Books on the Big Screen (11)

There are so many fantastic books being made into TV shows and movies. Being the bookworm that I am, I love to read the book before I watch the movie or TV show. In fact, I just read Big Little Lies last week--just in time before the show premieres next month.  Here are some of the adaptations I've had my eye on!

Wonder by R.J Palacio - April 7th
The Circle by David Eggers - April 28th
Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon - May 19th

My Cousin Rachel by Daphne du Maurier - July 14th
The Dark Tower by Stephen King - July 28th
A Wrinkle in Time by Madeline L'Engle - July 28th
The Mountain Between Us by Charles Martin - October 20th
Let it Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson and Lauren Miracle - November
Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie - November 22nd
American Gods by Neil Gaiman (coming to Starz in 2017)

Voyager by Diana Gabaldon (Outlander series on Starz)

What books that are hitting the big screen (or small screen!) are you most looking forward to? Are you like me in that you have to read the book before you see the movie?  Let me know what you think!


  1. I am looking forward to The Zookeeper's Wife. I never read the book but the trailer looks excellent and I'm a little familiar with the story. I didn't know Between Shades of Gray was being made into a movie. That is wonderful! (as long as they don't ruin it). I think Let it Snow will be cute. I don't have much hope for Big Little Lies or Before I Fall but hopefully Everything, Everything will be good too.

    I just watched Hidden Figures (didn't read the book yet) and it was wonderful. I've heard that some think the movie is better than the book because the story flows better and in the book it is kind of disjointed and jumps around. I usually prefer to read the book and then watch the movie but not when it comes to nonfiction or biography. Great list Christina! I've found some new ones I hadn't known were being made into movies. I hope some of the movies on the "in development" list actually get made. I know that The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society has been on the list for years. The Nightingale would be a fantastic movie so I hope that gets adapted too.

    1. I hope to read Zookeeper before it comes out! I've heard good things. I also want to read Between Shades. I love Sepetys!
      I'm glad you enjoyed Hidden Figures. I would love to see that movie/read the book as well. Thanks for visiting, Christina!

  2. But E&P is not happening anymore.Also you forgot Sebastian Stan's upcoming movie

    1. That's a shame! Last I heard that Rainbow Rowell wrote the screen play for it. A lot of times the movie falls through "in development." It's always a bummer when that happens. Maybe they will revive it in the future. I do not follow Sebastian Stan, so which movie are you referring to? Thanks for visiting!

  3. So many, I had no idea!! I am so incredibly excited for Beauty and the Beast (B&B always has a special place in my heart--first movie hubby and I watched together!♥). Daughter and I are also very excited about Before I Fall, but I hope they do it justice.

    1. Me too. Beauty and the Beast is my favorite Disney movie of all time! I hope they do Before I Fall justice as well. The trailer looks decent. Thanks for visiting, Becky!


I really appreciate your comments. Thank you!
