Top 10 Books Vs Movies

As those of you who visit my blog regularly might already know, I recently completed a couple of month long blogging challenges. One of the themes was books vs movies, and when this week’s topic over at Top 10 Tuesday was just that, I just had to shortlist The Top 10 Books vs Movies from the 26 🙂

Once Upon a Time, Long, Long, Ago,

(well, not really too long ago), a Top 10 List was being created, unaware of it’s origins in the A to Z of things. So keep reading, dear reader, to find out which were the lucky 10 that made it.

The Top 10 Books vs Movies

The Book Thief

The Book Thief has become one of my favorite books since I read it a few years ago. Markus Zusak knows how to reach out to his audience and grip their hearts directly! For me, the book was a clear winner in this case. You can pick your choice below.

What do I say about a girl called Coraline? I watched the movie first, loved the title scene, and the movie itself. I then read the book (bowing now to the mastery of Neil Gaiman)!

The book it was for me. You can pick your choice below.

The Fault in Our Stars

Gone With the Wind

Gone With the Wind – I think I surprised myself when I completed reading this whopping volume of a book; and had enjoyed it too! Watched the movie with the book in hand, shushing everyone at home 🙂 but in the end, realized I loved the book better. What about you?

The Invention of Hugo Cabret

The Invention of Hugo Cabret – My son’s interest in the movie, and in the book “drew” me to this book; and I was in love with this format of writing. The movie is beautiful too!

The winner (however) – the book!

Life of Pi


Life of Pi – This was one time where the stunning visuals of the movie wowed me and won the competition over my imagination. But for the rest of the stuff, the book topped.

Matilda won over our hearts in the book and in the movie; but if I had to choose one, then it has to be the book here.

One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest – This is one where the book and the movie made me split my decision exactly halfway through – so love them both equally!

To Kill a Mockingbird


To Kill a Mockingbird – Gregory Peck’s movie version or Harper Lee’s book version – this was a tie for me…

Vertigo – I loved the Hitchcock movie – watched it and did not even know it was based on a book until recently. I read it and loved it too. My verdict – both are equally good! You can vote below.
