Choose a theme. Then list 13 things that fit that theme.
Here are the books I looked for and read after watching the dramatizations of the book or related works.

  2. Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
  3. Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
  4. Dune series by Frank Herbert
  5. Firestarter by Stephen King
  6. Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
  7. Kane and Abel by Jeffrey Archer
  8. Pollyanna by Eleanor H. Porter
  9. Practical Magic by Alice Hoffman
  10. The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien
  11. The Last of the Mohicans by James Fenimore Cooper
  12. The Neverending Story by Michael Ende
  13. The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett


  1. I've read some of them, I think about 5...love your list!

  2. I've read a few of these. I didn't realize Kane and Abel was dramatized. I'll have to look for it.

  3. Most of the ones on this list that I saw, I read first.

    Mine is here

  4. Great list! I've read some of them, I've watched most of them ;)

  5. I always wantend to read the Last of the Mohicans but never got around to it.

  6. I've had Lord of the Rings sitting on my shelf for I don't know how long. I really need to remedy that. Great post. Happy T13!

  7. How do they measure up to the feature film?

    Happy TT

    Shasher's Life: 13 of my Nicknames

  8. Some really popular choices.

    Have a great Thursday!

  9. You have some good books on your list.

  10. There are a lot of great movies on your list.

  11. Firestarter more so than any of King's other books? Interesting! How come?

  12. Did you like the book or the movie better? I usually like the book better, but a few times I've found myself preferring the film adaptation.

    Nice list.

  13. The books are always so much better. I see you have a liking for fantasy? With so many wonderful authors out there it is a shame there are not more trilogies and series being made into movies but reading is always best. Have you ever read Anne McCaffery she is awesome~

  14. 1, 4, 6, 8, 11 and 13 I have read. I think I read most before I saw the movies, though. I am always so disappointed with movies made from books. Books are just so much better.

  15. Hi Shelley

    Kane and Abel was actually a mini-series. I counted this as well. :-)

  16. @ Shash and Izzybella,
    For #2, #3 and #11, I actually liked the films more than the book. For the rest, the books were way better.

  17. Hi Janet

    Why Firestarter ? How to explain ... well I'd avoided Stephen King's movies and books for years before that because I get nightmares from horror movies. LOL.

    Then, my brother convinced me to read The Drawing of the Three. I read it, loved it and started picking up other King books as I went along. Then, I saw the Firestarter movie on TV and wanted to read this book in particular.

  18. I have wanted to read Practical Magic ever since I saw the movie. I just forget to put it on my list!
