I loved doing this challenge last year, so I thought I would repeat it this year.  Plus I am increasing my goal to 20 books to movies for this year.  For purposes of variety, I will not be including the Harry Potter movies even though I will be reading the novels and watching the movies.  I am going to try and seek out movie versions that I haven’t seen…  Tentative TBR:

  1. Water for Elephants — Sara Gruen (2007)
  2. Something Borrowed — Emily Giffin (Adventures of Darcy #1) (2005)
  3. P.S. I Love You — Cecelia Ahern (2008)
  4. The Hunger Games — Suzanne Collins (The Hunger Games #1) (2009)
  5. TBD
  6. TBD
