|Book to Movie: Which book turn movie do you feel did the best adaptation? What about the worst?|
I almost always try to read a book before its movie adaptation comes out! I've actually been introduced to some amazing books simply because I saw the trailer for its movie counterpart. And nothing elicits more excitement and anxiety than finding out one of your favorite books is being made into a movie right?!
I love ALL the Harry Potter movies and think they did an amazing job capturing the magic of this series...but, I do think the first two movies captured the complete essence of the books best.
All three movie adaptations of the Lord of the Rings series are amazing! Beyond being stunning and spectacularly made, they're all pretty damn true to the series as a whole.
I love watching the Anne of Green Gables movies, especially the first two. The third? Not so much. Megan Follows was born to play Anne!
Yes, they changed the ending in the movie, but I never really cared when I was younger, nor do I now. I think the movie still brought this story to life beautifully and captured Sara Crewe so wonderfully.

|Question: Keeping with the Spirit of Giving this season, what book do you think EVERYONE should read and if you could, you would buy it for all of your family and friends?|
This is a tougher question than I thought it would be! Hmm, well I think my first answer will always be Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. I truly wish I could place this book in the hands of every child around the world. The magic and beauty that begins in this book is something every child should get to experience.
For older readers...I'd go with Of Human Bondage, Howl (and other poems), and Othello (everything you'd ever need to know about human nature can be found in this play, plus Iago is one of my fave villains).
WHAT BOOK WOULD YOU CHOOSE? LEAVE LINKS IN THE COMMENTS. IF YOU'RE A NEW FOLLOWER LET ME KNOW SO I CAN FOLLOW YOU BACK :)
