Why I Love Wednesday!

Why I Love Wednesdays…Book turned into a movie/tv show

Reflections of a Bookaholic

Mocha Girl Alexis from Reflections of a Bookaholic started a Wednesday Meme called Why I Love Wednesday.  What is a Meme you ask?  According to wikipedia…The term “Internet meme” refers to a catchphrase or concept that spreads rapidly from person to person via the Internet, largely through Internet-based email, blogs, forums, Imageboards, social networking sites and instant messaging.  Basically, a topic from the meme host (Alexis) is posted on participating blogs with blog authors (me) answering it on their site (here).

The topic this Wednesday is… Book turned into a movie/tv show

This one was easy for me.  Years and years ago I lived in Japan and was taking Japanese and study Kimonos.  I studied everything about them, from how to put them on to the various kinds of kimonos for the seasons.  During that time I read Memoirs of a Geisha.  And I loved it!!

I moved back to the US at the same time the movie came out.  Needless to say, I saw the movie the minute it came out.  They did a wonderful job adapting the book to the big screen.  The costumes, the locations and the cast did an excellent job.  The movie didn’t let me down at all like most films from novels do.  Most of the time I can’t stand the cast they select because they never match the person I had in mind but this cast knocked it out the park.

    I call this day Wonderful Wednesdays,thank you for sharing Why I Love Wednesdays; I have read three books that have reached the big screen:
    Precious, Eat,Pray,Love and The Help; I enjoyed and loved the movie “The Help” Precious and Eat,Pray,Love was okay

    • I loved Precious too! I never read Eat Pray Love but I did see the movie. I thought it was cute. I should go back and read it. I am so happy you like it. Thanks to Alexis for starting this.

  • I have the book, never read it. Rented the movie, never watched it. I might have to do one or the other just to compare notes with you. 🙂

  • Oooh I remember watching this one. Wasn’t my most favorite movie but it was interesting. I’ve never read the book though.

  • reading rendezvous reviewz

    If my daughter watch that movie ONE more time, just ONE more time, the DVD will do a Disappearing Act.

    • Sidne I can always give you my address and you can send it to me. LOL!!!! 😀

  • I’ve never seen the movie or read the book. I’m adding it to my list though.
