  1. I thought the Love Comes Softly movies were really well done, especially the first two.

    And I agree with the Secret Life of Bees and the Twilight series (except the first movie which I thought was too corny).

  2. I loved the Jane Austen Book Club as a movie, but I haven't read the book. I've also never read anything by Nicholas Sparks, and all the lists this week are showing me I'm definitely in the minority on that!

    Great list!
