Veronika Decides to Die - Paulo Coelho
Adapted to: Veronika Decides To Die (2009)

Sarah Michelle Gellar as Veronika

Personal note: Sarah Michelle Gellar has nothing in common with my Veronika, but I look foward to seeing how she will impersonate one of my favorite characters.. Too bad the film is not yet released.

Personal note part 2: Okay, so I've finally watched it. All I could think afterward was WTF?? Seriously, I think they couldn't have done a worse job on it even if they tried.

Bridget Jones's Diary - Helen Fielding
Sequel: Bridget Jones: The Edge Of Reason
Adapted to: Bridget Jone's Diary (2001) and Bridget Jones: The Edge Of Reason (2004)

Renée Zellweger as Bridget Jones | Hugh Grant as Daniel Clever
and Colin Firth as Mark Darcy

Personal Note: I've watched the films about a hundred times before starting to read the book... I tried really hard to picture them on my own but I can only see the actors..

PS, I Love You - Cecelia Ahern
Adapted to: P.S.: I Love You (2007)

Hillary Swank as Holly and Gerard Butler as Gerry

Personal Note: I read the book first, but it had the actors in the cover... Holly always had Hillary Swank's face to me, but since I was not familiar with Butler's face, Gerry looked completely different in my head...

I think this movie was beautifully made, the actors had a good chemistry together and it definitely doesn't go to my 'please leave this book alone' mental list. ;)

The Kite Runner - Khaled Hosseini
Adapted to: The Kite Runner (2007)

Ahmad-Khan-Mahmoodzada as Hassan and Zekeria-Ebrahimi as Amir

Personal note: Definetly not what I had in mind, but I might change my mind after I watch the movie, there aren't really a lot of pictures of these young actors around...

Twilight - Stephenie Meyer
Sequels: New Moon | Eclipse | Breaking Dawn
Adapted to: Twilight (2008)

Kristen Stewart as Bella Swan | Robert Pattinson as Edward Cullen
and Taylor Lautner as Jacob Black.

Personal Note: The movie was already out when I read the book, but I refused to know further about the casting before I finished it. The only actor whose face matched the image I had of the character was Taylor Lautner. When I first saw him I was really shocked to see how much he looked like the Jacob Black of my imagination.

Check out my Twilight Saga: New Moon - Movie Cast list for more Twilight cast.

Adapted to: Marley & Me (2008)

Owen Wilson as John Grogan and Jennifer Aniston as Jennifer Grogan.

Personal note: I had every intention of waiting to read the book before looking for pictures but I couldn't help myself and watched the movie first =x

The Devil Wears Prada: A Novel - Lauren Weisberger
Adapted to: The Devil Wears Prada (2006)

Maryl Streep as Miranda Priestly and Anne Hathaway as Andy Sachs

Personal note: I haven't read this one yet but I'm pretty sure It'll be hard to imagine other faces to these characters...

You're reading a book and loving it. You have a very clear image in your mind of how the characters look like and how is the sound of their voices. Then Hollywood comes along and turns that book into a movie. Did they get the right people to play your beloved book characters?!
