Book To Movie Adaptations
Greetings bookworms, and welcome back! Today, in the last hour of this fine Tuesday, I am bringing to you all the first Top Ten Tuesday post of the month! I feel like it’s been forever since I did one of these, and it’s about time I get back into the groove of things.
This week the topic is book-to-movie adaptations we are excited about or haven’t seen yet. This is an easy topic for me because I am constantly hearing about movie adaptations, but I am also not a huge movie watcher. So let’s get to it, shall we?
Book To Movie Adaptations I Haven’t Seen Yet
1. Harry Potter
Now, considering I have not read the books yet, you should all be sighing with relief I suppose. However, I am not saying I haven’t seen any of the Harry Potter movies. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen the first and the second Harry Potter movies more than once, and possibly even the third. However, I never got far enough into the movies. I have approximately watched less than half of the entire movie franchise.
2. The Maze Runner
I have been meaning to go out and see this movie adaptation, but I never got around to it. I haven’t even read the books yet, so I have no flipping idea what the story is really about! But I intend to know soon (if I can find the time, with my flood of books in my midst).
3. Paper Towns
After ABSOLUTELY LOVING the book, I was so excited for the Paper Towns movie and then… I never got around to seeing it. I still do intend of watching it however, because I am curious to see how well they did and if I like it better than the book. (Which possibly will NOT happen)
4. Me, Earl and the Dying Girl
I haven’t read the book, however the movie looks so great! The trailers all make me excited to see the movie, and yet I still have not seen it! What am I doing? I think I’m not a movie person – but then again, how can we be movie people AND book people? Or is it just me?!
5. The Martian
Another adaptation in which I have yet to read the book! But never fear, I HOPE to read the book as soon as I can. It sound so good and so many people have raved about the movie that I MUST see it.
6. Gone Girl
To be honest, I don’t plan to see this movie, but I thought I might just mention that I have not seen this yet (and probably never will). It’s not my type of movie, I suppose and neither is the book any more appealing to me.
I was fairly impressed with the Divergent movie, and thought they did a good job, and I am of course excited for this movie, which is the second in the trilogy. Does anyone know if Allegiant will be adapted into a movie? Come on bookworms, give me all the details!
Book To Movie Adaptations I Am Looking Forward To:
8. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
I haven’t read the classic novel, Pride and Prejudice, but this sounds so interesting! (Let’s be honest, I’m only taking interest in it because of the ‘zombies’). I know broadly what Pride and Prejudice is about, but not much that I feel familiar with it at all. But nonetheless, I am excited for this one!
9. Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children
There’s a pretty clear trend here… All of the adaptations I want to see are ones I haven’t read the books for! But oh well. While I feel like the book for this might freak me out, for some reason I’m excited to see how the movie turns out. Therefore, I am looking forward to it!
10. The Fifth Wave
ANOTHER book I haven’t read, let I am very very excited for the movie. I mean… ALIENS. Come on. And the trailer was pretty intense.
And there we have it! Those are my Top Ten Book-To-Movie Adaptations! I hope you all enjoyed this on your Tuesday night (or any other time of your day depending on where you are in the world).
What book-to-movie adaptations are you looking forward to this year and next year?
