Marina, thanks for joining the Lit Flicks Challenge!! We're so excited to have you on board and look forward to seeing your list. Make sure to check back around the first of each month for giveaways and activities. Also, if you plan to watch most or all of the movie versions of the books you read, you should check out the companion challenge hosted by my brother:

I'll go check out your brother's challenge in a bit, and was about to post my list, but decided to read your comment first. I think I noted the "checkback" on my google calendar, but should go double check that.

Marina, your list looks great. I have Atonement on my list too. And I had no idea that the Stepford Wives was based on a book. (By the way, I would recommend seeing the older version of this movie, rather than the newer version.) I look forward to reading your reviews!
