Top Ten Tuesday: Movie Adaptations I Still Haven’t Seen

Hello!

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful people at The Broke and Bookish!

It seems that book to movie adaptations have been pretty popular recently (YAY!). And the film industry has begun to show a lot of interest in in YA, and even some MG, fiction with many movies based on YA books in the works. (YAY!!!)

Well, this isn’t just a new phenomenon and there are still quite a few book to movie adaptations that I haven’t seen yet. Usually when I read a book and a movie is made I immediately rush to see it. With that in mind, not only are the titles in this list movies I have yet to see but they’re also books I haven’t yet read (for whatever reason).

  1. Haha, I haven’t see most of these, too. I really liked Holes, and recommend that one. But Percy was a major let down.

    I do want to see Because of Winn-Dixie and Angus. I’ve heard good things about Angus, and I love the book Winn-Dixie.

  2. FLIPPED. FLIPPED. Oh my goodness that movie is a GEM! If you enjoyed the book then you’ll love the movie! Even if you haven’t read the book you’ll still enjoy it. It’s really so sweet and such a well done film.

    I also love Bridge to Terabithia. One of my favorite book to movie adaptions for sure!

  3. I really loved the film adaptation of The Perks of Being a Wallflower – I thought it was beautiful – this is coming from someone who almost never likes the film adaptation of a book.
