What other books are hitting the big screen that you know about? Which movies/shows are you most looking forward to?  Let me know in the comments. 


  1. I'm most excited about Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. I am also looking forward to The Light Between Oceans but like Me Before You, I'll wait to see it till it is on DVD. I'll probably watch Beauty and the Beast on DVD too. They did a nice job with Cinderella and I've always liked the story.

    I hope The Nightingale is made into a movie. I think it would be fantastic. Guernsey has been "in development" for years and I'm thinking it probably won't happen.

    1. I am so excited for Beauty and the Beast as well! I agree...The Nightingale would be outstanding. I would definitely want to see that in theaters. I hear you about Guernsey. I am still holding out hope - it's such a good book! Thanks for visiting!

  2. Oh, God. All the Bright Places! I will die. *sobs*

    1. I still need to read it! I imagine it would be very powerful! Thanks for visiting, Joy!

  3. Oh my gosh, that's just too much! Also, I really can't imagine how I'll get out of the cinema in one piece if I watch All the Bright Places! I also just saw a trailer for A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness on Facebook a while ago, but I don't know any specifics. Great compilation! :)

    Meet Your (Contemporary) Match!

    1. I still need to read All the Bright Places....hopefully before it hits theaters. Thanks for visiting!

  4. I can't wait for Girl on the Train (although as much as I love Emily Blunt that is NOT how I pictured Rachel. At all). Fantastic Beasts will be amazing, I'm sure, although I never read the book. Big Little Lies will make a fantastic show. Lots to look forward to!

    1. Yeah, the casting is a bit strange, but Emily Blunt is such a good actress. I am sure she will be awesome. I am looking forward to reading Big Little lies as well. Thanks for visiting, Natalie.

  5. I'm definitely most excited for the next seasons of Outlander!

    1. Me too! I really enjoyed Voyager, so it will be neat to see it come to life. Thanks for visiting!

  6. The three here that I'm most excited for are Miss Peregrine's (even though it looks like they made some very big changes), Fantastical Beasts (well, of course!) and Beauty and the Beast!! One series that I've always wished they would do on screen (either movie or TV) is Gail Carriger's Finishing School books. They would be so fun!!

    1. I have been meaning to read Gail Carringer's Finishing School series. I also have one of her adult novels as well that has been sitting on my shelf FOREVER. Thanks for visiting, Becky!


I really appreciate your comments. Thank you!
