Books I Didn't Realize Were Movies
Before I Die by Jenny Downham is a book that my sister really liked and which I hope to read soon. It sounds like the perfect story for me. However, I only learned around December that Before I Die is a movie. I came across the movie at the library I work at and decided to purchase the DVD for my sister for Christmas.
It's called Now is Good and stars Jeremy Irvine and Dakota Fanning. As I write this I haven't watched my sister's copy yet, but I hope I can read the book soon and then watch the film adaptation.
The other book that I didn't realize had been made into a movie was Someday This Pain Will Be Useful to You by Peter Cameron. The movie has the same name and stars Marcia Gay Harden and Lucy Liu.
I haven't read this book yet either, but it's one that I've been aware of for awhile and I do hope to get the chance. I'm curious about the film too. I don't mind when things change between book and movie. They are separate entities for me.
Anyway, these were two books I'd known about and yet never realized they made into movies until the DVD was out. Are there any other books you weren't aware became movies for awhile?
