[Coffee Shop Talks] 2016 Book to Movie Adaptations

This is my very late edition of Coffee Shop Talks. While the plan is to post on Mondays, I occasionally suffer from migraines and this last one had me out for 2 days. But now I'm here, all is well, and I want to share the 2 book-to-movie adaptations that I'm most looking forward to this year.

I must admit that I wasn't crazy about Me Before You. I thought it was good, but not great. I wouldn't have thought that I would ever be interested in seeing a movie adaptation, but the casting for this film definitely changed my mind. I do plan on seeing it and it may even become one of those rare occasions where I love the movie more than the book.

I listened to the audio version of A Monster Calls a few years ago after seeing some great reviews from my friends on GoodReads. I was excited when I discovered that the movie would be releasing this fall. The trailer looks great and I think the special effects will be amazing.

I haven't read the books for those two so I hope they're good adaptations. I'm most excited for Miss Peregrine's though. The trailer looks good & Tim Burten is behind it so I'm sure he'll capture all the awesome weirdness of the novel

Sorry to hear about your migraines. I'm not sure that I plan to see either of these movies or read either of the books. The movies I'm most excited for this year are the Marvel movies, but that is pretty standard for me.

I really enjoyed Me Before You, more than I thought I was going to. I also read After You recently, the sequel. Enjoyable but not as good (for me at least). I am interested in seeing the movie but I feel like it's going to break my heart. And I still need to reach A Monster Calls! I have had it for years and haven't gotten around to it. Maybe I can sneak it in before the movie comes out.
