Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!
Each week we will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.
This week's topic is: Top Ten Book To Movie Adaptations I'm Looking Forward To...But Will Be Scared to See!
*in no particular order
**the scared to see bit is because of what will be changed or left out, naturally
1. THE 5TH WAVE--soooo cannot wait for this one!! Have been looking forward to it since I first heard of it last year!!
2. ALLEGIANT PART 1--I actually enjoyed this series in its entirety. Including the much scorned ending. Even though this is a part 1, I am curious to see if the movies will keep it. Actually, I will be very surprised if they do!
3. PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES--never read the book, but the movie poster looked rather good (not the one pictured here)! So I'll be intrigued to see this one!
4. ALICE THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS--I didn't overly enjoy the first movie, but I will be curious to see this one.
5. FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM--Harry Potter-esque movie? You had to ask??
6. ASCENDANT--no movie poster available for this crudely named Allegiant Part 2. *eyeroll*
7. SHATTER ME--though technically, I think this was being made into a TV show. At least that's what I thought I heard. It was earlier this year and already losing the details. But I know Tahereh is suppose to help write/work on it!
WHAT I HOPE MAKES IT TO THE BIG SCREEN:
8. OBSIDIAN--need I say more? Wish they could just get Pepe to play Daemon! LOL! I forever seen him as Daemon!
9. WICKED LOVELY--one that's been in the works for awhile, but since options were renewed this past March, I remain hopeful.
10. TALON--this was optioned BEFORE it was even published!! I am SO hoping Hollywood takes this on!
