Top Ten Tuesday: Movie Adaptations

hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

Movie Adaptations I Need/Want to Watch:

Paper Towns (2015) - I don't know what happened here.  I meant to see it in theaters but time just got away from me and frankly, I don't think it was in theaters for that long either.  I was incredibly surprised by it. Hopefully, I'll still enjoy it.

Atonement (2007) - I think I would enjoy this movie, I really like period pieces but I want to read the book first.  Honestly, that's the only reason I haven't watched this movie yet.

The DUFF (2015) - I was on the fence when this movie originally came out and now I've decided that I might actually enjoy this movie, so it's here on the list.  Although, I haven't read the book yet.  I may need to get on that.

The Martian (2015) - I'm not sure if I'll read this book, but I've heard extraordinary things about it.  I definitely want to see this movie though!

Movie Adaptations I'm Looking Forward To:

Mockingjay Part II (November 20, 2015) - This one's coming so soon.  I'm incredibly excited to see how this series makes its cinematic finale.

The 5th Wave (January 15, 2016) - Okay, so I haven't read this book and I haven't watched the trailer but I have a feeling that I will enjoy this story.  I'm definitely going to read the book before seeing the movie though.

Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children (March 4, 2016) - I think this book will make an excellent movie and I'm even more interested in seeing it because Tim Burton is directing!

Captain America: Civil War (May 6, 2016) - YES.  AND. NO. *Sobs*

The BFG (July 1, 2016) - This is my favorite Roald Dahl book from when I was a kid.  I loved reading it and now I'm excited to see it come to life on screen!

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (November 18, 2016) - We get more!  And I'm really excited and also kind of nervous.  I want this to be so good and to expand the wizarding world as we know it, but I'm also think this could be a poor attempt to fill the Harry Potter void.

The Death Cure (TBA) - I'm very interested to see where this goes because The Scorch Trials took on a life of its own.  I liked it very much, it was just very different. I'm wondering how much of the book will be in this installment.

Looking For Alaska (TBA) - This is one of my favorite John Green books so naturally I'm very excited, but I also have my reservation about this becoming a movie.  I think if they get the spirit of the book right, it'll be good.


  1. Great list! The BFG made my list this week, too - I'm very excited for it. :D I think I'm going to have to check out The Martian, because everyone seems to be going crazy over it.

  2. Fantastic Beasts has the potential to be awesome but it could also be rather terrible. It is nerve-wracking to have to wait for it.
    I also had not known Miss Peregrine's was going to be a movie until today. How exciting!
    Thanks for sharing!

  3. GREAT list! Clearly Mockingjay made the top of my list too this week ;) As much as I know it'll be sad and painful, I NEED closure LOL! Their among my favourite book-to-movie adaptions in any case. Fantastic Beasts, naturally! I'm dying to get back into the Wizarding World :D I actually saw The Martian (before reading the book too) and I really enjoyed it! Some people seem to think that the book is better but I've also heard that some people actually enjoyed the movie even more!

  4. I still haven't read The DUFF! I really want to so I can watch the movie!

  5. I can't wait for Mockingjay Part 2!
