Top Ten Tuesday: Book to Movie Adaptations I Want to Watch

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.


Upcoming Releases

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 Sandman

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.


Which book to movie adaptations are you most excited to see?

    I am not a huge Gaiman fan, so you should take my opinion with a grain of salt. But, Stardust the movie is a million times better than the book! It made my list of movies that are better than the book this week :p

    My TTT.

      It’s great to hear another perspective, especially since I don’t remember any of my friends telling me their thoughts about the book or movie of Stardust. It’s always intriguing how far, for better or for worse, the movie adaptation can venture away from its source material.
