About Me

My photo

My Blog SCRIBBLE AND EDIT reflects my love of creative writing, design, literature and film. Check out my Poems & haiku, Romantic Flash Fiction; Blogfest Entries; Blog Awards and other prose and Flash Fiction. Do bear with me, as I will reciprocate with those genuine commenters on my blog.  BTW I sometimes withhold comments for challenges until later. Comments about the post are much appreciated. Thank you.
Comments based on others' comments can lead to misunderstandings that spread like whispers!

The only SURE way for me to follow you back is if you leave a comment. However, if your Blog has a black background and white writing then it makes my eyes squiffy...

Novel Films II #3

DAY 3: Have you read any novels where you have yet to see the films/ TV adaptations? Or seen any films where you are keen to read the original novel? 

I have done a lot of catching up since Novel Films Blogfest 1 in 2011, such as reading The Rotters Club; Adjustment Bureau; The Firm; Stormbrfeaker; About A Boy.

While I found I couldn't get into Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe by Fannie Flagg and The Other Boelyn Girl by Philippa Gregory

I have seen The Hobbit; Never Let Me Go; Neverwhere
but I have yet to see the film of The Handmaid's Tale or read:
The Blindside by Michael Lewis
The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd
The Colour Purple by Alice Walker
Brick Lane by by Monica Ali
K-Pax by Gene Brewer
The Devil Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger
Matilda by Roald Dahl

Oh and discovered I have read and seen Anna of the Five Towns by Alan Bennett, though sadly this is not available on DVD

How about you? 

I'd like to thank everyone who has supported this 3 day Blogfest.  
Bless you all and of course
Misha for co-hosting during my family crises.
