OH GUYS I AM SO READY FOR 2016 ADAPTATIONS! BRING THEM ON! I was already planning a post about 2016 adaptions for December, but looks like TTT stole my thunder (I’ll probably still do one though). 2016 is shaping up to be a big year for adaptions! I feel like if you become a successful YA author these days you are almost guaranteed a movie deal, which is pretty damn cool. And to think our fangirling selves are the reason these books get so big!
Some of the titles on this list are only rumored to be released 2016 but I’m crossing all my fingers!
The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare – January 12th
This series is back for a second try at the screen! In case you missed the horror that was The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones – this series already flopped in it’s debut movie in 2013, but The Power’s That Be have decided to give this series another go on the small screen. The cast looks extremely hot and I’m excited to see how much better the book is going to be as a TV series instead of shoved all in one movie.
The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey – January 14th
I can’t believe I still haven’t read this book! I have every intention to get it read before I see the movie! The trailer to this movie seem INSANE! I love Chloe Grace Moretz and I think she going to be incredible as the face of this new franchise!
Me Before You by Jojo Moyes – March 18th
Okay I AM SO EXCITED!! This is one of my favourite reads from this year!It is literally soul destroying, and absolutely beautiful! Emilia Clark and Sam Claflin are playing the two main characters. KHALEESI + FINNICK!!!!! HELL YEAH! You can read my review of Me Before You here!
Allegiant (Divergent #3) by Veronica Roth – March 18th
I have been avoiding trailers of this like the plague! Again another series I’ve never read, so I have no idea what’s going to happen in the book so I want to go into the movie blind! Who knows I may be inspired to finally read the series before March 18th!
The BFG by Roald Dahl – July 1st
WHO DIDN’T READ THIS WHEN THEY WERE A KID!!! The original 1989 movie is a lot of fun, but I’m excited to see the reboot!
A Monster Call by Patrick Ness – October 14th
This list is just kind of turning into books I’ve never read that are becoming movies! Again another book I plan to read before I see the movie! I’ve STILL never read a Patrick Ness book! I have two of his books on my shelf, I just need to get to them already!! Liam Neeson’s playing the monster – it’s going to be incredible!
Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them by J.K. Rowling – November 18th
I’m just going to say something and then you can all judge me (it’s okay I judged me) I didn’t even know this book existed until I read about the movie! There. I said it. Now you may through rocks at the rock I’ve been living under! I MUST READ THIS BOOK NOW!
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs – December 25th
Another book I still haven’t read but have every intention to! Its okay I still have over a year to read it! Eva Green gets a million ticks as playing Miss Peregrine, she plays amazing creepy characters!
No Confirmed Release Date
Fallen by Lauren Kate
Now I think I speak for a lot of us when I say I read Fallen in my ‘Twilight’ years, because of this I have to say I’m a tad skeptic about whether or not this book will make a great adaptions. It doesn’t really fit with the current dystopia / high fantasy adaptions and is more along the lines of… well… Twilight. I’m not really familiar with any of the actors/actress but I’m definitely planning on checking this out once it’s released.
Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
Maybe this is the most wishful thinking I’ve ever wished but I heard that this may be a fall 2016 release! On one hand I’m like no way, but on the other hand I’m like crossing everything!
