Stuff and Nonsense: Top 10 Tuesday: Books to Film


Top 10 Tuesday: Books to Film

This week's Top Ten Tuesday is all about film adaptations we're looking forward to watching. I'm going to risk your censure here and confess that sometimes I don't read the book before I watch the movie and I don't automatically think all film adaptations are inferior to their literary parent. So there goes all my bookish street cred!

Far From the Madding Crowd (2015)

The Jungle Book (2016)

Lady Chatterley's Lover (2015 BBC series)

Madame Bovary (2015)

Partners In Crime (2015 BBC series based on Agatha Christie’s Tommy and Tuppence characters)

Poldark (2015 BBC series)

Carol (The Price of Salt)

A Walk the Woods

I'm also looking forward to watching MaddAddam (TBA HBO series adaptation of Margaret Atwood's speculative fiction Oryx and Crake, The Year of the Flood and MaddAddam) and A Monster Calls (probably out sometime in 2016).


  1. I hadn't seen that Jungle Book trailer before but it looks fantastic! That's definitely going on my list of must see movies. I really enjoyed the Poldark TV series, I've not read the books but the show was great

  2. Nice list!! I realize now that I forgot to add The Book Thief to my list this week too as I still have to read this book or watch the movie adaptation.

    Here's a link to my TTT post for this week:

  3. Poldark was amazing! I really enjoyed the show - I've got the book on hold for myself at the library. Now it's just a waiting game.
