Good Movies based on Novels/Books? Genre - Romance?

I have already watched

A walk to remember

The Last Song

Twilight series

Dear John

Nights in Rodanthe

The Notebook

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.
