They say it's always best to read the book before the film.
If you happen to be an avid reader, having the luxury of reading a book in it's entirety before it hits the big screen is pretty amazing. The great thing about reading is that you have the opportunity to get lost in a brand new world and experience what a character has experienced. It's almost like dreaming while awake.
If you happen to be a hopeless romantic like myself, than reading romance novels puts you in a place that you've been in before, are in at the moment or would love to go to. It's a great feeling and that's why often times it is hard for us readers to put a book down once we pick it up. It's almost like traveling to another realm. When the book and the film both exceed your expectations, that's when you know that the story line was perfect. If you're a reader or a hopeless romantic, than you will more than likely know these books that were later turned into films. If you don't and you're looking for a journey, check these books out. You won't regret it.
A Walk To Remember
Before there was The Fault In Our Stars, there was A Walk To Remember. Yet another tear jerker made into a great film that will make you appreciate life and the ones around you.
Nick And Norah's Infinite Playlist
Your typical love story. Girl asks boy to play along with her story. He does and ends up falling for her. She ends up falling for him. The End. Sounds perfect, right? You have to read the book and watch the film to find out for yourself.
The Lovely Bones
I never got the opportunity to read the book, but the film was superb. I can only imagine that the book was twice as nice. Definitely a lovely plot that will get you shaking in your bones.
The Fault In Our Stars
We all have faults. This book doesn't happen to be one. It's amazing and the film is all the more amazing. If you're in need of a good cry, this book is for you.
Fifty Shades Of Grey
I'm sure you have heard about the craze by now, but if you haven't -- the novel have nothing to do with the color spectrum.
Oh, and watching.
