14 Books That Were Based on Awesome AF Movies
Nothing is better than finding out that your favorite book is getting the big screen treatment. More than ever before, books are being transformed into blockbuster hits that make the novels even more popular. From huge franchises like The Hunger Games to single tearjerkers like The Fault in Our Stars, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to find a movie that isn’t based on a novel. But what about the books that come after the flicks?
A lot of movies and TV shows are based off books, but books based off movies are far more rare. A movie has to be massively successful to warrant a book deal and have a huge fanbase, and surprisingly there have been quite a few to reach that status. We rounded up some of the biggest franchises that found even more fame post-movie. Check out our gallery to see who made the cut:
High School Musical: The Junior Novel
It's no secret that everyone fell in love with the Wildcats after the insanely successful High School Musical movie on Disney Channel. The book series was released the same year and was a re-telling of the story that we came to love. A new novelization was released for each new movie, and a new book series, Stories of East High, was released to give readers a closer look at some of their favorite characters. This book went on to be named a New York Times best-seller and remained there for 16 weeks!
