A List of Books You Need To Read Before They Come Out On The Silver Screen

Ok, so a lot of really good books are about to get made into movies. So I'm here to make a list of them for you to know what they are so  that you can read them before you see it. :)

1. The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. Cassandra Clare
In Modern day New York, Fifteen year old Clary discovers a secret world coexisting with our own.
I have read this book and I absolutely loved it!! It's a little Violent at times, and aside from a few kisses not to terribly intimate, I rate it PG-13. the Movie is Rated PG-13.
2. Divergent. Veronica Roth
 In Dystopian Chicago, Beatrice Prior mus make a choice that will define the rest of her life.
I really loved this book, It is, again, a little violent at times, and there are a few Passionate scenes, but it's still an amazing book. I rate it PG-13. This film is not yet rated.(most likely PG-13)
3. Beautiful Creature. Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
Not much happens in Gatlin, a small town in South Carolina. Ethan is waiting for the day when He can finally leave. Until he meets the new girl who in not what she seems.
I read this book, and it is very good, It's a little dark, with lots of magic and romance. There is some violence in it. I rate it PG-13.  This film is not yet rated. (probably PG-13)
4. The Hobbit. J.R. Tolken
Bilbo Bagins gets caught up in a very unexpected adventure. 
I read it, but didn't really like it. I found it to be rather dull, but Other people might like it, so go ahead and read it. I do want to see the movie though. I rate the book PG. Movie is Rated PG-13.
5. Matched, Allie Condie
Cassia is very excited for her Matching Banquet. This is the Day when she finds out who she will be married to. Every thing is going great. Until she falls in love with the wrong person.
This is one of my favorite Books. Matched is such a beautiful story of a girl who tastes freedom, and can't get enough.I have actually done a full review on this book if you want to go look for it. I rate the book PG. This film is not yet rated.  
6. Delirium, Lauren Oliver
Lena is counting down the days to her birthday. That's when she will be cured. when she will be safe. safe from what? The horrible illness, Delirum Nervousa. Love.
This book was pretty good. Not as good as some of the other books I have read but still pretty good. It's not to terribly violent, and not terribly passionate. It reminded me a bit of Matched except with out the poems. I rate it PG. This film is not yet rated.
7. Maximum Ride, The Angel Experiment. James Patterson.
Max and her flock aren't Human. They are 98% human. The other two percent is bird, And it makes a big difference. Love the Maximum Ride saris, until I got up to about the sixth book. and it all went down hill from there. But the Angel experiment is very good. it's a kind of Violent, but thats about it. I rate it PG-13. This film is not yet rated.
8. The Hunger Games:  Catching Fire. Suzanne Collins
The continued story of Katniss and her friends and family as they try to survive life in Panem and deal with what happened in the arena. I enjoyed it, it was pretty good, but the first one was better. I would recommend reading the first book, before you read the second one. It's violent, and there's a bit of kissing and drinking I rate it PG-13. This film is not yet Rated. (definitly PG-13)

Now on to the books that I haven't read, but plan to or am slightly scared to, read before they come out as movies 
1. The Host. (Alien parasites take over earth) Stephanie Myers
2. Warm Bodies (Zombies who fall in love) Issac Marion
3. 13 Reasons Why. (a young girl gives thirteen reasons for her suicide) Jay Asher
4. Les Miserables. (The french revolution) Victor Hugo
5. The Forest of Hands and Teeth. (zombies) Carrie Ryan
6. If I Stay (A girl is in a fatal car accident) Gayle Forman
7. Shiver. (Werewolves who fall in love) Maggie Stievater
8. Uglies (a society where everyone gets Plastic surgery to become Preties) Scott Westerfeild

And that is the conclusion of my list. I hope you find something to read! Bye! Bri π
