It seems, (in this editor’s opinion anyway), that there are a lot of really great books being made into films. We see it everywhere– Walking Dead (based on the Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore, and Charlie Adlard comic), Game of Thrones, (based on George R.R. Martin’s ‘A Song of Ice and Fire‘ series) and certainly in films like The Help, The Lord of the Rings, A Winter’s Tale and the Harry Potter franchise. If reality t.v. is any indication, it seems filmmakers are ducking into bookstores to find great stories to immortalize onto the big and small screens.
So what is a book nerd to do? What can we expect? The following is a small list of the films launching this spring and summer that come directly from some of our favorites books.
