You can't go wrong with one of these.
Watching the big-screen adaptation of one of your favorite books can elicit mixed feelings. Even if the movie is great, readers with a strong emotional connection to the source material won't be able to recapture the magic they felt reading the novel, which can leave moviegoers feeling disappointed. There's just something about reading a book you love that can't be translated to the big screen, even if the movie itself is good in its own right. While their film counterparts were perfectly good (we swear!), this is our selection of books that were so moving, so pitch-perfect, so original, they were bound to be turned into movies.
