Welcome back to Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish! This week it’s the top book-to-movie adaptations I’m most excited to see, whether they’re upcoming or they have already been made. All book covers from Goodreads.
1. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
This book had been on my to-read list for far too long before I decided to give it a try over the summer. Boy was that a good decision. The movie adaptation of the circus had better look as beautiful as the book made it sound.
2. The Sandman Series by Neil Gaiman
The movie adaptation of one of my most beloved graphic novel series could easily end up a tangled mess. It better have the best special effects that I’ve ever seen.
3. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
This is kind of a weird choice because although I wasn’t a huge fan of the story, I still liked the premise and the way that the author came up with the idea for the book. I think with some story tweaks, this could be an awesome movie.
4. Night Film by Marisha Pessl
I finished Night Film this weekend, although I wished that I had finished it much sooner. It was the kind of book that I couldn’t put down, and if it hadn’t been for other commitments like sleep, I probably would have finished it in a couple of days. I’m not entirely sure whether this adaptation is still going to be made, but the IMDb page still says “in development,” so I can hope, right?
Movies that are out (but I still need to read the book!)
5. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
I just started reading this book over the weekend. It’s a bit different than the rest of my reading library lately. I’m excited to mix it up a little!
6. Stardust by Neil Gaiman
As a fan of Neil Gaiman, I’m surprised I haven’t read this book and seen the movie already!
7. Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro
I started reading but for some reason never finished the book. Looking up books for this TTT reminded me to finish this again someday.
8. A Beautiful Mind by Sylvia Nasar
We talked about this movie in a couple of my Psychology classes as an undergrad. I didn’t even know that it was originally a book until browsing through Goodreads.
