Read It First: Book to Movie Adaptations (2018+)


New year, new adaptations!
I love keeping up with these because I do prefer to read the book first and this really helps me stay up to date on what is coming out in the future so I can squeeze it onto my TBR.

I did not keep up with my goals last year but I'm hoping I can fit in at least 10 adaptations this year.

Do you read the book before watching the movie adaptation? Know of any upcoming adaptations that aren't on this list? Let me know in the comments!
