Novel Films Blogfest

So Happy first day of August, people. I can't think of a better way to welcome it than with a blogfest that makes you use your brain when its a hundred degrees outside. Thanks in advance to our host Madeleine over at Scribble and Edit for thinking up such a fun idea. I found out about this a few weeks back, and at the time, I could think of a ton of titles, but now I'm near blank. Should have written them down then. But here are a few that I can remember. I'll post more as they come to me later on. Things happen after that third cup of coffee. I'm still on number two so no miracles. Sorry.

Angela's Ashes
The Importance of Being Ernest
New Moon
Breaking Dawn (read the book, will FINALLY see the movie in November)
Pride and Prejudice
Along Came a Spider
Kiss the Girls
The Client
Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil
Black Beauty
How the Grinch Stole Christmas
Winnie the Pooh
Charlotte's Web
The Cat in the Hat

I'm sure there's more. It seems there should be. I mean, shouldn't Hollywood get on with it? I could name a hundred books that should be made into movies.What about you?

Oh, and please forgive me for my sporadic blogging lately. Things have been crazy busy. For those of you who have stopped by to read this, I don't deserve you but thank you for being here. Tell me what you've been up to and head on over to visit Madeleine's blog. You 'll be glad you did.

Happy Monday!


  1. this was a fun blogfest. and i wonder why we apologize for not blogging. life is what it is.

  2. Great list. I forgot Dr Seuss and Charlotte's Web in my list. Thanks for joining in :O)

  3. I forgot Hamlet! LOL. After reading your list, I'm thinking of several other titles I forgot to add to mine.

  4. Hi,

    Ha ha, just knew I'd go round blogs and see books and movie's I missed putting on my list! ;)


  5. Things have been crazy, huh?? How about packing and moving your house within 30days and moving in with family until your new house is ready in another 30 days in which case you'll have to move again. Yep. That's me.
    But anyway, I totally forgot about Midnight in the Garden. Wasn't Kevin Spacey perfect for the main guy...forgot his name. Love him.

  6. Oh, Winnie the Pooh! He was my favorite as a kid. Still have him. Loved the books and the movies.

  7. This sounds like fun! The real trick though would be to find a movie that did the book justice.

  8. Hi there, fellow blogfester checking in to get ideas. I should have my own entry up this evening.

    Three books that I think really should get movies made out of them are:
    So you want to be a wizard, Diane Duane
    Dragonflight, Anne McCaffrey
    A Charmed life, Diana Wynne Jones

    If you get a chance, check out a fellow writer's zombie story and help me make him wear an embarrassing shirt next year! It's the ultimate grudge match between social media and the zombies. Details are here:

  9. I saw this pone on another blog and I'm still trying to figure out which I've seen....

  10. What have I been up to? Wriiiiiiiiiting. I can add The Horse Whisperer to the list of books made into movies (even if it was butchered in the process).

  11. I completely forgot about Midnight In The Garden Of Good And Evil! Great list.

  12. Great list! I still have Along Came a Spider in my to be read box. Yes... the stack got to be too high. But that's the one in your list that I want to read most.


  13. I've read three of those and have seen a few more of the film versions. Some good ones here.

    Tossing It Out

  14. Great list! I didn't think about books I'd read in school until I read yours, thanks!

  15. Ooh, I forgot about How The Grinch Stole Christmas! Good one!

  16. I've seen a lot of those movies and read a few. I'm just not sure which versions of the classics like Hamlet you mean. Maybe note the year they were made in. IMDB is a good source, or just Google.

  17. You have a fabulous blog! I'm your newest follower. I want to award you with one of my homemade awards: Powerful Woman Writer Award for all the hard work you do!

    Go to and pick up your award.

  18. I'd like to add my own books to the list - no harm in hoping.. :0)


Thank you for your comments. Me loves them!
