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!


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!



  1. That YA Steampunk sounds good! Nice pick, I'll have to give the series a go at some point!

    Here's my TT :)

  2. I have not read Waistcoats and Weaponary yet- I so very much want to though! I am so not into zombies but I do want to see Pride and Predjuice and Zombies (made the hubby watch the trailer). I also want to see the newest Harry Potter World movie and of course Obsidian. Great picks!

    My Teaser

  3. Very intriguing teaser and nice Top Ten! I'm looking forward to these too but must read them first! My Teaser and TTT

  4. I just knew 5th Wave would be made into a movie. It is a book that was made for that.

    Here's my favorite book-to-movie adaptations!

  5. I am SUPER excited for Obsidian!
    I actually prefer when books are made into TV shows because they have to cut less. So I think if Shatter Me is a TV show, that could be good!

  6. I so need to catch up on that series in your teaser! :)

    Powerless Teaser

  7. Love the cover! Sounds like they are starting to connect:)

    Here's my TT -

  8. I totally forgot about Alice Through the Looking Glass! I'm SO super excited for it as well. :) And Shatter Me should be interesting!

  9. I can't believe I forgot about 'Alice Through The Looking Glass' - I've been so excited about that! I didn't know they were adapted 'Shatter Me', that gives me even more reason to get around to reading the series!

  10. I couldn't help but chuckle at your teaser! I have never really been interested in that series, but I am now!

  11. The teaser didn't pull me in. I'm looking forward to several of those screen adaptations.

  12. I'm really looking forward to Allegiant too. I'm really interested to see what they do with that ending. I'm not entirely thrilled at part 2 having an entirely different name though.. no idea what they're doing to the series! Great picks :)

  13. I can see a Shatter TV show working for ABC Family.

    I haven't read Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, but the trailer looks soo badass!

  14. Great list1 I can´t wait to see the 5th wave and Allegiant.

    Thanks for stopping by My Top 10 Tuesday

  15. I will put some of those movies on my To Watch list.Thanks for sharing :)

  16. I agree with you about Allegiant. I'm really curious to see what they do with the ending, especially since the last movie was so different from the book! I honestly wouldn't mind if they changed it...

    Here are my Top Ten!

  17. I have wanted to read Jennifer Armentrout for over a year, so I definitely will add this to my to read list!! Here are my top ten:

  18. I had no idea there would be a second Alice Movie. Awesome list. Here's my Top Ten Tuesday

  19. Nice list!! I realize now that I forgot to add The Book Thief to my list this week too as I still have to read this book or watch the movie adaptation.

    Thank you for stopping by earlier and leaving me a comment!! Happy reading!!

  20. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is going to be an interesting movie lol

  21. I'm eager to read this one. She is clearly "unsettled." Thanks for visiting my blogs. Happy reading!

  22. I haven't decided how I feel about P&P and Zombies yet... I've never read the book and love the classic so I'm trying to decide if it's blasphemous or not LOL!

    I cannot WAIT for 5th wave!

  23. I really enjoyed the one book I read by Carriger. I want to read more of her books. I like the teaser. Sounds like they are getting comfortable with each other. :-)

    I hope they keep the end the same in the the Divergent movies. I really enjoy the movies and am looking forward to Allegiant and Ascending (is that the title? I can't remember).

    I really need to read Wicked Lovely.

  24. OK. I had to look up "steampunk". I love learning new things. It sounds interesting and I'm going to find out more about your teaser book. Here's my link:

  25. Well, that was an unsettling tease. Thanks for sharing.

  26. I had Allegiant Part 1 on my list too (though I have yet to read the book!).
    My TTT:

  27. Fantastic Beasts somehow hadn't been on my radar before this week. It certainly is now!

  28. ALICE THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS looks so good. Each time I see it I want to watch it.

  29. That's quite an interesting teaser. Makes me want some answers to questions that popped up reading it.
