6 Books Coming to a Screen Near You

On-screen adaptations of books have been doing really well lately and I think studios and streaming platforms are all excited to get their hands on the next big thing. There are a number of books being turned into movies or TV shows as we speak, but here are the 6 I’m most excited for. Titles link to their IMDB page.

1) The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness (2020)

Chaos Walking movie

I liked the book quite a bit, but I don’t plan on continuing with the series for various reasons. It’ll be interesting to see how this movie comes across as so much of the book is in the main character’s head. And also, the movie is going to be called “Chaos Walking” instead of “The Knife of Never Letting Go” so does that mean the movie is covering the whole series? Looks like a great cast though.

Starring: Tom Holland, Daisy Ridley, Nick Jonas

2) The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon (May 17, 2019)

The Sun is Also a Star movie

This is one I haven’t read yet, but I’ve only heard good things and I think it’s amazing that Yoon has come out with two books and gotten two movies deals (that actually came to fruition). She is rocking it!

Starring: Yara Shahidi, Charles Melton

eBook | Hardcover | Paperback

3) Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer (August 9, 2019)

Artemis Fowl movie

I loved Artemis Fowl as a kid! Was I the only one who was obsessed with decoding the symbols on every page? Even though it was a repeating message, I did the whole thing because I was sure there might be a difference or something new later haha. Anyway, I think it’s interesting that they’re finally coming out with the movie now. I have almost no recollection of the storyline, so I might have to pick this back up as a refresher before the movie comes out.

Starring: Ferdia Shaw, Judi Dench, Josh Gad

4) The Woman in the Window by A.J. Finn (October 4, 2019)

The Woman in the Window movie

This book has made quite a splash and especially with this article coming out about the author, I’m a little more wary of supporting this author (he kind of creeps me out now, and that transfers over to his book). But, it’s got a great cast and I’d be interested to see if they follow the book exactly or if they throw in some new twists.

Starring: Amy Adams, Gary Oldman, Julianne Moore, Anthony Mackie

eBook | Hardcover | Paperback

5) Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli (2019)

Stargirl

Another one of my childhood favorites! I’ve reread “Stargirl” a few times over the years and it’s always so good. It’s magical and emotional and I hope, hope, HOPE that they don’t ruin it with the movie!

Starring: Grace VanderWaal

eBook | Hardcover | Paperback

6) Good Omens by Neil Gaiman & Terry Pratchett (TV Series, 2019)

Good Omens tv show

Another one that I haven’t read yet, but I love Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett and David Tennant seems like the PERFECT person for them to team up with. This book has definitely moved a few places up my TBR so I can be ready for this show. Honestly though…Pratchett and Gaiman…what a pairing.

Starring: David Tennant, Michael Sheen

eBook | Hardcover | Paperback

If you’re interested in purchasing any of these books and are anything like me, you should consider making that purchase now before the only cover that exists are the dumb movie tie-in covers.

Which of these movies are you most excited about? What other books are you excited to see on the big screen soon?

  1. WHAT A STARGIRL ADAPTATION!?! My childhood self would be so happy. Also, I keep forgetting that they’re adapting The Sun is Also a Star, and every time I am reminded I get so excited.

  2. I need a date for Good Omens already! It’s like they did that one preview just to tease me and nothing 🙂 I’ll have to check again. Still torn on the Knife of Never Letting Go but would be interesting to see Holland in something other than Spiderman form 🙂

  3. I am so so so excited for The Sun is Also A Start! I adored the book and how cute Natasha and Daniel are. My friend did mention that Daniel looks like he’s 30 which I can totally see. I saw him as a bit more dorky and not as much of a “hipster” vibe as he seems to have in the movie. But maybe after seeing the movie, I’ll like that image of him even more.

  4. I read Good Omens last year, and it wasn’t as good as I was hoping. I think it will translate well to the screen though and be a better visual story than written. It was hard to keep track of in book form. But it is perfectly cast too!
