This post is especially dedicated to my not so book-loving-but-movie-loving friends. I’m concluding a list below of books that are turning into movies this year. I want you to read them before you watch them. Every year many of the movies that I watch and like are surprisingly based on books. I always like the idea of reading a book that is soon turning into a movie. After reading the book, when the movie comes out, I compare the visualisation shown in the movie with my imaginary visualisation of that book.

I read this mesmerising book last year and I cannot express how I excited I am to see an adaption so early.
A young woman named Bathsheba Everdene has to deal with the difficult, sometimes tragic consequences of being in relationships with three different suitors at the same time. Starring Carey Mulligan.
Release Date: June 19
Release Date: Sept. 18
I haven’t read this one, but I have certainly added it to my TBR list as it sounds highly interesting to me. he true crime novel follows the infamous mobster Whitey Bulger, the head of the Irish mob in the ’70s, and his relationship with childhood friend John Connolly, who grew up to work for the FBI. Starring Johnny Depp, Joel Edgerton, Benedict Cumberbatch, Kevin Bacon. Hmm… Reason to see the movie is to see how well that combination works out.
The Light Between Oceans
Release Date: Nov. 25
A lighthouse keeper and his wife discover a baby and a dead body near their home off the coast of Australia after WWI. Starring Michael Fassbender.
Release Date: Nov. 25
I am definitely going to watch this one because when I read this book it was such a wonderful thing to read. Andy Weir did a great job with the book, and now I hope Ridley Scott does a great job too with the movie.
PS: Matt Damon plays Mark Watney on the screen.
Well there are so many of them such that I have decided to divide this post into parts. Stay tuned, and look out for the next post “Books betiding into Movies in 2015- Part 2”.
