From Books to Movies, Take 4

(Please note: the above image was found at Bobbins and Books)

For this edition of From Books to Movies I'm going to feature a couple of book to movie adaptations coming soon to a theater near you, one in just a few short months and the other not till 2015. I listed them with the latter release first because I've read that book. The other is on my TBR list. 

Fallen (Fallen #1) by Lauren Kate

Book Description: There’s something achingly familiar about Daniel Grigori.

Mysterious and aloof, he captures Luce Price’s attention from the moment she sees him on her first day at the Sword & Cross boarding school in sultry Savannah. He’s the one bright spot in a place where cell phones are forbidden, the other students are all screw-ups, and security cameras watch every move.

Even Daniel wants nothing to do with Luce – he goes out of his way to make that very clear. But she can’t let it go. Drawn to him like a moth to a flame, Luce has to find out what Daniel is so desperate to keep secret...even if it kills her.

Dangerously exciting and darkly romantic, FALLEN is a page-turning thriller and the ultimate love story.

Movie Description: A young girl finds herself in a reform school after therapy since she was blamed for the death of a young boy. At the school she finds herself drawn to a fellow student, unaware that he is an angel, and has loved her for thousands of years.

Casting: Addison Timlin as Luce Price, Jeremy Irvine as Daniel Grigori, Harrison Gilbertson as Cam Briel.
Directed by: Scott Hicks
Expected Release: 2015

If I Stay by Gayle Forman
Book Description: Just listen, Adam says with a voice that sounds like shrapnel.

I open my eyes wide now.
I sit up as much as I can.
And I listen.

Stay, he says.

Choices. Seventeen-year-old Mia is faced with some tough ones: Stay true to her first love—music—even if it means losing her boyfriend and leaving her family and friends behind?

Then one February morning Mia goes for a drive with her family, and in an instant, everything changes. Suddenly, all the choices are gone, except one. And it's the only one that matters.

If I Stay is a heart-achingly beautiful book about the power of love, the true meaning of family, and the choices we all make.

Movie Description: Mia Hall thought the hardest decision she would ever face would be whether to pursue her musical dreams at Juilliard or follow a different path to be with the love of her life, Adam. But what should have been a carefree family drive changes everything in an instant, and now her own life hangs in the balance. Caught between life and death for one revealing day, Mia has only one decision left, which will not only decide her future but her ultimate fate.

Casting: ChloĆ« Grace Moretz as Mia, Jamie Blackley as Adam
Director: R.J. Cutler
Release Date: August 22, 2014
