These 21 books turned movies are hitting the big screen this year

Good news for bibliophiles and movie buffs alike

If you're an avid reader who's also an avid movie-goer, you're going to love this year. 2018 has got not one, not two, but 21 books turning into movies, neither of which can be missed out on. The final instalment of the Fifty Shades trilogy promises to be more nail-biting than all its predecessors. Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele's love story comes to an end with the third film, set to release on February 9. You probably already were a big fan of A Wrinkle In Time by Madeleine L'Engle, but with Oprah Winfrey and Mindy Kaling playing lead roles under the direction of Ava DuVernay, this one's a guaranteed eyeball-grabber. The New York Times bestseller Every Day, written by David Levithan also makes it to the list, expected to release in the US on February 23, just in time for Valentine's Day.

Get ready to mark your calendars* this year as these 21 bestselling books, from love stories to science fiction thrillers, make their way to the big screen.
