Top Ten Book To Movie Adaptations I'm Looking Forward To or I Still Need To Watch

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week's topic is "Top Ten Book To Movie Adaptations I'm Looking Forward To or Ten Book To Movie Adaptations I Still Need To Watch". I decided to do both!

Top Four Book To Movie Adaptations I Still Need To Watch:

1) Me and Earl and the Dying Girl

2) The Hunger Games - Mockingjay Part 1

3) Insurgent

4) The Scorch Trials

Top Six Book To Movie Adaptations I'm Looking Forward To:

1) Me Before You

I'm probably most looking forward to this one! I read the book years ago but the story still grips me. Also, an amazing cast!

2) Black (directed by Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah)

This is a Belgian movie adapted from a Belgian book Black written by Dirk Bracke. I read the book when it came out and I absolutely loved it! Can't wait to see the movie! The movie is in French and if you get to chance to see it, I don't think you will regret it!

3) Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

4) Deadpool

5) Suicide Squad

6) Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

Top Ten Tuesday: 10 debut authors whose sophomore novels we're looking forward to

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week's topic is 10 debut authors whose sophomore novels we're looking forward to or Top Ten Sophomore Novels That We Loved Just As Much If Not More Than The Author's Debut. I decided to do both because I couldn't come up with ten books in one category. 

7 debut authors whose sophomore novels I'm looking forward to: 

1. Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge

I really liked Cruel Beauty! I'm waiting for Crimson Bound to come out in paperback but I'm considering buying it in hardback after all! Read my review of Cruel Beauty here!

2. The Duff by Kody Keplinger

I really liked this book, it is one of the best books I read last year! Read my review here!

3. The Martian by Andy Weir

This is easily one of my favourite books this year! You can find my review here!

4. The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch

I really liked this fantasy novel, I own the second book but I haven't found the time to read it yet. You can find my review of The Lies of Locke Lamora here!

5. A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness
6. Carrie by Stephen King

You can find my review here.

7. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

3 Sophomore Novels That Were Better Than The Author's Debut 

1. Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

All the books in this series just get better and better! Winter is also my most anticipated book of the year, and I can't believe I don't have to wait much longer till it's released! Read my series review here.

2. Through the Ever Night by Veronica Rossi

The first book in this trilogy was okay, not great but okay. The second book was way better and the third book was the best! Read my review of the trilogy here!

3. Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi

Shatter Me didn't impress me much, I only continued the trilogy because I owned all the books already. I did like the other books way more, so that's why I decided to put Unravel Me on this list. Find my series review here!

November TBR

This is a very ambitious November TBR, I'm hoping to read at least half of them, so without further ado, I will reveal my November TBR.

1. Assassin's Apprentice by Robin Hobb
2. Four by Veronica Roth

First of all, I started reading Assassin's Apprentice in the beginning of October, however, with all the books I was required to read for university, I wasn't able to finish it. I hope to finish this one early on in November, though.

Four by Veronica Roth is a loan from a friend, so I need to read it so I can return it. I was also hoping to read it in October but the universe had other plans for me.

I did get till page 282 in Assassin's Apprentice, so it shouldn't take me too long to finish it.

3. Cockroach by Rawi Hage
4. Fall on Your Knees by Ann-Marie MacDonald

The next two, I'm also required to read for my Canadian Literature class, so far I've already started Cockroach (I'm currently at page 114), and I need to finish it before the fifth of November, so that won't be a problem.

Fall on Your Knees, is a very long book and I don't really know what it is about, so I'm hoping I will like it because otherwise it will undoubtedly cause another reading slump. I need to finish this one before the 26th of November, and I will finish it!

5. Winter by Marissa Meyer

I've pre-ordered Winter, so I hope I will find myself reading this one quite soon! So excited! But also sad that this will be the last book in the series...

6. Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo 
7. The Sin Eater's Daughter by Melinda Salisbury

I actually really wanted to start reading Shadow and Bone when it arrived in the mail, however, I thought I should finish the books I was reading at the time first. I can't decide if I should start this before or after reading Winter. We'll see!

The Sin Eater's Daughter is also a loan from (the same) friend, and just like Carrie, she hasn't read this one yet. I need to finish her books before the end of the year, not because she really wants them back but because I feel that I shouldn't take months to read three of her books. We don't see each other regularly but we do need to return each other's books sometime.

8. Moon Called by Patricia Briggs

This one is definitely wishful thinking, however, I've been wanting to pick this one up for a while, so it might happen. I like having a lot of choices, so that's why I included this one in my November TBR.

I'm hoping to read the first five books on this list, all the rest will be a bonus!
