Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. The feature was created because The Broke and Bookish are particularly fond of lists (as are we!). Each week a new Top Ten list topic is given and bloggers can participate.
Today’s Topic: Book to Movie Adaptations We Are Looking Forward To
Last week, we discussed which movies we’d like to see adapted into books, but this week, we are keeping it traditional. We can’t wait to see these on the big screen (or more likely, at home with our toddlers)!
If you stopped by last week, you learned I don’t like movies. But the few movies I do see are book adaptations. I am genuinely excited to see these movies.
Oh, how I loved this book! I think it would translate well to film, too.
2. Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys
Yes, yes, yes!!!
3. The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater
This will either be really good or really awful. I am not sure how it will translate to film, but oh, how I love the book!
4. A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness
October 2016, baby! Bring it on!
The producers of If I Stay have optioned this film. Oh, please make it happen.
1. The BFG by Roald Dahl
Steven Spielberg is bringing us The BFG in 2016! I am so excited! My favorite Roald Dahl book!
2. Chaos Walking series by Patrick Ness
I would be so fascinated to see how a director would take the NOISE and make it live.
As soon as I read this series, I pictured it as a cartoon series, but it’d make a great Disney film as well.
I love the humor, plot, and characterization of this series, and I think it would be a magical adaption.
(The other pirate book I read recently, Hook’s Revenge, would be fun also!)
Turning The Living into a movie would be epic. I think it could be a major blockbuster: Castaway + Hunger Games + Titanic.
Which movies adaptations are you most looking forward to?
