This summer there are some major movies coming to theaters that were originally books! Here are a few of them:
Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin – This one is already in theaters! It is about a girl who falls in love with her best friend’s husband-to-be after a one night stand, and the movie stars Kate Hudson, Ginnifer Goodwin, and John Krasinski. Guest blogger Bethany wrote about it just yesterday.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J. K. Rowling – The final part of this saga is finally coming to an end with the epic battle between good and evil. Before the midnight showing of the movie, I might have to flip through a copy of the book again. After all, I have to get my costume just right!
Sarah’s Key by Tatiana de Rosnay – This book club favorite tells the story of a journalist writing about a girl caught up in one of the raids of World War II. The movie will star Kristin Scott Thomas. Ann blogged about this book here.
The Help by Kathryn Stockett – Set in Jackson, Mississippi during the civil rights movement, this bestseller is about a girl fresh out of college who has taken on a writing project about the experiences of African-American maids. The film version boasts an all-star cast, including Emma Stone, Viola Davis, Sissy Spacek, and Allison Janney. Read Ann’s blog about this book here.
If you want to read the book before heading to the theater, stop by the library to see if there’s a copy available!
