Paper to Screen #2



9780307946713One Day tells the story of college graduates Emma and Dexter who meet on the 15th of July and mark each other’s life forever. For the next 20 years we see snapshots of their lives always on that day as they fight, hope, miss opportunities and finally come to terms with what love and life is.




Love, Rosie is a movie about two best friends, Rosie and Alex. They met when they were 5 years old and they’ve known each other incredibly well since then, so they can’t possibly fall in love and end up well… can they?




The reason I recommend Love, Rosie if you’ve read and enjoyed One Day is because both this stories follow a friend/romantic relationship year after year as the characters and the worlds surrouding them evolve. Can time erode feelings or intesify them? Read/watch them both to find out!

Paper to Screen #1

I’m starting a new series this year, as you probaly already noticed it’s called “Paper to Screen” and it consists of me recommending you certain movies if you liked certains books (usually because after watching the movie it made me think of the book). Hope you enjoy it 🙂



Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close tells the story of 9-year-old Oskar Schell, an inventor, amateur entomologist, Francophile, letter writer, pacifist, natural historian, percussionist, romantic, Great Explorer, jeweller, detective, vegan, and collector of butterflies who sets out to solve the mystery of a key he discovers in his father’s closet after his father’s death on 9/11, with the help of an older neighbour.



Little Boy is a movie about the 8-year-old Pepper Busbee, a “little boy” and magician in practice who, after his father leaving for World War II, tries to bring him back with the help of a priest and a Japanese neighbour.



The reason I recommend this movie if you’ve read and enjoyed Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close is because both protagonists are amazingly special kids that find help in the most unexpected people. Both set to discover something about the fathers they are both really close to. Heartwarming stories with fantastic characters! I recommend both, obviously!
