Top Ten Books to Films We Can’t Wait For


This week’s Top Ten Tuesday is all about book to film adaptations we’re looking forward to being released! As always Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

November 20, 2015

It’s the final installment to The Hunger Games trilogy! Of course Kelly & Lauren are excited for it. Melissa will have to catch up within the next year or so.

January 15 2016

Lauren’s super excited for this action packed sci-fi film! The others would like to read the novel first.

February 5, 2016

Melissa is wicked excited for this twist on Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice! She’s been anxiously waiting since she heard Matt Smith is in the film. She even convinced Molly to save the date and go see the movie with her. She has plenty of time to read the book too.

March 18, 2016

We’re excited for part 1 of the two part adaptation of Allegiant Veronica Roth.  Well Melissa not so much, but Lauren and Kelly are!

November 18, 2016

We all loved growing up with Harry Potter here on the blog. So there’s no doubt that we’ll be seeing this movie the first week it comes out in theaters.

December 25, 2016

This is one of the films Kelly is most excited for next year.  Learning Samuel L. Jackson is supposed to star in the film has piqued Melissa’s interest.


There’s some mixed feelings about this film releasing. Kelly is completely on board while Melissa is skeptical. Lauren hasn’t read the books yet.  We’ll just have to see.

  1. Oh, I’ve totally forgotten about Shatter Me being optioned for a TV-series. I want it. And I’m definitely hoping for Throne of Glass to be made. A lot of these are on my list as well. And I’m a bit curious about Fallen, even though I haven’t (and probably won’t) read the books. 🙂
    Here’s my TTT

  2. I’m super excited about all of these movies, even the ones who were optioned or in development. I’m happy they are working on a lot of great YA novels, maybe it will get more people to appreciate the fact that there are LOTS of wonderful YA books out there 🙂

      • I’m terribly excited to see Ember too, I’m sure it’s going to have a Roman Empire feel to it, its going to be a different setting to most YAs. There are also lots of YA novels optioned for a TV series, so that’s also worth waiting for 🙂


  3. I am cautiously optimistic about the Fallen movie. I did enjoy the books! And I am hoping that I like the movie version of The Daughter of Smoke and Bones. I could NOT get into the book at all! I think I am one of the few people who didn’t love it!
