If you know me, I absolutely love watching book to movie adaptations. That's whh this week's Top Ten Tuesday topic, Top Ten Book to Movie Adaptations I Still Need to Watch, is perfect for me. Even though I watch movie adaptations quite frequently, there are still tons of them that I need to watch. Mostly, I held myself back from watching them because I want to read the book first. Hopefully this list will remind me to watch these movies son :) Here's the list of movie adaptations I still need to watch in no particular order :))
The Lucky One by Nicholas Sparks (2012)
I've read all of Nicholas Sparks' novels but I still haven't got around to watching all the movie adaptations yet. The Lucky One is something that I highly anticipated, because I absolutely love the book and there's Zac Efron in the movie. I've read the book, so there's no more reason for me to put it off.
Safe Haven by Nicholas Sparks (2013) | Book Review
Another Nicholas Sparks' movie adaptation that I haven't watched yet even though I've read the book and loved it as well. I saw bits of it on TV the other day, but I seriously need to make time to watch this again from the beginning.
The Help by Kathryn Stockett (2011)
This book was so popular when it just came out and I really want to read this because I know it's the kind of book I'd like. But unfortunately this book is still in my TBR pile, waiting for me to pick it up. Even so, I still want to read the book first before watching the movie :))
Dark Places by Gillian Flynn (2015)
Compared to Gone Girl, this movie doesn't really get that much attention. However, I'm still interested in reading the book and also watching the movie adaptation.
Silver Linings Playbook by Matthew Quick (2012)
This movie is so popular when it came out and has successfully made me want to read the book before watching it. I already own the book but still haven't picked it up yet because I never read Matthew Quick's work before. Maybe I should just watch the movie first?
Everest (Into Thin Air by Jon Krakauer) (2015)
At first I thought this movie was adapted from the non-fiction book written by Jon Krakauer, but I'm not sure anymore. I don't know if the movie is only inspired by it or based on another story, because apparently there's a bit of an issue between Jon Krakauer and the movie director. Still looking forward to watching this though, but I'm not planning on reading the book.
Before I Go to Sleep by S.J. Watson (2014)
The rating for this movie adaptation isn't that good, but I'm still intrigued because the story sounds very interesting. I'm planning to read the book first before watching the movie though, hopefully I'll enjoy it :)
Pride and Prejudice (2005) by Jane Austen
This one is a classic that always made me curious due to its' popularity. I heard the book isn't very hard to read as well, but I'm always hesitant to pick up a classic book since I couldn't finish The Great Gatsby and Gulliver's Travels. I might watch the movie first just to get me interested in the story.
Atonement by Ian McEwan (2007)
I love a good historical fiction and I heard quite a lot of good things about this one. Not really interested on picking up the book, but I really want to watch the movie :)
Theory of Everything (Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen by Jane Wilde Hawking)
This movie is made based on the memoir written by Stephen Hawking's wife, Jane Hawking. I was intrigued by this movie the moment I saw the beautiful movie poster. So I imagined that the movie would be as beautiful.
And that is it for this week's Top Ten Tuesday post! Do you have any other book to movie adaptations to recommend? You can also share your Top Ten Tuesday links in the comments below so I can check them out :) Bye now!
