Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week I will make a list of 10 books, authors or other bookish things surrounding a certain topic. Today, I’m talking about all the book-to-movie adaptations I really want to watch. There are some new ones on here, some older ones and some I should’ve seen a long time ago… Let’s get into it!
The Martian (by Andy Weir) // I have actually read this book! And I absolutely loved it. So I’m really curious to see how I’ll like the movie. The trailer looked really great -even though I think it was kind of telling already? Like, if you haven’t read the book before, you already learned A LOT just by watching that trailer. Too much, I think.
The Scorch Trials (by James Dashner) // As some of you may know, I didn’t really like this trilogy in book format. I did however, like the first movie. So I’m excited to watch the sequel! YOU GO DYLAN O’BRIEN!
Still Allice (by Lisa Genova) // This seems very different from what I usually read/watch. I haven’t read this book, but I’ve heard such amazing things about it. So I want to read it, and watch the movie!
Room (by Emma Donoghue) // Same situation as above. I really need to read this book and watch the movie, because everyone seems to love it.
Me and Earl and the Dying Girl (by Jesse Andrews) // I’m not sure about this one… I haven’t really been reading this genre for a bit, and so I’m not sure I’ll actually end up reading the book. But I really want to watch the movie! I know, blasphemy, right?
The Giver (by Lois Lowry) // I haven’t read this book nor have I seen the movie. But in this case, I really want to do both!
If I Stay (by Gayle Forman) // Probably won’t read the book, but I’m really interested in the movie!
Wild (by Cheryl Strayed) // I have this one on my shelf, and I’m really excited to read it. But I also LOVE Reese Witherspoon, so I’m incredible excited to watch the movie as well.
Unbroken (by Laura Hillenbrand) // This isn’t something I would’ve picked up normally. But I saw a trailer from the movie, which looked incredible. Then I heard that Angelina Jolie directed it -I think? So that made me even more excited.
The Shining (by Stephen King) // I know… No, I’ve never read the Shining. And no, I’ve never seen the movie. I know, SHAME. But I really want to do so! I feel like this is a huge hole in my reading culture. So I have to watch it -unlike his “It” which I will never read or watch. Clowns, hell no.
