8 Books Becoming Movies in 2019: Read It Before You See It

There’s something magical about seeing your favorite movie come to life on the big screen. Suddenly, the characters you love have a tangible physical representation (though not always how you imagined them).

The film industry, ever hungry for new material, loves to plumb the depths of the literary aisle for movie ideas. Movies based on books can be a tricky thing. Book lovers love hearing a beloved book is becoming a movie, but they can be so attached to their story that any change feels like heresy.

As with anything in life, we’re sure that some movies based on books in 2019 will be spectacular and some will fall flat.

If you are like us and always want to read the book first, here are 8 books becoming movies in the next few months. From YA to romantic comedy to horror, Hollywood has selected some great choices for book-to-movie adaptations this year.

1. Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple

August 9th – Sometimes you just need a clever satire, and I promise you’ll laugh at the ridiculous Bernadette, a Seattle-area mom who takes antisocial to a whole new level.

When he decides to kidnap a fairy in order to steal her magic, the very organized and high-tech magical kingdom must fight to get her back and keep their secret safe from the human race. Read more.

3. Three Seconds by Anders Roslund and Börge Hellström

August 16th – Are you ready for more movies based on books by Swedish authors? Following in the success of Stieg Larsson’s Millennium Series, we have a thrilling new story from Anders Roslund and Börge Hellström. After years spent infiltrating the Polish mafia, police officer Piet Hoffman goes undercover as a Swedish prisoner to unravel an amphetamine distribution ring. After a botched drug deal places Hoffman too close to a murder, his cover is at risk when a driven detective inspector takes the case. Titled The Informer, the movie hits theaters in August.
