5 Books You Should Read Before the Movie Comes Out


Welcome to Day 3 of 24 Days of Shelves of Spines!

I love to read books before the movies come out. I like to see how the directors and actors and everyone else involved turn books to life. I picked 5 movies that are coming out in 2017 that I am interested in seeing and hoping to add these books to my TBR in the new year.
