Book to Screen in 2018

While it seems there has always been a lot of books being adapted to movies and television shows, 2018 just feels extra full of 'em. We'll leave it up to you to decide whether you're excited or apprehensive about these. Here's a (by no means comprehensive) list:

The Long and the Short of it

In the past couple weeks we saw some big-time book award lists announced. The National Book Award released their 2017 Longlist, and the Man Booker Prize finally announced their shortlist finalists. (You may remember seeing their longlist from a couple months ago.)

Some of the selections are Bookloft Staff Picks! (We're obviously rooting for those to win.)
