Ready, Set, Popcorn!

There are some great books being made into movies this year! Now, whether the movie will be any good is, of course, a question. But, if you want to do a bit of reading before the movie hits, here are a few suggestions.

The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins (and honestly, you probably already knew about this one)
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children
by Ransom Riggs
Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk by Ben Fountain
A Hologram for the King by Dave Eggers
A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness
The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman
Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll

I do understand it’s sometimes better to skip a book, see the movie, and then try the book. Personally, I prefer the movie Chocolat to the book. Conversely, I’ve never been able to watch The Godfather because I read the book a few times and the actors never quite matched the characters I had in my head. However, if you are curious about the books (or would like to revisit them), you’ll find them in our catalog.
