This weeks Top Ten Tuesday is an interesting one. Top Ten Book To Movie Adaptations I’m Looking Forward To or Ten Book To Movie Adaptations I Still Need To Watch. Now if you recall on my TTT of Bookish Bad Habits, I tend to not watch movie versions of books. However I have been working on that (I just saw The Martian and it was great) so I think this is a great topic. I am combining movies already released and ones yet to come today. As usual they are in no particular order.
Mockingjay Part Two (by Suzanne Collins). I actually loved the previous movies so I am super stoked for the final one.
The Help (by Kathryn Stockett). I actually need to read the book, it’s on my Kindle, and I want to see the movie as I have heard nothing but good things about it.
Oh yes! Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children done by Tim Burton. I will take my ticket now please.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (by J.K. Rowling). I so miss Harry Potter, both the books and movies, so anything new from that world is exciting to me.
I’m sorry what…sorry, distracted by my movie star boyfriend Charlie Hunnam. So in all honesty I have not read The Lost City of Z (by David Grann), and in all likelihood will not. But will I see the movie, that’s a solid (like his abs) yes.
Olive Kitteridge (by Elizabeth Strout) is another still un-read on my Kindle and still unwatched combo. Francis McDormand is a fantastic actress and I look forward to finally watching/reading this one.
There are certain movies that I feel are part of our culture. One of those is The Silence of the Lambs (by Thomas Harris) and I feel like it is one I do need to watch and just not know the quotes.
I can’t believe I’ve never see To Kill a Mockingbird (by Harper Lee). I have read the book at least a dozen times but have somehow never gotten to the movie.
I have No Country For Old Men (by Cormac McCarthy) on my dvd shelf right now. But have I watched it yet? No. This should be an easy one to accomplish.
My final pick is not a movie but a TV adaptation of the Mortal Instruments series (by Cassandra Clare). Mortal Instruments is one of my all time favorite book series and the movie sucked big time. I’m hoping with a TV series encompassing multiple episodes they will have time to accurately portray the story.
So that is my list of books to movies that I would like to watch. What made your list?
