I haven't read either book but after seeing the insane rating on goodreads for Angelfall, I went and purchased a copy for consumption. Break My Heart 1000 Times was actually only released in October, and was optioned long before it even came out. So it'll be interesting to see what people are saying once more reviews come in. But I have to say, I love me some ghost stories! Either one sound like they would be great on film. Break My Heart is much further in production than Angelfall. But let's be honest, it's Sam Raimi backing Angelfall. It already has my support!
What do you think? Have you read either of these books? Excited for more adaptations? Thoughts below!
