Well, people. I’ve made it through a few of the books listed on BuzzFeed’s 19 Books to Read Before the Movies Come Out in 2018. Most were so so good and I’ve enjoyed the film adaptations I’ve seen so far. Although I didn’t review them, I read The Hate U Give, Crazy Rich Asians, and Fifty Shades Freed long before BuzzFeed’s list was published. I enjoyed all three books (yes, even Fifty Shades Freed).
The last book I plan to read in my one-woman book challenge is The Black Hand by Stephan Talty, which was adapted for the screen and will star my future ex-husband, Leonardo DiCaprio. The novel is the true story about an NYPD copy nicknamed “The Italian Sherlock Holmes” who goes after the Mob. I’m looking forward to closing out the challenge with a book Leo thought was good enough to star in.
I’m really looking forward to seeing the list for 2019, should one be published and will challenge myself to read and review each book listed. Let me know if you’ve read any of the books on the list that I didn’t get to you and tell me what you thought of them in the comments.
