I’m one of those people that like to read the books before I see the movies. I’d like to say that 80% percent of the time I do that. I feel like seeing the movie spoils the book, y’know? Here I have listed 6 books that have been adapted into films that will be released in 2016 (most of them in later part). I know there are many more coming out but these 6 here are my most anticipated!

The next day, she wakes up with a horrible hangover, various wounds and bruises, and no memory of the night before. She has only a feeling: something bad happened.

What book do you need to read before the film? Which one is your favourite book? Which one are you most excited for?
I had the Light Between Oceans on my TBR and it just kind of got away from me. I had no idea it was going to be a movie. I hope to get to read it before the movie comes out. Especially ME Before You!
Great list!! I'm really excited to see some of these movies!
I'm excited for The Light Between Oceans because Michael Fassbender is in it and Alicia Vikander just won an Oscar! We've got 8 months to read it before it comes out!
