Is there anything better than when a great book gets turned into a (hopefully great) movie? How about when you grab the book from your library early before there’s a long holds list? If you want to get a jump on some of the books being turned into movies and TV shows this year, here’s a list to get started with.
Where’d You Go Bernadette by Maria Semple (2012; 330 pages). Also available on audiobook CD, ebook via Overdrive, and downloadable audiobook via Overdrive. This quirky mystery hits the big screen in March 2019.

The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon (2016; 348 pages). Also available on ebook via Overdrive and downloadable audiobook via Overdrive (narrated by Bahni Turpin, one of my favorites!). This teen romance hits screens in May 2019.
