20 Book-Based Movies on Netflix

I’ve done my fair share of binging on Netflix, as I’m sure you all have. During the school year, I don’t allow myself to get away with it as much, but this summer I plan on watching as many movies and old TV series as I can in addition to reading the books I have listed on Goodreads. Recently, my co-blogger Amanda gave me a list of movies based on novels, short stories, memoirs, and other literature currently available to watch on Netflix (I checked).

I like lists. They help me plan and stay on track, and even movies—especially ones based on books—have the potential to teach us something. Just like reading, watching stories play out on screen helps us learn how to be better storytellers. So without further ado, here are just twenty (seriously, guys, Amanda knows how to make some detailed lists) of the literary movies currently available on Netflix:
