10 Books Being Turned into Movies in 2017

10 Books Being Turned into Movies in 2017Books sometimes can make the greatest movies. Sometimes not so much (think the Blood and Chocolate movie.) Personally, I *mostly* love movie adaptations. When I read, I can see the story playing out as a movie in my mind. So seeing it on the big screen just makes it even better.

2017 is full of movie adaptations of books. I included all of the ones that sounded interesting to me. There are a few romances that I didn’t include, but that is because I’ve found that most romance book/movies end up being ‘white people almost kissing’ movies. Yes, I am referring to every single movie based on a Nicholas Sparks book.

A couple of these movies are set to be released in 2017… but that is all the information I could find. No movie poster, no solid release date. Only good thing about that is you have more time to read the book before it comes out. I’m really interested in Annihilation. I may actually add that to the top of my ‘to read’ list.
