Listen Before You See It

With movie awards season in full swing, I started thinking about all of the soon-to-be movie novels that I need to listen to  before I head to the theaters in 2014. With everything from a slew of young adult selections to hard-hitting biographies set to hit the big screen this year, there is a lot to look forward to!
