books I need to read before watching the movie or television series

May 14: Page to Screen Freebie (Books that became movies/TV shows, movies that became books, great adaptations, bad ones, books you need to read before watching their movie/TV show, movies you loved based on books you hated or vice versa, books you want to read because you saw the movie or vice versa, etc.)

When it comes to reading a book or watching a movie, I would do the latter. I am not against people who would like to watch more. But my preferred method is read the book first then watch the movie. Somehow, this is like when a certain manga series is expected to be made into an anime. Some anime adaptations are true to the manga but others are not. Likewise so with book adaptations. I have read a lot of books but I gravitate more to stories which have not been adopted to a series or movie. As for books which have been made into books, I have not read much. So here is a list of books I would like to read before watching the movie or television adaptation.
