You may already have your eyes on movies coming out summer of 2022. Did you know that some books turn into movies? There are a few upcoming book adaptations 2022 has to offer, but there are pros and cons to turning books into movies.

Movies that are book adaptations bring characters to life on screen. This representation allows readers to visualize the storyline for themselves.

Even if viewers are not readers of certain books, the films can appeal to moviegoers as a wider audience. The book adaptations 2022 brings also contains special touches by directors that add creativity to the films.

On the other hand, books have many more details that readers can imagine for themselves. Films can be more watered-down than books, so book adaptations may not always hit the mark. It's worth exploring both forms of the story if you like books and movies.

Here are some of the movies coming out summer of 2022 that were originally books:

Read the Book Before the Movie

Reading the book first is a rule of thumb that bookworms stand by. Books contain a lot more detail, nuance, and character development. Films have to leave out important moments and sometimes even entire subplots to save time. Always read the book before you see the movie version of any story.
