6 Books to Read Before The Movies Come Out

It always seems that some of the best books are released at the end of summer and beginning of fall. I love having something to look forward to, but sometimes a lot of options can stress me out. Hopefully some of y’all agree, so I’ve decided to narrow it down to a select few.

 

This August and September there are quite a few books being adapted into movies and TV shows. Here are the ones you ought to read first before watching them on the screen. You are welcome bookworm.

This adaptation isn’t just one book, it’s a movie mashup of all of the chilling horror stories by Stine for children. A little laughter and lots of scares plus Jack Black will surely make for a hit on September 21st.
