Book to Movie News: The Year of YA

It's been a while since we have had a Book to Movie round up and GOOD GOLLY are we in for it! There are so many book to movie adaptations that have (and will) come out for 2013! And SO many are from the YA genre!!! 

Lets recap the ones released so far:

World War Z was SO FREAKING CREEPY! The BEST ZOMBIE film to date! #therunnersfreakedmeout #ihatezombiesilovezombies

The Great Gatsby I loved it and it was true to the book. #youhadmeatleo #alwayshateddaisy

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones I really had my doubts going into this one. I did not like the cast and I thought there was no way to capture the vivid world Clare created in the books. I was especially bugged at who was cast to play Jace because I had my heart set on Alex Pettyfer! BUT I have to say BRAVO to Jaime Campbell Bower! I really liked the chemistry between him and Lily Collins, they won me over. He really brought out the cockyness and vulnerability of the "book Jace" that I grew to love! #simonwaswaycuterinthemoviethanihadimagined #stillLOVEthatwarlock #magnus

The Host BOMB!!! I thought it was absolutely horrible... from the casting to the acting. I even lost a few friends over my rude remarks after watching it. If you didn't read the book I have no idea how you could have understood what was going on. If you did read the book you wanted your money back about 30 minutes into it. #nohashtagcouldsumupmydistaste

Les Miserables I don't feel qualified to judge this movie. I have'nt seen the broadway production and fear that if I were to say anything negative about this movie I might be attacked by thesbians! #musicalsarentmything

Life of Pi I haven't read the book or watched the movie. Thoughts?

Beautiful Creatures I went into this one knowing that Kelli hated the books and that it wasn't a 5 star read but that it had potential to be a good book adaptation. I really enjoyed it. I'm sure I would have understood characters better had I read the book but at face value, I liked it! #southernaccentsarethebomb 

November is going to be a GREAT movie month! I am excited to see every single one of these releases! The Hunger Games:Catching Fire, Ender's Game, The Book Thief & Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters


And 2014 ain't lookin' so bad!

Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters... #DIMITRI If this movie isn't epic I might have a break down! So far I have liked the casting #dimitriisrighton

The Fault in Our Stars will be a tear jerker for sure #chickflick

Divergent I still don't know how I feel about Shailene Woodley. I hope that I can look at her as Beatrice and NOT think of Amy and Ricky from The Secret Life of the American Teenager #yesivewatchedthemall #noimnotproud

What Book to Movie Adaptations are you excited for?!

  1. It has been a pretty good year. I haven't tried The Host yet. I'm afraid to actually. I LOVED the book.
