    Literally five out of the six shown are on my must see lay, one of which I already have (THE DEATH CURE…so good!). Sad part, I confess I haven’t read any of these as of yet except for THE HOUSE WITH A CLOCK IN ITS WALLS…but they are on my wish/to read list. 🙂

      I want to see all of them! I’ve only read The Death Cure and A Wrinkle in Time, but I’m reading Ready Player One right now. I haven’t seen any of the movies yet. 😢
