The number of literary to big screen adaptations seems to grow each year. As controversial as book to movie adaptations can be for literary fans, with the right studio, a well-written book can come alive and turn into a great film. Check out my recommendations for the best literary to big screen adaptations of this year, cozy up with a good book, and look forward to its film.
The Girl on the Train, Paula Hawkins
The Girl on the Train is on track to be the best psychological thriller of the year, both in book and movie form.
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith
An undead twist on a classic, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies continues the story of Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy with—if it wasn’t obvious already—zombies!
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, Ransom Riggs
One of the most anticipated films of the year is also one of the last to come out. Miss Peregrine is scheduled for release on Christmas day. If you’re into creepy, edge-of-your-seat stories, this is the one for you.
Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates, Mike and Dave Stangle
Not all literary adaptations have to be masterpieces! Mike and Dave is a fun, lighthearted story and worth your time if you’re in need of a laugh.
