Publisher’s Weekly put out an article this morning ranking the top 10 anticpated book-to-movie adaptations for 2013. Read the article here: The Most Anticipated Book Adaptations In 2013. I just HAD to comment.
I love movies. The only thing better is books, and if you put those two things together you have either a masterpiece or a trainwreck, depending on the adaptation. Here’s hoping 2013 is a “masterpiece” year. This list includes some books I’ve never heard of but look interesting. However, I’m mostly interested in the YA adaptations.
#6 Beautiful Creatures: I HATED this book. It has a beautiful cover and compelling storyline, but I HATED it. Usually if I dislike a series, I’ll still read on to see if it gets any better. With this book, I didn’t continue no matter how many people raved about it. However, the movie looks like it could be good. And for the life of me, I can’t remember how this story ended, I only know it was lame. Anyone out there remember? I just might check out this movie when it gets to Redbox to find out.
#5 The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug: I think this one is a given. I thoroughly enjoyed the first movie, and even though I haven’t read the book (Shame on me, I know), this WILL be a good one with all the excitement and eccentricity of middle earth. You should go see it too.
#4 The Host: I LOVED The Host. Hands down, the best of Stephanie Meyer. Read my book review of The Host HERE. I’m ecstatic to see this movie! I really hope it captures the characters. I will be seeing this movie come March.
#2 Hunger Games: Catching Fire: Another no-brainer, I WILL SEE THIS MOVIE. I love, love, love Suzanne Collins, and I thoroughly enjoyed the first movie adaptation. Read my movie review HERE. I am so excited about this movie, and so is everyone else on the planet. If you haven’t jumped on the bandwagon yet, you should!
#1 Ender’s Game: This is the one that caught me completely off guard. I hadn’t heard of this one coming out as a movie. I read Ender’s Game waaaay back in middle school. I’m super excited to see this movie and I think I’ll re-read Ender’s Game just to get caught back up on the specifics.
What do you guys think? Are you going to see any of these movies?
