This Movie That Book

So we just left spin class and figured before we die we would post this little nugget. Posting this a few days before we wanted too because coincidentally I (Angela) got asked twice today about bookish movie recommendations online.
 
A lot of times when were talking to someone about books they say things like... "Yeah I'll just wait till the movie comes out" or "I don't know, I think it's hard getting into books, maybe if they were more like movies I wouldn't have trouble.". And tons of other reason like that too why they want to read but haven't really gotten into it yet. We've even had people ask what book they should read if they like certain movies. So that gave us the idea to do something new on our blog... Today we give you our first "That book" post. We came up with a list of 25 movies and books that are similar to them. We picked movies from all genres and books that would match them. Some of the movies chosen are movies that came from a book so we decided to give you alternative books for those as well. 

The title of the movie will be listed below the picture and the title of the book and author will be listed below that. If we have posted any reviews on our blog for that book as usual just click the titles and it'll take you straight to the review.
