Books on the Big Screen

There are many movies coming out which are based on great books.  I'm going to showcase a few that I'm excited about.  

Dear John by Nicholas Sparks- It came out yesterday!

Percy Jackson and The Olympians: The Lightening Thief by Rick Riordan
It comes out February 12th.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney- It comes out March 19th. 
My students LOVED this book and this trailer is hysterical!

The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks- It comes out March 31st.  
Even though Miley Cyrus (insert my disgust here) is in this movie, 
I still think it looks good. I mean who doesn't love Sparks?!

Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll- it comes out March 5th.

Other movies coming out that don't have official trailers yet:
-Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I by J.K. Rowling. 
It comes out in November.
-Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader by C.S. 
Lewis. It comes out in December
-Eclipse by Stephanie Meyer- it comes out June 30th.
-Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert- It comes out in August.  
If you haven't read this memoir, you need to. It is one of my 
favorite books!

Which movies are you excited for?


  1. I think I'm the most excited about the movie Beastly which is based on the book by Alex Flinn. It looks really good.

  2. Rebecca- Thanks for the recommendation. I will check it out!


I really appreciate your comments. Thank you!
