Good Movies based on Novels/Books? Genre - Romance?
I have already watched
A walk to remember
The Last Song
Nights in Rodanthe
The Lucky One
Please suggest anything other than the above... I like movies where there is a beautiful romance between the main lead with some twists... but should make me feel like i am watching a nice movie where i can emotionally be invested and enjoy the movie. Just some light hearted feel good romantic movies.
Already seen "Never Let Me go"
"Shakespeare in Love"
"Letters to Juliet"
The Princess Diaries
The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants
Bridget Jones Diaries 1,2
Confessions of a Shopaholic
