Peachy News: Books into Movies 2013


Hello fellow book lovers!

I thought I would share something a little different today other than purely book reviews and book updates. As I was doing a little researhing I was very (VERY!) excited to find out that some book which I have read (and adored) are slowly in the making of becoming a movie! I couldn't help but let out a little scream of excitement! I know for a fact now that (almost) no movie beats the true essence, beauty and "in-depthness" of a book, however I still enjoy watching the story of a book being played out on the big screens! There are many more books out there which will be made into a movie, but I wanted to show you these to make it a little interesting (and exciting)!




The Book: Blood Red Road
The Author: Moira Young
Movie or TV show? Movie!
Review: See my review *here*
Status: In development
Coming out: 2014
The Gossip"The incredible box office successes of Harry Potter, Twilight and The Hunger Games has left movie producers scrambling for the next young adult phenomenon. Moira Young's "Blood Red Road" is in production with Ridley Scott with an eye on 2014. It's Young's first novel and she has plans for a trilogy under the title 'Dust Lands'" Examiner.com

I am so extremely excited for this book to come out as a movie. As I had mentioned in my Liebster Award interview I strongly felt that Blood Red Road would make a perfect movie! There is not a lot of information out yet about the casting, director, or status of the movie but there are speculations that the movie is expected to come out in 2014. That means a very long wait for us Blood Red Road fans, but at least it's something to look forward to! I still need to read the second book of Moira Young's trilogy,  Rebel Heart, so that will definitely be next on my TBR list! Please read my review on Blood Red Road  here.




The Book: Delirium
The Author: Lauren Oliver
Movie or TV show? TV show!
Film Rights: Disney
Review: See my review *here*
Status: In development
Coming out: 2013
The Gossip"Deadline reports that Fox 2000 has purchased the screen rights to the New York Times bestselling novel, in addition to signing a first-look deal with Lauren's company Paper Lantern Lit (meaning more of the author's works could land in theaters in the coming years)." hollywoodcrush.mtv.com

I wasn't sure what to think when Lauren Oliver stated that Delirium may be turned into a TV show. It is unsure yet which channel will broadcast the series (CW? Fox?) and who would be in the cast, but I hope they really don't fail to portray how beautiful this original and emotional story truly is. I look forward to the developments of this series and to find out who will be directing it and most of all, who will be playing Lena! Who do you think would be the ideal actress for the part? 





The Book: Matched
The Author: Ally Condie
Movie or TV show? Movie!
Review: See my review *here*
Status: In development
Coming out: 2013
The Gossip"Disney and Offspring Entertainment have formed a love connection over Ally Condie's upcoming young adult novel "Matched."
The Mouse House fended off Paramount in a bidding war to pick up the film rights to the soon-to-be-published book for the shingle, run by Adam Shankman and Jennifer Gibgot, to produce." variety.com
The Trailer: (Created by Author)

Even though I was never really fond of the book, I was always in love with the concept of Matched. I thought that it very unique and special. The book itself I was unfortunately not very fond of. Nonetheless, I am still pretty excited to see how this book will turn out to be as a serie, and perhaps they will tweak a few things in order to make it more 'likable' for the viewers (seeing that not a lot of readers were fond of the book). Check out my review here!


Thankfully there are many more books which are slowly being made into movies, for example Divergent, The Host, Beautiful Creatures, The Maze Runner, etc. Even though not all movies originated from books seem to be as 'satisfying' as the books itself, but I always do find it exciting to see how the author and producer pictured the story line, the characters, and other things! I'm sure we still have a long time to wait until these three books will be out on the big screen (or on your TV), but it will definitely be interesting to keep an eye on these and to look forward to when they do finally come out :)

Are you waiting for any books to be made into a movie?
