What better way to spend a cold winters day then snuggled in bed with a warm blanket, hot cup of tea, and a good book. Especially if that book is a soon to be movie. I also like to read the book before seeing the movie. That way I can imagine the character through the author’s words and not through a camera lens.
Here is a few books to read before you see them on the big screen in 2018!
The Silent Wife by A.S.A. Harrison A chilling psychological thriller about a marriage, a way of life, and how far one woman will go to keep what is rightfully hers. Nicole Kidman will produce and star in the adaptation as the wife. Goodreads Amazon
The Aftermath by Rhidian Brook Hamburg, 1946. Thousands remain displaced in what is now the British Occupied Zone. Charged with overseeing the rebuilding of this devastated city and the de-Nazification of its defeated people, Colonel Lewis Morgan is requisitioned a fine house on the banks of the Elbe, where he will be joined by his grieving wife, Rachael, and only remaining son, Edmund. Jason Clarke is playing the colonel, Keira Knightley is starring as his wife, and Alexander Skarsgard is playing their German host. Goodreads Amazon
Every Day by David Levithan Every day a different body. Every day a different life. Every day in love with the same girl. There’s never any warning about where it will be or who it will be. A has made peace with that, even established guidelines by which to live: Never get too attached. Avoid being noticed. Do not interfere. Angourie Rice plays Rhiannon; Maria Bello and Justice Smith also star. Goodreads Amazon
Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple A compulsively readable and touching novel about misplaced genius and a mother and daughter’s role in an absurd world. Richard Linklater is set to direct the film, and Cate Blanchett has been cast as Bernadette. Kristen Wiig, Billy Crudup, and Judy Greer are also set to star. Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber — the writers behind (500) Days of Summer — are writing the screenplay. Goodreads Amazon
The Black Hand by Stephan Talty The gripping true story of the origins of the mafia in America—and the brilliant Italian-born detective who gave his life to stop it. Leonardo DiCaprio will star in and produce the adaptation. Goodreads Amazon
Fifty Shades Freed by EL James In the final book in the Fifty Shades saga, Christian and Ana navigate their most dangerous, treacherous relationship yet: marriage. Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson fill the shoes of Christian and Ana again, while newcomers like Arielle Kebbel will join the franchise. Goodreads Amazon
