From the Page to the Screen – A Book List

Hello, my epic and awesome bookworms!

How’s hangin’?

I’m good. The weather has been up and down. Rainy and snowy (which sucks). It’s supposed to be spring! I’ve discovered that I’m really into the trend of cacti. Don’t know why. Well, actually, it may relate to me being as prickly as a cactus. Kidding!And I’m on my sixth bag of jelly beans, but I can’t help it! The Sweet Tart Jellies are sooooo good. They do that thing where they rub my tongue raw, though.

Anyway, I have the monthly book list! This time I went with one that could stir up debate: the best book turned movie. There are a lot of favorites out there. I took some time to get some and have compiled a list. You be the judge!
