It's almost here: The biggest day of each year for movies is only a week away and we couldn't be more excited to see who's going to take home the top prizes. But, if you're anything like us, you love watching the movies and reading the books that inspired them--because what could be more fun that pulling apart all the details that the flick missed or got totally wrong (looking at you, Harry Potter franchise). Whether you fly through some of these in the next week, or spend the rest of your hibernation catching up on the wins and snubs in both the literary and cinematic worlds, we've rounded up all the books to read before the 2016 Oscars, all available at Indigo. Happy Reading!
