Which comes first for you--the movie or the book? I always recommend reading the book first. Once you see the movie, it's hard to imagine the characters and settings being DIFFERENT from the movie version. Also, it can be interesting to read the book first and then see how the director chose to add, alter or remove certain aspects from the final film version.
Here are some titles that you might consider...before you watch the movie version.!
