    "I'm a sucker for romance movies as well as reading. I read A Walk to Remember so I figured I should watch the movie. The movie is a little bit different from the book, but I like it nonetheless. There were a couple changes in the movie from the book that I wish they put in the movie, but overall it wasn't bad at all."

    "The 2014 film adaptation of John Green's novel is amazing. It stayed faithful to the book while also becoming its own entity that can be separated from the novel. One is not better than the other as they are both impressive. Highly recommended."

    "After watching the 2012 adaptation of Anna Karenina a while back, I became interested in reading the original source material to see how well it holds up in comparison. Since the original version is a massive 864 pages in size, I opted to read this abridged 132 page abridged version instead. After all, I don't have a lot of spare time for reading as I'd like these days. This I feel was a mistake, however, as the abridged version turned out to be pretty meh even by the movie's standards. It's almost 4th grade level translation of great literature or something. I definitely wasn't impressed, and I suppose I'll just have to bite the bullet and read the original 800+ text sometime instead."

    "I absolutely love this book. I am so glad they made it into a movie and I can't wait to see it. The characters are so believeable and the relationship they have is so modern. I loved reading their stories and becoming part of their journey. "

    "This book have a traditional fury beast that was pretty good and predictable. It have some total cheesy and love moments that makes easy to read. There were moments in this story when I just wanted to snuggle the characters with love."

    "The book definitely sounds like it would make a great movie, but as of yet it is only optioned by Summit Entertainment. The author herself is not sure if or when it will be fully realized and developed into a movie as of yet, but it is assuredly being worked on somewhere at Summit. As for IF it would make a good movie, absolutely!

They soon find out they were secretly preparing their whole lives for a magical showdown in that circus, and along the way fall in love! "

    "Pride and Prejudice is a classic. I think it's probably on every must read list. Jane Austen is an amazing writer and you won't be bored with this book at all. Even if you aren't into books written back in the "olden times", you will probably enjoy this one."

    "This is definitely one of the better romance novels that was then subsequently turned into a movie. I really enjoyed the novel much more than the movie (which is fairly rare these days). The author, JoJo Moyes, has written a number of other books in her career but this is definitely one of her best books. I found that I enjoyed the book much more while I was in the process of reading it but the book didn't really remain with me after I finished it which is why I am only giving it a "4". I would definitely recommend picking this up if you need a good and entertaining read this summer. "

    "I love romantic movies and am always watching them. Often when a movie is based on a book I find the movie to be much worse than the book. But that wasn't the case at all for "Unbearable Lightness of Being." It was one of my favorite books and I feel like the movie truly brought the book to life allowing us to delve deeply into the character's heads and understand their feelings. I loved it and thought it was great overall!"

    "Hauntingly accurate novel about the human condition, particularly for those who have struggled trying to conceive. Also, the story serves as a reminder that morality is relative, and helps us examine our own thoughts and choices in this scenario laid out."
