Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Book To Movie Adaptations I’m Looking Forward To or Ten Book To Movie Adaptations I Still Need To Watch

I’m always a little slow on the uptake when it comes to the latest movies perhaps it’s because I rarely watch TV or maybe it’s because I refuse to pay those astronomical ticket prices for something I’m sure I’ll wish I had my money back less than halfway throughout the movie or perhaps it’s because Hollywood keeps recycling the same old tired crap or maybe it’s all the above.

Having said that there are a handful of movies I’d like to see that began their humble beginnings as books.

  1. The Lovely Bones
  2. The Fault in Our Stars
  3. The Perks of Being a Wallflower
  4. Gone Girl
  5. One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest
  6. Lord of the Flies
  7. The Giver
  8. To Kill a Mockingbird

Now mind you although I’d like to see the movie, I shall haven’t read the books, and I refuse to see the movie before I’ve read the book. It’s a rule of mine. It’s rather psychosomatic I know. I feel if the movie is crap than there’s a good chance the book will be too and won’t read it. But I could be wrong.

    Well, unless there’s a different book/movie out there that I am unaware of, you’re going to have a hard time finding #2 on your list. 😉 Oh, and if I were you, I’d skip #6, and, if you haven’t already, do “Seabiscuit” instead. GREAT book, and the movie was just as good (a rarity, I know).

      Thanks for catching the typo. 🙂 Hmm. Will have to consider Seabiscuit. I’ve heard good things about it, but never really considered it.

        Seriously, the book is in my top ten list and the movie, well, let’s just say it’s one I purchased and will watch again and again. 🙂
