books to read before they're made into movies in 2014

I came across this list of books to read before they're made into movies in 2014. What a cool list! Check out this list, too. I had mentioned that I don't like to watch a movie based on a book before I've read the book. I like to analyze the movie based on how I first perceived the characters, settings, themes, etc. Plus, I like to ruin the ending for those watching it with me. 

Anyway, back to that list. I think it would be fun to read some of the ones I'm interested in before I watch the movie. 

These are the ones I want to read:
*The Fault in Our Stars by John Green (I actually just finished reading this one!)
*This is Where I Leave You by Jonathan Tropper (Jason Bateman will star in this movie. That's what sold me. He's hilarious).
*Serena by Ron Rash 
*The Giver by Lois Lowry (I'm looking forward to this one. I read it in middle school, but I'm rereading it before the movie is released).
*Wild by Cheryl Strayed (This is a memoir about a woman who takes a long hike alone after losing her mom and her marriage).
*Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins (Reading this one means I have to read the The Hunger Games and Catching Fire first).

Check out that list for better descriptions, and to make your list of must-reads.
