Happy Movie Year!

It is officially 2013! I am stoked about this year and the books hitting theaters! Here are a few I'm really looking forward to; I know there are probably more but these caught my eye.

Just note that most information was found on IMDB's website and could change.
Titles are organized by release date.

Warm Bodies February 1, 2013

A zombie love story based on the book Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion. I am really looking forward to this one, even not having read the book yet!

Beautiful Creatures February 13, 2013

I am a huge fan of Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl's Gatlin County! The Caster Chronicles is one of my favorite series and I'm very anxious to see it come to life. I'm not especially crazy about the leading actors but Emmy Rossum is playing Ridley, and I'm excited about that.

The Host March 29, 2013

Ok. So, Stephanie Meyer is not my favorite author but I do like her books, as long as I just enjoy them for what they are. I enjoyed The Host, but only about the last 25%. It was soooo hard to get into and took me months to finally finish. Normally I'd stay away from the movie for that fact but, the movie trailer makes this one look pretty good. I will be giving it a try. 

The Great Gatsby May 10, 2013

I am a HUGE Baz Luhrmann fan and with a cast of Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, and Isla Fisher this film based on the book by F. Scott Fitzgerald looks great.

Continue reading for information on more films!

World War Z June 21, 2013

World War Z by Max Brooks is another book I own and have yet to check out. I like Brad Pitt and think this one looks pretty freaking awesome.

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones August 23, 2013

First of all Jamie Campbell Bower is growing on me for Jace, still not 100% on board but getting there. Johnathan Rhys Meyers as Valentine? That I LIKE! Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instruments series is fantastic and one I definitely recommend reading, especially before the film comes out. Cannot wait for the Shadowhunters on the big screen!

Ender's Game November 1, 2013
Couldn't find a movie poster
But, here's the book cover.

I own this book, in more than one format, and have yet to read it. Why haven't I read it? Orson Scott Card's Ender's Game is one of the top books to film I am looking forward to for this year! HOPEFULLY, I'll get to the book before then...

Catching Fire November 22, 2013

This one is pretty much a no brainer. I love Suzanne Collins and just wanna squeeze her! The Hunger Games trilogy is EPIC.

There are so many more that are rumored to be out this year or next, and many more in planning stages.

A few of the rumors I've heard are for: Divergent by Veronica Roth, The Fault in Our Stars by John Green, The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan, Fallen by Lauren Kate and many more. 


  1. I am VERY excited for City of Bones, and I'm definitely going to see The Host (which I didn't really like) and Beautiful Creatures (after I've finally read the book) and Catching Fire (though I definitely prefer the books). And Divergent is being made into a movie as well and I can't wait! SO many books are being made into movies! :) Happy New Year!!

  2. I'm so excited about those movies coming out. Mostly about Catching Fire and The Host. I still have to read the book but the trailer seems incredible! Such great book to movie adaption this year! : )


    Wow, seeing so many laid out like this just makes me realize how much my local movie theatre will be making off me haha. I'm especially excited for The Host (which, okay, I really did like), TMI (!!!!! it's almost here!!!!) and ENDER'S GAME <3 <3 <3 AND Catching Fire. OBVIOUSLY. Okay, so that's not really a narrowed down list... but whatever ;) Great post, Carole! <3
