Top Ten Tuesday: Best/Worst Movie adaptations

 Today's Top Ten Tuesday topic is: Top 10 Best/Worst Book to Movie adaptations.  I think I'll do 5/5.
Best (because they stayed close to the book):
5.  Diary of a Wimpy Kid
4.  The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe

3.  The Princess Bride 
2.  The Hunger Games
1.  All the Harry Potters

Honorable mention:  The Game of Thrones series.  I know, I know, it's a tv show, but they stay as close as they can to the book, and I appreciate that.  

Worst (all because they didn't follow the book!  Some almost at all!):  
5.  The Tale of Despereaux
4.  Angels and Demons
3.  My Sister's Keeper (I have never read My Sister's Keeper, but I do know that the plot of the movie varies greatly from that of the book)
2.  The Grinch
1.  Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief (I have high hopes for the second movie coming out soon.  As in, I hope they don't mess it up as bad as they did the first)

*Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish
**All movie posters were found by a google image search. 


  1. Percy Jackson made my worst list too. The casting was awful. I have watched all the Harry Potters but I haven't read any of the books. Great list.

  2. Good list, I love Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, Princess Bride and Hunger Games as well. I also dislike Percy Jacksons adaption as well.

  3. Great list! I loved all the Harry Potters and The Game of Thrones series. I also have high hopes for the second movie of Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief, can't wait. :)
