Books You Knew Existed Before the Movie Came Out

Edit: Can you please double check the list and see if the book you want is already one there ?People are adding books that are already in the list.

Hundreds of movies come out each year and a good chunk of them are based on books. So usually what happens is that people want to read the books because of the movie. What book did you know existed before the movie came out?



If the movie adaptation has a different title, mention it in the comments.

Therealbadkitty There isn't a Gone movie


message 2: by BookLovingLady (last edited Jun 08, 2013 12:01AM) (new)

BookLovingLady The film To kill a mockingbird was released in 1962. Yet the book is on this list. As the title of this list is "Books You Knew Existed Before the Movie Came Out", it makes me wonder what age the people who voted for this book must be, as they all must have been born (long) before 1962. Either that, or there is a later film version of the book I don't know of, which is always a possibilty of course.


~☆~Autumn♥♥☔ Is there really a movie for The Pillars of the Earth?
