Top 5 Films by Carys Jones, author of Sunkissed (plus a giveaway!)

Carys Jones

Dawn Summers is dying. It’s 1853 and as the seventeen year old continues to fade away she has visions of the father she never knew, urging her to fight for her life.

In the small village of Fandova the only medical care is in the form of the mysterious Dr. Moralus who has a known penchant for bloodletting. Thomas, Dawn's fiancĂ©, is warned against inviting his intervention, but feels he has no choice, he pleads with the doctor to save Dawn’s life…whatever it takes.

Whatever it ‘takes’ has some consequences neither of them expected. Now, it’s a hunt to the death, with both Dawn and Thomas determined to win.

Hey everyone!  Happy Thursday.  Hang on tight, Friday is almost here!  So today I have author, Carys Jones here with her Top 5 Films!  I just love top 5 films, and some of these are on my favorites list!  How about you?  Did they make any of your lists?

Film Top Five

As a writer, my greatest love is definitely literature, but my other passions are films and ballet which come a close second and third.

I love films so much that I studied Film at University alongside Creative Writing. I was really fortunate to find a course which encompassed both of my passions!

When I’m writing a book, I always see events play out in my mind, like a movie. So for me, I think my love of films and movies has helped me develop my writing as it enables me to visualise events clearly.

Growing up I used to go to the cinema at least once a week, it’s not such a regular thing now as I prefer to buy films in DVD and watch them in the comfort of my living room.

If, like me, you also love films you might well be interested in my top five movies of all time, which I’m sharing with you below. I think that films, like books, have the power to stay with you long after you’ve experienced them. And as an utter film geek it is obviously my dream to one day see one of my books made in to a movie!

So here are my top five films, the order is unnumbered as I couldn’t decide between them! Let me know what you think;
  • ·         The Breakfast Club

This is an absolute classic and a must see for any fan of the teen movie genre!
  • ·         Donnie Darko

Dark yet brilliant I love this. The cellar door comment was really interesting.
  • ·         The Lord of The Rings The Two Towers

My favourite film of the trilogy, so dramatic, I was literally on the edge of my seat during the battle for Helms Deep!

  • ·         Grease

For me it will always be the word as it reminds me of being young and I love all the songs

  • ·         Baz Lurhmann’s Romeo and Juliet

The film which made me fall in love with Leonardo DiCaprio
