Some people believe that it’s much easier to watch the movie version than to read the book. And sometimes, movie-goers have no idea that the film was based from a novel until they hear people talking about whether or not the movie was better than the book.

While it is a lot easier to sit in the movie theater for more or less two hours with your popcorn and soda, some recommend reading the book first. Here are eleven books you need to read before their movies come out. Although you may have already watched a couple on the list, some are still upcoming films so keep your eyes peeled.
