Books being made into movies in 2016

For one of my reading challenges this year, I need to read a book that is being turned in to a movie this year. So I searched and found the official list on PopSugar’s website. Here’s the link: Book to Movies 2016. You need to scroll through the pictures at the top. However, I know I’m not going to remember to do that so here is the list. Some movies may not even be the same title as the book and I’m not even sure all of these are coming out this year. If I found the official release date to be in 2015 or 2017 I deleted it from the list. I divided them up into ones with movie release dates and ones without release dates but were listed on the PopSugar website as coming this year. The link of the release date will be a link to movie information, the book title link will be to the book on Goodreads.
