6 Books That Will Be Coming To Our Screens Soon!

From The Summer I Turned Pretty to The School of Good and Evil, we are so excited to see our favorite books and series being adapted into movies and tv shows.

From the Hunger Games movies to the Shadow and Bone Netflix series, we have seen our favorite characters translated onto our big and small screens. There are now so many more books and series that are in production currently for their own movies and shows, and we’ve rounded up the 6 that we are most excited for.

The Summer I Turned Pretty

This series by Jenny Han follows Isabel “Belly” Conklin, who spends her summers at Cousin’s Beach with her mother and older brother, as well as with her mother’s best friend and her sons. The television series is currently in production, with newcomer Lola Tung as Belly, and is set to release on Amazon this summer.


The Uglies trilogy, written by Scott Westerfeld, tells the story of teenager Tally Youngblood who rebels against society’s enforced conformity, after her friends reveal the downsides to becoming a “Pretty.” The Netflix movie adaptation starring Joey King wrapped its filming in December of 2021, but a release date has yet to be announced.
