Hello, friends. It’s Thursday which in Finding Wonderland’s world means it’s time for another “booktube talk” post. Or it does for the 50% of the time I find the organization to film a video, edit and upload.
2019 Book-to-Movie Adaptations I’m Excited For
(Disclosure: this post does contain affiliate links; if you buy anything through these links, I may receive a small percentage of the sale at no extra cost to you. Read the disclosure page for details.)
We go to the movies today and feature five book to film adaptations I’m excited about. Of course, there are more I’ll discover that earn 2019 release dates, or some I missed when putting this together, but for now, these are five I’m excited (or cautiously optimistic) to see.
The former is one I that I’m curious about, but the more I read about it, the more convinced I am it’s not my cup of tea. Still I may eventually see the film. Elle Fanning will star in the Jennifer Niven story, which far as I know Netflix has the rights to debut. Here’s the synopsis:
Theodore Finch is fascinated by death, and he constantly thinks of ways he might kill himself. But each time, something good, no matter how small, stops him.
Violet Markey lives for the future, counting the days until graduation, when she can escape her Indiana town and her aching grief in the wake of her sister’s recent death.
When Finch and Violet meet on the ledge of the bell tower at school, it’s unclear who saves whom. And when they pair up on a project to discover the “natural wonders” of their state, both Finch and Violet make more important discoveries: It’s only with Violet that Finch can be himself—a weird, funny, live-out-loud guy who’s not such a freak after all. And it’s only with Finch that Violet can forget to count away the days and start living them. But as Violet’s world grows, Finch’s begins to shrink.
This is an intense, gripping novel perfect for fans of Jay Asher, Rainbow Rowell, John Green, Gayle Forman, and Jenny Downham from a talented new voice in YA, Jennifer Niven. – Goodreads
The Nightingale is an adult historical that does interest me, however since I’m not a reader who gravitates towards reads drenched in sorrow, I’m also nervous about this one. That said, I feel like I could be swayed to read this one before ‘Bright Places.’ Despite it having a 2019 date on some lists, I have a feeling this isn’t one we’ll see this year. The information is sparse, and I don’t see much about cast either. Here’s the synopsis:
France, 1939. In the quiet village of Carriveau, Vianne Mauriac says goodbye to her husband, Antoine, as he heads for the Front. She doesn’t believe that the Nazis will invade France…but invade they do, in droves of marching soldiers, in caravans of trucks and tanks, in planes that fill the skies and drop bombs upon the innocent. When France is overrun, Vianne is forced to take an enemy into her house, and suddenly her every move is watched; her life and her child’s life is at constant risk. Without food or money or hope, as danger escalates around her, she must make one terrible choice after another.
Vianne’s sister, Isabelle, is a rebellious eighteen-year-old girl, searching for purpose with all the reckless passion of youth. While thousands of Parisians march into the unknown terrors of war, she meets the compelling and mysterious Gäetan, a partisan who believes the French can fight the Nazis from within France, and she falls in love as only the young can…completely. When he betrays her, Isabelle races headlong into danger and joins the Resistance, never looking back or giving a thought to the real–and deadly–consequences. – Goodreads
