20 Books to Read Before They're Adapted into 2012 Movies

I had no idea what to write about and I didn't want to not post anything since I'm challenging myself to come up with something at least twice a week.  Then I saw this article over on buzzsugar.com
20 Books to Read Before They're Adapted into 2012 Movies

Here is the list of 20 books:
One for the Money by Janet Evonovhch I've read the books up to like number 13 and then gave up, I'm probably not going to see the movie.
The Woman in Black by Susan Hill I'm not into horror movies so I'll be passing on this one
The Vow by Kim and Krickett Carpenter I'm seeing this!
The Lorax by Dr. Suess I'm seeing this!
John Carter on Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs I'm not seeing this
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins I'm seeing this! I just started the book...I know I'm a little late in starting, I've had the audiobook for awhile now just haven't listened to it.
The Lucky One by Nicholas Sparks I'm not seeing this
The Wettest County in the World by Matt Bondurant I don't know about this one.  The story sounds interesting, this may be one I wait and watch on DVD
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith  I don't know about this one.
Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell I'm not seeing this
Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer I'm seeing this!
Les Miserable by Victor Hugo I'm seeing this!
The Hobbitt by J.R.R. Tolkien I'm seeing this!
Life of Pi by Yann Martel I'm seeing this!
World War Z by Max Brooks I don't know about this one.
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald I don't know about this one, did they really have to remake it? 
On the Road by Jack Kerouac I don't know about this one.
Cosmopolis by Don DeLillo I don't know about this one.
Another Bullsh*t Night in Suck City by Nick Flynn I don't know about this one.
The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky I don't know about this one. If I do decide to see this I want to read the book first, its been on my TBR list for awhile now.


  1. I'm usually a super huge fan of audiobooks, but I was disappointed by the reader for the 2nd Hunger Games (I'm not sure if it's the same person for the 1st book). I had the printed books for the 1st and 3rd in the series and they went much faster!

    The Nick Flynn one .... did you read the book? Just curious, I read the book he wrote after that one and had only so-so feelings about it.

  2. Darn! I was hoping my book was on the list and I just hadn't gotten the phone call (from Hollywood) yet.

  3. If your book was on that list it would have a big pink I'm seeing this!

  4. No I haven't read it. It sounded interesting I was going to try it.
