In case you are heading out to the movies this weekend, feel free to put this one on your list. I read it as part of my " review series" this year....reading all of the 2016 books to movies. I got my list here.
I don't even care what books are being made into movies anymore this year. I can't imagine a better one than this. Think Jodi Picoult on steroids. Or think An Affair to Remember in modern times. Or just take my advice and go. (But you have to promise to read the book after you see the movie). Jojo Moyes wrote a bestseller with this one.
And if you're thinking it will be a hard sell to your husband/boyfriend/partner-in-crime, remind him that Emilia Clarke is the female lead. If he's still not convinced, remind him that she plays Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones. You know, the Mother of Dragons. That should help.
