And a little quick googling will bestow many hits upon thee if you’re searching for what book-to-movie might just be the next Hunger Games. Here are just a few promising adaptations still in early stages of production giving you plenty of time to catch the book first - if you haven't already read them!

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!

What book turned movie are you most excited to see this year?

 

What's After HBO?

The HBO series, Boardwalk Empire is insanly popular, and the the season finale is just a few weeks away (Sunday, December 5th).  Realizing that many of you will soon need something to do with that extra free time I have created a list of items that you might enjoy.
