Buzzfeed’s Book to Movie List for 2014

Buzzfeed can become a major obsession for me, even more so when the posts are about books!  Thanks to Becky and James for recommending 16 Books to Read Before They Hit Theaters This Year!  I am ambivalent about the movie adaptation of Gone Girl (although I definitely plan to see it).  I had no idea Dark Places (another book by Gillian Flynn) was being released as a movie, as well!  Hopefully that will get me through until Flynn writes a new book.  I hear she is tackling new fiction and youth fiction.  Very exciting stuff! 

Which book to movie adaptation are you looking forward to seeing?

  1. Thanks for sharing that Buzzfeed list. There are some interesting books and movies on there. I hadn’t heard of “Winter’s Tale” by Mark Helprin but that looks very interesting. I hadn’t heard of “The Hundred-Foot Journey” either but I am a fan of Helen Mirren and I enjoy watching films in which she plays a part. The story sounds good too so I think I’ll read the book before I see the movie.

    I read “Wild” (well, most of it) and although I’m not a particular fan of Reese Witherspoon, I’ll probably see the movie out of curiosity. And of course, it will have beautiful scenery.

    Last on the Buzzfeed list is “Serena”. I am impatient to see that because I read the book a few months ago and, despite a few criticisms, it is a gripping and powerful read. I like Ron Rash’s writing and I also think Jennifer Lawrence is a fantastic actress. After watching her play opposite Bradley Cooper in “Silver Linings Playbook” (such a great movie!), I am looking forward to seeing them act together again in “Serena”.

    What other book to movie adaptations am I looking forward to? Well, as a Hunger Games fan, it will be fun to see “Mockingjay” in November. I just wish they weren’t splitting it into two movies.

    • Thanks for commenting! I agree there are many good movies to choose from. I love Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper together, too, so that may be reason enough for me to see “Serena.”

      I completely agree about Mockingjay…why must they break everything into two parts these days?

      • Yes, it’s so frustrating and it’s clearly just a way of making more money. Although at least it’s not being broken into three parts, like The Hobbit. That is simply ridiculous, making three long movies out of a relatively small book!
