7 Great Books Based on Movies That You Should Read This Summer ...


It’s not a secret that there are movies based off of books, but it’s not as well known that there are books based on movies.

Most of the books that are based on movies are just novelizations of the movies themselves, but there are also some books that are a continuation of the stories told in films.2

Let’s check out seven books based on movies.

1. Star Wars

It’s a well-known fact that the Star Wars movies are based off books by the same name.2

The movies were so insanely popular that years later, more movies came out as prequels, but that’s not all that these Star Wars movies have inspired.

There is also a slew of books available to fans that continue and add on to different stories linked to the movies.

Any fan of the original books or movies would probably enjoy the books, although a lot of them are made for children.

Still, they're some of the most famous books based on movies.

2. It’s a Wonderful Life

Wonderful Life: The Burgess Shale and the Nature of History is a book unlike the others that you will find on this list.

This book is a book based off of the movie It’s a Wonderful Life that doesn’t continue or add on to the story.2

It isn’t a novelization either;

this is a completely original book.

This is a book that says that if we were to view the same life multiple times, each time would be different.

The book gets some of these ideas from the story of George Bailey disappearing from Bedford Falls in the movie.

3. The Terminator

The Terminator movies, like Star Wars, are movies that are based off of books.

These movies also have novelizations of the movies themselves.

On top of the novelizations, the movies have also spurred original novels as well as comic books.

There was also a TV show that piggy backed on the movies' success, but that’s a story for another time.
