I know this post is a day late, but I had it like 90% done, and then managed to get in a fender bender with a parked car in a parking lot, which kind of ruined my day, and I never got around to posting it. Since I put the effort in to create graphics, I figured I might as well still post it!!
Top Ten (Twelve) Books to Movies I Can’t Wait to See (or Still Need to See)
When I was younger, I went to the movies ALL THE TIME. Now – not so much. I’m lucky when I catch movies on Netflix, and I often forget about them before I manage to see them. Still, if there are any movies that I still make an effort to see, it’s book-to-movie adaptations, and I have a list of some I haven’t managed to get to yet or I’m really looking forward to. Here they are!
Oops, I Missed These:
The Book Thief – I haven’t read the book yet either. I know, I know. It’s been sitting on my shelf for ages, waiting for me. I meant to read it before the movie came out, and …
Paper Towns – I haven’t read this book either. (You may see a theme here.) This one was never as top priority for me. I’m not a mega John Green fan or anything, but I like him.
City of Bones – I meant to see this movie. I even read the book shortly after the movie came out. But I just never got around to it. I never got around to reading more of the series either – but I still plan to!
The DUFF – I just got this book recently from #BooksforTrade, so I definitely plan to read it and then watch the movie. You know, someday
Looking Forward To:
The Scorch Trials – I haven’t missed this one yet. It’s still in theaters – I still have a chance! I’ll probably take my son to this one, since he’s a huge James Dashner fan, so I think I actually will manage to get to the theater for it – but who knows?
Unwind – This movie isn’t even slated to go into production until April of 2016, but I’m already anxiously anticipating it. If there is ONE series that I want to see in movie form, this is it. Please, Constantin Films, don’t mess it up!!!
The 5th Wave – I loved this book, and I think it will make an even better movie. Plus, my son enjoyed this book too – so that’s always an extra reason to see the movie.
Allegiant – Yep, I know I’m the only person on earth who liked this book. Looking forward to the movie too!
Mockingjay Part II – Um, this is the point where I confess that I haven’t watched Part I yet. Need to fix that fast!
Through the Looking Glass – How can you not be excited about this one? Just, how?
Beauty and the Beast – I’m stretching on this one because I don’t even know if I’ve ever read the original fairy tale, but this was my favorite Disney movie of all time, and I’m SO excited for the new movie!!
So, what movies are you looking forward to? I want to know!
