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:
- 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.
- 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!
- 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?
