Below is a post from the wonderful reading website Goodreads that I found interesting. It contains the name of books that will be shown on television, steaming, or the big screen in 2018. The list includes some of my favorite books, including Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple; and Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn. And, of course, I have every intention of recording The Alienist by Caleb Carr when it begins showing on TNT on January 22.
Book lovers are about to see a ton of their favorite novels come to theaters and televisions in 2018. And some of the biggest stars will be in on the adaptation action, from Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, and Mindy Kaling starring in A Wrinkle in Time, to Steven Spielberg directing Ready Player One.
This is also your chance to re-read Fahrenheit 451 before it comes to HBO or The Haunting of Hill House before everyone binges the Netflix series. Or catch up on newer beloved novels including Where’d You Go Bernadette, Annihilation and Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda before they become films. We’ve included the release dates (where available), and for the television shows we’ve added the network or platform. The book covers will link you to more information about the adaptations.
