Book to Movie Adaptations 2019

Each new year more films book-to-movie adaptations are added. And of course we readers are delighted because if possible we want adaptations of all the books. At last they understand that the books are fantastic and our obsession with them. Obviously, the adaptations are not always a hit or the actors are not as we saw them in our minds. But in any case we are grateful because adaptations are the only way to put those words into life living people.
