Popsugar came out with a list of 28 books that are coming to the screen in 2016. I’ve actually read these six (The Light Between Oceans is in my library queue) and look forward to seeing what the movie moguls make of them.
I’m restless. My mind is preoccupied at the moment. Sitting down with a book is painfully absent right now. I’m watching a lot of The Worst Cooks in America on Netflix. I’m playing too much Panda Pop. Carpool Karaoke clips on You Tube are all consuming. And Downton Abbey started again. So vegging in front of the tube (any tube) is working for me right now.
A favorite of mine as a kid. A favorite of my kids. Scarlett Johannson as Kaa, Idris Elba as Shere Khan, Bill Murray as Baloo, Christopher Walken as King Louie, Ben Kingsley as Bagheera and Lupita Nyong’o as Rashka…can’t wait for April.
I don’t know much about the actors and skipped the sequel last year but despite all the feels this book put me through, I’m willing to see it.
This book crossed my path as a young teacher and reading this with my students was a highlight. They ate it up and I still remember how much I enjoyed it. A Roald Dahl rekindled obsession followed shortly after.
I didn’t love this book as much as others but curious to see how it plays out on the screen. I think Emily Blunt is the perfect Rachel Watson.
A trilogy of a 60-120 page book (depending on the edition) makes me verrry curious but it’s Harry Potter and Rowling is writing the screenplay so I feel better now.
It was a book group pick I missed and for some reason can’t get my hands on a copy from the library. I’ll be honest, I have a slight crush on Michael Fassbender, so that’s how it made this list.
What books are you wanting to see come to life on the big screen this year?
