2015 is looking like the year of book to movie adaptations, and this isn’t even nearly all of the movies coming out. Is Hollywood running out of new ideas? Are people realizing how great these books are? Who knows, but I’m excited. Here are the books to read before they come out in theaters later this year (you know, so you can explain to everyone how the book was so much better than the movie. ….What do you mean people hate that?)
Dark Places, by Gillian Flynn (Spring 2015)
The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling (October 9)
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs (This is actually March 4 2016)
Room by Emma Donoghue (Unknown release date)
The Longest Ride by Nicholas Sparks (Is there ever NOT a Nicholas Sparks movie on the horizon? April 10)
A Book of Common Prayer by Joan Didion (unknown release date)
Paper Towns by John Green (June 5)
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith (Unknown release date)
In the Heart of the Sea by Nathaniel Philbrick (March 15)
Still Alice by Lisa Genova (January 16)
A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini (Unknown release date)
A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson (Unknown release date)
Still looking for more movies to be? Shannon at River City Reading put together another great list with even more books, most of which aren’t on this list!
What are you most looking forward to seeing on the big screen this year?
