Book to Movie Adaptations Master List (2017+)


I've been keeping a list of book to movie adaptations here and there for years but my latest list has become cluttered and neglected so I decided I would just start over from scratch. 

This is not a full list of all the future adaptations. There will be a few I intentionally exclude and others that I just didn't know about or didn't interest me at all.
I will also be adding to this throughout the year so feel free to come back and check out what new adaptations are coming up!

  1. Ooh this is helpful since I like a good adaptation, but keeping track of them or even knowing about em all can be tough. Before I Fall I want to see and I kinda forgot about Ascendant. I didn't know about Everything Everything, or Let It Snow, or a new Murder on the Orient express (hmmm).

    1. It really can be tough keeping track of them and even harder to keep up! Everything, Everything is one I came across for the first time this past week and it comes out pretty soon! :)
