Anticipated Book to Movie Adaptations in 2018

.
image source: here. edited by me.
In the past few years, there are so many movies that are adapted from books. I used to write a bunch of movie adaptation reviews on this blog, but I didn't do it for the past 2 years or so—even though I watched quite a lot of book-to-movie adaptations. This year, I'm trying to get back on track and write reviews for the movie adaptations that I watched. To make things easier, I'm going to list the movie adaptations that I'm excited to watch in 2018 here. If you have any movie adaptation suggestions that I missed in this post, please share it in the comments below 😁😁 *There will be several of images and videos, so please be patient with the loading.

The Death Cure by James Dashner (Release Date: January 24, 2018)
This is the last installment in the Maze Runner trilogy; and to be honest, this wasn't my favorite book either. The movie adaptation was released last month, but I didn't watch it in the theaters because my lack of motivation—knowing how much I don't like the ending. Despite everything, I still want to watch it because I do really enjoy the first two books (and because Minho 😉💕); but I'll probably watch it online someday.
Every Day by David Levithan (Release Date: February 22, 2018 )
How come I didn't know about this earlier?! If you didn't know already, Every Day is one of my favorite books back in 2013. It has a very interesting premise about A, who lives in a different body every single day—but then fell in love with one girl. I seriously have no idea how this movie adaptation is going to portray the story. But I hope it will do the book justice 😆😆.
Love, Simon (Original Title: Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli) (Release Date: March 16, 2018 )
If you've read my review on this book (click the link on the title to read it), you'll know how much I adore the story because of its' cuteness that makes me giggle a lot. It's just a fun and light read that makes me smile. The trailer looks promising and I'm definitely looking forward to see if it's as adorable as the book 😍.
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline (Release Date: March 29, 2018)
I read this book last year, knowing it's going to be adapted into a movie soon. It wasn't exactly my favorite book, but I'm still highly anticipating the movie adaptation because it just looks super cool! I think the movie made several changes to suit the current generation (since the book refers to a lot of retro games), but I'm already loving the visual effects seen in the trailer above! 💕💕
A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle (Release Date: March 9, 2018)
I actually know nothing about this book. I've seen it several times on Goodreads, but was never drawn to it. But the movie trailer really intrigued me and it looks so dreamy and magical 😍😍. The casts seems promising as well. I'm probably going to watch this movie adaptation on its own, because I'm not planning to read the book in the future.
12 Strong (Original Title: Horse Soldiers by Doug Stanton) (Release Date: January 31, 2018)
Another one that's already out in the theaters last month but I didn't get to watch it. I just heard recently from my cousin that she really liked this movie. And I found out that it's adapted from a book written by Doug Stanton. Hopefully I can watch it online soon :)
Crazy Rich Asians' by Kevin Kwan (Release Date: August 17, 2018)
I knew about this book from a friend of mine who asked if I've read it or not. Unfortunately, I haven't. But the story sounds pretty lighthearted and fun. So I'm looking forward to seeing the movie adaptation instead of reading the book. The casts are a collection of beautiful asians too 😍😍
The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken (Release Date: August 3, 2018)
I've heard about this dystopian series a lot back when it was recently released in 2012. However, I didn't get the chance to read it even though a lot of people gave amazing reviews for this book. For this one, I'm actually interested in reading the books first before watching the movie adaptation; because usually there's a lot of missing details in a dystopian movie adaptation. Let's see if I can make time for it 😂😂
Boy Erased by Garrard Conley (Release Date: September 28, 2018)
This book is a memoir about the son of a baptist pastor who feels conflicted about his sexuality. When I saw the news on this movie adaptation, I'm really excited because there's Russell Crowe and Nicole Kidman in it! I actually adore that beautiful book cover; but I think I'll pass reading the book 😂
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han (Release Date: TBA)
Now this is something I'm highly anticipating; because I absolutely adore the story (and Peter Kavinsky, obviously). So far, I'm feeling a bit so-so about the casts. Feeling unsure if they'll portray the characters perfectly or not. Because as I was reading, I certainly have my own version of Lara Jean and Peter Kavinsky in my head. We'll have to see how it goes in the movie adaptation. There's no release date yet, but I'll update when there's anything new about it 😉.
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows (Release Date: April 20, 2018)
I've read this book a longggg time ago, around 2010, and I hardly remember what the story's about. I do remember that I quite enjoyed it (I gave it a 4 star rating on Goodreads), and I also remember thinking about the lengthy book title. I guess when the movie comes out, my memory about this book will be refreshed!
Ashes in the Snow (Original Title: Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys) (Release Date: TBA)
Here's another one of my favorite book! It's one of the earliest books that I reviewed on this blog 😄. I heard they changed the title because they don't want to be mistaken with the Fifty Shades of Grey series 😂😂 And I do think that's a really good decision, because for me, the story of this book is waaaayy better than that. Between Shades of Gray is a historical fiction set during World War II. I hope the movie adaptation will be as compelling as the book.
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald by J.K. Rowling (Release Date: November 16, 2018)
The last one is the continuation of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. There's really no book to compare this movie with; but I might as well just include it here 😂. I enjoyed seeing the first movie, although not exactly loving it too much. I'm really looking forward to see more Johnny Depp in this one; since in the last movie he only showed up at the end. Still have to wait quite a while though, because it's coming out towards the end of the year.

 
Those are the 13 movies that I'm looking forward to seeing so far. Is there anything that I'm missing out on? If I missed something, feel free to tell me about it in the comments below. I'm planning to start writing more Movie Adaptation Reviews, so hopefully I'll be able to this year! Bye for now!
