TOP TEN TUESDAY

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature created at The Broke and the Bookish where each week we’re given a new topic to create a top ten list.

Welcome to our  Top Ten Tuesday.
If you missed any of the TTT you can click here.

 

I mentioned in one of my reviews that I was involved in a real life book club.  We were all reading the same books but we all liked such different type of books I made the suggestion that we read what we want and at our meetings we share what we’ve read.  My one friend has decided to read books that have a movie or are getting made into a movie.  This got me thinking of all the books I’ve read or want to read that have movie tie-ins for this year.

BOOKS I’VE READ WITH MOVIE TIE-INS RELEASING IN 2016

 

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

I read the book recently and saw the movie. It released on September 30, 2016. Even though there were some differences between the book and movie I still really enjoyed the movie.

The Girl on the Train

Earlier this month I read this book and I’m looking forward to seeing the movie which came out on October 6, 2016.

Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates 

I saw this movie this past summer.  I had no clue it was a book until recently.  I doubt I’ll read the book but I did find the movie funny.

The BFG

I read this with my kids when they were little and this summer we read the book again for fun, even though all my kids are teenagers.  We still laugh about “getting the shrinks”… which the kids like to joke that G’ma has the shrinks. We haven’t seen the movie but plan to.

Me Before You

As a family, we listened to this book and saw the movie.  It was so good.

Allegiant

My daughter and I read this series.  The third book frustrated us but that didn’t stop us from watching the movies.

A Monster Calls

I read this book 3 years ago and it wrecked me.  It’s a beautiful story.  I’ve seen a couple release dates for this movie (Dec. 23, 2016 / January 6, 2017) I guess it will be a surprise when it releases.

 

This summer I finally watched The Shawshank Redemption.  Wow! That was a great movie. I just found out it was first a Stephen King short story called – “Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption” included in his book called, Different Seasons. Maybe someday I’ll read the book and see what I think.  Even though, I haven’t read the book I’m going to say this is my favorite Stephen King movie/book.

 

Do you enjoy reading the book first and then seeing the movie? Or the other way around?
