Books You Should Read Before Watching the Film!

by |December 3, 2013

Sometimes we forget that our favourite films (think Breakfast at Tiffany’s or Jaws) are based on books, simply because the films are so good.

At Booktopia, we never want that to happen to you, so we’ve compiled a list of all of the incredible novels making their way onto the screen soon.

We recommend that you check out the books before watching the films. Remember that time you watched Harry Potter before reading the series and Emma Watson was already Hermione Granger in your head?

Yeah, we thought so. Never again…
