Books Coming to a Theatre Near You

27 Apr

I’ve just started watching Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale” and, as a lover of the book by Margaret Atwood, I’m pleased so far with the adaptation.

Sure there are some changes made to it, but they totally work so far. (I’ve only watched the first episode so far, but hope to get back to it tonight.)

Which made me think…

What other books are going to make it to the big (or small) screen soon?

Consider some of these books-to-movies coming out in 2017.

The Zookeeper’s Wife by Diane Ackerman

The Circle by Dave Eggars

Wonder by R.J. Palacio (one of my VERY favorite books in the last couple of years; it’s really for middle school readers, but don’t let that stop you from reading; it’s a powerful book about compassion)

Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon

The Dark Tower by Stephen King (this is a massive series; can’t wait to see what they do with it)

It by Stephen King (I’m still recovering from the adaptation in the early 90s)

The Mountain Between Us by Charles Martin

The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah

The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls (one of the best memoirs I’ve ever read)

Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver

Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie (yes, please!)

Live by Night by Dennis Lehane

The Dinner by Herman Koch

(Here’s a good list from Buzzfeed, with descriptions.)

Are you looking forward to any of these in particular? Do you have a special fondness for any of these books? And how do you feeling, in general, about books being made into movies?
