I’m pretty sure I’m signed up for this.  At least, I went to the site, commented, and thought I did everything right. Regardless, since L.G. Smith has dubbed me the blogger who writes explicit romantic scenes,J, I’ve decided that my first two picks will be of a more risqué nature. 

Novel to Films Blogfest

Book 1 that was made into a movie: LOLITA—a tale of passionate despair and guilty carnality.  This book was originally written in Russian, and Vladimir Nabokov will shock you.

Cover of the first edition


The story starts with a college professor named Humbert who means to spend the Summer in New Hampshire before he’s expected to begin teaching at Beardsley College.  He searches for a room to rent, and Charlotte Haze, a sexually frustrated widow, invites him to stay at her house. He declines until he sees her daughter, Dolores, affectionately called "Lolita." Lolita is a soda-pop drinking, gum-snapping, overtly flirtatious teenager with whom Humbert falls in love.  It’s an inner struggle.  Although we realize it’s wrong for this man to feel attracted to this young girl, the writer wields the story in such a way that we feel sympathetic of the main character.  Lolita is such a tease.

Pick 2 book that was made into a movie: LADY CHATTERLEY'S LOVER. 

Lady Chatterleys Lover.jpg

Lady Chatterley is a woman who marries a nobleman, Clifford Chatterley. Constance (or, as she is known throughout the novel, Connie) assumes his title, becoming Lady Chatterley. Lady Chatterley's Lover chronicles Connie's maturation as a woman and as a sensual being. She comes to despise her weak, ineffectual husband, and to love Oliver Mellors, the gamekeeper on her husband's estate. In the process of leaving her husband and conceiving a child with Mellors, Lady Chatterley moves from the heartless, bloodless world of the intelligentsia and aristocracy into a vital and profound connection rooted in sensuality and sexual fulfillment.  Yes, it's terrible that she leaves her wheelchair ridden husband, and it makes the reader want to curse her.  And yet she feels so trapped.  The author connects with the reader in such a way that you'll find yourself cheering for this poor woman.
