It's a good time for book adaptations!
I just wanted to gush about two upcoming adaptations that are highly anticipated. One is Game of Thrones, a historical high fantasy that's heavy on the plot as well as full of awesome.
It's full of just about everything- love, hate, revenge, power plays... it's even got dragons! (Well, not in the first season maybe, but soon in the series!) The only drawback is that the author hasn't finished the series, but hopefully the April release date for the HBO series will help speed him along!
The other one is a book that I've yet to read, Hunger Games. This movie adaptation pits teenagers against each other, something that those familiar with the Japanese book/movie/manga Battle Royale will be highly familiar with. It's an intriguing idea & I'm really looking forward to seeing it!
