Challenge: Book to Movie 2016

Book to Movie Challenge 2016

Hello my fellow bookworms, if you read this blog regularly you will know I love my adaptations and so it is really a no-brainer that I should take part in The Book to Movie Challenge in 2016 – created and hosted by ebookclassics. The guidelines are:

  • You can join at any time.
  • Neither the book nor the movie has to be new in 2016.
  • TV shows and mini-series count.
  • Comic book and graphic novel adaptations count.
  • Active participation in the challenge is required to qualify for prizes.

I do monthly adaptation posts on the film, TV and theatre adaptations I have watched already; so I feel confident this ‘challenge’ will be a simple and fun event for me to take part in. To sign-up all you need to do is post an introduction post where you name 3 adaptations you are looking forward to. Here are the 2016 adaptations I am looking forward too:

  1. Inferno (2016) – I read Inferno by Dan Brown this year and loved it! I am looking forward to seeing the adventures of Professor Robert Langdon continue on the screen and I think Tom Hanks makes a great Langdon. I am particularly looking forward to the settings and history of Florence, Venice and Istanbul.
  2. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016) – I read Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by J K Rowling years ago! It is only a small accompaniment book to Rowling’s epic Harry Potter series, but I am just so excited about another story from this wonderful, magical world – plus they’ve cast Eddie Redmayne which I love!
  3. Allegiant (2016) – I have literally just finished reading Allegiant, the final instalment in Veronica Roth’s dystopian, young adult series; and what an ending! I can’t wait to see how it translates to the big screen. Shailene Woodley and Theo James will be reprising their roles, and Jeff Daniels will be joining them as a new character too.

I am really looking forward to taking part in this challenge and seeing what great adaptations I will watch next year.

What adaptations are you looking forward to seeing in 2016?

  1. This truly is the perfect challenge for you, so thank you for joining me! I’m so excited about Fantastic Beasts and Allegiant, but I had no idea Inferno was being made into a movie. I’m listening to The Lost Symbol audio book right now.

    1. You’re very welcome – thank you for hosting the perfect challenge for me 🙂 Inferno is already made! It was due to release last year but they didn’t want it to clash with Spectre or Star Wars: The Force Awakens so they postponed it to 2016…I’ve been waiting a long time!

  2. I want to see both Brooklyn and Carol – I’ve read the first book, but not the second. I’ve been enjoying reading some of the books of favourite classic films recently – Psycho, The Maltese Falcon etc. I shall think about the challenge… it sounds quite fun! Hope you enjoy it! 🙂

    1. Thank you 🙂 I have seen trailers for both Brooklyn and Carol – they both have such a beautiful, vintage look. I didn’t realise they were adaptations though. Whether you take part in this or not I hope you enjoy the adaptations you watch next year 🙂
