Posted 3 August 2021 by Kim in Books in the Wild / 0 Comments


Have you ever read a book because you saw someone in a movie reading it? Not going to lie… I definitely have! This is a list of books found on the silver screen!

the movie: Beautiful Creatures, starring Alden Ehrenreich and Alice Englert

I hated the movie, but the book this movie was based on is great. And so is Slaughterhouse-Five!

the movie:
Conspiracy Theory, starring Julia Roberts and Mel Gibson
The Shining, starring Shelly Duvall and Jack Nicholson
The Good Girl, starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Jennifer Aniston

Good movies, but this book? I know it’s a classic, but I HATED IT!!! Especially ironic… I loved The Good Girl and it is directly inspired by the book.

the movie: The Princess Bride, starring Cary Elwes, Robin Wright, Mandy Patinkin, and Wallace Shawn

Yep. The book is in the movie adaptation of the same book. It’s such a GREAT movie!!

the movie: Donnie Darko, starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Jena Malone, and Drew Barrymore

I love, love, LOVE this movie. Creepy, thought-provoking, and weird. Just like the shorts in this book!

the movie: Hackers, starring Jonny Lee Miller, Angelina Jolie, Jesse Bradford, and Matthew Lillard

Great movie and a fabulous book!
