* indicates a book that has been or is being, adapted for the screen. And yes, I know, most of the books I plan on reading are upcoming movies or films already. What can I say? It's what I love. BUT if you have a great book to recommend - even if it's NOT pre-destined for the screen, I'd love your suggestions!
