Hi bookish friends! I hope you’re having a wonderful month so far! Today I’m coming back to you with my monthly feature, Showtime. Because we all imagine stories in our minds, but what happens when they become alive in front of our eyes? In this feature, I’ll provide you with the latest news of upcoming movies, tv shows and projects in development, obviously related with young adult books.
Today, I’m going to do something a little different than the other times, because I didn’t find any movie coming out in october. So let’s take a look at some upcomings book adaptations. Whether they’re in development, or in pre-production…which one are you the most excited for?!
Please note that my sources are, well, the internet, and, when talking about book to movie adaptations, nothing is as sure as seeing the official trailer, and seeing the actual movie on the big screen. If they’re in development, this sadly doesn’t mean it’s going to happen soon, but let’s keep our fingers crossed! 🙂
Showtime – October 2015
Adapted from The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight, by Jennifer E. Smith
Director: Dustin Lance Black
Stars: Hailee Steinfeld, Robert Sheehan
So, okay, I had NO idea this was going to be a movie, and honestly, I’m really excited about it, now. I really enjoyed the book, it was such a sweet, entertaining story, and I cared for the characters a lot. Plus, I loved that this story left a big part to the family, too, and not only focused on the romance. I don’t think this cast is bad, I don’t know those actors well, so I can’t really tell…I hope to hear some more news about this soon!
Let it Snow
Adapted from Let it snow, by John Green, Maureen Johnson, Lauren Myracle
I know, it’s not Christmas yet and there’s no reason for me to talk about a little snow right now…but let’s, anyway, shall we! As you all know, I’m a big fan of John Green’s work, and I really enjoyed Let it snow, for what he, and the others wrote, obviously. I think this would make a really interesting, Christmas-y movie, to watch under the covers on a snowy night! It’s, according to IMDb, scheduled for next winter…let’s keep our fingers crossed!

To be honest, I have no idea if this is going to happen, or not…but wouldn’t everyone around here love to? I didn’t read this book yet -I definitely need more money to get some new books, haha-, but having heard everything about this story, I’m just really excited to know it’s going to be a movie. A while ago, Variety announced Jamie Linden to write the screenplay, but since then…no news…do any of you guys know anything about this?
Adapted from Everything, Everything, by Nicola Yoon
Yet another book on my TBR that I absolutely need to read as soon as possible! I’ve only heard great things about this, so obviously I’m excited…and did you guys know that the rights for this movie were optioned by MGM? Well, I didn’t until just now, ahah. Actually, the article is a little bit dated, but since we have no news of that yet… can we say, no news, good news? Let’s wait and see!
