Top Ten Lists

I really haven't read that many new books lately. I've been rereading books. I should be saving for my upcoming New York trip, so I'm being a little more choosy about what I want to buy and I haven't found a single book that I'm willing to spend my money on without second guessing. Which, well, is just odd for me. My problem is usually picking books out of my huge stack, but I am dying for that next great book. The one that is going to stay in my mind for days. The kind I just can't stop raving about. I need that book so, so badly. I am begging all of you to suggest something amazing.
 Anyway... since, I haven't read anything new lately, I haven't reviewed anything.  I always enjoy reading these lists on others blogs, so I'm going to participate this Tuesday.

Today the list is top ten books that are made into movies. My list is in no particular order.

1) Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling. All of them. I think each adaption is amazing. Yes, things are missing, things I desperately wanted to see on the big screen, but I realize everything can't be included. I enjoy both the books and the movies immensely. 

 2) Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer. I really like this series, I know there are a lot of haters out there, but seriously reading about Edward for the first time in Twilight. Swoon. But, I think Eclipse is the only book from the series that had a nice film adaption.

3) I am Number Four by Pittacus Lore. As you may notice all my other pictures are of the books covers, but let's be honest. Alex Pettyfer is the star of I am Number Four and that boy is just too gorgeous to not be featured here. I loved the book and the movie. The movie was different from the book, but I enjoyed it in it's own right. I also enjoyed two hours of Alex.

4. Confessions of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella. I adore this series. It's so funny and charming. I also love the movie. Yes, it's frilly, but so fun.

5. Pride and Prejudice. I love the book so, so much. I read it every year. I fall in love with Mr. Darcy over and over. I also love pretty much all adaptions of the novel. I love the Kiera Knightely version, but I also adore Colin Firth BBC version. Love. Love. Love.

Now...I'm going to list 5 books that are going to be movies that I'm excited for.

6) Beastly by Alex Flinn. Alex Pettyfer. I love the book, I love Beauty and the Beast, I love Alex Pettyfer. It will be great!

7) Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2. That's truly all I need to say. I will be to be pried away from the movie theatre seat. I won't want to leave because leaving will mean that the series that has held on to my heart for 13 years of my life will be over.
8) City of Bones- Cassandra Clare. I love this series so much, I love Jace so much. I can't wait to see it on the big screen one day. I hope when that happens Alex Pettyfer will be Jace. But, even if he's not, I know I'll still love seeing the badass shadowhunters fight! Still hoping<3 Also, I just like to excuse of posting pictures of Alex. :)

9) The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. So, I know this out won't be out for a long while, but seriously. It's the Hunger Games. It will be amazing.
And, I'm drawing a blank. Hm. Hm. Hm. So my list is going to be nine!

  2. New follower! I agree with you, Alex Pettyfer is too gorgeous not to post pictures of. I can't decide whether I want him to play Jace from the Mortal Instruments or Peeta from The Hunger Games! Preferably both.

  3. Alright, I know the feeling of wanting *that* book, whatever it may be, so let me suggest a few.

    Lily of the Nile by Stephanie Dray is the best book I've read all year. Great historical fiction with a strong main character, think of a Royal Katniss, and supernatural/paranormal plot points. Really interesting.

    Babe in Boyland by Jody Gehrman Dude. I snorted my drink up my nose from laughing so hard. Dude.

    Exposed by Kimberly Marcus is a brilliant, consistent verse.

    Mad Love by Suzanne Selfors is so funny, with mythology, and yet somehow so contemporary.

    I know you will love Babe in Boyland, I would hope you could love Lily of the Nile and Exposed may or may not be your thing. No matter what try Mad Love.
