Don't Miss These October Books-to-Films

The cinematic Hollywood adaptation of Sue Monk Kidd's The Secret Life of Bees captures the story of 14 year-old Lily Owens, whose life has been defined by the tragic death of her mother. When she joins Rosaleen, a bold black woman and her "stand-in mother" on a journey to Tiburon, South Carolina, they are taken in by three bee-keeping sisters who show them the true meaning of love and family.

Body of Lies (2007) by David Ignatius has been made into a star-studded espionage/thriller. Emerging from a tour of duty in Iraq with a badly injured leg, CIA soldier Roger Ferris takes on a mission to infiltrate the network of a master terrorist and bases his plan on a British intelligence operation from World War II before finding himself caught in a dangerous web.

There are two more which came out earlier this month. Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist is based on the novel by the same name written by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan. Jeanne DuPrau's City of Ember was also made into a movie and released this month. They are youth and teen fiction, but enjoyable for all ages.
