Book to Movie - It’s Showtime!!

So many of the best movies were books first.  Here is a sample of what’s hitting the theatres in 2014 for your reading --and then viewing pleasure. 

 Look at these choices – there are some solid offerings starting with the best seller The Fault in our Stars by John Green and the classic Lois Lowry novel The Giver.  At Christmastime the younger set will be able to see the wonderful Paddington Bear stories brought to life in Paddington.  

  Young and old fans of the Hunger Games will likely delight in Divergent by Veronica Roth.
Lots of buzz as well for the all star cast in Monuments Men by Robert Edsel , Unbroken by Lauren Hillenbrand ( the author of Seabiscuit ) and the delectable Hundred Foot Journey by Richard Morais.   For fans of the Jennifer Lawrence/Bradley Cooper pairing they are back together in Serena by Ron Rash.  Looking for inspiration? Take in Wild by Cheryl Strayed.   Comedy is guaranteed with Jason Bateman and Tina Fey in This is Where I Leave You by Jonathan Tropper. 

Check out these links below for release dates, summaries and a sneak peek at what’s being planned for next year.  Now, go to our catalogue and place your holds.  It looks like an exciting year.
