“PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES” BY SETH GRAHAME-SMITH (AND JANE AUSTEN, OF COURSE)

A parody of Austen’s famous novel, the story of Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy’s tit-for-tat stays the same, simply add zombies. Just in time for that special date night, the film will premiere February 5, 2016.

“ALLEGIANT” BY VERONICA ROTH

The final book in Roth’s “Divergent” series will be divided into two separate films, à la “Harry Potter.” The novel follows Tris Prior’s daily struggles as she and Tobias plan to look for a better life on the other side of the fence. Part 1 will debut March 18, 2016, while Part 2 — called “Ascendant” — is slated to premiere June 9, 2017.

“ME BEFORE YOU” BY JOJO MOYES

This romance novel places Will Traynor and Louisa Clark together after both suffer a major setback to their lives, thus uprooting them of everything they once knew as normal. Starring Emilia Clarke and Sam Claflin, the movie will premiere June 3, 2016.

“THE BFG” BY ROALD DAHL

The film is slated to premiere September 16, 2016.

“MISS PEREGRINE’S HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN” BY RANSOM RIGGS

“THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN” BY PAULA HAWKINS

Compared with Gillian Flynn’s “Gone Girl,” this novel follows Rachel Watson, an alcoholic who makes up stories about a couple she sees everyday while riding the train. But when Rachel notices something that could be potentially life-threatening, she vows to uncover the truth about the “happy couple” on her daily commute. The film will premiere October 7, 2016.

“A MONSTER CALLS” BY PATRICK NESS

Struggling with his mother’s terminal illness, Conor suffers nightmares constantly. One evening, he’s greeted by a monster who wishes to share stories with him, as long as Conor shares one of his own stories — nay, secrets — too. The film, starring Liam Neeson as the monster, is slated to release October 14, 2016.

I could remember when but I read the whole twilight saga before all the movies came out. I read maximum ride before the movie came out. I also read the immortal instruments before the movie came out.

I was a huge John Green fan due to Vlogbrothers but I'd never actually read any of his books so when he began talking about the release of The Fault in Our Stars I pre-ordered it from the library and read it two days after it came out - haven't even seen the film, the book made me cry enough thank you.
