Top Ten Book to Movie Adaptations I Still Need to Read and/or Watch

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

This week's actual topic is Ten Books I'd Love to Read With My Book Club/If I Had A Book Club but since I really don't like the idea of being in a book club I decided to pick my own topic. There are several books that have been made in to movies lately and there are many that I either have read and need to see or haven't read or seen!

#1. The Maze Runner by James Dashner
I really enjoyed this series and I'm excited to see the movie but I am waiting to watch it with my friend!

#2. If I Stay by Gayle Forman
Wasn't the hugest fan of this book but I do still want to see the movie!

#3. The Giver by Lois Lowry
Really didn't enjoy this book but I'm still willing to give the movie a chance.

#4. Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand
Really want to read this book and then see the movie!

#5. Harry Potter Books by J.K. Rowling
Currently working through the books then I'll watch the movies!

#6. The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak
I'm quite interested in this book and it's movie adaptation

#7. Warm Bodies by Issac Marion
Didn't realize this was a book till I went to make this list but I really want to see the movie

#8. Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell
I saw the movie last year and I'm hoping to read the book sometime soon!

#9. Les Miserables by Victor Hugo
I am partway through the book and when I get around to finishing it I'll watch the musical!

#10. Insurgent by Veronica Roth & Mockingjay (Part 2) by Suzanne Collins
These aren't out yet but I couldn't come up with a tenth and I will definitely be watching these in the theater when they release!

What a great list!
1. I've seen the Maze Runner and thought it was alright. I never read the book though.
2. I wasn't a fan of the book or the movie for If I Stay, but I know tons of people who love it
3. I really liked both the book and the movie! The movie was a little different, but I thought it was done really well overall.
6. I didn't read the book, but the movie The Book Thief was really good! Highly recommend it!
10. I'm with you on this one!

Numbers 2, 3 and 8 are really good movies! Though I haven't read Warm Bodies, the movie is quirky and unique. (If you can get past the brain-eating bit.) Still have to read The Maze Runner and Mockingjay as well as see both movies. Hopefully I'll get the latter read soon since I preordered the movie the other day.

Morgan-Thanks! I was really hoping to like If I Stay more than I did since it was so hyped up! Glad to know The Giver and The Book Thief are good!

Danica-I know how you feel, I can't believe I haven't watched or read some of these yet!

Elizabeth-Thanks!

Rissi- Glad to know you liked them! If you did I'm sure I will too! I'm curious to see what Warm Bodies is like since it sounds really good! The Maze Runner and Mockingjay were both pretty good reads! Hope you enjoy!

I've read most of the books on your list. But as far as movies go, I've only seen Les Mis, Harry Potter, and Gone With the Wind. Like you, I'll be seeing Mockingjay Part 2 when it comes out.

Dawn-Yeah I often read the book then take forever to get around to seeing the movie!
