Fall is here, and that means the movies are going to get good again and we can cleanse our palates of "Suicide Squad."

As you might expect, a lot of the big movies coming out are based on popular, acclaimed, and award-winning books. And while you don't always have to read the book before watching the movie, some of these novels, nonfiction books, comics, and short stories are excellent. They're all worth checking out.

Here are the book-to-movie adaptations coming out this fall. We included the release dates for each movie, so you know how much time you have left to read the books.
