From Book To Movie News!

So this year there are A LOT of books that are being made into a movie. I guess they run out of the ideas to write a script on....well I don't complain. I love watching books to movies adaptations, and yell at the screen about how the characters not following the book. 

But so far the movies that have been already released did not really disappoint me.
