Monday Muse: Movies from Books in 2014
Happy Monday! Last week has been a hectic week with all the midterm tests. I'm sorry I couldn't be around much. HUGE thank you for all the short story suggestions! It's such a big help and I can't thank all of you enough. *bows*
My class decides to pick Lysistrata for our theater performance. It's a funny Greek comedy which will not be set in Greek anymore when we perform it haha. I'm thinking of Binge by Rachel Vincent for the rewriting task in my Short Story assignment - it's wonderful and very sad! It's part of Immortal: Love Stories with Bite anthology. You should check the anthology out when you have time! :)
Today I'm going to talk about 2014 movie adaptations from books which I can't wait!
1. The Fault in Our Stars
Anyone who is around this blog long enough must have known my undying obsession with The Fault in Our Stars. The trailer is okay for me. It's so fluffyyyyyyyy. Hopefully the movie will hold more of the aching and brilliant thoughts which I adore! ;)

2. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
Gone Girl is a very twisted story with even more twisted characters. IT BLEW MY MIND. With Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike for the casts, I hope we're going to have a movie as great as the book! You can read what to expect on Gone Girl movie here on The Hollywood Reporter. :)

3. Mockingjay Part 1 by Suzanne Collins
I'm going to pass the possibility of humiliating myself by gushing again and again and again how much I can't wait for the movie adaptation. Aaaah Peeta. How I wish we could have more of you in the movie later! My only console is dear Finnick, of course...
4. If I Stay by Gayle Forman
I'M NOT CRYING IT'S JUST MY HEART SHARDS GETTING INTO MY EYES.
I can't imagine watching this without crying once or twice. The second book, Where She Went, is even better with all the angry tone from other character's POV! You should read it at least once for its beautiful, heartwarming story. :)
And that's the list of movies from books which I can't wait to watch! Of course, there are still many other movies I can't wait like The Maze Runner, Trash, and Hector and the Search for Happiness. If only Anna and the French Kiss could be adapted into a movie! *prays*
What movie adaptation are you most excited for in 2014? :)
Happy Monday, and I hope you're having a wonderful start of the week! <3
