  1. Madeleine, thanks for hosting this fun blogfest. I'm glad I read yours before I posted mine - I'd forgotten the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency. I've almost certainly forgotten lots of others but I managed a fair list :-)

  2. Hi Madeleine. Glad to see 2 great Aussie books/films on your list - Rabbit Proof Fence and A Town Like Alice. Both fab.

    Hope you can find time for RFWers this week. I've missed reading your stories. How difficult could Voices be? Pretty difficult.

  3. Lots and lots!! And yes I likes the film version of Stardust WAY better than the book. I think most did, however I did run into someone who preferred the book version.

    Thanks for the fun blogfest! :)

    Bless you Denise. I hope to post a Romance Friday this week if my brain is up to it. :O)

  6. Thank you again for hosting this blogfest. Such a great idea!

    I've only seen and read two off your list, which just goes to show how many books and films are out there.

  7. This blogfest was a lot of fun. Thanks for hosting!

    I didn't know there was a movie based on the book The Tenant Of Wildfell Hall. I will definitely have to check that one out.

  10. Thanks for the blogfest shoutout, but my blogfest has finished last week. :) Didn't have the time to sign up to this blogfest, but it is a fun one! Off the top of my head, some books that I've also seen the films for include the Da Vinci Code, Angels & Demons, Spiderman, X-Men...and do the fairytales that inspired all the Disney movies count, like Beuaty and the Beast, Cinderella, Jungle Book, etc.?

  11. Hey! Thanks for the fun Blogfest. You made my brain cells get to work earlier than usual for a Monday. Your list looks way better than mine. Have fun hopping.

    Thank you for hosting this blogfest, Madeleine!

  14. The Road stands out to me as one that could never be justly served by a film adaptation. I've been meaning to read Stardust and see how it compares to the movie.

  15. Hi,

    Oooh, lovely list! Hee hee, mine could have been longer if I'd read yours before posting! ;)

    At least your blogfest date didn't shift forward a week, and thanks for hosting it.

  16. What a great idea for a blogfest! You have a huge list, too. I haven't seen a few of them. Good luck!

  17. Hi Madeleine

    I will try and get something posted before the end of 3rd! I looked through your list and reckon I have only read 10 of them (shame on me) and I have seen 16 of the films. Well it's got me thinking anyway!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Wow, that's a great list. Some of those I've only seen the movie and not read the book, like Rabbit Proof Fence and The Boy In The Striped Pajamas. Didn't know those were novels. I'll have to check them out.

    Thanks for hosting such a fun blogfest!

  19. Thanks for hosting this blogfest! My list is up.

    Awesome list! I enjoyed Angela's Ashes and want to watch the movie. My "To Read" and "To Watch" lists are getting long...

    ReplyDelete
  20. This is a very fun blogfest, Madeleine. I've seen a lot of those same movies. I love Thomas Hardy, one of my favorite writers, and Anne of Green Gables probably inspired me to be a writer way back when. I still have the book my grandmother gave me, and I still read it from time to time.

    ReplyDelete
  21. What a fun blogest! You even got me to join! Will post my own list tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  22. This is such a fun, great idea! I have to start making my list!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Hey there - taking the blogfest tour to get some ideas before I make my post.

    I haven't read many from your list - let's see:
    Harry Potter - read 2.5, seen none
    Election - seen it, haven't read it
    Romeo and Juliet - seen it and read it.
    Lion, Witch, and the wardrobe - only read it.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Great idea and impressive list! Love your avatar.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Great idea for a blogfest. I've been holding off seeing the Lovely Bones until I read the book. I prefer to read the books first.

    ReplyDelete
  26. In your list there are only 3 that I both read the book and seen the film.
    The Road, Pride and Prejudice (saw every version that I'm aware of though not the derivatives, and Romeo and Juliet.

    There's a lot on your list.

    Thanks for hosting.

  27. How fun! But, my list is short! I'd better get reading/watching. :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Wow this has to be my biggest blogfest ever. How exciting. Thanks everyone for joining in. It's fascinating seeing what pairings are out there, those films/novels I didn't know about.

    Thanks JC sorry I got the date wrong for your blogfest. I have amended the post accordingly.

    Ahem, Milo you'll see my comments about The Road tomorrow. I loved the film Stardust better than the novel and wished i'd been able to see the TV series of Neverwhere. It's time for a remake I think.

    Thanks Tammy, you can see the full cloth figure on my website.

  29. Interesting idea for a blogfest. I'll be posting mine tomorrow. I'm surprised at how long my list is!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I'm glad I saw this blogfest before it's over! I'll get onto my list this evening :-)

    ReplyDelete
  31. I've forgotten that I've seen AND read a few of those!!! (and I've finally got something up for the blogfest - so sorry for the delay!) I think I'm going to have to copy your list and hit my local library. Thanks to Netflix... :) The film adaptations should just be a click away!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Great list, Madeleine! I forget To Kill A Mockingbird and Romeo and Juliet on mine.
    Thanks so much for this super fun blogfest!!!

  35. Hi Madeleine

    Finally I have managed to post my list - bit skin of the teeth, but it was fun remembering the films I have seen over the last many years.

    Great Blogfest - thanks for hosting and I am so pleased it has been such a wonderful success.
