A big online apology to Lucy@ Queen Of Contemporary– I said I would write a meme for her as part of her blogoversary, but I was so busy yesterday! So, HERE IT IS, and I hope you all enjoy it!
2013 has been a MASSIVE year for Geeks! In this post, I’m going over the movies I’ve loved/going-to-love that have come from books to box office hits.
So, in chronological order…
Beautiful Creatures: Sadly, I’ve not actually read this book or seen the film yet, but I’m sure both are amazing, judging by the fanbase for them. Have you read/watched it? How did you find it? I’ll probably buy the DVD when it’s released, as a lot of my friends really enjoyed it. It looks really cool, and has witchcraft and everything, so I’m eagerly awaiting it.
Warm Bodies: I’ve read the book, liked the book, fangirled over the book, fangirled over the many movie posters, but NOT SEEN THE MOVIE YET *sniff*. I will soon though, and Nicholas Holt is an awesome actor so I’m sure he did a good job as R!
The Host: A sci-fi story from the author of Twilight. I’ve read some of the Twilight series, and didn’t like it as much as The Host, which I’m currently reading. I also saw the film, which was good, but a bit too romantic. However, it was really enjoyable and I quite liked it, because it has ALIENS!!
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire: Not out until November, but anyone who knows me well enough will know that I can literally talk for hours upon hours over the books and movie franchise, because they are AMAZING. I read the first gore-fest when I was eight. That is what I put the blame on for my love of scary teen books. There is no week I got without fangirling over THG! I lovelovelove it but I’ll shut up now.
Divergent: The movie production began a few weeks ago, if I’m correct, and I’m so glad! I absolutely adored Divergent and Insurgent, and took part in the blog tour and stuff. I can’t get enough of this series, and even though I’m gutted because they’re cutting Uriah out, I’m impatiently waiting on the edge of my seat for this movie!
TiFOS: For those of you who don’t know, this stands for The Fault In Our Stars, John Green’s bestseller. Also, I’m not sure if the movie has been completely confirmed but hopefully it will! On a vlogbrothers video a while ago, John mentioned the casting of Shailene Woodley as Hazel. I’m so glad! She’s playing Tris in Divergent too! If it does make it onto the big screen, I’ll be bringing about seventeen-gazillion boxes of tissues.
In the words of Lucy, Don’t forget to wear your geekery like a badge!
I really liked the Beautiful Creatures book but the movie was a little bit of a disappointment. They changed so much so it wasn’t easy to distinguish whether it was supposed to be like the book or not.
I’m not sure if I’m looking forward to the TFiOS movie or not, mainly because I loved the book so much so that the film will never be as good.
Thank you for participating, Georgia! 😀
Totally agree with the TiFOS point there. And no problem! I was so honoured to 😉
