Most anticipated books-to-movies!

I've never been much of a movie fan. I know about movies, names of famous movies and I have watched some, but I'm not very proactive with them. Except when it comes to movies that are based on books. I love them. I know how they deviate from the original texts sometimes, shortening them, modifying them, glorifying them. But I still like those movies a lot, maybe because for me, they simply add more to the stories I've only read so far. There seem to be quite a few movies coming up, all based on Young Adult novels we've read and loved and the excitement is palpable! Watching those trailers makes me hyperventilate, drool and wish for nothing more than sitting in a theater, watching those movies!

1. Catching Fire (The Hunger Games series, Book #2)
I loved The Hunger Games and Catching Fire is the year-end movie I'm quite looking forward to. It's been released earlier this week but it'll be here in India on 6th December. 


2. Divergent 
This movie based on the super-exciting Divergent trilogy's first book, features super hot Theo James as Tobais Eaton and Shailene Woodley as Tris Prior. It's releasing in March, 2014. I watched the trailer yesterday and I think I died, went to heaven, holidayed there and then came back! Just look at it! <3


3. Vampire Academy
I watched the latest trailer this morning and went berserk. Although I think it's been more glorified than how it was, I am looking forward to Rose Hathaway! It's going to be released in February, 2014.



4. The Book Thief!
I am yet to pick up this book from the shelf, but I'm anyway dying to watch the movie. I was, actually, and then I'd forgotten about it and only remembered when I sat down to write this post. Turns out its release date was November 8, 2013. Anyone watched it yet? It's going to be released in India in January, 2014. I'm looking forward to watch this movie the most! Man, I know 2014 is going to be an amazing year. :D



5. I, Frankenstein
Based on the classic Frankenstein, this movie trailer is making me want to go and start reading the book right now! 


Now you know why I like such movies more? ;) Are you excited for any of these? :D

  4. Hi Ashna! :)

    Wonderful post! There are some movies in your list I can't watch either. :) Catching Fire is amazing! <3 I LOVE LOVE LOVE it. :) Have you watched it by this time, Ashna? If not, I'm sure you're going to be blown away, just like me! ;)

    Divergent and VA, yay! <3 I haven't read The Book Thief but I'll make sure to catch up! I like the classic Frankenstein, so I hope they're going to stay true to the book! :)

    Thank you for sharing! :)

    1. Hey Hilda!

      Catching Fire hasn't been released here yet! Waiting for it! I haven't read The Book Thief either, but I really really want to. As for Frankenstein, I came to know it's not really based on the book's story, but I dunno. Haven't read that either!

      I hope you enjoy all of these! ^_^ Thanks for your comment. :)
