All of The Book-to-Movie Adaptations I Probably Should Have Watched

Finally my non movie-watching skills come into play! *rubs hands*

Top Ten Tuesday

I love this week’s Top Ten Tuesday. 🙂 Top Ten Tuesday is the bookish meme created/hosted at The Broke and Bookish. This week’s topic is Top Ten Book To Movie Adaptations I’m Looking Forward To or Ten Book To Movie Adaptations I Still Need To Watch. I’ll be doing the latter.

The Ones I Most Want To See:

Silver Linings Playbook, Memoirs of a Geisha, Room, The Great Gatsby, Paper Towns, Naomi and Ely’s No Kiss List, Me and Earl and The Dying Girl and The Spectacular Now.

Favorite Movie Posters:

Water For Elephants, The Great Gatsby, Naomi and Ely’s No Kiss List and The Spectacular Now.

I have read The Great Gatsby though, I really liked that book.

Okay, as you can see, I’m very, very behind in all the book to movie-adaptions. If I haven’t read it, I probably haven’t watched it.

Exceptions go to Mockingjay part 1 (thanks, Life Group), all of the Nicholas Sparks movies, Harry Potter, The Book Thief, The Time Traveler’s Wife, Beautiful. Creatures, Warm Bodies, Beastly, Ella Enchanted, Eat Pray Love, Jane Eyre and probably a ton of others…

So okay, maybe I’m not SUPER behind in movie adaptions, but if they’re recent, odds are I haven’t seen them unless I read the book.

Tell me what books to movies you need to see and what you’re favorite is! 🙂 And tell me about any future adaptations you’re looking forward to, I’m excited for Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock (which I think is still in the works?) and All the Bright Places!

    Water for Elephants is such a good movie! I haven’t read the book yet, which is bad of me. I was watching Gone Girl just last night. The book is one of my absolute favourites 🙂

    I’ve seen Fight Club, Water for Elephants, Divergent, and The Maze Runner and they are all pretty good. I still have reservations about watching The Giver.. I’ve heard mixed reviews

    I have only seen 4 of these movies…and read three of these books, lol. First of all, the famous notion that “the book is better than the movie” is SO SO SO true with “The Silver Linings Playbook”, which makes me sad to say. So many things are different that it made me mad (and I’m especially mad because I wanted it to be REALLY good because JENNIFER LAWRENCE!). Second of all, I haven’t read “The Best of Me” so I can’t really compare the movie to the book. The movie was ok.

    Next, I have seen AND read “Divergent” and I think they did a pretty spiffy job. I also really like Shailene Woodley and Theo James 😉 And last but not least, “The Great Gatsby” – Actually I believe that the movie was better than the book with this one XD But that’s only because I have a long-standing crush on Leonardo DiCaprio!

    I enjoyed Silver Linings Playbook even though I had not read the book. I skipped Paper Towns because I wasn’t a fan of the book. Naomi & Ely’s No Kiss List was fun. I’ve heard some didn’t like it because there were too many changes from the book but it had been so long since I’d read the book that I didn’t even notice. I really enjoyed Divergent and thought is was a good adaptation. Plus Theo James. 🙂 Insurgent was another story. I started to wonder if they’d even read the book. Even staring at Theo didn’t help much.

    HEY WATCH HARRY POTTER. Also The Best of Me was MEH. I was pissed off by the end. And gah, I once started The Great Gatsby and I never finished it. But I enjoyed the book and I need to watch it asap. I really want to see The Maze Runner (don’t know if I care about reading the book first), and I’m excited about Me, Earl, and the Dying Girl and The Giver.
