Some of the greatest movies in the past can be attributed to the fact that they are also the best movie adaptations of novels. Nowadays I find that original stories are truly good are hard to come by, and the movies that stay with us are the ones that have jumped from the page to the screen. Some of the biggest films and film franchises in the past have been from books! Here’s a list of the 9 best movie adaptations of novels that you will love!

There is only one way to kick off a list of best movie adaptations of novels, and that’s with Harry Potter. It is the single most successful movie franchise of all time, worldwide. That’s nuts! And to think there was a time when J.K. Rowling actually didn’t want it to be made into a movie because she wasn’t sure how it would turn out. She said the reason behind this was because she didn’t want to hurt the integrity of the book. I mean, I sort of understand, the books are incredible, but imagine where we’d be without the Harry Potter movies! Thankfully she came to her senses, right?
