figured I’d read it before I watch the movie.

      Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Hi Alicia!
      There were a couple more books that were adapted to movies that I didn’t include. They were books about dogs. There were also a few that didn’t have a scheduled date that I didn’t include. The Nightingale is being adapted but it may be coming out next year.
      I can’t wait to watch The Woman In The Window!
