It is a truth universally acknowledged that all true literary-lovers should read the book before watching the film. Not to do so is a crime. But sometimes temptation wins out, and your friends are all going to watch the adaption on the opening day and ‘I haven’t read the book yet’ sounds like a poor excuse not to go. It happens. It happens more than I will ever willingly admit. So, here are the 10 films I watched before reading the books. I’ll let you in on an even more shameful secret: I still haven’t read them yet!

  1. The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks
  2. The Devil Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger
  3. The Help by Katherine Stockett
  4. Chocolat by Joanne Harris
  5. Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer
  6. Interview with the Vampire by Anne Rice
  7. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
  8. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
  9. The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
  10. If I Stay by Gayle Forman
