8 YA Books That are Getting the Big-Screen Treatment in 2018
We have to admit that we seriously love to read. There may or may not have been multiple times when we have canceled plans to stay at home to read or have pulled all-nighters just to find out what happens next to our favorite characters. We can’t even think about the amount of times we have read Harry Potter because it’s probably way too high of a number.
One of the best things about Harry Potter, besides the obvious fact that it’s one of the best series ever created and that J.K. Rowling is our literary queen, is that we have eight movies to watch as well. Almost nine movies now if you count the new prequel series of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
Yes, we know that there are inconsistencies throughout the movies and that there were some creative liberties taken when it came to filming the flicks. But no matter how you view it, we get double the magic by having both the books AND movies.
Thankfully, some of the best young adult novels are getting the big-screen treatment and are heading to theaters in just a few months. (SIDE NOTE: The fact that we can say 2018 is just a few months away and be correct is scary). Although the movie scene this year has been nothing short of dismal when it comes to box-office successes, we have high hopes that these movie adaptations are going to be insanely good.
Almost every one of these books has a super strong fan base already, and mixed in with the fact that there’s a big Hollywood name tied to each movie, we think it’s the perfect recipe. Seriously, can 2018 get here already just so we can see these movies?!
Maze Runner: The Death Cure
This is the one we have been waiting so long for! We finally get to see the Gladers come together for their most dangerous mission yet and go against WCKD one last time. We'll definitely be holding our breath every time Dylan O'Brien does any intense fighting, especially since this is the movie in which he got severely injured.
Thankfully, we don' t have to wait too much longer because it lands in theaters on January 26.
