Archive - Books on Screen

August 2014

Even with summer drawing to a close there's still time to check out the latest book adaptations hitting the big screen. August is a big month for YA adaptations with two beloved titles hitting the screens mid-month. First is the long-awaited The Giver, based on Lois Lowry's dystopian classic of the same name. Then comes If I Stay, inspired by Gayle Forman's moving novel about a young girl's choice between life and death --- you'll definitely want to bring a pack of tissues to this one!

If you'd rather spend a night at home after a long day of summer fun, there are a few DVDs coming to stores this month that you'll definitely want to check out. Whether you pick up Divergent or The Amazing Spiderman 2, you won't be lacking for excitement. Don't forget the popcorn!
