Books to Read Before Becoming Movies in 2016

Books and movies - most people love one, if not both, of these pieces. Everyone year Hollywood puts its own spin on a whole bunch of different books - taking them to the big screen. I don't know about you, but I typically prefer the book to the movie. And reading the book before seeing the movie is a must for me. Otherwise, the book isn't as good as it could due to visualizing the movie (actors, set, etc.).

Since I'm one of those people, here are some of those books to tackle before they hit the big screen in 2016. (Please note that all release dates are for USA).
