Monday Recommend a........

Recommend A...... is sponsored by Chick Loves Lit .  Every Monday, I just recommend one book that meets the weekly criteria! Hooray!

This week's prompt is recommend a:

Book that was better than the movie

Like this is hard! I have a lot to choose from  since, most of the time, the book is better than the movie. However, there is one that I feel very strongly about and it’s because I love the book so, so much and the movie just didn’t evoke the feelings that the book did.  So my choice for a book that was way, way better than the movie is…..

Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

I love this book so much and the movie just didn't elicit the same feelings as the book.  Now, I love Rob and I think he did a great job as Edward, but there were so many key scenes that were a disappointment to me.  Meadow scene, anyone?  Also, the special effects were just so campy.  I would love to see a re-make of this one.  But, then again, they might ruin it even more so maybe I'll just keep re-reading Chapter 13 instead.

What about you?  Which movie did you think was a bad version of a book you loved?  Did you feel the same way about Twilight?
