7 Exciting 2019 Movie Releases based on Books
The Art of Racing in the Rain
One of the first books that I read this year was The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein. I don’t know if it is because I have a dog, but the book truly moved me. It broke my heart into a zillion pieces and as I turned each page of the book, I lovingly looked at my Golden boy and wondered if his mind also worked in a similar fashion. Set to release in September 2019, it would be amazing to watch the movie with a dog as the protagonist.
