Books Being Adapted Into Movies In 2015

There are a lot of books being adapted into movies for the year of 2015. Some of which I find myself rather excited about.

 "The Martian" by Andy Weir. I read this book last year and really enjoyed it. Matt Damon will be playing our lead character, Mark Watney. This movie will be hitting theaters on November 25th.

"Frankenstein" by Mary Shelley. I have also read this book, and loved it. Apparently Daniel Radcliffe will be playing Igor (side-note, Igor was never a character in the book). This movie will be hitting theaters on October 2nd.

"Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children" by Ransom Riggs. I have not yet read this certain book, but it has made it's way onto my TBR list. Tim Burton is directing this one so you know that it will definitely be dark and rather peculiar. A release date unknown.

"Room" by Emma Donoghue. I read this book last year, and although I did not love the book I did find it to be a exciting read. A release date unknown.

"Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" by Seth Grahame-Smith. I did not read this book, possibly never will, but the film may be interesting ... The release date is unknown.

"The Spook's Apprentice" by Joseph Delaney. I read this book as a teenager and rather enjoyed it at the time. The movie however is being dubbed "Seventh Son". This one may already be out ...


  1. I did a display at my library this morning: Read the book, Watch the Movie. It was fun to put together. On the shelves, I paired the movies and books: "Book Thief," "Boy in the Striped Pajamas," "My Sister's Keeper," "Sarah's Key," "Heaven is For Real," "The Giver," and several others...

  2. Sounds like fun, but hopefully people don't just watch the movies and skip the books. :P Too often when I recommend a book to someone do I hear the response "Is it a movie?", yes it's a movie, "Well, I'll just watch the movie then!". Ugh -_- A lot of times the movies don't even do the books justice, never judge a book by it's movie.
