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!

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

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.

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!

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!

‘Shadowhunters’ TV Show Teaser Trailers & Casting Updates, Lady Midnight Cover Reveal, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies TRAILER + More! | Book News

Hello everybody! It’s been a long time since I’ve posted updates on any news relating to books, and with the things I have today, I decided it’s finally time to do an all-round book news post! I have a lot of different types of things to share with you all today, so let’s get on with it! ❤

‘Shadowhunters’ TV Show

So, a lot has been going on for this tv show in the making since my last update on it. We have been getting tons of promo pictures, videos and more—but now we also have a full 1 minute and 3o second teaser trailer! Check it out below:

Overall, I think it’s really good! A lot of it seems to be different from the book, but it has potential. I did especially like the glimpse of Jace’s personality in Dominic Sherwood! And I think Katherine McNamara seems to be doing a good job as Clary. 🙂 So excited for the show!

There has also been a promo teaser trailer clip released–unfortunately I couldn’t see it since it apparently couldn’t be viewed in my country , but here it is!

Casting Updates

We have several new castings to add to the ever-growing Shadowhunter crew! Introducing:

Now we have our complete Lightwood family! Yay! Max is totally adorable, even if he’s not exactly how I imagined him, and I’m liking the casting for Maryse as well. I’m not sure about what I think about the casting for Robert, but I guess it could work?

We also have some other castings:

Lydia Branwell‘ is an original character created for the show, who apparently will be a descendant of Charlotte and Henry Branwell in The Infernal Devices. I don’t know how exactly it will play out, but the actress sure looks stunning!

As for the casting of Imogen Herondale, she’s not exactly how I imagined, but I think maybe she has what it takes to pull it off? Maybe. And the casting for Ragnor Fell seems to be okay. I don’t even know if Ragnor will be having a big role in the show, so even if I didn’t like him, it would be bearable.

That’s it, as far as I know! Feel free to check out my thoughts on the casting of: JaceSimon and IsabelleClaryAlec and LukeValentine and MagnusJocelyn Fray, and Hodge Starkweather if you haven’t already! Or if you simply want to check out all the castings so far (apart from the ones mentioned in this post of course), press here.


Cover Reveals

I have two covers recently revealed that I want to share! First and foremost, the cover for Lady Midnight has been released!! Here it is, in all its glory:

Lady Midnight

I think it looks super cool, though there does seem to be something about it that is nagging at my brain which I can’t seem to put my finger on… I like it, but I don’t know if I fully do. Does that make sense? In any case, this book is slated for a March 8 2016 release, I believe? I honestly can’t wait!

As for the other cover news I wanted to share…this one I first found out about through Cristina @ My Tiny Obsessions:

The Rose and the Dagger

Yep, the cover for The Rose and the Dagger has been revealed! I absolutely loved The Wrath and the Dawn—review here—and after the cliffhanger in that book, I simply am dying to read the sequel!

As for what I think of The Rose and the Dagger’s cover; well, the blue might be kind of hard to get used to, and at first I was pretty skeptical that I’d like it, but I think it will probably grow on me sooner or later. 🙂


Movie Trailers

The trailer for a new book-to-movie adaptation (Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Seth Grahame-Smith) was released today! Check it out below:

I haven’t read the book, although I had considered it several times. So I’m not quite sure what to expect from the film, but it seems intriguing!

On another note, the second official trailer of Mockingjay Part 2 was released 3 days ago! Here it is:

I am more excited than ever for this to be released!! I can’t wait to watch it!

And last but not least, although this is nowhere near current news, a while ago the trailer for The Fifth Wave (by Rick Yancey), another book-to-movie adaptation in the making, was released!

I definitely hope it will turn out good! I’m pretty good with the cast right now, though I’m interested in seeing how they’ll handle the many POVs in the book.


So that’s it for my book news post! I hope I helped with giving you at least some new updates on something. 😉 What do you think of all these; the Shadowhunters TV show trailer, the new castings, the cover reveals, the movie trailers? Let me know your thoughts below! I’d love to know what you think. ❤

I hope you guys are all enjoying your weekend!

Until the Next Meal, Analee

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!
