Books on Screen

Each month, our Books on Screen feature spotlights movies, television shows, miniseries and specials that are based on books of various genres --- including novels, memoirs, comics, children's books, short stories and poetry --- along with the latest DVD releases.

March 2017

March's Books on Screen roundup includes the feature films Before I Fall, Beauty and the Beast, The Boss Baby, and Ghost in the Shell; the series premiere of "13 Reasons Why," along with the currently airing shows "The Flash" and "Arrow"; and the DVD releases of Jurassic World and A Monster Calls.

January 2017

Happy New Year, Teenreaders! In honor of the new year, we have compiled a list of new book-to-film adaptations to help you celebrate the start of 2017. In New York, we have already had one snow storm and we knew exactly how to spend it --- watching everything on our Books on Screen list. So start heating up the hot chocolate and get the marshmallows ready!

December 2016

Oh baby, it's cold outside! Here at Teenreads, we know that you need some great movies to keep the chill at bay, especially over the upcoming winter break. Whether you feel like hitting the theaters or staying in bed with the remote, December has quite a few good options for any book nerd or movie fanatic. If you're a last-minute holiday shopper (like us), there are also some great DVDs releasing this month which will make wonderful stocking stuffers or gifts for friends and family. Or treat yourself and get one as a present for YOU!

November 2016

It is officially November and the weather is getting colder and colder with every week, which means it is also officially comfy sweater and warm drinks season. If you and your friends are in need of some shows or movies to cozy up with, our Books on Screen list is here to save the day! With Thanksgiving break right around the corner, we have an excellent selection of entertainment to choose from on your days off from school. 

October 2016

October has finally arrived and things are starting to cool down. With this new weather comes some cool new T.V. shows and movies to keep on your list that are as sweet and addicting as the candy you get at Halloween. 

September 2016

September is upon us and all of you are officially back in school, which means you're all contemplating what movies to go see with your friends on your precious Friday nights and weekends. If you ask us, the movie theater is the place to be. But if you would rather spend your weekend binge-watching a show on Netflix or popping in a DVD --- in between homework and reading, of course --- we totally understand and have some recommendations for you there, as well. 

August 2016

August is here and the end of summer is drawing nigh! But although summer might be ending, that doesn’t mean it’s any less hot --- in fact, these past few weeks have been sweatier than ever. With that in mind, closing off your summer with a fun trip to the cool movie theatre might be the best way to go! And with school starting up again, either now or in a few weeks, there’s less and less time to go and see these fun, book-based flicks.

July 2016

July is finally upon us, which means school is definitely out for all teens and now you have more free time to do what you want. We know you're probably outside reading, eating BBQ and basking in the summer sun, but if you need an escape from the heat, the movie theater is always the way to go. Bring on the air-conditioning and salty snacks!

June 2016

Whether you're relaxing by the pool or sweating it out on the beach this summer, a trip to the movies is always a great way to cool down during this season's scorching months. If you're looking for a nice way to break up your days, make sure to check out these popular book-to-screen adaptions!

In theatres we have this summer's most talked about love story, Me Before You, starring Emilia Clarke and Sam Claflin. Will the film outshine the heart-warming, best-selling novel? Go get your tickets today to find out! Next up we have The Fundamentals of Caring, the funny and insightful story of an 18-year-old with muscular dystrophy and the hapless caregiver who takes him on a cross-country roadtrip. Along the way, the pair discovers the true meaning of friendship and what it means to be alive.

May 2016

May is finally here, which means summer is just around the corner! Why not take a break in between switching out your winter wardrobe and finalizing your summer plans with an exciting new book-to-screen adaptation?

First up we have Captain America: Civil War, the third movie about America's most patriotic superhero, which releases on May 6th. For all of you ALICE IN WONDERLAND fans out there, May 24th brings Alice Through the Looking Glass, yet another version of the trippy tale starring Johnny Depp and Anne Hathaway. In this follow-up to the 2010 hit, Alice in Wonderland, Alice finds herself in the chamber of the Grand Clock and is forced to return the past of her friends --- and dangerous enemies.
