Top Ten Tuesdays are a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. The topic of November 10, 2015 is: Top Ten Book To Movie Adaptations I’m Looking Forward To
Here are the top ten book to movie adaptions that I’m looking forward to:
1. An Ember in the Ashes – The second book will not be released until 2016, but it was announced that there will already be a film adaption! According to IMDb, it will be released in 2017.
2. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 — The film adaption of Suzanne Collin’s Mockingjay will be released in ten days from now: November 20, 2015!
3. Throne of Glass — I love the Throne of Glass books, so I was very excited when I learned that there would be a film/TV adaption. (See: Throne of Glass Optioned as a TV Show post)
4. The School for Good and Evil — I’ve read that there’s supposed to be a film adaption of Soman Chainani’s book, but there’s no announced release date or cast yet… 😦
5. Winterspell – I’ve not heard of a film adaption in the making for Claire Legrand’s dark fantasy retelling of the Nutcracker, but if there was one it would be really interesting to see how it was done.
6. Shadowhunters — After deciding not to make a sequel film to City of Bones, it was announced that a TV show based on Cassandra Clare’s The Mortal Instruments would be made.
The last three are already released film adaptions that I’ve not seen and I’m not sure whether I want to see them or not.
7. Insurgent – The sequel film to Divergent, based on the Divergent trilogy by Veronica Roth.
8. The Scorch Trials – This movie is based on the second book of The Maze Runner trilogy by James Dashner. In the book, there are many…intense scenes of unattractive violence…which I think I’d rather not see.
9. Nineteen Eighty-Four — I actually do have no intention of watching the film adaption of George Orwell’s classic dystopia because the book itself was rather violent.
10. Eragon – A movie was made of the first book of Christopher Paolini’s Inheritance Cycle. I actually have seen this and whoever made it, completely ruined the story line, characters, etc. As a result of my dissatisfaction with the film adaption, I have no intention of ever re-watching this.
