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.

Day 17: Favorite quote from your favorite book

The Bible

I love God’s Word! Although there are many beautiful scriptures that I’ve memorized overtime, Proverbs 18:10 will always be my go-to when I need comfort/strength.

The Three Musketeers

All for one, and one for all! I love this motto because Athos, Aramis, Porthos, and d’Artagnan stayed loyal to each other through everything.

What was one of your first moneymaking jobs (other than babysitting or newspaper delivery)?

That’ll be holding down the fort at Vie de France. The establishment is no more here (it’s still going strong wherever branches might be located), but I valued the time waitressing. I also learned to make my first omelet there and I was introduced to Chicken Alfredo.
