Choose-Your-Own-Adventure Reading Challenge: Movie Adaptations

The 2019 Reading Challenges are here!  Are you struggling with what to read in the Choose-Your-Own-Adventure Reading Challenge categories? We can help! Throughout the year, we will highlight several juvenile, YA, and adult fiction (or non-fiction) books in most of the categories.
These aren’t the only books we have available in each category but are ideas that can help you spark inspiration, help clarify the category, and (hopefully) make your decision easier.


We’re continuing our discussion of books with the category “A book that was adapted into a movie, then watch the movie.”


Each book listed below has a movie adaptation available to check out at the library. Whether you decide to read the book first or watch the movie before reading the book is up to you!
