Books to Read Before They Hit the Screen in 2015

Books to Movies 2015

Now that we’re in the thick of movie awards season and I’m spending way too much money heading to the theater, my mind has shifted toward some of the books headed for the big (and small!) screen next year. It seems like some of these have been rumored for ages while others will have Hollywood working in high gear in order to be finished so soon. Bring on the excitement and dread!
