#FaveFiveFriday - Book to Movie/TV Series Adaptations

#FaveFiveFriday is an initiative by Buzz Magazine 

5. The Shawshank Redemption - Movie
 The Movie is based on Stephen King's Novella Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption. The movie took a few liberties and made some changes to the story, but the end product is amazing. It is my favourite Prison Break movie ever. If you haven't watched it till now (I doubt it), go watch it NOW!

4. 13 Reasons Why - Netflix Original Series
Based on Jay Asher's Young Adult Novel of the same name, 13 Reasons Why released recently and was quite talked about on the social media. It is a difficult one to digest, nevertheless a must watch for those who are responsible for teenagers in their lives.

 3. P.S. I Love You - Movie
 Oh! I had such a crush on Gerry (and Gerard Butler by extension) after this movie! This was probably the first movie based on a book that I ever liked. (I usually prefer the books always). The liberties taken to make changes were well done. I still need tissues when I re-watch it.

2. Fault in Our Stars - Movie
 Director Josh Boone has done a great job in capturing the emotions of young Augustus Waters and Hazel Grace Lancaster. Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort brought life to two of my favourite characters by John Green. The book gave me the feels and so did the movie. Keep a box of tissues handy when you watch this film.

1. The Book Thief - Movie
My love for this film is all down to Sophie Nélisse & Geoffrey Rush. The film has been adapted well from the book. But is Sophie's portrayal of young Liesel Meminger that absolutely took my heart away. Geoffrey Rush's portrayal of Hans, the adoptive father is also done really well.

Hope you enjoyed my list. Now do check out what the others participating have on their lists...
