Ten top books behind contemporary big-screen adaptations

One title on Melissa Albert's list of top new adaptations, as shared at B&N Reads:
The Danish Girl, by David Ebershoff

Eddie Redmayne brings his post-Oscar glow to the story of Lili Elbe, artist and transgender pioneer, told in this adaptation of Ebershoff’s 2000 novel. The natural drama of Elbe’s life-altering journey, and its effects on her marriage, are well-suited to the big screen, but also make for a compelling read. Her story is one of love, ambition, and identity, and an unconventional look at an unconventional 20th-century woman.
