Recently, the trend for books to movies had been increasing. This year alone Divergent and Vampire Academy have been made into movies based off their novels with plans for The Fault in our Stars, and If I Stay to be released as movies also.
The Fault in Our Stars:
SYNOPSIS: Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten.
Unfortunately, I have not read this book and can’t really tell you anymore about it, but from what I’ve heard (and I’ve heard a lot) this is a great book that inspires and touches the heart. Disclaimer: read the ending by yourself, I hear its super sad.
CAST: Ansel Elgort as Augustus Waters, Shailene Woodley as Hazel Grace Lancaster, Nat Wolff as Isaac, Willem Dafoe as Peter van Houten, Emily Peachey as Monica, Laura Dern as Mrs. Lancaster, Sam Trammell as Mr. Lancaster, Mike Birbiglia as Patrick, Lotte Verbeek as Lidewij Vliegenthart, and Allegra Carpenter as Hostess
If I Stay
SYNOPSIS: In a single moment, everything changes. Seventeen year-old Mia has no memory of the accident; she can only recall riding along the snow-wet Oregon road with her family. Then, in a blink, she finds herself watching as her own damaged body is taken from the wreck…
I read this book maybe three years ago and was immediately addicted from page one. We watch as the main character falls in love, struggles to fit in, and prepares for the biggest moment in her life: auditioning for Julliard. But one moment can change all that. When a freak car accident kills her, suddenly she is watching herself in a coma as her loved ones beg her to fight. Which will she choose? To stay, or to go?
The second installment the this series, Where She Went, was released in 2011.
If you had a second chance at first love . . . would you take it?
It’s been three years since Adam’s love saved Mia after the accident that annihilated life as she knew it . . . and three years since Mia walked out of Adam’s life forever.
Now living on opposite coasts, Mia is Julliard’s rising star and Adam is LA tabloid fodder, thanks to his new rock star status and celebrity girlfriend. When Adam gets stuck in New York by himself, chance brings the couple together again, for one last night. As they explore the city that has become Mia’s home, Adam and Mia revisit the past and open their hearts to the future – and each other.
CAST: Chloe Grace Moretz as Mia, Mireille Enos as Kat, Liana Liberato as Kim, Jamie Blackley as Adam, Joshua Leonard as Denny, Lauren Lee Smith as Willow, Sarah Grey as Cute Groupie, Jakob Davies as Teddy, Aliyah O’Brien as EMT, and Ali Milner as Liz
