3. An Amber In The Ashes By Sabaa Tahir

Imagine my shock when I realize this book is being made into a movie so soon, when the book itself was released only last year. It is confirmed the movie would be released in 2017, but the exact date is still TBA. The cast is also still unconfirmed, but it was announced that the producers would be author Sabaa Tahir’s brother, Haroon Salem is one of the producers, along with Mark Johnson, who worked in Breaking Bad and The Chronicles of Narnia.

It’s about a boy and girl (Violet Markey and Theodore Finch), who met on the top of a bell tower, which develop into an interesting relationship.

5. Before I Fall By Lauren Oliver

This one is actually not that surprising. It’s so popular and looking from the amount of books made in to movie every year, sooner or later this book would be made into a movie. Especially now, when Hollywood is running out of ideas. They would never let a good painful romance story like Before I fall go without giving it a shot. It’s schedule released date is April 7, 2017. The current announced casts are Zoey Deutch, Halston Sage, and Elena Kampouris. It’s a story of how after Sam died on February 12 , she was forced to relive that day over and over, while slowly discovering the truths about her death.

6. Wonder By R.J. Palacio

I read this book in middle school for summer reading. I’m actually most intrigued to know how they would make the ‘deformity’ on august for the film, because the author never really described it. It’s schedule released date is April 7, 2017, and its announced casts are Jacob Tremblay, Julia Roberts (wow), Owen Wilson, and Daveed Diggs. It’s about a boy who was deformed from birth as he tries to live a normal life, while people around him starts to accept him more as they slowly see past the ugly mask.

7. Fifty Shades Darker By E.L. James

Sequel to the book Fifty Shades of Grey. Should be expected form the success of the first book’s movie. Schedule to be released in February 10, 2017. If I’m not mistaken I believe the trailer is already up in the internet. The cast is still the same: Jamie Dornan, Dakota Johnson, Tyler Hoechlin, Kim Basinger, etc. The story follows Anastasia Steele as she uncovers more pasts about her current lover, Christian Grey.

8. The Mountain Between Us By Charles Martin

An inspirational romance survival novel. A wonderful book, so the movie better not disappoint. Schedule to be released on October 20, 2017. The current cast announced are Kate Winslet and Idris Elba.

10. The Dark Tower By Stephen King

Stephen King is one of the living writing legends. As a legend himself, he’s also the creator of other legends, such as The Shinning, Carrie, Firestarter, and dozens more.

The casts are Idris Elba, Matthew McConaughey, Jackie Earle Haley, Abbey Lee, and more to be announced. It’s the introduction to one of Stephen King’s most powerful creations, Roland of Gilead: The Last Gunslinger.
