Books With Movie Deals!

Posted by Steph on March - 5 - 2013

So at work the other day I decided to put together a book to movie display and while doing some research, I couldn’t believe all of the books being made into movies coming out in the next couple of years that I came across! Some of them haven’t been “green-lighted” yet, but all of them do have some sort of “movie deal”. Who knows if all of them will reach the green-lit stage, but the way things have been going for books being made it movies, it would seem that chances are high. I have read quite a few of them already like:

Laini Taylor’s Daughter of Smoke and Bone

Madeleine L’Engle’s  A Wrinkle in Time

Markus Zusak’s  The Book Thief

Veronica Roth’s Divergent

Lowry’s The Giver

Libba Bray’s A Great and Terrible Beauty

Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby

Suzanne Colin’s Catching Fire

Ally Condie’s Matched

Ransom Rigg’s Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

Melissa Marr’s Wicked Lovely

(Unfortunately)Stephenie Meyer’s The Host

I’d have to say I’m most excited for Cassandra Clare’s City of Bones to come out! I love Lily Collins, who they have hired to play the main character, but I despise who they picked for the heartthrob of the series, Jace. He is seriously my number 1 of all time bookman, but he is soo not what I pictured. So no matter what you do…DO NOT look him up online or watch the movie before you read this series. It will ruin so, so, so much.

I’m also really, really excited for The Night Circus  by Erin Morgenstern whenever it gets made.  It was easily my favorite book of 2012.

And I can’t wait for Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters to come out, since I did like Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief even if it wasn’t like Riordan’s book AT ALL. The movie, setting the book aside, was entertaining.

Now my TBR list has grown exponentially to include the following books being released as movies in the future:

Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

Uglies by Scott Westerfield

Wake by Lisa McMann

Delirium by Lauren Oliver

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Seth Graham-Smith

Monument’s Men by Robert Edsel

Maze Runner by James Dashner

How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff

The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman

Fallen by Lauren Kate

Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card

Devil in the White City by Erik Larson

If anyone  knows of any others let me know so I can add them to the list! Better get to reading…
