13 Amazing Books Being Turned Into Movies

Nowadays, it seems like every movie that comes to the screen was adapted from a book. This can be very hit or miss for me but I always find myself curious about how the film will match up to the book. I’m also one of those people that MUST read the book before the movie comes out. Here are a few upcoming movies based on some of our favorite books, both new and old.

Which books have you read? Which books will you read?

    It makes me sad that 50 shades of grey is on the same list as Anna Karenina :(

  3. Ashly says:

    I stopped reading after I saw that you consider Fifty Shades of Grey to be a good book. What trash.

    1. Tiffany-University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill says:

      I would say don’t judge a book by it’s cover but that’s not true in this case. The book really just made the list since it’s one of the most anticipated books turning into a movie. There really are a lot of great reads on here.

    2. mugs11 says:

      then you should change the title of your post. you invalidate your entire argument by claiming that 50 shades is 'an amazing book'

    3. Tiffany-University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill says:

      In a way, Fifty Shades is an “amazing” book. Not based on its merits as a piece of literature but rather to its achievements in increasing sales of online books and expanding readership. The series was also the fastest selling paperback series of all time, surpassing even Harry Potter.

  4. Person says:

    Where's "Atlas Shrugged"?!?!?! Also, where's Hollywood's creativity, is there no one there that write scripts and story lines anymore?

  5. SmarterPrimate says:

    "John Dies at the End" by David Wong should also be on this list.

  6. Wendy says:

    50 Shades of Grey is a great book. It is well written, has attention to detail and gives great background. Carrie is not something that I would consider a "GREAT" book, but I would never call it trash.

  7. aisha says:

    50 shades of grey is quite a piece.I love the book.

  8. Anony says:

    Wow…50 Shades of Grey but no Wuthering Heights? Obviously not an English Major…all I can say.

  9. John F. C. Taylor says:

    Oh good. Now I know what movies to not pay for at the box office.

  10. Abby says:

    So excited for most of these to be released!!

  11. bookwormsammi says:

    I look forward to seeing most of these

  12. codya says:

    50 shades?? REALLY??? I read three pages and was disgusted that this series sold 50 million plus books, it is horribly written, and even worse it has now spawned a slew of wanna be S&M writers, the way the horrible twilight novels spawned a slew of horrible vampire based novels.

    Beautiful Creatures will be the best book to movie this year. City of Bones=Shmitty of Bones
