From pg. 73:
Unbelievably, I saw his dark eyes fill with tears before he turned his head to walk to the window, to stare at the dirty, busy street far below. He squinted and shielded his face with this hands as if he had a headache.

Top Ten Best/Worst Movie Adaptations
This is actually hard because I don't watch that many movies. I'm terrible, and the movies I do watch are usually not based on YA books. So in the spirit of that, I'm going to move away from the YA roots of this blog and just pick movies where I have read both the book and seen the movie. There are not many.
One of my favorite movies, and it's based on an awesome book. A totally updated and modernized telling of Emma.
The movie was actually better than the book. That doesn't happen often.
Another one of my all-time favorite movies. The short story was also so memorable. I read it years before the movie came out, and it stuck with me for a long time.
One of the rare times where I read the book soon after seeing the series. I won't do that again. I liked the book, but loved the movie. It may have something to do with that cast!
I don't know which I liked more. They were both really well done. Except Renee Zelwiger's fake British accent. That was pretty bad.
I thought the movie was well done, and fun. The book was much better though.
I enjoyed the movie, but it was nothing compared to the book.
One of my all time favorite books. The movie was awesome and that cast was epic. It just didn't capture the emotion of the book. Still very well done.
It's not that the movie was bad, it just wasn't great. I think my main issue is that I didn't really like Rob P. and K. Stew in the roles. I actually kind of hated the idea of K. Stew as soon as they announced that she had the lead.
This book wrecked me. The movie was super sad, and I still cried, but nothing compared to the book. I also hated the CGI.
