Top Ten Tuesday: Book to Movie Adaptations I Still Haven't Seen / Am Excited For

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created by The Broke and the Bookish.  This week I am sharing my shame of not being up to date on all the book to movie releases.

Still Haven't Seen:

1.  Insurgent

Divergent is one of my favorite book series and I have heard that Insurgent is quite different from the book and that upsets me.

2.  Paper Towns

I just...haven't?

3.  The Shining

I only just read the book, but I have no idea when I would watch the movie since I am literally the only one in my family who likes horror.

4.  Watership Down

Watership Down holds a special place in my heart and I have heard this cartoon adaptation of it is terrifying.

5.  A Wrinkle in Time

I have heard this is an abomination.

6.  To Kill a Mockingbird

I read To Kill a Mockingbird in eighth grade English class, yet we never watched the movie.

7.  Gone Girl

I refuse to see movies before having read the book.

8.  The Martian

Check the answer in the previous one.

Am Excited For:

9.  Mockingjay Part 2

Does this need explanation?

10.  The 5th Wave

My dad is finally reading this book and, yes, I will be forcing him to bring me to see the movie.


  1. I still need to see Paper Towns and Insurgent too. I really want to go to see The Martian but will probably wait until it's on demand. I really liked Gone Girl - book and movie. Great list!!

    1. This is why I love on demand and the internet--it is so easy to find somewhere to see the movie without going to theaters! Thanks for commenting! :D

  2. Paper Towns is terrible, don't even bother with the movie. I loved the Insurgent movie! They did a fabulous job twisting the plot and making something different.


    1. Oh, no, really?! I wasn't too partial to the book, though, so I guess that isn't a surprise. But maybe I'll finally get around to watching Insurgent, huh? Thanks for commenting, Anna! XD

  3. I actually did, for the most part, like the movie for Wrinkle in Time. It's missing some things, sure, but it's not destroyed the way Percy Jackson was. And I need to see Mockingjay--hopefully I can get my mom and brother to go see it with me when it comes out. Haven't read The 5th Wave yet, but I definitely want to!

    Lovely post, Erin!

    1. NOTHING can be as bad as the abomination that the Percy Jackson movie was. I'm cringing just thinking of it. I am SO excited for Mockingjay and even liked part one better than the book... :O And I hope you read The 5th Wave--it's a solid book! Thanks for commenting, Ellie!

  4. WHAAAAT. A WRINKLE IN TIME IS A MOVIE??????? I haven't read the book yet even if my mom borrowed it for me from the library, but to hear that it's actually a movie? I should've read the book she got for me hahahaha ^_^" Oh well. I haven't watched Insurgent as well. I mean, I see it on TV in the HBO channel thing, but I'm not interested in the book as much as I used to 2 years ago.

    I need to see To Kill, though! The book was amazing <3

    1. I only just found out a few months ago myself! The book is peculiar and wonderful and I hope you can read it at some point. I don't think I will ever watch the movie, but I DO have to get around to Insurgent at some point. I read the series in middle school and loved it, so I won't be happy about the changes! Thanks for commenting, Jillian! XD

  5. The Mockingjay Part 2 is just a few days away! OMG I'm so excited I can't even! LOL :D

    1. I'm so excited, too! I can't believe it's almost over... :O Thanks for commenting!
