Good Books - That Is, Until The Movies Come Out

Posted: Updated:

Summer is a great time to get caught up on a good book, and those books often though better than the movies they eventually get turned into. Take for example 1995's ‘Scarlet Letter'. Critics said there was nothing inspired about the movie. It was a great American novel. It had a great cast, but the movie bombed.

Five books headed to Hollywood:

  1. Divergent by Veronica Roth. Is the first installment in a trilogy. Think of it as the next ‘Hunger Games' and this one starring Kate Winslet is out next year.
  2. Ender's Game is a military science fiction novel by Orson Scott Card this one opens in November with Harrison Ford.

  3. The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones by Cassandra Clare is about a girl who discovers she has a supernatural bloodline. It's a long one, coming out august starring Lily Collins.

  4. The Fault In Our Stars from John Green is about a terminally ill girl who falls in love. It's been optioned, and Shailene Woodley should be in this one.

  5. The Wolf Of Wall Street a memoir by Jordan Belfort. Martin Scorsese directs this one starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Matthew McConaughey. It's coming out in November.
