Day 19: Favorite book turned into a movie

A few posts back, I mentioned that if I watch the movie I won’t read the book and vice versa. Let’s see if I can list a few books.

The Help by Kathryn Stockett

When I first read this book, I told my friend that it would make a good movie. Two years later, a movie came out and I enjoyed it. Octavia Spencer was splendid and Viola Davis ran away with my heart and emotions. Legend has it that I am still looking for it up to this day. 😉

The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas

I am certain that by now, you’re tired of seeing this book pop up, but it was a huge part of my childhood! There are countless versions of this book in movie format, but the 1993 adaptation will always have my heart.

The Firm by John Grisham

I love this book! It was the book that introduced me to this law thrilling author and I couldn’t put it down. Lots of twists and turns as we read about crooked attorneys and great main character development.

This was the book that started it all for Grisham and with Tom Cruise starring in the film adaptation only put the icing on the cake for the author. About the movie? Rien à dire.

50 Foods #21: Cassoulet

Origin: Languedoc
Date: 1355
Type: Meat and bean stew

I did some research on the Cassoulet for my food project a few years ago. Food history is really interesting! The Cassoulet is said to be from Languedoc, a former province of France. Who would’ve thought that a simple meat and bean stew from the French countryside would become a huge thing in restaurants worldwide? This dish can also be cooked with duck and pork sausages. One can buy canned Cassoulet in France in groceries and supermarkets.

Would I eat it?: Yes, I’ll eat the chicken Cassoulet. 🙂
