Some of our all-time favorite fiction and nonfiction reads will be having their debuts as films in the next three months. Here's what to enjoy on the page as well as on the screen.
Catching Fire

Catching Fire

400 pages; Scholastic Press
This November, the latest Hunger Games movie will wow you with its costumes, special effects and Jennifer Lawrence–ness. For the more intimate take on the charismatic Katniss, read—or re-read—the second book of the trilogy for our heroine's more introspective struggles over whether or not to lead the revolution, and for the unforgettable characters, like Bonnie and Twill, who were cut from the film.
