There are two books that are being made into movies which I am excited about. Like I've said before, I love to read! I like anything from a good romance novel, to an edge-of-your-seat Mystery, or even a book about the supernatural (i.e. vamps and whatnot). I love when a book is made into a movie because it can bring to life what you've imagined while reading. Nine times out of ten a movie can't live up to the book, but on occasion it does. For example... the Harry Potter series or The Notebook.
This summer one of the more recent books I've read is being made into a movie-- EAT, PRAY, LOVE.
I love that it is a true story of one woman's journey from divorce and being at what she feels like is the very bottom to finding her way back from the edge. She spends one year traveling to three different countries. She begins in Italy where she eats her way through pasta and wine. She then heads to India to an Ashram where she has a spiritual rebirth, if you will. And finally, she head to Indonesia where she learns she can love once again.
I had a tough time with the "Pray" section of the book. I kept wanting to skip ahead but I stayed the course and I'm glad I did. (I'm not really a yogi so...)
Julia Roberts plays the main character and it looks like it should be a really good book to movie adaptation.
The second book that I absolutely love which is being made into a movie is Water for Elephants.
The actor chosen to play Jacob is none other than Robert Pattinson. The person hired to play his love interest is one of my all time favorites, Reese Witherspoon.
