It’s Top Ten Tuesday!!! (originally created by The Broke and the Bookish) Compared to some of the last weeks we’ve had, this theme is actually pretty “easy” for me:
Top Ten Book To Movie Adaptations I’m Looking Forward To or Ten Book To Movie Adaptations I Still Need To Watch
I went with Book to Movie Adaptations I am looking forward to, because I don’t think I’ve missed 10 adaptations that have already been released. Okay, maybe I have, but I still like to concentrate on the future with this one. Again, I want to remind you that my lists are never really a ranking though. I am almost equally excited for all of these!
1. Me Before You (Jojo Moyes)
A cast that includes Emilia Clarke, Sam Claflin, Jenna Coleman, Charles Dance, Brendan Coyle and Matthew Lewis has me sitting in a movie theater in no time! I haven’t read the book yet, but I really, really, really want to because I think it seems to be right down my alley.
2. The Night Circus (Erin Morgenstern)
The book has been optioned a while ago and since then there were NO news whatsoever! It’s torture! I would love to see this book come to life, even though I think it might work better as TV show, simply because there can’t be enough circus. It’s so gorgeous and enchanting! They probably take so much time, because they want to do it right.
3. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children (Ransom Riggs)
It’s being directed by Tim Burton and has a really interesting cast. I still can’t quite picture it, because the images in my head for the book characters are all confused and jumbled up in my head. Still, I am excited about this one!
4. Red Queen (Victoria Aveyard)
Another book that has been optioned. I loved reading Red Queen and even though we are still far away from knowing the conclusion to the series, I wouldn’t mind filling the gaps between the books with movies.
5. The Rosie Project (Don Tillman)
The movie is still categorized as “in development”, but everyone seems to love the book and I really want to read it. Jennifer Laurence is supposed to star as Rosie and I see that as a good sign as well.
6. Eleanor & Park (Rainbow Rowell)
Rainbow Rowell wrote the script for Eleanor & Park, so I have high hopes of the movie being faithful to the book. It’s not my favourite book of hers, but I do believe it would be cool to watch. Also, maybe we will get a bit of a different conclusion than the one in the book? Maybe it will spark her interest in writing a sequel? One can always dream …
7. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (J. K. Rowling)
Does it need explaining? *sigh* Eddie Redmayne.
8. Ready Player One (Ernest Cline)
As much as I had problems with the book while reading it, I could really imagine it as a movie. I think the pacing would work better and Cline just has that certain way of telling a story that makes it seem like a film anyway.
9. The 5th Wave (Rick Yancey)
I’ve already written a post about that particular book to movie adaptation (click here to read it and watch the Trailer!).
10. The Choice (Nicholas Sparks)
I have yet to miss a Sparks movie. ‘Nough said!
- Allegiant Part I and II
- Mockingjay Part II
- Alice Through the Looking Glass
- Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
- Looking for Alaska
- Let It Snow
