Which is better, the book or the movie? I suppose it depends on who you ask. Personally, I like the feeling of a book in my hand but I’m not terribly opposed to sitting at home all day and binge-watching good movies. Word has it that there are quite a few books being made into movies this year. If you’re anything like me the hardest part is waiting for movies to show up on the big screen. If this is the case for you, why not check out one of these five books that are being made into movies in 2019?

Chapter Two of this movie is set to come out in September 2019 but I recommend watching Chapter One first, and of course, reading the entire book beforehand!
