Top Ten Tuesday: Movies I Need To See
November 10, 2015
Top Ten Tuesday is a feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish in which they select a topic every week, and the rest of us get to make Top Ten lists based on that topic. This week’s topic: Ten Book To Movie Adaptations I Still Need To Watch. For those of you who know me well, I am dreadfully behind in keeping up with movies. It’s just not something I’ve been good at for quite some time. It’s not that I’m not interested, it’s just that there always seems to be something else I want or need to do. With that in mind, here are the movies, I still HAVE to see:
Wild by Cheryl Strayed – I can never say enough how much this book impacted me. I can’t even believe I haven’t seen the movie yet. Hopefully soon!
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak – One of my all time favorite books. It’s a travesty that I haven’t taken the time to watch this yet!
The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini – Although it’s not my favorite book by Hosseini, I was definitely moved by it. I think it would be extremely difficult to watch this one on the big screen!
The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold – This book haunted me for months after I read it. I can’t even imagine what I would be like after watching the movie.
My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picoult – I haven’t read too much by Picoult, but I definitely was into this particular novel of hers. I think it would make for a very strong, but emotional movie. Why is it that the best movies are often gut wrenching?
Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden – This isn’t one of my favorite reads of all time, but I am intrigued with the concept and lifestyle of a geisha. I’m curious how it would play out on the big screen.
The Giver by Lois Lowry – I’m embarrassed to admit that I still haven’t actually read this one, but based on the recommendations of trusted readers, I know I will. I definitely want to read the book before I check it out though!
The Maze Runner by James Dashner – I enjoyed this book, but I didn’t looooove it. I still want to catch the movie if I get a chance though.
The Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling – I’ve only read through Book 3 at this point, and I’ve only seen through Movie 1. I have all of the movies on my DVR so I hope to catch them during the doldrums of winter this year!
Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins – I’m happy to say that I’m not horribly behind on this movie series! Maybe I can catch up in enough time to catch the newest one in an actual theater!
What book to movie adaptations are you wanting to see?
