Top Ten Tuesday #56

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

I spend most of the year trying to read books that are being made into movies. There's always so many! No biggie. I enjoy it! I love falling in love with a book and then seeing how someone else imagines it. 

Top Ten Book to Movie Adaptations I'm Looking Forward To

Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children
by Ransom Riggs
I knew this would be the next big Tim Burton film when I read it and I am so excited to see how he does with it!
Expected Release: March 2016

Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them
by J.K. Rowling
As a Potterhead, I cannot wait for this!!!
Expected Release: November 2016

The 5th Wave
by Rick Yancey
I'm not too invested in this series but I remember thinking this would be an awesome movie.
Expected Release: January 2016

A Monster Calls
by Patrick Ness
I'm interested in seeing how they do this one. Will they capture the dark essence that we get from the illustrations in the book?
Expected Release: October 2016

The Death Cure
by James Dashner
I still haven't seen The Scorch Trials yet, though!
Expected Release: February 2017

The Jungle Book
by Rudyard Kipling
Sure, there are lots of versions of this already but I'm still excited for it! It looks like it might follow the books better than the cartoon.
Expected Release: April 2016

Looking For Alaska
by John Green
I think this one is still just a 'might happen someday' but this was my favorite of John's books that I have read so far.
Expected Release: 2016

by Roald Dahl
This one is already a movie but it's old. 1980's old. It's time for a remake. Hopefully Spielberg does a good job with it!
Expected Release: July 2016

And a couple that I am planning on reading soon!

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
by Seth Graham-Smith
I already got this on my Kindle and will be starting it sometime this week! 
Expected Release: February 2016

Me Before You
by Jojo Moyes
I just picked this one up at a thrift store a week or so ago. I have no idea what it's about, though.
Expected Release: June 2016


Let me know what adaptations you are looking forward to! I'd love to know what else I need to read soon! 


  1. Hi! I love reading the book before the movie but I always find I judge the movie harshly if I've read it just before... I can't wait to see most of these too! Although I had no idea Spielberg was remaking the BFG that really is exciting! I really need to read Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, the book sounds amazing and can't wait to see what creepy adaptation Tim Burton can make of it. :)

    Happy Reading and thank you for stopping by our blog,

  2. I loved Looking For Alaska. Hopefully the cast is good!

  3. I can't wait to see what Tim Burton does with Miss Peregrine's! A Monster Calls was such a beautifully heartbreaking book.. it really will be interesting to see if they can bring that to life on the screen. I'm very excited for Me Before You. The book was a total sobfest. lol

  4. A couple of these were on my list too. I'm so curious to see how they handle A Monster Calls - I can only hope they do it justice!!

  5. Nice list!

    Here's a link to my TTT post for this week: http://captivatedreader.blogspot.com/2015/11/top-ten-tuesday-ten-book-to-movie.html

  6. I've not read The 5th Wave nor do I really know a thing about it, but I'm definitely curious! Here's hoping it's a fun way to spend a couple of hours. :)

  7. I can't wait to see The Fifth Wave. The trailer look good, and so does the one for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies! Great list, Stacy. :)

  8. Like you I cannot wait for Fantastic Beasts! And I'm so intrigued by the new Jungle Book movie. I had no idea they were remaking The BFG and I must admit I'm slightly worried. I remember watching the original in school all the time.

    I also really want to see Pride and Prejudice and Zombies though like you I haven't read the book.

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

  9. I'm looking forward to Death Cure already and I haven't seen Scorch Trials yet either!
