Which of these movies are you most pumped about?

My top four most anticipated:
#1 Tomorrow When the War began (SQUEEE!!!)
#2 The Hunger Games
#3 If I Stay
#4 The Book Thief

And, while not a huge fan of the books, I think Wings and Wicked Lovely will make stunning movies.

I just had to  make this poster large size because of it's general awesomeness.
Sorry if it overwhelms you, haha :)


  1. Cool. I'm really excited to see some of these movies. Thanks for the update.

  2. OMG soooo excited about Tomorrow When The War Began!!! Size of the poster rocks :)

    I had no idea that If I Stay, Hunger Games, Shiver and Beautiful Creatures were being made into movies! *major squealing all-round*

  3. *SQUEE*

    Mu Top 5:
    Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
    The Hunger Games
    Wicked Lovely
    If I Stay
    Wings (though I'm not a fan of Miley Cyrus and I just can't picture her as Laurel!)

  4. yay for major squealing :)

    I don't mind Miley Cyrus :) Although she's laying both Janey (Wake) and Laurel (Wings) who are such vastly different characters. will be good to see how well she portrays them. I think she's more suited to Laurel...

  5. hehe i cant wait for all of them its about time we got some movie love

    My Blog

  6. I'm so, so excited for TWTWB! The trailers have been awesome and it looks like they have really captured the mood of the books. Also looking forward to Deathly Hallows too

    I think some of these books will work really well on screen (If I Stay, Wicked Lovely) and am always interested in seeing how a book translates into a movie

  7. You so make me wish I was into YA!

  8. Great post! Thanks for dropping by my blog, I am new here, looks great. Think I will stick around. Happy Reading.

  9. I squealed when I saw Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows PT 1 I'm so flipping excited!!!

  10. 1. Harry Potter
    2. Hunger Games
    3. The Book Thief.

    I like some of the others too, but I'd probably wait to just get them on DVD. These ones I'd go to the theater for!!

  11. Miley has Wake and Wings? that seems a bit overdone...since both are based on paranormal YA novels. Oh well...never read Wings, but I still think she's a bit odd to play Janie in Wake. I'm excited for the film though and Miley is a good actress, in my opinion.

    But I'm sooo stoked for Harry Potter and If I Stay.


  12. Tomorrow When the War Began reminds me of the movie Red Dawn with Patrick Swayze. very similar premise. I am very excited about The Hunger Games Movie and the new Harry Potter trailer looks like this will be a lot better than the last one. Great post. Thanks

  13. Thanks for this post! I had no idea Fallen and Beautiful Creatures had films in development!

  14. They are making a movie of Shiver???? *squeals* please don't let them cat Miely Cyrus as Grace I shall cry.

    I cant wait for the new Harry P and if they do it right the Hunger Games should be amazing and tense!!

  15. Miley Cyrus???? NOOOOOOOOOO......Well I'll have to survive it *sigh* Do you think she actually reads? Hmmm...interesting thought. Big fan of the blog, keep up the epicness :) btw LOVED The sky always hears me and the hills don't mind

  16. Grr I hate Lincoln Lewis! Ok, well maybe not hate, but dislike him enough that it will ruin Tomorrow When the War Began for me... grrrrr

  17. Ugh, I'm not a Miley fan :( I might still give Wake a try though. I loved it.
    Didn't know Shiver had been optioned! I hope they do it justice!!
    So excited for Beautiful Creatures :)
    Great post!
