Friday Reads: MTI Edition

Have you already seen (and read!) all the Oscar nominees? Check out these books making the leap to the big and small screens:

ANNIHILATION by Jeff VanderMeer
The first book in VanderMeer’s bestselling Southern Reach trilogy is now one of the most anticipated films of 2018, starring Natalie Portman, Oscar Isaac, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Gina Rodriguez, and Tessa Thompson, directed by Ex Machina‘s Alex Garland.

By turns harrowing and hilarious, St. Aubyn’s omnibus follows Patrick Melrose’s story of abuse, addiction, and recovery in a darkly funny and self-loathing world of privilege. Soon to be a major Showtime miniseries starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Hugo Weaving, Blythe Danner, Allison Williams, and Anna Madeley.

BABYLON BERLIN: Book 1 of the Gereon Rath Mystery Series by Volker Kutscher, translated by Niall Sellar
An international bestseller, BABYLON BERLIN centers on a police inspector caught up in a web of drugs, sex, political intrigue, and murder in Berlin as Germany teeters on the edge of Nazism. Now a TV series airing on Sky.

APPLE TREE YARD by Louise Doughty
Note: this is not a separate TV tie-in edition from the trade paperback; the existing paperback has been repackaged with TV tie-in art
Doughty’s courtroom drama about an affair that takes a dark turn is “a compelling and bravely-written book” (Hilary Mantel) that’s now a TV mini-series starring Emily Watson, running on STARZ.

Happy reading (and watching)!
