Top Ten Book To Movie Adaptations I’m Looking Forward To

Top Ten Tuesday button

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature from The Broke and the Bookish where we make all kinds of bookish lists. This week’s topic is Book to Movie Adaptations!

I like book adaptations because it’s cool to see favorite books come to life on the big screen (when they’re done well.) And, if I haven’t read the book yet, sometimes a movie will inspire me to pick it up.  Here are the Top Ten Book to Movie Adaptations I’m Looking Forward To:



Goodreads | IMDB

Now Playing

I loved the book and hear the movie is fantastic. I need to go check it out soon. Check out a movie Q&A with author Emma Donoghue.

Can’t wait! Check out some movie teasers.


The Divergent Series: Allegiant

Goodreads | IMDB

In Theaters: March 18, 2016

Allegiant part two is called Ascendant and I guess will follow a year later. Wonder if any changes will be made to the ending!

miss peregrine

With Tim Burton and Danny Elfman working on the adaptation expectations are high! Follow the movie’s Facebook feed for updates:

With The Hunger Games and Divergent movies winding down will this scifi thriller help to fill the void? Get updates on their official twitter feed:

me before you

Me Before You

Goodreads | IMDB

In Theaters: March 18, 2016

A lot of us hold this book dear to our hearts so hopefully the film will do it justice! Check out some pictures of the cast and behind the scenes shots.

a monster calls

A Monster Calls

Goodreads | IMDB

In Theaters: October 14, 2016

I liked the book a lot when I read it several years ago- good thing there’s time for a reread. Liam Neeson plays the monster in the film.


The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight

Goodreads | IMDB

In Theaters: 2016

This has the potential to be an awesome rom-com! They are pitching it as When Harry Met Sally for the younger generation.

before i fall

Before I Fall

Goodreads | IMDB

In Theaters: 2016

My favorite book of Oliver’s – this Mean Girls meets Groundhog Day story should translate well to film. Zoey Deutch is set to star.

ready player one

Ready Player One

Goodreads | IMDB

In Theaters: December 15, 2017

A lot of us loved this futuristic, 80s nostalgic love letter to Gaming but have our doubts about a movie adaptation. If done right, it will be awesome! Stephen Spielberg is at the helmbefo though, and I hear he knows his stuff so, let’s cross our fingers 🙂

the royal we

The Royal We

Goodreads | IMDB

Currently In Development

I squealed with delight at the news that this royal romance will be hitting the big screen, with a screenplay by Lauren Graham, and starring Mae Whitman.

the scorpio races

The Scorpio Races

Goodreads | IMDB

Currently In Development

I’m glad to see that movie adaptation is finally getting off the ground!

One other book to movie adaptation that you should keep an eye out for is Brooklyn! It’s in limited release now and it’s definitely worth your time! (Review)

OK so that was a top 12 actually! Also, I’m curious to check out some upcoming book to TV adaptations: Thirteen Reasons Why, Shatter Me, and Famous in Love.

What book to movie adaptations are on your radar?

  1. Ready Player One is on my list! It’s going to be interesting how this one translates into a movie.

  2. Great picks! I’m really excited to see where they go with The Scorpio Races!

    Check out my TTT.

  3. Your whole list is pretty much blowing my mind. I had no idea that these books were being made into movies (and I don’t know how I feel about it, either): Scorpio Races, Ready Player One, A Monster Calls, Me Before You, the 5th Wave, Allegiant. WOW.

  4. I’m excited to see Me Before You but nervous at the same time, as I love the book so much! I would like to watch Room at some point too.

  5. Oh~ I’ve completely forgotten about Ready Player One, this will def be a fun movie!
    Ahh… don’t get me started on The Scorpio Races. It’s on my tbr, must read soon!

  6. The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight and Me Before You would make great movies, but I’ll need a whole box of tissues for Me Before You!

  8. We share a few of the same books on our lists this week but the one you have that has me most interested would have to be Room. i have never heard of it before but it has popped up on so many lists this week I shall have to pick it up!

  9. The trailer for Room looks so different from the book. I sure hope they get Ready Player One right!

    Some great ones on here. I can’t wait to see some of them, some on my list others I didn’t know were coming! Great list lots to look forward too! My Top Ten

  12. Nice list I realized that I forgot to add The Book Thief to my list this week too as I still have to read this book or watch the movie adaptation.

  13. Lucy says:

    I am so excited to see Room, and Peculiar Children I am sure will be awesome. I haven’t actually read Peculiar Children so will have to make sure I do in time! I think you’re right that 5th Wave will be a big hit. I had mixed feelings about the book – I did enjoy it at the time of reading but could never muster up the enthusiasm for the sequel somehow. I think in some ways it will actually work better on screen! My TTT

  14. proxyfish says:

    Wow, so looking forward to these! Great list! Didn’t know they were making Ready Player One into a film either!

    My TTT

  15. I have to admit…I’m not too psyched for Allegiant. I didn’t like the book at all!

  16. Diana says:

    I hadn’t heard that Miss Peregrine was being made into a movie. Awesome! I really enjoyed the book.

  17. JJ says:

    Cannot wait to see Mockingjay Part 2 and Allegiant (though I have still yet to read the book of Allegiant, I will have to get on that before the movie comes out!)
