Booking Through Thursday – Literary Love @ The Movies

Booking Through Thursday

“Name a favorite literary couple and tell me why they are a favorite. If you cannot choose just one, that is okay too. Name as many as you like–sometimes narrowing down a list can be extremely difficult and painful. Or maybe that’s just me.”

Lately I have been getting very excited about knowing that books I have enjoyed will be coming to the big screen. So for this week’s BTT topic I have chosen couples from two books I have loved and the related movies I cannot wait to go see.

I loved Claire and Henry!

I love Henry and Clare, too. I haven't read Blindness, but I'd like to before I see the film.

Those movies both look great but I haven't read either book yet - ack! Great list!

Smilingsal said...

I haven't read these either. I chose another couple.

Matt said...

Gosh, Blindness is one of my favorite 10 novels! Talk about going through thick and thin! Great choice!

I have Time Traveler'a Wife waiting fro me on the shelf and I hope to get to it before the end of the year...can't wait to meet Claire and Henry!

Andi said...

Yay! I had completely forgotten that The Time Traveler's Wife is coming to screen! And I didn't know they'd done the casting! Great choices, in my humble opinion. :D

I bawled all the way through the end of The Time Traveler's Wife. I don't know how I will make it through the movie, but I'm so excited to see they are making one. When is it coming out?

Never has a book made me cry harder than The Time Traveler's Wife... I hadn't seen any pictures from the movie - it looks fantastic!

Shana said...

Joanne, I want to see both movies but must read the books first :)

I COMPLETELY forgot about Claire and Henry!! I loooved the Time Traveller's Wife! I'm a little sad that they didn't choose actors a little less well-known, but I'm still excited to see it!!

I think that Time Travelers Wife (the movie) is expected in theaters Fall 2009.

Went to see Blindness last night - it is great - very true to the novel which I adore in movies based on books.

Eric Bana! *sigh* lol I have to see that movie when it comes out.
