You're probably working on your New Year's resolutions right about now, yes? Well, make a resolution to spend more time with your nose buried in a book, because you're going to have a lot of reading to do. Not only are there tons of books you'll want to get your hands on this coming year, but lots of your favorite reads are getting movie adaptations in 2015, too. And, of course, it's always fun to be that girl who goes to the theater having already read the title — and who can say with confidence, "Yes, the book was much better." (Oh, that smug face looks so good on you.)

This year has been a stellar one for movies — particularly book adaptations — and 2015 is jam-packed with a seriously great roster, as well. There are first installments, sequels, and final chapters. There are true stories, loose interpretations, and outrageously brilliant fictional tales.

Here are 12 the books you should read before the movie adaptations hit the big screen in 2015. Ready your TBR pile:
