Books are no stranger to getting the Hollywood treatment. Sometimes they are big hits, and other times we wish they had left the novel alone. Hopefully this year will be full of great hits. With so many movies coming out that are based off of some of our favorite books, it’s quite a list, but we’re sure you’ll be able to read all of them before the are released.
