Book to Movie Trivia

Posted by at 10:18 am in Book to Big Screen, Trivia | Permalink


It seems like every great book is turned into a movie these days. Or, hit movies are turned back into book series. A few months ago in my local bookstore, I saw an entire section devoted to “movie-books.” For example, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (rated PG-13) had a book, “The Official Movie-Storybook.” Not only that, but there was a whole series of Transformers books!

From board books, to beginning readers, to graphic novels, to regular novels – chances are if it’s been a hit movie, it has a book go with it. Same with popular books. It seems they are all made into movies! So the question is. . . can you guess these books that were made into movies and vice versa? Lights, camera, ACTION. . .

  1. This hit vampire movie series started with Stephenie Meyer’s four books based in Forks, Washington.
  2. The upcoming movie based on this Beverly Cleary book stars Selena Gomez and Joey King.
  3. Harry, Ron & Hermione. Need we say more?
  4. This classic book about the friendship between a pig and a spider became a movie starring Dakota Fanning (and a barn full of animals) in 2006.
  5. This book series is written in diary form, and follows Greg through embarrassing and hilarious middle school life.
  6. This was the name of the second book of the Cirque du Freak series, and the name of the corresponding movie.
  7. This Disney movie series starring Woody and Buzz spawned TONS of  books.
  8. These superhero movies began as comic books. Name at least three with the word “man” in their title.
  9. This 15-book series follows owls as they fight evil and battle for their kingdom.
  10. Lemony Snicket authored this popular book series that became a movie.

Happy guessing! Leave your answers in the Comments, and check back next week to see how many book-to-blockbusters you got.
