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, it's 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.

All original, telling and transfixing, this collection of novels is a must-have for fans of the films and those looking to be mesmerised by fantastic writing!

Philomena/The Silver Linings Playbook/The Lovely Bones -

Have not seen any of the films but thought the books were worth a look - especially at this price. It's rare that a book actually makes me cry but Philomena did just that. I was totally absorbed in The Lovely Bones and will keep my copy for re-reading.
