It would be any genre however I don’t mind. I just want it to be a good book with a movie adaptation or a tv series adaptation.

Hi! Recently Malorie Blackman's Noughts and Crosses series has been made into a series that you can get on iPlayer, it's amazing in the way that it is so controversial yet relevant to today. If you wanted a classic, 1984 is quite an old film now, based on George Orwell's book of the same name - also the inspiration for Big Brother. In the same thinking there's A Clockwork Orange, ridiculously creepy and will play games with your head, not one to watch when you're home alone.

If you're looking to branch out into other genres, Stephen King's novels have nearly all been made into films- It, Pet Semetary etc. There are also a multitude of classics you could watch/read e.g. Little Women, Emma, The Picture of Dorian Gray.

Hope this helps!

Oh thank youu. Also like how do I get into the habit of reading? Like once I read I end up reading for hours but I can’t get myself to actually do it. Also like how long does it take you to read a book?

Kite Runner?
I said HP because most movie-book adaptions are kinda disappointing. Movies tend to skip over a bunch of details.

I like kite runner but I wasn’t my thing. I like books that’s have some sort of romance in them like for example divergent and hunger games if that makes sense

The Hannibal Lecter books by Thomas Harris have been made into several movies and a TV series, they're pretty good

There's "The Darkest Minds" by Alexander Bracken (turned into a movie last year or so!) and "The 5th Wave" by Rick Yancey
