Top Ten Tuesday: Book Adaptations I Want to Watch (after I read the book of course)

Is it just me or is literally every book optioned for or in the works of an adaptation? I'm not really all that excited about a lot of them, but here's a mix of adaptions that are already out and that are coming out that I would like to see.

Ideally, I would love to read the books of all of these first. I have already read a few, but most of them I have not read yet. It's a running joke in my family that I'm impossible to watch a movie with because on family movie nights I'm also saying no to the suggestions because, "I want to read the book first." But hey, the book is always better! 

 
1. North and South BBC Mini-Series 2004--Trailer
I have heard so many good thing about this mini-series, plus everything the BBC puts out is pure gold.

2. Sense and Sensibility 1995-- Trailer
I just finished the book, and was so excited to finally watch this, only to discover that Netflix had taken it off! Now I need to hunt it down.

3. Mockingjay Part Two 2015-- Trailer 
duh!

 

4. The Danish Girl 2015-- Trailer
I really love Eddie Redmayne, his freckles are too cute. I don't know a lot about this story, but both the book and the movie intrigue me.

5. Far From the Madding Crowd 2015-- Trailer
I have to read the book first (story of my life) but I'm really looking forward to this adaptation of Hardy's novel.

6. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 2016 
Again, duh!

 

7. Rosemary's Baby 1968--Trailer
I really should have watched this one last month, but oh well! I will get to it sooner or later (probably later.)

8. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies 2016--Trailer 
I don't know guys, this one looks kinda entertaining!

9. Call the Midwife 2012-- Trailer
This has been on my list forever! I'm really hoping to start it soon.

10. The English Patient 1996-- Trailer
Everyone loves this film, but I have to be in the right mood to enjoy dramatic and tragic love stories, so when that mood hits, this will be the first movie I watch!

Here's some adaptions that I recommend

  3. You have a lot of older adaptations on your list. A lot of Austin. The only Austin adaptation Ive seen is the 2005 Pride and Prejudice. I watch that movie a lot, much to the annoyance of The Husband lol

  6. Great list, Mallory! Mockingjay and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies both made my list this week, too. :) I highly recommend North and South - Richard Armitage is the perfect John Thornton - and I really enjoyed the 2015 adaptation of Far From the Madding Crowd. I can't believe I forgot about Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them! I really want to see The Danish Girl, too.

  9. I can't wait to see Mockingjay! So many things are going to happen in that second movie, and I really wonder how some of that will be dealt with on screen!
