My sister does not have a very high opinion of the "Loves Comes Softly" movies. I enjoy them, but from what little of the books I have read in the series there is a difference.

Grace-We grew up reading the books and by the time the movies came out I had heard and read the books several times. The movies are ok as long as I view them as a completely different story, which they are since very little is the same in the books and movies except some of the names.

The Hunger Games and A Walk to Remember are on my list as well. Thanks for sharing!

On the Love Comes Softly Series, I got to the point (around the 3rd movie) that I just had to tell myself that the only thing in common with the books were the main character's name and the title. Once I told myself that, I was fine. And I enjoy (and own) each of the movies.

I have enjoyed the prequel films though (Love Begins, Love's Everlasting Courage) and the Christmas one. Of course there was no book to compare it to.

Understandable. If someone did a movie about one of my favorite Christian Fiction books, and it wasn't the same...not very good.

Completely agree with the Love Comes Softly Series - they're nothing like the books just a whole new story with people sharing names.
Walk to Remember is a good one, the book sure made me cry though.
