Upcoming 2020 Movies/T.V. based from novels

I have compiled a list of upcoming T.V. and movies that are based on novels. I am a sucker for reading a book literally right before I want to watch the T.V. show or movie. If I watch it before reading the book, I will never read it. So I like to be prepared and just read the books well ahead of the release date(s).

Happy reading, Book nerds!
