Erin Lynn I thought it would be a neat idea just to keep track of the book adaptations you've seen in 2014.

So far, I've seen Divergent and The Fault in Our Stars. I plan on seeing a few more, including some Adult Fiction adaptations.

Divergent, the fault in our stars

I think that's all that has been released for YA so far. It seems like they are all doing a fall or winter push.

I will have to find it sooner than later then. I know a lot of my students were reading it. From what I can tell, it's one of those books that you either love or hate.

Alaina (alaina05) | 1 comments The maze runner actually comes out September 19th, I just don't want you to go to the theater prepared to see it and it doesn't come out for another 10 days..

And I've seen Divergent and Vampire Academy so far this year. I'm seeing tfios in a few days, and I can't wait for the Giver, If I Stay, Mockingjay pt 1, The Maze Runner and others:)


These Violent Delights (Robin) I plan to see Mockingjay pt 1 within the first week it comes out. I also plan to see The Hobbit: Battle Of The Five Armies within the week it comes out.

I rented VA when it came on Time Warner cable on demand because my sister wanted to see it. I also saw Divergent in theaters and bought Divergent on DVD the day it came out.

Ron Scheer | 8 comments wanting to see Maze Runner

and when it it comes out THE RANGER'S APPRENTICE


message 21: by Erin Lynn (new)

Erin Lynn Is If I Stay any good? I've heard that quite a few people hated it, so I'm afraid of seeing it.

I might find a link online, though. That's how I watched TFIOS.

It followed the book pretty well, there were a few parts that I was quite disappointed in.


message 30: by Sabrina (new)

Sabrina (forebodinq) I've seen Vampire Academy, Divergent, The Fault in Our Stars and The Giver.


message 31: by Erin Lynn (new)

Erin Lynn I heard a bunch of kids at a school the other day talking about The Maze Runner, and they all hated it. They said it was very loosely based on the book.

I still haven't read it, but it's on my list! I guess I'll just have to wait and see.

Is anyone planning on seeing Gone Girl or The Best of Me? I read both books, and I was quite disappointed in Gone Girl, but I want to see it just to see how well it follows the book. I really liked The Best of Me, so I know I'll be seeing that.

I still have to see If I Stay and The Giver, and I can't wait until Mockingjay comes out!

I know! I'm on a book buying ban right now because I spent pretty much my entire bank account on books this summer. Oops.

I spent over 600 dollars on books and movies this summer. I think I need to fix my financial skills.

I didn't see any movies this summer, but at the beginning of the summer, I had over $1300, and it was down to $200 by the beginning of August. Of course there was some money going towards groceries, gas, and other bills, but a large chunk was towards books.


message 38: by Janessa (new)

Janessa I've seen The Giver, and recently I watch a version of Hamlet and The Great Gatsby the original one starring Robert Redford so much better then the new one I think.


message 39: by Rachel (new)

Rachel | 4 comments I have seen TFIOS and Divergent. I want to watch Mockingjay Part 1 when it comes out on dvd. I can't wait for Tiger's Curse to come to theaters. I love this series. The director had better not ruin it.


message 40: by Erin Lynn (new)

Erin Lynn Divergent
The Fault in Our Stars
If I Stay
Mockingjay Part I


message 41: by Susan (new)

Susan I just saw Divergent. I realize that I'm the only person on the planet who has not read the book yet : ), but I was wondering why the Dauntless Faction leader (Eric?) is so cranky? The movie tells us about Tobias's issues, but does Eric have some issues that aren't mentioned in the movie or is he just a bad egg?
