Books into Movies

Lately, there have been a slew of books being made into movies. Toping our hold lists right now are such titles as The lightning thief / Rick Riordan. ; Push : a novel / by Sapphire. ; The time traveler's wife : a novel / by Audrey Niffenegger. ; and Diary of a wimpy kid : Greg Heffley's journal / by Jeff Kinney.


Once books are made into movies, we often see a huge jump in popularity. Be ahead of the curve and check out these books, all soon to be upcoming movies.


Beastly / Alex Flinn. A modern retelling of "Beauty and the Beast" from the point of view of the Beast, a vain Manhattan private school student who is turned into a monster and must find true love before he can return to his human form.



Italy, or, "Say it like you eat it," or, 36 tales about the pursuit of pleasure -- India, or, "Congratulations to meet you," or, 36 tales about the pursuit of devotion -- Indonesia, or, "Even in my underpants, I feel different," or, 36 tales about the pursuit of balance.


Youth in revolt : the journals of Nick Twisp / C. D. Payne. Cynical and sex-obsessed teen Nick Twisp documents in his journal his ongoing struggles to make sense out of high school, his divorced parents, and an enduring love for an intelligent girl before his frustrations escalate to an open revolt.
