2012 Books to Movies for Teens

A new year means lots of books are coming to a theater near you!  I included any book with teen interest, not just those that were published for young adults, so there is something for everyone.  (I only add titles with firm release dates. Let me know if I missed any!)  I can't vouch for their quality, but look for these movies through the year and make your own judgments:


January 20:  Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close (book by Jonathan Safran Foer)
February 17: The Secret World of Arrietty (The Borrowers by Mary Norton)
March 2:  Dr. Seuss' The Lorax (book by Dr. Seuss)
March 23:  The Hunger Games (book by Suzanne Collins)
June 22:  Abraham Lincoln:  Vampire Hunter (book by Seth Grahame-Smith)
August 3:  The Bourne Legacy (book by Eric Van Lustbader)
August 3:  Diary of a Wimpy Kid:  Dog Days (book by Jeff Kinney)
November 16:  The Twilight Saga:  Breaking Dawn--Part 2 (book by Stephenie Meyer)
December 14:  The Hobbit:  An Unexpected Journey (book by J. R. R. Tolkien)
December 21:  The Life of Pi (book by Yann Martel)
December 21:  World War Z (book by Max Brooks)
