16 Books To Read Before They Hit Theaters This Year

 

Arielle Calderon over at BuzzFeed has posted a cool list of “books into movies” scheduled for release this year. I’ve read two of the books on her list: Unbroken, Gone Girl and I am reading The Monuments Men. Calderone has them listen in order of release date.

1. Labor Day by Joyce Maynard

What it’s about: Over the course of a Labor Day weekend in the late ’80s, 13-year-old Henry and his depressed mother Adele’s lives change when they harbor fugitive Frank Chambers at home. Frank fills a fatherless void for Henry and brings out life in Adele, all while the police are on the hunt for the escaped murderer. It’s a deeply moving read with unpredictable twists, and Kate Winslet is bound to shine as Adele in the film.

Amazon review: 4.2/5 stars

Release date: Jan. 31, 2014

Starring: Kate Winslet, Josh Brolin
