Do you get that jittery feeling when you learn that a book you love is set to become a movie? How is Hollywood going to ruin the book? Will it be anything like what you imagined while you were reading? We have to remind ourselves to have a little faith in the intelligence of the screenwriters adapting the book and the actors and director shaping it into a film that retains at least some kernel of the magic the book contains. We have high hopes for the adaptions of the books on this week’s list, all set to become movies soon (and yes, we know that Nicholas Spark’s The Best of Me will be in theaters on Friday but we recommend you spend some time reading these books before they become movies rather than watching that movie).
