Coming Soon: Your Favorite Books as Movies 2014

I had fun perusing this list of 11Most Anticipated Book Adaptations in 2014, published in Publisher's Weekly last week. It looks like the trend of mining popular books for movie ideas is going to continue!

Of the 11 books listed here, I've read:
  • Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand - amazing true story that will make a heart-breaking movie!
  • The Fault in Our Stars by John Green - the one everyone is waiting for.
  • Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn - I didn't love it as much as some people did, but the casting should make this a good movie (and the list also notes that Flynn's Dark Places - which my hsband liked better - will also be adapted to the big screen this year).
  • The Giver by Lois Lowry - can't wait for this one! Especially with Jeff Bridges and Meryl Streep starring.
  • Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins - yikes, we still need to see Catching Fire!
Sounds like a good year of movies, doesn't it?  And those are just the ones I have read. Maybe all these great books as inspiration will get me to the theater more often.

Which book adaptations are you looking forward to seeing on the big screen?

  1. I've only read 3 of the books - not sure if I'll read any more before I watch the movie though.
