It made things like TV static, swimming pools, big old trees, kitchen chairs, and clown dolls seem terrifying.

As a 19-year-old in Akron, Ohio, I somehow ended up with a copy of Anne Rice's The Witching Hour.

Taylor Swift is NOT expanding her “Bad Blood” music video into a movie and comic book series, despite a wholly fabricated story by a site that seemingly spends more time making up stories than fact-checking. There has always been a special connection between literature and cinema; both art forms borrow from each other.

Here are more updates on books which are being made into movies in 2015 whose release dates are yet to be announced. These tales by Lehane, Perrotta, and more—whether in words or on screen—will keep you occupied and entertained all summer. For purist readers, it’s important that books are absorbed in full before one even considers seeing the story unfold on screen.
Also by Dubus III is Garden of Last Days, which was almost made into a movie until that curious fellow James Franco dropped out of the project. Neuroscientist and writer Lisa Genova self-published Still Alice, which tells the story of Alice Howland, a Harvard professor who suffers from early-onset Alzheimer’s.
Paul Newman stars in the film version of this novel written by Barry Reed—David Mamet wrote the screenplay.

Boston magazine partnered with The New England Board of Higher Education to teach readers about the vast educational options in the area.
As a parent, I love the convenience of audiobooks and I think they are a wonderful way to develop listening skills of children aged three years and up. When purchasing audiobooks for children listen to the free snippet of audio, check the age recommendation and read the reviews for each story to make sure that the version is a reading that you will enjoy listening to (not all audio recording styles suit everyone) and that is appropriate for your children – the latter is especially important for stories you are unfamiliar with.
We have a secondhand iPod loaded only with songs and stories that Immy is allowed to listen to which encourages her to listen independently. I have also loaded our stories onto my iPhone and our iPad as back up for when we are out and about. One genre of books (if you can call it that!) that Immy particularly enjoys is books that have been made into movies. Getting to know the story first can also be a great way to help judge if you think your child is ready for the movie version yet.
However you choose to enjoy them, here are 10 popular children’s books that have been transformed into successful movies. A great first introduction to audio books for children from about 3 ?-4 years of age who are able to listen attentively beyond the pages of a picture book. The Little Mermaid is a great starting point for discussion about the differences between books and movies – how will the life of The Little Mermaid change following her first visit to world above the ocean where she meets a handsome human Prince, and falls in love? Somehow the nasty old witches don’t seem so scary for younger children in the audio book version of The Wizard of Oz!
The classic fairytale of Cinderella, treated as a servant by her nasty stepmother and step sisters, her life is transformed when she meets a very special fairy godmother and a wonderful prince.
A forgotten wardrobe becomes the pathway to adventure and intrigue as four children step into another time and place – a magical world of fauns, dwarves, and giants, of animals that talk and horses that fly: the land of Narnia. Sixth grader Greg Heffley doesn’t understand his annoying younger brother, obnoxious older one, or well-meaning parents. Hiccup was a truly extraordinary Viking Hero, Warrior chieftain, awesome sword-fighter and amateur naturalist.
The unhappy tale of three unlucky children, magnets of misfortune, who encounter a greedy and repulsive villain, itchy clothing, a disastrous fire, a plot to steal their fortune, and cold porridge for breakfast! Christie Burnett is an early childhood teacher, presenter, writer and the editor of Childhood 101. They are great for car trips or when kids have to wait and my kids who struggle to wind down before sleep use them often.
Prior to our last car trip I hadn’t been able to get my girls interested in audio books.
My oldest daughter has listened to a few audio books, but I had completely forgotten about using these.
We have ipods for all our kids now (the older ones got them for birthdays but the younger ones we bought secondhand specifically for stories) and a dock in each bedroom, but we’ve found headphones work really well, especially for our four year old as he is less distracted by what is going on around him if he has the headphones on and really gets into the stories. My Take: Last year, along with my book club, I joined what felt like the rest of the world and read the phenomenon that was The Help (click title for my review).
Having read the book only last year, it was still pretty fresh in our minds so I was pleased to see that the movie really didn't change the story line much like some movies do. Bottom line, there aren't a lot of movies out there that have an almost all female cast and this one does, and it does it well.
We are always looking for good movies for us to share on Family Movie Night and you just gave me a shoe bunch of ideas. Seeing as books are always so much better, I have got to get a hold of some of those books. This week, Alice Gregory and Charles McGrath discuss the best literature that's succeeded on the big screen.
One day just before his eleventh birthday, an owl tries to deliver a mysterious letter—the first of a sequence of events that end in Harry meeting a giant man named Hagrid.
Browse a list of books tagged "books made into movies" by our club members to find the best books made into movies. A lot of books are being made into movies right now and some are scheduled to hit the theatres next year. Somehow, in his attempt to exorcise ghosts, contain witches and bind boggarts, he is tricked into freeing Mother Malkin who is the most evil witch in the County.
The Pemberton’s intense, passionate marriage starts to unravel when Serena finds out that she can’t have children while George has an illegitimate son. After working in digital advertising for over 4 years, I decided to explore something of my own and started WomenPulse wherein I blog about everything related to beauty, makeup tips, fashion, lifestyle etc. After all, half the fun is comparing and contrasting afterward. Here then, are some book–movie and book–TV show combos to put to the test.
Here are just a few to consider queuing on your reading list, including The Drop, which comes out in August, with a film adaptation slated for September.
The dark and tragic story full of desperation was a National Book Award finalist in print, and Connelly and Kingsley were both nominated for Oscars for their performances on screen. The story is told from the perspective of the patient, as Alice loses her way running through Harvard Square, shows up to a class she teaches thinking that she is one of her students, and eventually loses grasp of who her own children are. Newman plays lawyer Frank Galvin, who tries to save his career by taking a controversial malpractice suit to court, taking on the Catholic Church and city of Boston in the process. Higgins has several characters who resembled real-life criminals at the time including Whitey and his gang.

To earn money to pay his daughter’s medical bills, he takes part in a reality game show where the goal is to stay alive. Bear in mind, however, that just as the game of blackjack depends on a strong poker face and deception, so does this book. Luttrell’s team of Navy SEALs were surrounded by Taliban forces in Afghanistan, and he was the lone survivor.
We reserve the right to remove impersonators or personal attacks, threats, profanity, or flat-out offensive comments. Night one brings us The Cue, a 12-mixologist cocktail shakedown complemented by the best BBQ in town.


I truly began to appreciate them when Immy was about 3 ? years old and transitioning from a daily nap time to quiet time. I would also recommend purchasing a small, child friendly speaker (see the koala above) and a set of child headphones.
Or alternatively, try listening to the audio version of the story after watching the film – your child will have to use attentive listening skills to discover the differences between the two mediums! He needs Aladdin to do a very special job – climb down into a deep, dark cave to fetch an oil lamp…what magic awaits? But he knows enough to record his daily thoughts in a manly journal – not some girly diary. Meet the four very different March sisters – Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy – and enjoy stories of their family life in a small New England community. More importantly, she is a Mum who believes wholeheartedly in the value of children learning through play, the importance of quality early education, and the togetherness of family. If you are new here, you might like to subscribe to the RSS feed or receive updates direct to your email. I have been giving audio books some greater thought of late because I know my little girl would absolutely love it. We are about to go on a road trip and I’ve been thinking audiobooks might be good – I will be trying some of these out for sure! I haven’t used them for me for sleep, but definitely during nap time with my daughter. However when their DVD player stopped working and I needed something to get us to our destination I put on the Winnie the Pooh series and they loved it. We are a HUGE fan of audio books although I mostly subscribe to a favourite service (Sparkle Stories) and buy them on CD. From their improbable alliance a remarkable sisterhood emerges, instilling all of them with the courage to transcend the lines that define them, and the realization that sometimes those lines are made to be crossed —even if it means bringing everyone in town face-to-face with the changing times.
For stunning scenes that bring you back to the 1960s that combine both heart and humor, this is a movie that you can't miss! However, this list will be great to help us pick different movies as we make our way through the alphabet on our Movie and Popcorn night.
I don't want to!" kids hurling, sad baby crying the whole time because all he wanted was to nurse, yet every time he did, it came right back up.
Supposedly Robert Mitchum, who stars as Eddie Coyle in the film, even wanted to meet with Whitey, and dined with guys like Howie Winter and John Martorano. For an insightful look, and some digs, at the privileged Bostonians of George Apley’s day, look no further. Night two brings back Battle of the Burger for the fifth year, featuring the ultimate burger competition between the top 25 burgers in town, as voted on by the public.
Since then they have become a feature of regular daily life here – we (sometimes they are playing for all of us to hear, sometimes Immy listens alone) listen in the car, as we eat breakfast, during playtime in the playroom, on planes (maybe not as regularly as the others!), during quiet time on weekends, and even, sometimes, when we go walking. The headphones are great for travelling and for times when you (and other family members) would prefer not to listen! The app is easy to use and I find it especially handy for syncing stories (be they mine or the kids!) between devices. They both love the how to train your dragon movie so we might try a little of the audio book soon. The kids listen to them in the car, and my preschooler is happy to stay sitting quietly in the car whilst I transfer my (by then) sleeping toddler into her bed. So far I have only used Audible for books for myself – why didn’t I think to look for kids books?! I found all of the characters to bring something to the multi-faceted book but for me, my personal favorite was Celia, the outcast woman branded 'white trash' by the rest of the Jackson society gals for her 'husband-stealing' ways. Emma Stone did a great job as the civil rights rousing Skeeter (although for the love of God, couldn't they have made her hair look less like an awful wig in some of those scenes), Bryce Dallas Howard had everyone in the audience hating her as Hilly Holbrock, Octavia Spencer's expressive eyes made her the best Minnie ever, and of course Viola Davis played a wonderful Aibileen.
Gossip Girl Blake Lively has an, um, interesting Boston accent in this movie, which also includes appearancestors by local rap artist Slaine. This is great for teaching her to be discerning with her media consumption – once we have seen the movie we will talk about the differences between the story and the movie and why these differences exist.
I did actually know that Dorothy’s shoes were silver because we were just listening to the unabridged version of Wizard of Oz earlier this week!
I would be remiss if I didn't mention my personal favorite from the book Celia played fabulously by Jessica Chastain (if I could have her entire wardrobe from the movie I would!) and Alison Janney as Skeeter's mom had some fabulously funny one-liners. Robert De Niro portrays an old flame in the film version of The Good House, still in development.
For example, did you know that Dorothy’s magical shoes were originally silver, they were changed to red by the Hollywood screenwriter of the 1939 movie version of The Wizard of Oz.
However, my favorite character was Minnie, because she said whatever she felt, even though it got her in a lot of hot water, so to speak. So far I’ve found that the unabridged versions are so much better than many of the newer (often dumbed down) versions. And the author was such a good writer, I grew to hate Hilly, so I guess the movie did a good job with her too, the way it sounds.
I probably won't see it until it comes out in DVD, then I will run to the store and buy it and watch it.
So during the sick week, I was on Facebook quite a bit more though, documenting the horrors of norovirus, and checking in to see what allllll my friends were doing. I mean, what else is there to do when you're laying on the couch under a baby who won't stop spewing?
Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules by Jeff KinneyThe movie is being released this Friday, but it's a quick read, so you have plenty of time to read it with your kids! Everyone spewing the same rhetorical, copy, paste, share share share, vaguebook, whinebook, blah blah blah. There were maybe two things that actually caught my eye, but for the most part, it was all the same blather. Of course, quirkymomma shared a ton of craft stuff that I would love to do, but don't have the supplies to do, and don't have the room to put the supplies after we are done (tiny apartment living, y'all). So I made a decision to limit my Facebook, which I did, a little, Mostly instead of Facebook, I read on my kindle app.
