Welcome to another Top Ten Tuesday. Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish, where we get a bookish prompt to create a top ten for.
Book to movie adaptions is something the book community talks about a lot. A lot of the adaptions just don’t live up to the book fans expectations. Let’s be honest, it is hard for the movie makers to get these adaptions up to our expectations as each fan has their own interpretation. But some try harder than others. For that reason I sometimes don’t watch the adaptions and wait a long time to get to them. I decided to split this list up in the two choices The Broke and the Bookish gave us this week, book to movie adaptions I still need to warch and book to movie adaptions I am looking forward to.
Five Book to Movie Adaptions I Still Need to Watch
- Perfume: The Story of a Murderer
I’ll be honest, I actually have this on dvd and I tried to watch it when I got it years ago. But I didn’t like the first 5 minutes, hurled something across the room in frustration and stopped the dvd. I haven’t tried watching it since…
- Catching Fire
I actually quite enjoyed The Hunger Games though it isn’t my favorite book series by far. I just haven’t gotten around to the others that are out.
- The Maze Runner
- The Martian
Even if I still have to read the book.
Five Book to Movie Adaptions I Am Looking Forward to
- The 5th Wave
- Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children
- Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
- The Darkest Minds (in development)
- Angelfall (optioned, doesn’t mean it will happen but we can hope)
