Do you read the book first, or watch the movie? I try to read the book first, but sometimes that means I put off watching the movie for a loooong time! Here are ten book-to-movie adaptations I have yet to watch, even though I’ve already read the books and should really just get on with it already! Link up your own list over at The Broke and the Bookish, and leave me your recommendations in the comments!
The Fault in Our Stars, by John Green: The book was good, but I just don’t know if I liked it enough to also watch the movie. I’m just not that in love with love stories.
Gone Girl, by Gillian Flynn: I loved the book and am afraid the movie won’t come close!
The Martian, by Andy Weir: The book had a lot of hardcore science-speak in it, so I’m hoping the movie will be easier to digest.
The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, by Douglas Adams: I just did not click with this book, but everyone else seems to love it, so I’m wondering if I’d enjoy the movie more?
The Book Thief, by Markus Zusak: Another book I adored, so I’ve put off watching the movie.
The Double, by Jose Saramago: This book was good but also really weird, so I’m not sure if I’d enjoy the movie or not.
Stardust, by Neil Gaiman: Not sure there was enough of a story to support a full-length book, much less a movie, but curious to see how Gaiman looks on the big screen!
Never Let Me Go, by Kazuo Ishiguro: I wonder if it’d as hard to follow the flashbacks in the film as it was in the book.
Bridget Jones’ Diary, by Helen Fielding: Laughed out loud at these! And they have
Mr. Darcy Colin Firth in them.
The Road, by Cormac McCarthy: This was not a fun book, so I imagine the movie is not fun either, but it was still a great read and I’d like to see how it plays out on the screen.
