Top Ten Book to Movie Adaptations I Still Need To Watch

Tuesday, November 10, 2015

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created and hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.  This week's topic is: Top Ten -- Top Ten Book to Movie Adaptations I Still Need to Watch.  Some of these you may be surprised that I haven't seen.  However, if the movie's release date was in the Fall of 2014, I was out of the country.  Even though the movie theaters were impressive in South Korea, I would much rather be the tourist and see everything I could instead of watching movies.

Insurgent: I love the Divergent series (and no, I haven't read the last one yet) and I still haven't seen this movie.  The trailer looks epic!

Mockingjay Part 1: Jennifer Lawerance is a perfect match for Katniss, at least I always thought so.  In terms of the book, I liked Mockingjay least of all.  Still, I have to watch the movie-- preferably before the second part comes out.

Love, Rosie: I haven't read this book but I saw it in stores once and decided to Google it. The movie came up and the trailer looks amazing.  Any trailer that gets a huge reaction out of me is definitely worth seeing.

The Maze Runner: I didn't really like the book but my brother is obsessed with this series and begs me to watch the movie every time he is about to.  I think it's time.

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl: I haven't read the book of this one either but I got to meet the author during BEA week and it struck a chord with me.  

If I Stay: I, also, met Gayle Forman during BEA and we talked about her movie.  It doesn't sound like my type of thing but I'll definitely give it a try.

This is Where I Leave You: I found this book at a garage sale and didn't know that years later it would become a hilarious movie that every one of my family tells me I must watch.

The last three are movies that haven't released yet that I am DYING to see on the big screen.  Have you see their trailers?  They look awesome!

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children: I can't wait!

The 5th Wave: I barely remember the book but the parts I do remember seem to be in the movie trailer.  Either way, it looks amazing!

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: This book had the best book trailer ever and now it's going to be the best movie ever.

What movies are you waiting for?

  1. I love your list. I agree that Mockingjay was my least favorite book. But Jennifer Lawrence does a phenomenal job with the emotional aspects that I really loved the first movie. Can't wait to watch several of these myself!

  5. I totally forgot about Me, Earl and The Dying Girl, I really want to see this movie even though I'm only half way through the book. I like how they cast realistic looking actors and not models.

  6. Some great movies on your list!
