5 Books You Should Read Before They Become Movies In 2019

Book lovers in the house be ready to see some of your favorite books in the cinema this year. I believe that some of the biggest movies this year would be adapted from some popular novels, classic works of non-fiction and online fanfiction. Before these books hit the movies, here are 5 books you should read.

1. All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven

Synopsis: Two teens, Theodore Finch and Violet Markey, find themselves thrown together after they both plan to jump off the school bell tower at the same time. Drawn together in this intimate way, they start to help each other heal—but it’s not easy going. This is another book that will require a box of tissues on hand.

2. Little Women by Louisa May Alcott

Synopsis: Four very different sisters are raised by their mother in Massachusetts as they come into womanhood and find their way in the world. The March sisters have become classic characters, appearing in several film and TV adaptations, but this forthcoming movie by Greta Gerwig is sure to capture the novel’s poignancy and wit.

3. The Good Liar by Nicholas Searle

Synopsis: An elderly English con man named Roy decides to steal the life savings of a woman named Betty, who may or may not be as innocent as she seems. The novel moves backwards in time, revealing new facets of Roy’s life throughout the chapters, all leading to a surprising conclusion. The upcoming film, directed by Bill Condon, has shifted some of the action, so the book won’t be a total spoiler.

 

4. The Woman in the Window by A.J. Finn

Synopsis: Anna is an agoraphobe in New York who spends her time watching her new neighbors through her windows. When she witnesses something she wasn’t supposed to see, she has to figure out what’s real and how to deal with it.

5. The Sun Is Also a Starby Nicola Yoon

Synopsis: Yoon is also the author of Everything, Everything, and this YA novel follows a similar storyline of a young couple whose romance may be doomed. It alternates between the perspectives of its two main characters, Natasha and Daniel, who fall in love in NYC right before Natasha’s family is set to be deported. The themes are poignant, especially in today’s political climate.
