Read the book before watching it in 2021

Attention book lovers! If you’re like us, you probably like reading the book BEFORE the movie or TV adaptation hits the big or small screen. While we generally agree that the book is usually better, we’re still fascinated at how books get transformed into something new on screen. It’s fun to watch it come to life with real actors and settings.

There are several books becoming movies or television shows this year. (A few, like Firefly Lane and French Exit, are already streaming.) Here are a few of the ones we’re excited to see:

The Nightingale, by Kristin Hannah

Nine Perfect Strangers, Liane Moriarty

Firefly Lane, Kristin Hannah

French Exit, Patrick DeWitt

Nomadland, by Jessica Bruder

Two Kisses for Maddy, by Matthew Logelin

Marry Me, by Bobby Crosby
