One year, so many film adaptations

Many many thanks to fellow blogger Misty from KindleObsessed, who has recently published a comprehensive list of the film adaptations to look out for over the next 12 months.

Here is an excerpt from her list. (I certainly have some work ahead.)

  1. Hmmm... I don't think I am interested in any of these as movie adaptations! That is unusual. =)

  2. Really?? Not a single one? I'm hanging out for the Hollywood version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and although details are scant so far - it will be interesting to see how The Host is converted to the big screen.

  3. I know! Seeing a list of movie titles that don't interest me is... strange, since I am normally always intrigued by something upcoming in theaters. =)

  4. I've just found another list by Confessions of a Book Addict, which includes an adaptation of Anna Karenina starring Keira Knightley.. Does that one tickle your fancy??

  5. Believe it or not, I've not seen a single version of "Anna Karina" - but I just may see this 2011 adaptation because of Keira.

    I might see "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" but really that would only be for the cast. =D
