Sooo.. I initially drew a blank at this question. I know I've seen a lot of movies that I've liked that were based on novels I haven't yet read, but not many of my favorite books have become movie adaptations.
The only one that comes to mind is The Hunger Games. I looooved the book and thought the movie was good. Of course it wasn't going to live up to the greatness of the novel, they never do, but I definitely enjoyed watching it.
One of my all-time favorite books recently became a tv show, Bitten. It's on the SyFy channel and is based on the debut in Kelley Armstrong's Women of the Otherworld series. I think they did a good job with the casting and I look forward to watching it every single Monday.
My only failure also falls into the tv series category instead of movies and that's True Blood, based on Charlaine Harris' Sookie Stackhouse series. I was very much in love with the first two seasons of the show and then it slowly began to slide downhill for me. I love the characters, just not the storylines and I'm not as excited as I used to be when the season premieres.
What about you? Have any of your favorite books become movies? What did you think?
Since we're talking adaptations, I had to throw in the trailer for the next season of Game of Thrones. I haven't read the series but I'm completely obsessed with this show.
