Story time: 2012, The Year of Books-to-Movies Adaptations?

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).

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.

 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?
