Books into Movies Challenge

Check out this Lit Flicks Challenge. You read 5 books that have been made into movies and watch at least 2 of the movies by February 28th.

This works well for me because that's one of the 8th Gr. English Teacher's themes for next month. I will be doing book talks to her class on books that have been made into movies. The students have to read the book/watch the movie and write a paper comparing/contrasting them. Two books she's given me to read are: Hoot and Princess Bride.

I also chose Lord of the Flies because I've always wanted to read that. I just need two more book choices! I think I want to watch the movies for all of them though!!

Book Club Girl suggested the following websites to find your book/movie combos:
Mid-Continent Public Library
UnSpun by Amazon
The Guardian Top 50 Movie Adaptations - scroll down for list

I also suggest you check out:
Teen Reads - here
Kids Reads - here

Have fun!! Let me know if you join.


  1. Thanks for joining the Lit Flicks Challenge! I look forward to reading your reviews.

  2. Ditto on the thanks for joining the Lit Flicks Challenge. It's nice that it fits in with your real life. (I find it's easier to finish challenges that way.) I'm going to read Lord of the Flies here soon too. I can't wait to read your thoughts.


Thanks for chatting! I love comments and look forward to reading yours! I may not reply right away, but I am listening! Keep reading and don't forget to be awesome!
