Top Ten Tuesday: Book to Movie Adaptations We Are Looking Forward To


top ten tuesday

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.

1. The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey

fifth wave

Oh, how I loved this book! I think it would translate well to film, too.

2. Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys

between shades

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!

5. I’ll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson

I'll Give You the Sun

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.

3. Princess in Black series by Shannon Hale

As soon as I read this series, I pictured it as a cartoon series, but it’d make a great Disney film as well.

4. The Very Nearly Honorable League of Pirates series by Caroline Carlson

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!)

5. The Living by Matt de la Pena


Turning The Living into a movie would be epic. I think it could be a major blockbuster: CastawayHunger GamesTitanic.

Which movies adaptations are you most looking forward to?

  1. So much Patrick Ness!!! Chaos Walking is one of my favourite trilogies….I’ll be waiting with anticipation to see how they bring it to the big screen… :S

  2. Are they really making Between Shades of Gray into a movie? That book blew me away, then I gave it to my teen cousin and it blew HER away! I would love to see it as a movie. The rest of your choices, Ricki, are all on my Must-Read-Soon list (more urgent than a mere TBR list – lol)!

    Kellee, I agree Chaos Walking trilogy would be incredible as a movie(s) – my husband, son and I all loved it!

    Great ideas – I love seeing favorite books come to life on the screen!
