AUTHORS DON’T ALWAYS CHOOSE THEIR TITLES.
OFTEN TIMES, A PUBLISHER WILL DISLIKE THE TITLE AN AUTHOR HAS GIVEN THE NOVEL, AND CHANGE IT.
TYPICALLY BECAUSE THE PUBLISHER BELIEVES IT WONT ‘MARKET WELL’.
I had never thought of this until I saw Jennifer Armentrout speaking about it (and got her permission to list the title names), the first four are her ‘almost titles’.

I’m really in love with this list. Jennifer Armentrout has a fan club on Facebook, and I’ve been compiling the suggestions her readers make when in between Armentrout books.
Some movies on this list are actually SELF HELP BOOKS. Wonderful writers, producers, and awesome Hollywood people spin all that awesome advice into a movie- with a plot line! It’s impressive. Not going to lie, I Googled “Books to Movies” and dug around to find the most interesting ones, so i’m just as surprised as you are!

And the amazing perk of Hollywood changing everything up is, you can watch the movie and still happily read the book without it feeling completely spoiled! Here are 10 Candace Reads approved book-to-movies for you!
