Ten of My Favourite Movies That Were Based on Books

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week's topic is a movies freebie, so I've decided to list ten of my favourite films that were based on books. I've included miniseries as well, because there were a few that I couldn't not include. There were quite a few others I could have included, but here are ten films/miniseries that I really like and could watch over and over again:
  1. Sense and Sensibility (1995)
  2. Wives and Daughters (1999)
  3. Les Miserables (2012)
  4. The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1996)
  5. North and South (2004)
  6. The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (2010)
  7. Cranford (2007)
  8. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007)
  9. Ballet Shoes (2007)
  10. Little Women (1994)


  1. S&S95 was almost on my list too. It's beautiful, and Emma Thompson is one of my absolute favorite actresses. Brilliant woman, and she did such a great job with the screenplay.

    Les Mis -- soooooo achingly good. I can only watch it once in a great while, though. Too many feels.

    Cranford!!! I love Cranford :-) Delightful series.

    And ahhhhhhhhhh, there is no movie quite like that particular Little Women. I watched it over and over as a kid, and now my daughters love it too. I think I'll put the soundtrack on this morning, now that I'm thinking of it thanks to your post.

    1. Yes!! Actually, I've only watched Les Mis once or twice, I've just listened to it so many times that it seems like a lot more. But I probably should watch it again sometime, when I'm in the mood for it :)

  2. Oh my goodness Les Mis and Little Women! The music and the tears! Such good choices.

  3. Such a fantastic list! I'm so glad I'm not the only one who loves Les Mis. It's such a powerful musical, the songs stick with you for days afterward.
