Top Ten Tuesday – Page To Screen📚

What Em's Reading (3)

Hello my wonderful followers, how is everyone on this Tuesday?! I’m back again for another Top Ten Tuesday, revived and currently hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This Tuesday’s Top Ten is Page to Screen, so any books that have been adapted for the big or small screen.

  1. Gone Girl – I actually watched the film of this before I read it, a sin I know 😦 and I enjoyed the film that much that I treated myself to the book and read it within a day. The book was spoilt slightly for me but that was because I knew the twist after having seen the film!
  2. Carrie – I love this book, it’s one of my favourite of Stephen King’s books and it’s one of the only ones that actually frightens me a little bit!
  3. The Da Vinci Code – one of my favourite books and films, I find Dan Brown’s books to be really jam packed so it’s nice to be able to watch it sometimes instead of reading it. 
  4. Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone – what would one of my lists be without Harry Potter?! This is the first of 8 films made and I can pick a fault with every single one, I guess I just love the books too much *shrugs
  5. The Silence of The Lambs – this is my favourite Thomas Harris novel and I really enjoyed the screen portrayal of it as well, it still makes me jump to this day after I’ve watched it a gazzilion times! 
  6. Salem’s Lot – I’m actually yet to see the remake of this film released in 2019 but that was because I wanted to finish the book first, I’m super excited to watch it.
  7. Fifty Shades of Grey – Ugh I’m ashamed to admit that I even read this book, I’m not going to lie it was the worst thing I ever read and the worst thing ever put onto screen NOT SOZ
  8. Misery – I thought this was a CRACKING book and I enjoyed the film adaptation so much, I deliberately waited until I’d finished reading the book before I watched it on Netflix and I’m glad I did as I did think there were a few bits that would have been confusing otherwise.
  9. The Exorcist – I’d seen bits of this film before I read the book and now I’ve completed it I’m looking forward to watching the screen adaptation, some of the scenes in the book, I’m really looking forward to seeing how they’re done!
  10. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – I’m really glad they split this into 2 films, the only way to fit everything in (as all of it was equally important to the final scenes) was to create 2 films, and because for a Potterhead (Ravenclaw if u wanted to know :)) it never ends when I can just restart the books or the films at any point.

Did any of my Top Ten books make your list? Let me know in the comments below!
