Book-to-Movie Adaptations I’m Excited For

2019 is making itself known in one of the greatest ways possible–adaptions. Now I am a lover and a hater of book to film adaptations, because more often than not the book is always better. However, there have always been a select few that have surpassed the bar of their originator and brought more depth and emotion through the lens rather than through the words.

With a little over 50 different adaptions announced for both TV and Film, I am super stocked for what 2019 has to offer the bookish community and the fans of these beloved books.

As usual, grab some popcorn, get a notepad out, and a take a look at a few of the book to film adaptations that I am stupid excited to see!

  1. omg yes these all look so good! I’m probably most excited for The Sun Is Also a Star because the promo material is gorgeous so far, and I love a good YA romantic movie – it’s also probably been long enough since I read the book that I won’t be constantly comparing them 😜

  2. The Hate U Give is the first one that springs to mind, it’s just about to be released in Australia and looking forward to seeing it soon. Artemis Fowl is supposed to be releasing this year as well, the early trailer’s look amazing! Thank goodness too, it could have ended up a mess like Percy Jackson. I’m still dirty what they did to the franchise and hopefully one day they’ll remake the films.
