Book to Movie

Don't hate me, it's true!

It's a dream, I'm sure to have a book that you lost sleep, wept, and ripped hair out over to be optioned for a movie. I would love it!
We all loved Harry Potter and it’s okay to admit that Twilight was great too, especially that last one, right?! Recently we've had Beautiful Creatures, Life of Pi, and The Great Gatsby. Here’s a quick look at what’s coming soon to a cinema near you.  J

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
There are so many great things to say about the characters, plot, and all around amaze-ball-ness that these books hold. So cool, so fun, and check out the e-book only series on Mangus Bane; 12 books in 12 months.
Coming out August 21, 2013

Divergent by Veronica Roth
AWESOME series, (book three is on it's way soon too!) hubby and I both really enjoyed these. The movie is slated for March 21, 2014

Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card
A long time coming to be sure! Ender's Game is perfect for middle grade readers who like adventure and any adult to likes a little too. :)
Due out November 1, 2031

The Maze Runner by James Dashner
A page turner for sure! A maze with scary creatures and everything is on a time limit.
Coming on Valentines since its so heart warming. :) February 14, 2014

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
A WWII book about a little girl who steals books and shares them with others and by the way, it's narrated by Death. This book has emotion to spare! Super popular with book clubs because it stays with you and there's so much to talk about. Bring tissues.
Slated for January 17, 2014

If I Stay by Gayle Forman
A girl who is in a coma following a terrible accident has an out of body experience decided to live or die. Heart felt, strong resonating writing and memorable characters. Look for book two, to read as well.
Release date for film not yet published.

Have you read any of these? Which are you most looking forward to seeing?

Ooh! I hadn't heard that If I Stay was being made into a movie. Exciting! I'm SUPER excited for Divergent and City of Bones! I love both those books!

The Book Thief is on my to-read and I can't wait to get to it! It sounds amazing!
