Theme: Top Ten Book To Movie Adaptations I'm Looking Forward To or Ten Book To Movie Adaptations I Still Need To Watch
I guess that you could call me a grandma. I go to bed early, walk slowly, and I don't watch very many movies/television shows. I watch some, but I'm more of a reader. My television watching day usually consists of watching one or two episodes of something. That is really it. So I thought that I would share with you guys some of the adaptations that I still need to watch. I am also including television shows because I don't want them to feel left out. Make sure that you list your TTT lists in the comments!
1.) Insurgent- I watched Divergent, and I really enjoyed it! Then I got this one from Redbox when they got it, watched ten minuets of it, then stopped it and read a book. I didn't remember enough of the book, and I wasn't enjoying the acting. So, I still have yet to watch all of it.
2.) The Martian- My mom had a rule when I was growing up; you have to read the book before you see the movie. I still follow this rule today. Because I still need to read the book, I have not seen the movie. I want to see the move though.
3.) The Vampire Diaries- I have heard that the books are not good, but I have heard that the television show is really good. I just have never been interested in the premise. I don't want to spend my time watching a love triangle that I have no interest in.
4.) Pretty Little Liars- Again, I don't want to spend time watching something that doesn't sound interesting. I think that this book series and television show is not for me.
5.) Life of Pi- The book and movie do not sound fun to me; they sound stressful, and I don't like to be stressed. So, I'm going to pass on this one.
6.) Pride and Prejudice- There have been so many Pride and Prejudice movies that I am surprised I have not seen at least one. I have no explanation for not seeing the movie, I just have not seen it.
7.) A Game of Thrones- So many people watch the television series, but I just have no interest in it. Maybe it is because I am a rebel and I don't want to be like everybody else, I don't know. When the series is over I might just marathon the whole thing. That would be fun.
8.) The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe- I have read the first book in the series, but I want to finish the whole series before I see the movies. I want to make sure that I don't get spoiled, and I think that I will if I see the movies before finishing the series.
9.) Jurassic Park- I don't like to be scarred. I just don't. I have not seen Jurassic Park or Jurassic World. I don't plan on watching them. I might read the book, but I will not see the movies. Have you guys seen the movies?
10.) The Lord of the Rings- Hate me all you want. I DNF The Hobbit, and I have no interest in watching or reading this series. I might be persuaded into watching the movies, but not the book series. Sorry, not interested.
