Books to Read Before They Hit the Screen in 2016

hit the screen in 2016 square

Just like last year, it’s time for a preview of all the books we’ll see destroyed by films this year. I’m just kidding, you guys, I’m sure some of them will be decent adaptations. We did get Wolf Hall, after all. But since we’re still waiting on several movies that were supposed to grace us in 2015 (I’m looking at you, Americanah), cross your fingers and take these with a grain of salt. Add some additional hope for The Wife because I can’t believe it’s actually happening.
