Here we are...our third year! Welcome to any newcomers and welcome back to former participants!

I have found quite a list of books which have been made into movies and are coming out in 2019. I'm sure there could be more. If you notice I'm missing any on the list, leave me a comment and I'll add it to the list.

Deborah Harkness's A Discovery of Witches has been made into a series, I believe in the UK, but I have the streaming horror service, Shudder and according to them, it will be available there on January 19. Squee!

Again, if you find out about any I haven't mentioned, leave me a comment and I'll add to the list.

There are multiple levels for this challenge:

Level 1a: read 1-3 books
Level 1b: read 4+ books

Read only books being made into movies for release in 2019 (you are not required to only read from the list above. As I stated, if you find another movie or TV series/mini-series based on a book coming out in 2019, feel free to read it).

Level 2a: 1-3 books from 2019 movie releases, 1-3 books from books made into movies from previous years
Level 2b: 4+ books from 2019 movie releases, 4+ books from books made into movies from previous years

Here's a list of 2018 movies adapted from books. (Note: Some of the movies listed may have been moved to 2019).
You can also Google for previous years, or check Goodreads lists.

Level 3a: read 1-3 books from any release year, watch 1-3 movies from any release year
Level 3b: read 4+ books from any release year, watch 4+ movies from any release year

Note: Movies watched must be the movie adaptation of the book(s) you read.
  • The books you read can count for other challenges. Ebooks, audiobooks, and traditional formats all count.
  • The start date is January 1, 2019 so any book you started between the first of January, and now, counts. End date is December 31, 2019.
  • Remember, TV series/mini-series count too.
