Top Ten Books to Movies We Can't Wait For

I interrupt Top Ten Tuesday momentarily to let you know that signups for our 6th Annual Secret Santa end in a few days!! We've got ~245 people signed up as of right now and I'm wondering if we are going to beat our signups of ~315 that we had last year.  Sign-up here for this fun bookish secret santa -- great way to make friends and spread some holiday cheer!!

Top ten books to movies we just can't wait for! 

Jana's Pick

1 -- The 5th Wave - I can't wait for this movie! I love the book a lot, and I'm so excited to see how it translates to the big screen.

Julia's Picks

2 -- Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part II - I am so excited to see the ending to this series in a few weeks! I think that based on the previous movies this has the potential to be really amazing.

3 -- Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them - I will always be excited to see more in the Harry Potter universe. I am really interested to see how they are going to do this; it's a movie based on a fake text book. I also think that this will be an interesting setup for future movies in the Harry Potter Universe.

4 -- Deadpool - I have not read much of the comic series, but I am so excited for this movie. I know Deadpool from some games I've played and general internet hype. But I cannot wait for a rated R comic book movie with a snarky anti-hero lead!

Bridget's Picks

5 -- The Martian - I've heard a lot of great things about this adaptation, and for the first time in a LONG time I'm actually excited to see a movie based on a book! My husband finally finished it and now I think it might be time to go see the movie! I wouldn't be too sad to wait to see it on DVD; I'm not the biggest fan of movie theaters. But I might just have to go!

Jamie's Picks

6 -- Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children : I seriously cannot wait for this!!

7 -- All The Bright Places: It's slated for 2017 and I cannot waiiiiit!!

Daisy's Picks

I second Mockingjay Part II and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and I would LOVE for Vicious to be made into a movie! That would be amazing!

8 -- The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling - I'm excited to see what they'll do with the story this time!

9 -- Alice Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll - I totally loved the first movie they did with this cast, so I'm excited for this!

10 -- Beauty and the Beast by Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve - Do you guys sense a theme here as well? I can't wait for this, it has the most amazing set of actors in it, including Emma Watson, Dan Stevens and Ian McKellen!

And two books Lauren WISHES were made into movies!!

Lauren's Picks

 Vicious by V.E. Schwab - I don't think anyone has bought the rights to this movie yet or that's anything is in the works, but DANG IT... it should be. It would make for an amazing movie.

 The Silo Series by Hugh Howey - C'mon now. Why haven't these books been made into movies yet? Or at the very least... the SyFy channel could make a mini-series!


  1. Oh, wow. I'm so happy someone else has Deadpool on their list!

  2. I can't wait for Through the Looking Glass too! I saw the trailer for the Martian the other day and it looks very good, I just haven't got around to reading it yet and want to do that first... I need more hours in the day :)

  3. I'm super excited for Deadpool myself but I didn't think about it since I don't red comics but great pick! Commercials are hilarious! Same thing for Beauty & the Beast that is my favorite Disney movie. Also first I'm hearing about an Alice sequel. Just YouTubed it and OMG! Oh and Vicious would be a fun movie I hope they make it!

  4. OMG! How did I forget Beauty & the Beast?! Guess because the release date is so far away! LOL! Yeah, let's go with that!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

    1. Scratch the old! Guess I wasn't officially following you! Whoops! Thought I had been, but that's fixed now! ;)

  5. Ooh some good picks :) I totally forgot about Beauty and the Beast!

    Can't wait for Secret Santa!

    Cora @ Tea Party Princess

  6. The Martian is without a doubt my favourite movie adaptation and one of my favourite movies ever. The Jungle Book also looks very inetersting :)

  7. A movie version of All The Bright Places. Cool!

  8. Definitely Fantastic Beasts, and also Jungle Book and The Martian. And a few others, too!

  9. I love this topic and these are some great choices!

  10. Deadpool and Beauty and the Beast are good calls. (Not that Deadpool's making a cameo in Beauty and Beast as that would be a tad random... but could be an hilarious comic!). The trailer for Jungle Book looks intriguing, for sure!!

  11. !!! How could I have forgotten to add the last Hunger Games movie to my list ahhh. Yes, I'm very excited to see the conclusion for that series as well :D

    Bridget, I really enjoyed The Martian! I'm not sure if you've watched Gravity but I found this movie was wayyy better storywise. Also the cast in that movie is so great. I hope you enjoy it!

    I haven't read Vicious but I'm all for superpowers and villains heheh. Great picks!

  12. Daisy, I LOVE your picks!!! Completely agree with Beauty and the Beast. Can't believe I forgot to put that...

  13. How did I forget about the new Mockingjay?!?! Very excited for that one!
