Eat, Pray, Love. I know, I know....so cliche. The book and movie are quite different and there are many parts (as in most book-to-movie-adaptations) that are left out. However. Julia Roberts? Good. Javier Bardem? Good. Watching a few hours of great food, beautiful scenery, and living vicariously through Ms. Roberts and her many gorgeous suitors? Worth the price of a movie ticket.
Another fav movie adaptation:
Each movie version of Stephanie Meyer's series keeps getting better and better....and the men keep getting hotter and hotter.
And finally, I loved this movie adaptation.
Again, the movie is different from the book as it eliminated a few parts and essentially re-wrote the ending, but the movie was great and the chemistry between the two characters was perfect (or maybe that was just my boyfriend Channing Tatum).
Most Unexpected Good Read 2010.
The writing is not great, I had to keep looking back at characters as they were not well developed, and because they were not well developed....I just didn't care about them. The book club was unanimous on hating the book and a few of the book club members didn't even finish it because of their ambiguity towards to book. Give this one a miss.
Besides the last one, it was a great year for books!
