You know what I realized while surfing the internet for good movies coming out this year? I realized that 2012 might actually be the year of the book-to-movie adaptations.
The amount of book-to movie-adaptations coming out this year is mind-blowing! Maybe it's just me but I never realized how many books are actually turned into movies. Am I right? Is this the year of the books-to-movies? Or have they always been this many and am I just now realizing it? I decided to make a list just so we can figure it out together (and maybe even stare awe-struck and open-mouthed at it).

1. Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close
2. The Hunger Games
And here's a trailer I just had to post. Harvard Lampoon is releasing a book called The Hunger Pains: A Parody on February 7, which is, you guessed it, a parody of The Hunger Games. And this is the trailer that goes with it.
3. The Lucky One
4. What to Expect When You're Expecting
5. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn-Part 2
6. Life of Pi
7. The Hobbit
8. The Great Gatsby
9. I, Alex Cross
11. The Mortal Instruments
12. The Perks of Being a Wallflower
So, there are at least 12 book-to-movie adaptations coming out in 2012. Some (like The Maze Runner) I left out because I wasn't sure whether they would actually be released in 2012. And I might have even forgotten a few.
So what do you think, is 2012 the year of the books-to-movies adaptation?
