2018 is the year I am finally gonna be hyped about film adaptations of books. Maybe you know this or maybe you don’t but I avoid film adaptations of books like the plague. I hate them and am always wary of them. There are so many good ones happening this year and there are so many books I ~know~ would be great on the big screen so I AM FINALLY ON BOARD.
1. Crazy Rich Asians
I absolutely adore the novel and am gonna die when I finally get to see the movie. I am 100% on board with the casting and cannot believe this movie is happening. Everyone is invited to my funeral once I pass away after watching the movie…
2. Love, Simon
I was a little wary about this one because I loved the book but then the trailer dropped and I lost my fucking mind.
3. A Wrinkle In Time
I love the book. I’ve only read it 4 times when I rarely re-read a book. I will die if this movie doesn’t hold up to my expectations and my childhood dreams. Like previously, you’re all invited to attend the funeral.
4. To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before
I own the entire trilogy. I haven’t read it. BUT. I’ve been following along with the authors photos and diaries from her time on-set and I am honestly so curious and looking forward to the movie.
5. Every Day
I read and loved this book years ago and while I am still waiting on a sequel that is a continuation of the book, I’ll happily watch the movie in the meantime! Also, really hope they don’t het-wash the movie.
6. Where Did You Go, Bernadette
Where Did You Go, Bernadette took the world by storm when it came out so much that even I succumbed and acquired a copy. While that copy sits on my shelf, collecting dust, I eagerly await the release of the movie because lets face it, it’s probably gonna be a GOOD movie. I’ll try to be a good bookworm and read the book beforehand.
What book-film adaptations are you looking forward to this year?

The only one I’m not familiar with is Where You’d Go.
I tried reading Crazy Rich Asians a few weeks back and just couldn’t get into it. I want to try it again as audio before I see it. And see it, I must! I love Constance Wu!
Yass, most of these are movies I’m looking forward to this year as well!
Gonna hit the theaters hard this year, amirite?
omg I am ready for Crazy Rich Asians. I just need to read the book. And maybe if I can handle it I’ll drag my mom to it too. Unless I find a reason I shouldn’t LOL.
Also I have a feeling they’re going to het-wash/fat-shame Every Day, just by watching the trailer. BUT I’ll still hope for you.
She might like it, tbh.
FUCK. I AM MAD. WHY ARE THEY GONNA HETWASH/FATSHAME EVERY DAY??? UGHhhhhhhhhhhhasudablsdasdjasdbjasdjasdjlas
Once it premiers, I’ll see what happens. Every Day is not a het romance and people need to stop reading it as such.
A Wrinkle In Time is bound to be good!
I hope so, Carole!!!!

I’m so sad that I haven’t read ANY of these yet! To All the Boys & Simon VS are actually the only ones on my TBR, but I feel like people give me weird looks when I say I haven’t read A Wrinkle in Time, so maybe I should read that one too…
I won’t give you a weird look but I will nudge the book towards you in an attempt to get you to read it! Fair warning, it is pretty young so if you do read it, keep that in mind?? Or you could just watch the movie. I won’t judge.

How did I not know they were making Every Day into a film? You’ve just informed me haha! About time I finally read the book before it comes out! <3

Oh yay! I am glad I could help! 🙂 I hope you really enjoy the book!
Crazy Rich Asians!
I am so hyped for that movie. Its my most anticipated of this year, no question.

So many movie adaptations coming this year! I’m really looking forward to A Wrinkle in Time, otherwise I actually haven’t read any of the books from this list though I’ve been wanting to pick up Crazy Rich Asians. I suppose now might be a good time to read it, I had no idea they were making a movie. Thanks for sharing. 🙂
