I'm most excited for Paper Towns and Mockingjay Part 2.
I need to read Dead Stars, Night Circus, Me Before You, and Room.
Have you or will you read any of these before seeing the movie?

I'll probably see Dark Places and Serena (neither in the theater I'm sure).

Kelly @ turned UP to ELEVEN! said...

I am looking forward to DUFF - I will most likely wait for it to hit Amazon, but I want to see it.

And Pride and Prejudice and Zombies too.

I will most likely not read either book... because I'm lazy and always get annoyed when the movie doesn't live up to the book (coughAbtheVampirehunterI'mLookingatYouCough).

I have no desire for 50 Shades or anything that Nicholas Sparks touches :) because I'm a very cold hearted woman ;) hehe

As much as I love movies, and books, I wonder why we have to put awesome books into movies. :( Not that I mind...but I feel it makes a lot of people lazy and they just wait until the movie comes out instead of taking in a great book, you know, reading something rather than doing nothing productive or entertainingly challenging or so. Oh well. Can't wait for some of these movies, just because I never got into The Divergent Series {I don't like books like that, but movies?! yes please}.

I've ready Fifty Shades, Insurgent, Me Before You, Mockingjay, and Dark Places. I have Room downloaded. I read The Maze Runner, but haven't read The Scorch Trials yet. I have it downloaded too.

I will see Fifty Shades just because. I expect it to be horrible. I liked Divergent the movie more than Divergent the book. I didn't care for Insurgent at all. Me Before You is really good. It's uplifting and depressing all at the same time. Obviously, I'm most excited for Mockingjay. I'll probably eventually see The Maze Runner movie, but it looked a little too teen for me. I really enjoyed the book though.

I've read*

I didn't like Room. I thought it was one of the most overrated books ever.

I didn't know they're doing an English version of The Secrets in their Eyes. The Argentinean movie is really good.

Jana @ Jana Says said...

I will see (because I've read them): Dark Places, Still Alice, Mockingjay, Me Before You, The DUFF, Paper Towns, and Serena. And Reconstructing Amelia and Why We Broke Up. There might be one or two others, and I will most likely only see Dark Places and Mockingjay in the theater. Redbox all the way for this cheap lady!

I REFUSE to see 50 Shades. I hated the books and I want the whole thing to go away.

I haven't read any of these... don't know if I will. It seems that every time I read a book and love it the movie version dissapoints.
