This is actually a post that has been in my drafts for absolutely ages now, and so this week I finally got around to finishing it off and completing it! I have been so bad recently at watching book-to-movie adaptations as well as reading books that are being adapted, and so its safe to say that there were alot of books that I could have included on this list.
So here are a few of the book to movie adaptations that I am most desperate to watch!
I’m so annoyed that I missed out on seeing this movie when it was in cinema’s, as I really loved the book by Angie Thomas, and so was super excited to see how the story was translated into film. I also remember hearing some pretty good things about this adaptation around the time that it was released, and so that just makes me even more desperate to finally get round to watching it myself.
This is one that I feel most guilty about not having watched yet, as not only is this adaptation so hyped and well-recieved, but I have also read not only this book, but also the entire series. With the film also a Netflix original, it is so easy for me to watch this one and to fall in love with Noah Centineo as Peter Kavinsky, and so I am desperate to get on this one before the second film is released in February.
I actually originally picked up this book because of the film adaptation, and yet here I am a year later having now read the both The Darkest Minds and Never Fade without yet watching the movie. I always feel like dystopians with a fair bit of action translate quite well into film, and so I am really interested to see if this is the case with this one, as well as to feel a little nostalgia for the time when all the YA dystopians were being adapted.
This is another one that I read such a long time ago now that I even more excited to watch the adaption because it will also remind of the story and details that I have forgotten over time. I feel like this film will just warm my heart as we follow the gorgeous Auggie, plus this one is easy to watch as I believe it is on Netflix, and so I really have no excuse to not watch this one before the end of the year.
This is the newest adaptation on this list, but arguably one of those I am most desperate to get to as this book is one of my favourite contemporaries of all time, and so of course I want to devour this story in every form possible. I just can not wait to return to Daniel and Natasha’s story as they spend just one day together, and I am sure that this will be the perfect romantic film.
This one might come as a little bit of a surprise, as I really didn’t enjoy the book when I read it a few years ago, but I am nonetheless super interested in at least seeing how this movie adapted the book and what it changed, especially as the film was one of the main reasons why I picked this book up in the first place. I also feel like it has been long enough since I read the book to watch the film and see if my thoughts on the story itself have changed at all over time without rereading the book.
What book to movie adaptations do you need to watch? Have you seen any of these – what did you think? What book-to-movie adaptation are you most excited to be released soon?
