“Books and movies are like apples and oranges. They both are fruit, but taste completely different.” – Stephen King
The Broke and the Bookish Top Ten Tuesday for this week gave me a mixed ‘feels’.
November 10: Top Ten Book To Movie Adaptations I’m Looking Forward To or Ten Book To Movie Adaptations I Still Need To Watch
I love books and I love movies, too! But, a lot of novel-based movies are not as good as its printed counterpart.
You agree with me?

Note: This list only includes books that I’VE READ.

— UPCOMING BOOK TO MOVIE ADAPTATIONS I AM EXCITED TO WATCH —
1. Me Before You (Me Before You, #1) by Jojo Moyes
Yep. It’s on the works, now with complete cast and crew and Game of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke will play as Louisa Clark. The movie will be out on June 03, 2016.
2. Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell
That’s according to Rainbow herself. 🙂 Thought the latest news in that DreamWorks will do the film version but shooting and cast is yet to be revealed.
3. The Rosie Project (Don Tillman #1) by Graeme Simsion
The movie is currently in development under Sony Pictures. Jennifer Lawrence of The Hunger Games has, sadly and recently dropped out of the movie. I am still excited, though!
4. The Selection (The Selection, #1) by Kiera Cass
Yes, I am still annoyed at Eadlyn of The Heir but I will not deny that I loved the first three novels of The Selection. So I was excited to know that Warner Bros. bought the rights to make a movie adaptation of this series!
5. The First Phone Call from Heaven by Mitch Albom
This gets me too excited! 😀 Last 2014, Warner Bros. acquired the rights to produce a movie based on this book, that you know I truly love. There are no current news about its cast yet but I will be surely so happy if this project will push through. 🙂
6. Allegiant (Divergent, #3) by Veronica Roth
Yes, I am not a fan of how this series ended but of course I will still watch this film! The movie will be released on March 18, 2016.
7. Mockingjay (The Hunger Games, #3) Part 2 by Suzanne Collins
I also don’t like the ending of this awesome YA series but still, I just want to know how the screenplay would interpret the written words for one last time. 🙂 This will be out on November 20!
8. The Choice by Nicholas Sparks
The Choice is one of my Top 10 favourite Sparks novel. (Here’s Part II) So I was giddy when he announced that it will be made into a movie. BUT, the trailer made me sad. I can clearly sense that the screenplay is entirely different. The worst part is that they ‘changed’ the part that made me love the story most.
So there! Glad to share all of these with you!
