From Flowing Words to Moving Pictures…

You know that feeling when a book you absolutely adore gets optioned to a film, you know that feeling it’s when you feel finally you can visualize the characters and see a set.  You sit and contemplate about who should be cast as which character, who should write the script, are they going to get the right director, and so on and so on.  The sad part 9 out of 10 times the movie industry never does the book justice.  If you are like me, you get all excited see the movie and then become crushed cause well it totally missed the mark.  There are times, however, when the movie is so perfect that you can’t help but be completely engrossed and captivated.  Today I am going to talk to you about some of my favorite book to film adaptations.

Elena reviews: Back To You by Priscilla Glenn

Back-to-You_Cover-682x1024

The synopsis:

When Lauren Monroe first laid eyes on Michael Delaney back in high school, she had every reason to stay away from him; within minutes of their first encounter, his volatile actions confirmed his notorious reputation. But Lauren saw something in him that caused her to question his bad-boy persona, and against her better judgment, she took a chance. She had no way of knowing that the unlikely friendship they formed would become so important to her.

Or that it would end so painfully.

Eight years later, when Lauren begins her new job at Learn and Grow Day Care, Michael is the last person she expects to see. Refusing to revisit the hurt and confusion of their past, Lauren vows to keep her distance from him. But staying away from Michael proves to be more difficult than she thought, despite her lingering grief and her instincts for self-preservation.

As Lauren and Michael recall the friendship that changed them forever and the events that tore them apart, will they finally be able to heal? Or will the ghosts of Michael’s past prove to be too much to overcome?
