Wednesday Memes!

Reflections of a Bookaholic
...Movies based on Books.

I don't always love them but when they get it right, it's the best thing ever.

One of my favorites, right off the top of my head is The Lion, the Witch and The Wardrobe. I felt that it was really true to the book and pretty much how I imagined it. The length and pacing were absolutely perfect, the cinematography was supreme and the dialogue wasn't dumbed down.

In the same vein, Voyage of the Dawn Treader was a favorite of mine. I was moved to tears as they underscored the spiritual/inspirational aspects of the series without throwing it in your face.



An awesome meme I found on Julia @ That Hapa Chick's page. I've been so inspired by this book, I'm Spiritual, dammit!, I'm reading that I have to include one of the quotes:

"You are exactly where you need to be at every moment."
I can't tell you how much I need to remind myself of this everyday haha! It's a very cool book that I'm plugging through. Will review it as soon as I'm done :)

  1. I think I need to go back in time and be a kid again. I've never read The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe - I'm missing out!

    Have you read and seen "Snow Falling on Cedars"? Your mention of cinematography just reminded me of this one. I watched it again the other night and it is beautiful - but I'd read the book first so you can understand the film more!! (If you haven't already that is!)

    PS: Love the way you've designed your awards, with them scrolling round. You're so clever. How'd you do that?!

    Have a great Wed :)

  2. I loved The Chronicles of Narnia. I haven't yet read the books but I actually really want to. I wasn't that much of a fan of Prince Caspien, but I loved the first movie and the third looks excellent. I need to rent it so I can watch it. Great pick!

  3. Jade I heard that Prince Caspian wasn't the best one...which is weird because I REALLY loved that book in the series! I hope you enjoy it :)

    Book Gatherer When I get a chance tonight, I will email you about it!

  6. "You are exactly where you need to be at every moment."

    I love this, and I have a variation of it printed out and attached to my car's sunvisor. ;)
    It's a good thing to remember.
