Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish wherein each week bloggers list out their Top Ten. This week we discuss the book-to-movie adaptations. Holiday season is coming soon, which means plenty of time for binge-watching movies. Not for me, though. I’ll be working in the lab, like the dutiful research student I am 😉
So, while I read plenty of books, I don’t catch up on as many adaptations. For instance, I haven’t even seen the LoTR movies yet. Anyway, here are the ones I really am looking forward to watching soon.
Okay, technically, it is not a movie, but I am still very excited about this adaptation. After the movie that bombed, we need this, okay? And I love this new casting – Alec, Simon and Isabelle are perfect, others I still am not decided on. And with a TV show, it can go more into the mythology of the stories, so fingers crossed that they make a good one.
Yes, as much as I love this series, I have yet not been able to make time to watch the movie. Seemed awesome in the trailer, and I wanted to see it in the theatre but with the move and all, I kind of lost interest. Now, someday I hope I’ll watch it.
The Scorch Trials
The Maze Runner was awesome and I look forward to watching this one too. Also, Dylan is kinda my favorite at the moment, so…
This one is kinda obvious. I mean, it is still the most popular YA dystopian story. Plus Katniss is even more badass in this one. Also, real or not real? *tears*
The 5th Wave
It felt like eons had passed since they first announced the movie and the release of the trailers and the posters. I’m so excited for this movie – with its perfect casting, and all the awesomeness I was promised in the trailer.
Voyage of the Dawn Treader
I seriously have no excuse for this one. It’s been five years and I still haven’t watched it. I keep meaning to, then forget it. Sigh, maybe someday.
I loved this twisted story, but am I ready to revisit it again? Probably not yet. I skimmed through the movie once (right after reading the book), like the start, but was kinda meh about it. I intend to watch it, though.
This is my list, at least of the books that I’ve read. There are others, but since I haven’t read those books, they didn’t make it here, like The Giver, The Book Thief, etc. Any suggestions of book-movie combos that would be great to get into?
