Top Three Thursdays #13

Hello and welcome! This is my weekly series, Top Three Thursdays, or, for convenience, TTT. Every week I discuss my top three in any bookish topic. If you’d like to participate, write up a post on your blog and leave a link to it in the comments below.

The topic for today (25/05/17) is: Book to Movie Adaptations of 2017 I’m Excited About

1. Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon

For those of you who don’t know, I follow Booktubers a lot and many of them were invited to a special screening and the red carpet event for this movie. I don’t read much contemporary, but this is one book I really want to read. It’s diverse as it has a biracial female lead, who has a rare disorder which makes her allergic to everything. I must admit that the hype is one of the main reasons I want to read and watch this.

Release date: May 19th

2. The Dark Tower by Stephen King

A popular fantasy series by the revered Stephen King, I’m actually surprised I haven’t already read this one yet. I must confess that I haven’t read a single book by him, which is a little embarrassing because he’s such a well-known writer. He writes across genres, but this is fantasy, so it is right up my alley. Not to mention that some of the big names have been cast, such as Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey. I’m pretty sure I’m going to enjoy the movie and I really want to get to read the books before that.

Release date: August 4th

3. Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie

For those popular with the crime genre, Agatha Christie is an inescapable name. This one follows Poirot, who I prefer over Miss Marple. Being a fan of the acting of Johnny Depp, I hope to catch this in the theatres. It also has other big names like Kenneth Branagh and Michelle Pfeiffer. I have read other books by Christie and enjoyed them all. I’m hoping to finish this in June and well in time for the movie.

Release date: November 22nd

  1. Great idea for a meme! I still want to read The Book Thief so I can watch the movie, I’m a bit behind on that one. There are a couple books I’ve sped-read so I could finish before the movie came out – my fave was Lovely Bones though the book was MUCH better than the movie

    1. Thank you is a little ​inadequate here. 😂 Thanks for stopping by, for following and for your kind comment. 😊
      The Book Thief has been on my TBR since forever. I think I’m hesitant because the book has A LOT of hype and I’m a little apprehensive it won’t live up to it. Also, I’m not in the mood for WW2 fiction right now. Maybe in the coming months? Let me know if you’re planning to read so maybe we can do a buddy read. 🙂
      I haven’t heard of the Lovely Bones at all. *blushes* What is it about?

      1. Oh it’s a pretty dark book. The main character is murdered and then ends up in kind of a halfway-heaven, looking down on her family. It’s kind of a mix of learning how to let go and trying to solve her murder

      2. Ooh, sounds very intriguing! I’m all for mysteries with precious lessons and feels. This sounds like the perfect combo of that. Thanks for introducing me to the book. *goes on GR and adds to TBR immediately* 😂
