Book to Movie Adaptations I Am Anticipating!

I always at least TRY to read the book before I watch the movie. In some cases, I just don't have time to catch up on ALL the adaptations because there are just too many of them and I either can't get my hands on the book or my fiance doesn't want to wait until I read 100+ books before I get around to a specific book that has been turned into a movie. But I try. 

I've noticed that there are a lot more young adult book to movie adaptations coming out soon but I'll be listing any and all that I am personally interested in.

I will try to keep them in order pertaining to when the movie releases but as I get farther along into 2015+, I probably won't have exact dates so they will get jumbled.

I will also either state that I have 'READ' the book or 'NEED TO READ'.

I'm not adding Fifty Shades of Gray because I never plan on reading the book or watching the movie.

Are there any other book to movie adaptations that are coming out soon that I didn't add?

MIA

I've been neglectful of this blog for a month or so now for reasons I cannot yet discuss or divulge but it won't be long, so if you are still following me, hang in there! I'll be back!

I finished 'A Storm of Swords' by George R.R. Martin this morning and am currently reading 'The Ring & the Crown' by Melissa De La Cruz (thanks to Wendy Darling!)

I am also currently working on a 'Books to Movie Adaptations That I Am Anticipating' post so keep an eye out for that in the next week or so. 

Happy Reading!

Friday Finds #30


Friday Finds is a blog meme hosted over at Should Be Reading that highlights the books you found and added to your To Be Read list, whether you found them online or in a bookstore and etc. They are not necessarily books that you purchased!

I recently discovered the '1001 Books to Read Before You Grow Up' list and have been adding lots of them to my 'to-read' list on Goodreads. I've also got a stack of about 30 of the ones that I already one added to my TBR pile for the year. Here are a few that I don't own that I will need to keep my eyes open for!


Madame Doubtfire by Anne Fine
The Mouse and the Motorcycle by Beverly Cleary
The Red Pony by John Steinbeck
