Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Most Anticipated Books to Movies

This week's TTT on The Broke & The Bookish is one that I actually just did recently on a freebie week, so I thought I'd switch it up a little. Then I realized that I'd already done what I was going to do too...10 Books I'd Turn Into Movies. Boo, now what? How about my Top 10 (or as far as I get) most anticipated book to movie adaptations? Sure, why not. :)

1. The Cousins' War series by Philippa Gregory (showing on STARS TV) --I've only read the first in this series, The White Queen, but I really liked it and have the second already. I think it'll make a great miniseries...too bad I don't have cable though!

2. Horns by Joe Hill --I haven't actually read this book yet, but it's on my to-buy and anything with Daniel Radcliffe is okay by me!

3. Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins --duh. Can't wait! I think it's crazy that I've only read this series once, when Mockingjay came out...I am making it a fall goal to reread the series before this comes out!

4. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak --this was probably my favorite book in 2011, so I am apprehensively excited about this movie lol. I really, really want it to transfer well but it's such a huge plot that I'm not sure if it will.

5. Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead --live action will definitely be better than the graphic novel, right? I'm actually wondering if this would be better as a TV series, since it's so long and could spin-off into the Bloodlines series. And they better put Adrian in or I will boycott lol.

6. Divergent by Veronica Roth --super excited about this one, since I just read it recently.

7. Delirium by Lauren Oliver --as much as I disliked the ending of the series, I'd still love to see this first book movie-style.

8. Uglies by Scott Westerfield --I don't think this one is confirmed yet, but I think it would be amazing (as my 13 yo sis would say lol). You can view the official book trailer on Westerfield's blog also!

9. Locke & Key by Joe Hill --I just discovered this graphic novel series and have only read the first 2, but I am in love with it already and so excited to hear it is being made into a movie!

10.The Fault in Our Stars by John Green --I can't believe I almost forgot about this one! Yes, it is going to make me cry like a teenage girl who just broke up with her boyfriend and is now watching The Notebook, but I don't care! ;)

And 2 book to movie adaptation I am NOT looking forward to and should just go straight to the chopping block:
50 Shades of Gray --how how how are they going to make that a movie viewable by anyone??
Hush, Hush --more Twilight-ish, stalkery, watch you while you sleep, I love you so much I have to kill you, love story? No thanks.


  1. I have Starz and am definitely looking forward to this new series...even though I haven't read the book. I'm also really excited for Catching Fire and Divergent. I'm with you on 50 Shades. I've never read the book, but it seems really unappealing as a movie. Great list!
    Natflix&Books' TTT

    1. The first book is really interesting, I should start on the second soon! Thanks for stopping by :)

  2. Oooh! I forgot all about the VA movie!!

    And Horns looks interesting... I'll have to give it a go!

    1. I saw Horns on one of those upcoming movie lists and thought it looked really interesting too! I'd like to read it before the movie, but don't know if I'll get to it lol.

  3. Yes yes yes to tfios and catching fire! Can't wait for those too. And Divergent, although I haven't read it yet. I think I'm going to download it this week, I need some new YA in my life.
    I get so many great recommendations from your blog ;)

    1. Yes, get Divergent!
      And thank you so much, that's so sweet! :)
