The weather is warming up and spring and Easter break are around the corner. This means trips to tropical and warm destinations and time spent relaxing by the pool. To me, this means reading season! Today I am sharing a list of books that are being turned into movies this year. These are my favorite types of reads. I love comparing the book to the movie and seeing how my mental picture differs or aligns on the big screen.
The Zookeeper’s Wife by Diane Ackerman
