The “Rosemary’s Baby” mini-series is based on the novel written by Ira Levin. It was famously adapted into the famous film starring Mia Farrow. In the story, adapted from Ira Levin’s novel, Rosemary is the iconic young wife and would-be mother who, with her husband, moves into a Paris apartment that has a darkly storied past. After finally getting pregnant, she becomes increasingly suspicious that both her husband and their mysterious neighbors have ulterior motives about the future of her child.

Bill Gates is the last person you would think to be on this list, but when Scholastic asked him to share his list of novels that shaped his life, The Hunger Games showed up on his list.

Even though Emma Roberts didn’t get a part in the movie, she still admits to loving to book.

“I’m really excited to see the movie. I read all the books a couple weeks ago, and I’ve got all my friends hooked. It’s totally cool and I can’t wait to see it.”
