4 Books I Have To Finish Reading Before I Watch The Movie! (2016 Edition)

2016 is deem to be an interesting year for bookworms, mainly because several awesome books will be going to the big screen you guys!
Its beginning to be the trend that they turn books into movies which I personally think is fantastic. As for 2016, these few books caught my eyes soon enough I got to know there will be movies based on them and they are:-
  • Me Before You – Jojo Moyes;
  • Room – Emma Donoghue;
  • Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children – Ransom Riggs; and
  • Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them – J.K Rowling 

The ones I have currently

1. Me Before You by Jojo Moyes

Lou Clark knows lots of things. She knows how many footsteps there are between the bus stop and home. She knows she likes working in The Buttered Bun tea shop and she knows she might not love her boyfriend Patrick. 
What Lou doesn’t know is she’s about to lose her job or that knowing what’s coming is what keeps her sane. 
Will Traynor knows his motorcycle accident took away his desire to live. He knows everything feels very small and rather joyless now and he knows exactly how he’s going to put a stop to that. 
What Will doesn’t know is that Lou is about to burst into his world in a riot of colour. And neither of them knows they’re going to change the other for all time.

4/5 stars

I finished reading this book last January and it was soooo good. If you are into lovey dovey, romantic plots, then I think you might enjoy this. Just a heads up, its very the “P/s: I love you” kinda book so for me, I love it. Cannot wait to drag SS to watch this movie which is coming to our shores very soon. If you haven’t watch the trailer, here you go and get your tissues ready.

2. Room by Emma Donoghue

To five-year-old Jack, Room is the entire world. It is where he was born and grew up; it’s where he lives with his Ma as they learn and read and eat and sleep and play. At night, his Ma shuts him safely in the wardrobe, where he is meant to be asleep when Old Nick visits.

Room is home to Jack, but to Ma, it is the prison where Old Nick has held her captive for seven years. Through determination, ingenuity, and fierce motherly love, Ma has created a life for Jack. But she knows it’s not enough…not for her or for him. She devises a bold escape plan, one that relies on her young son’s bravery and a lot of luck. What she does not realize is just how unprepared she is for the plan to actually work.

Told entirely in the language of the energetic, pragmatic five-year-old Jack, Room is a celebration of resilience and the limitless bond between parent and child, a brilliantly executed novel about what it means to journey from one world to another.

Can’t say much as I have yet to read this book but am determined to start soon. 
3. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

This book I actually got it from the Big Bad Wolf (BBW) sale last December and the creepily beautiful cover caught my attention. Didn’t know anything about this book and the movie thats coming out in 2016 but it was only RM8 so I thought meh might just as well buy this. 
A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. A strange collection of curious photographs.

A horrific family tragedy sets sixteen-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that the children were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a deserted island for good reason. And somehow—impossible though it seems—they may still be alive.

A spine-tingling fantasy illustrated with haunting vintage photography, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children will delight adults, teens, and anyone who relishes an adventure in the shadows.

This movie is directed by the famous Tim Burton which without a doubt that the movie will turn out to be freaking awesome. I will watch this by hook or crook, even if I still have not finish reading the book. Watch the official trailer and you’ll get what I mean.

4. Fantastic Beats and Where to Find Them by J.K Rowling

ITS J.K ROWLING. End of story. Must read ASAP. MUST WATCH. 

They have yet to release the Official Trailer, I think, but there is an Official Teaser Trailer. 

Gila tanak tengok ni?!

What’s your take? Have you read any of these books? Do you prefer reading them or just watch the adapted movie version?
