Liz Loves Books

I love to read and to talk about books. I review many of the books I read. I do not accept any author/publisher submissions for reviews. I do not read or review ARCs. I do not enter any giveaways or contests. I obtain the books I review by purchasing them at the same price they are offered to the general public at the time of purchase. My reviews are intended for the use of my fellow readers. They are not advertising or promotion. They are not beta reads or constructive criticism or editing or advice to the author. My only obligation to the author is to pay the price charged for the book at the time of purchase. My reviews are sometimes critical and I will not stop posting critical reviews just to spare delicate authors' feelings. I am happy to make new friends, but friend requests from authors or promoters who have few or no books (and/or friends) in common with me and write or promote categories I do not read (especially new adult) will be ignored. I used to read more self-published books. After recent meltdowns by self-published authors, I now only read self-published authors I've previously read or who have been recommended to me by fellow readers I trust. I also used to read young adult/new adult books but rarely do so now.

30 Day Book Challenge - Day 19, Favorite Book Turned into a Movie

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz  - L. Frank Baum, W.W. Denslow


I don't think this means favorite book that happens to have been turned into a movie regardless of how good it was.  That would just be my favorite book.  I assume this means favorite movie based on a book.  


I was enthralled by movie version of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz: 100th Anniversary Edition (Books of Wonder) - L. Frank Baum  as a child of 5 or 6 and um ... several (47) years later, I am still enthralled.  It is close to movie perfection. It is not my favorite movie (Casablanca is not based on a book) but it is a close second.
