READ IT FIRST: Book to Movie Adaptations (July 2017 +)


It's time to update my master list of adaptations!
I love keeping up with these because I do prefer to read the book first and this really helps me stay up to date on what is coming out in the future so I can squeeze it onto my TBR.

I'm really slacking this year and have a lot of catching up to do but that just means I have to put off watching the movie until I get around to the book.

  3. I try to always read the book first but that doesn't always work. :) Sometimes I find myself going to the movie anyway, although it bugs me a little ha ha if I haven't read the book. Murder on the Orient Express and The death Cure are two I'm definitely looking forward to. Ready Player One could be awesome (thankfully I've read THAT one).

    I'd love to see Illuminae done well.

  4. Industry of movies offers numerous kinds of movies.
    These are particular genres of movies which entertain us.
    They make us laugh, make us cry and sometimes makes us scare also, but in any case we get entertained and feel excitement.
