Movie to book?

Last night my hubby and I watched the movie The Invention of Lying via DVD and a thought came to mind ... This would be an interesting book ...which led me to wonder... Are there books based on movies?  I'm a recent bookworm so I haven't come across any (I think) that was a movie first before the book. 

I'm curious ... does anyone know of any book that was a movie first?  If so, which ones and what are your thoughts on it.  Usually (speaking of book to movie), I find the book version better than it's film adaptation.  I'm curious how it is on the flip side.  ~Thanks.

Play the video for the blurb ... intriguing.  ~I would give this movie 3.5 stars.


  1. Great question! I've wondered this myself.

  2. I think they do sometimes have book based off of movies,but they are novelizations of things that happened in the movie. I don't think they actually change anything. They do have series like Star Wars that have novelizations of other characters or themes in the movies.

  3. This is such a clever, funny movie, isn't it? Hardly anyone's seen it though, making it a sweet little gem. As for movie-to-book adaptations, I only know of novelizations--basically the movie retold in as few words as possible ;) Good question, though. I wonder...

  4. The movie Red Riding Hood just hit theaters. The novel that is also in stores right now is based on the screen play.


Thank you for taking the time to write a comment. You are fabulous! :)
