I don’t know about you, but I’m interested to know which books will eventually become movies. It always fascinates me to see who plays who in a movie version of a book that I have enjoyed. The settings, and how they are designed, the clothing, the hairstyles, all pieces that I have “seen” in my mind, but how will these be portrayed?
So far, I am aware of 16 books that have been, or are being made into movies for release in 2014. Let’s see what they are . . .
