Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Book-based Movies We’re Looking Forward To

November 10, 2015 Uncategorized 12


Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday! This weekly shared “meme” has a different theme each week and is shared by many blogs. We’re aiming to come up with ten things between us each week so they won’t be in any particular order!

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted at The Broke and the Bookish. For a list of past and future Top Ten Tuesday topics and to find out more about Top Ten Tuesday, click here!

This week we’ve been asked for Ten Book To Movie Adaptations We’re Looking Forward To.

By the way, Philippa and I chatted about some YA books recently optioned and in production in Tea in the Treetops Podcast Episode 33. Check it out 🙂

Ten Book-based Movies We’re Looking Forward To


1. Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them (Nov 2016)

We don’t really have much idea what this movie is about just yet, but who cares? It’s another Harry’s Wizarding World movie and we cannot wait!


2. Catching Fire (& Mockingjay parts 1 and 2) (2013, 2014, Nov 20 2015)

Yes, I’m behind – I still haven’t watched Catching Fire, even after I really enjoyed the adaptation of The Hunger Games. I’ll get to it, although I think the Mockingjay movies are going to break me!

3. Big Little Lies (2016)

We all enjoyed Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty during last year, especially since our little ones are all about to start school, just like the families in this story. It should make a great film.


4. The BFG (July 2016)


Everyone’s favourite story of the Big Friendly Giant. It’s not just for kids, right?!



Daughter of Smoke and Bone

5. Daughter of Smoke and Bone

It’s still in the “optioned” phase at the moment so who knows when we will get to see it, but this could be a really epic fantasy film. I hope they can put it together well!


6. The 5th Wave (Jan 2016)

I am torn between wanting to see this film and thinking it will be the scariest disaster movie I’ve seen in a while… the book was scary enough!

7. Insurgent (2015), Allegiant (March 2016) and Ascendant (2017)

Yes, I’m behind again. At least I actually have a copy of Insurgent now thanks to the #BTCYA event last week! The third book is to be split into two films, with the fourth being named Ascendant. Will they change that ending, though?


8. Beauty and the Beast (2017)

This live-action Disney remake starring Emma Watson just ticks all the damn boxes. Give.

9. We Were Liars

We just read this book in our book club! This one is also “in development”.


10. Room (2015)

“After 5-year-old Jack and his mother escape from the enclosed surroundings that Jack has known his entire life, the boy makes a thrilling discovery: the outside world.”




Anni lives in Brisbane, Australia with her young family. She loves everything fantasy and science fiction and believes sleep is really very underrated.

    We Were Liars is going to be a movie? Oh, I am soooo intrigued. I loved that book and would love to see it on the screen.

    I have watched Catching Fire, but I haven’t watched the first part of Mockingjay. I think I’m scared because like you said, they will break me.

    Great movies on your list! There are quite a few on here that I want to watch myself. I NEED MOCKINGJAY PART 2 TO COME OUT ALREADY!!! I am beyond excited for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and I really hope I end up loving it. Here’s my TTT.

    The BFG is on my list too – I just adored Roald Dahl when I was a child, and I’m very curious to see how they adapt the BFG to film. I’m also intrigued by the live-action Beauty and the Beast – I’m a child of the ’90s, so the animated version was one of my favourites growing up. Emma Watson as Belle sounds like inspired casting, so I’m very hopeful! 🙂
