    Now more than ever, Hollywood studios are snapping up the movie rights to our favourite novels - sometimes before the books are even written. Our three-book Blockbuster Fiction Collection is a compelling set of novels that have been brought to life on the big screen.

    Philomena, now an Oscar- and BAFTA-nominated motion picture starring Judi Dench and Steve Coogan, tells the true story of Philomena Lee and the son she had to give away. Both having to deal with the forces of hypocrisy and secrets, Philomena is a deeply moving tale.

    An international bestseller in its own right, The Lovely Bones was adapted for the big screen by Lord of the Rings and King Kong director Peter Jackson. With the film starring Mark Wahlberg and Rachel Weisz as the parents of Susie Salmon, a young girl who is watching them from heaven following her murder, The Lovely Bones is an astonishingly poignant novel about life and death, forgiveness, vengeance and memory.

    Starring Bradley Cooper, Robert De Niro and Chris Tucker, and featuring an Oscar-winning performance from The Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence, David O. Russell's (director of The Fighter, Three Kings and American Hustle) adaptation of The Silver Linings Playbook has garnered many a positive review from critics. A delightful debut novel from the author of The Good Luck of Right Now, Matthew Quick, the book tells the story of Pat, a man with bipolar disorder who is trying to get his life back on track after a stint in a psychiatric hospital.

    If you were to look at Dexter Morgan, you'd think he is like any other man. But he's not every other man; he has a dark secret hobby... he's a serial killer! And, so far, he's killed 36 people and never been caught, thanks to his expertise in hiding evidence - working for the Miami Police has its perks.

    In Darkly Dreaming Dexter, our 'hero' finds his very organised life disrupted when another killer with a very similar style to his own appears in Miami. But Dexter soon realises that this mysterious killer isn't just invading his turf, he's asking him to come out and play...

    Dearly Devoted Dexter sees Miami's best-dressed killer back in action, working with his work nemesis Sgt. Doakes to bring down a sadistic torturer. And if that isn't scary enough, things are getting serious with his girlfriend, Rita. And in Dexter In the Dark, Rita and Dexter are planning their wedding, but a sinister character, Death, is stalking him - how will he survive?

    An ideal collection of crime fiction titles for fans of the award-winning show (which stars Six Feet Under's Michael C. Hall as the titular character) or those yet to be introduced to the works of Jeff Lindsay and Dexter's 'Dark Passenger', the original perspective, self-deprecating humour and stunning pace of this series is what has makes the Dexter books so thrilling.
