I Can’t Wait For These Book to Movie Adaptations!! | Top Ten Tuesday #28 (November 10th)

Hello everyone and welcome back to another Top Ten Tuesday, a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish! This week’s topic is:

Top Ten Book To Movie Adaptations I’m Looking Forward To or Ten Book To Movie Adaptations I Still Need To Watch

I feel like I’ve done this kind of topic before, but I’ve decided to go ahead with top ten book to movie adaptations I’m looking forward to! Are you ready? Let’s do this.


1. The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare

After the big flop of the movie adaptation of City of Bones, The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare has been given another chance to win our hearts—this time as a TV show! You all know how excited I am for this. Technically this isn’t supposed to be on the list as we’re talking about book to *movie* adaptations, but oh well. Can’t wait for this!

Shadowhunters

2. Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

According to IMBD, this book-to-movie adaptation is set to be released December 25th 2016 in the U.S—for which I’m super excited! It’s definitely far away, but it’s exciting to know this amazing book will be turned into a movie. Can’t wait!

3. The Fifth Wave by Rick Yancey

Set to be released sometime in January 2016 if I’m not mistaken, The Fifth Wave stars Chloe Grace Moretz (If I Stay) and is definitely something I’m looking forward to! I enjoyed the book and I’m hoping this turns out good too. Check out the trailer here if you haven’t already!

The 5th Wave

 

4. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen/Seth Grahame-Smith

I haven’t read the book for this one, but I’m definitely intrigued by the trailer of this! Putting a twist on the classic tale of Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, this one seems unique for sure. Trailer found here if you want to see it!

5. Allegiant by Veronica Roth 

The first part of Allegiant is set to be released this coming March 2016, and I’m hoping it will turn out to be good! A teaser trailer for this was released if you want to check it out.

6. Me Before You by Jojo Moyes

I can’t wait to see how this emotional story will be translated onto the big screen! I loved this book so much. Set for March 18, 2016, Me Before You stars Sam Claflin and Emilia Clarke in the leading roles, and I’m super excited! I just know this is going to be a movie to keep your eyes on.

Me Before You

7. A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness

Supposedly set for a release of October 14, 2016, A Monster Calls is quite far away, but I’m still really excited at the prospect of a movie for this! My only wish is that they don’t screw it up. I mean, the book isn’t that long, so I truly hope they won’t be cutting out any important bits! I loved this book.

8. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by J.K. Rowling

Another HP-verse movie! I know this is set before the events of the original HP movies, but I’m super excited all the same.

Fantastic Beasts

9. The BFG by Roald Dahl

Super excited for this as well! Ah, childhood favourites. There’s an older version of this already, and I’m intrigued to see how they’ll do this one!

The BFG

10. The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith

I actually had no idea this was going to be a movie! I haven’t read the book yet though, definitely planning on changing that soon! Apparently this will be including Hailee Steinfeld and Robert Sheehan in the leading roles. I’m intrigued!

The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight

 

Honorable mention: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 —Aren’t we all excited for this one?! 


So there we have it! Book to Movie adaptations I’m excited for. These are basically all set for early or late 2016, *sniffle* but on the bright side at least they’re in the making and aren’t too far away! I’m hoping with all my heart none of these are stopped being produced!

What movies on here are you looking forward to? What other book-to-movie adaptations (that aren’t on this list) are you excited for? Let me know in the comments!

Top 10 Tuesday #8 (June 02): Top Ten Books That Are Planned to be Movies

Hello lovely bookworms! The time has come for another Top 10 Tuesday, a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is top ten books I’d love to see as movies or TV shows, but I’m going to change it up a bit and do top ten books that have been optioned/are under development/are soon to be movies, since I already covered this topic on ABEA Day 4, but oh well.

Eleanor and Park

1. Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell

This would make an awesome movie! There haven’t been much details about this movie yet, but the rights were purchased, I’m pretty sure. Definitely would go to see this movie!

2. All the Bright Places by Jennifer NivenAll the Bright Places_bookcover

This is also going to be a movie! I believe Elle Fanning has been chosen to play the role of Violet. You can see more details about this here. This was such a heartbreaking story, and simply amazing. Perfect for a movie!

The Night Circus_bookcover3. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

According to Popsugar, there hasn’t been any casting news yet, but Jane Eyre writer Moira Buffini will pen the script. I know lots of people loved this book so I’m definitely excited if they’re making a movie! I actually have this book on my shelf, so I’m going to try and get to it soon.

4. Dark Places by Gillian FlynnDark Places_bookcover

Don’t know much about this, but I believe Chloe Moretz (If I Stay) is going to be a part of the cast, along with several other people. I haven’t read this book yet, but I want to! (Have you read this? What did you think of it?)

The Scorch Trials_bookcover5. The Scorch Trials by James Dashner

This one is already a planned movie, as it is the sequel to The Maze Runner. I know some people didn’t like The Maze Runner, but I personally was okay with it, and I’m interested in seeing how they do the second movie! Here’s the trailer:

6. Paper Towns by John GreenPaper Towns_bookcover

This is another planned movie, that will be released summer 2015 if I remember correctly, starring Nat Wolff and Cara Delevingne. Check out the trailer below:

Beautiful Disaster_bookcover7. Beautiful Disaster Jamie McGuire

I have this on my TBR, and I actually just found out today that it might be a movie. Better read it soon!

8. Me Before You by Jojo MoyesMe Before You_bookcover

  • I haven’t read this yet (although I will for my Popsugar challenge) I’m dying to read it, especially now after finding out there will be a movie! Apparently Emilia Clarke will be playing the character Louisa opposite Sam Claflin.

Fantastic Beasts_bookcover9. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by J.K Rowling

  • The queen J.K Rowling revisits the Harry Potter universe in this book about Newt Scamander, who “wrote” the textbook that Potter and his classmates would study. (Popsugar)
  • No one has been cast yet, but David Yates has signed on to direct.

10. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom RiggsMissPeregrine'sHomeforPeculiarChildren_bookcover

This will be an amazing movie! I’m not sure if it’s 100% sure that a movie will be made, but if it is, it would be awesome. According to Popsugar, Eva Green and Asa Butterfield will star, with Tim Burton directing.

 


So that’s it for this week’s Top 10 Tuesday! What books would you like to see as a movie/TV show? What books are being planned to be a movie/TV show? Let me know in the comments below, along with other thoughts you might have!

Happy Tuesday!

Armchair BEA 2015 | Book to Movie Adaptations

Hello! Armchair BEA is coming to an end, unfortunately! Today’s topic is Book to Movie Adaptations:

Book to Movie Adaptions
What books do you want to be made into a movie or television show? What are some of your favorites? We’ll explore more about this topic, especially what works and what doesn’t.  Are there any upcoming shows or movies that you’re excited for? What are your recommendations?

Book to movie adaptations that I think stayed true to the book:

  • Harry Potter. These movies were all amazing, and there’s no big issue I have with them! The actors were spot-on and I will always remember them as perfect HP characters. I think these movies are one of the best book-to-movie adaptations out there, to be honest. I just loved these movies so much!
  • Hunger Games. These movies were another really good book-to-movie adaptation. I think Jennifer Lawrence made a great Katniss, and the plot stayed pretty close to the book.
  • The Fault in Our Stars. This movie was another adaptation that I think was spot-on. It wasn’t better than the book, but definitely is a rival. It was just that good (in terms of being similar to the book).
  • Pride and Prejudice (2005). This was the only adaptation I’ve seen of Pride and Prejudice, and I really liked it! It was pretty similar to the book, I think.
  • The Princess Diaries. This adaptation wasn’t that similar with the book, but it was a really good movie, so it’s on this list!
