Books to Movies: !!!!

Most of these books that are becoming movies will probably be old news to some, but let me tell you how excited I am for these upcoming releases:
*Cat pictures do not belong to me unless stated so
                            Divergent by Veronica Roth
Guys. Shailene Woodley (Secret Life of an American Teenager) is playing Tris in this movie. I personally think she's perfect for the role and I can't wait to see this opening night. Also, Mr. Hottie McHot pants, Theo James (Underworld: Awakening) will be playing Four. He's British, 'nough said. Get excited. Very excited.
In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago world, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue--Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is--she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.
During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles alongside her fellow initiates to live out the choice they have made. Together they must undergo extreme physical tests of endurance and intense psychological simulations, some with devastating consequences. As initiation transforms them all, Tris must determine who her friends really are--and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes exasperating boy fits into the life she's chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she's kept hidden from everyone because she's been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers unrest and growing conflict that threaten to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves . . . or it might destroy her.

Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead
I really liked Vampire Academy and I'm kinda stoked to see it become a
movie. Actors like Sarah Hyland (Modern Family), Zoey Deutch  (Beautiful Creatures), and Danila Kozlovsky (a bunch of Russian movies; he's playing Dimitri...yum yum yum). It comes out next year so be ready. You're Welcome---------->

St. Vladimir’s Academy isn’t just any boarding school—it’s a hidden place where vampires are educated in the ways of magic and half-human teens train to protect them. Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, a bodyguard for her best friend Lissa, a Moroi Vampire Princess. They’ve been on the run, but now they’re being dragged back to St. Vladimir’s—the very place where they’re most in danger...
Rose and Lissa become enmeshed in forbidden romance, the Academy’s ruthless social scene, and unspeakable nighttime rituals. But they must be careful lest the Strigoi—the world’s fiercest and most dangerous vampires—make Lissa one of them forever.

                                      The Maze Runner by James Dashner
I absolutely loved this book and I'm so excited to hear that it'll be releasing early next year (February). I'm interested to see how they deal with the sets and effects, but I think the movie making people will do a great job! Dylan O'Brien (Teen Wolf) will be playing Thomas while Kaya Scodelario (Skins) will be playing Theresa. 

 When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his first name. His memory is blank. But he’s not alone. When the lift’s doors open, Thomas finds himself surrounded by kids who welcome him to the Glade—a large, open expanse surrounded by stone walls.
Just like Thomas, the Gladers don’t know why or how they got to the Glade. All they know is that every morning the stone doors to the maze that surrounds them have opened. Every night they’ve closed tight. And every thirty days a new boy has been delivered in the lift.
Thomas was expected. But the next day, a girl is sent up—the first girl to ever arrive in the Glade. And more surprising yet is the message she delivers.
Thomas might be more important than he could ever guess. If only he could unlock the dark secrets buried within his mind.
