Top 10 Tuesdays - Book to Movie Adaptations

This top 10 weekly meme is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and can be found HERE.  Each week they focus on lists which cover various topics related to books and reading. Today's topic is the top 10 book to movie adaptations I am looking forward to.  Some of these are already out and they are in no particular order.  I also don't know if I can come up with 10 but I'll give it a go.

I own this book and really hope to read it before it is released on DVD.  I am not really a Matt Damon fan, but I have heard wonderful things about both the book and the movie.

I read this book in April 2014 before I even knew it was going to be a movie.  I loved it so much and while I doubt the movie is as good, I Olivia Cooke.

HULU is supposedly making this into a mini-series, or maybe it's an actual series now.  The book is awesome and although I hate what TV has done to some of his novels (like Under the Dome), I look
forward to seeing what they do with this one.  It stars James Franco and Josh Duhamel so maybe it won't be all bad.

I didn't really like this book.  In fact, I have it 3 stars on Goodreads and I could swear I gave it 2.  Oh well.  The movie trailer looks pretty decent though and I know I'll never read the rest of the trilogy so I might as well watch it and see how it measures up.  I feel like at least I have low expectations going in.  Actually, the trailer I watched gave me more enjoyment in its 2 minutes than the entire book did.

I haven't read any of these books but I hear Tim Burton is doing the movie so count me in!

Saw the trailer last night and now I really want to see this. 

Don't know much about this one or if it will actually happen...but I can hope.

So what made your list this week.  Are you looking forward to any of these as well?????


  1. I haven't read the 5th wave yet, but I'm surprised to see you gave it such a low rating because I've heard so much hype surrounding this one so far. I might give it a go before the movie comes out though. great review!
