The Novel Films Blogfest!

Madeleine over at Scribble and Edit is hosting a Novel Films Blogfest!

Here is the challenge if you choose to accept it:

“There’s a lot of novels, comics and plays that have been made into films and TV dramas, BUT how many of them have you BOTH seen the film/TV drama and read the original book, play or comic story?”

This is a fun idea and I’m glad Madeleine got it going. I checked thorough the list of books made into movies to help add to my list. I didn’t realize there were so many! My list is not long, but I did find several books and movies I want to check out now. (I’ll write about that on Wednesday.)

Here is my list:

Old Yeller

Charlotte’s Web

The Secret Garden

To Kill a Mockingbird

James and the Giant Peach

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

Most of these pairings happen to be children’s books/films. They were all wonderful to read and watch.

I hope you join in the fun or at least check out the participating blogs.

Have you enjoyed the books/movies on my list as well?

    • Thanks for the suggestions, Jeyna. Those sound good. I love it when I can read a chapter book to my daughter and then follow up with the movie!

  1. I read and loved “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone”, but haven’t seen the movie yet. My list will be up later this evening.

    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:

  2. My 4th grade teacher read Charlotte’s Web to us over a period of several days and it was wonderful–I remember crying at the end. I took my kids to see the animated version when they were little. Someday I’ve got to read the HP books and see the films.
