Check out what’s coming to Netflix Book Club in April 2022. These Netflix originals based on books include psychological thriller, drama, romantic, and mystery movies, series.

Some of my most popular posts are my Netflix movie lists. So, I decided to start posting the Netflix Book Club picks each month, too.

Did you miss the Netflix Book Club pick for March 2022?

Here’s the Netflix Book Club pick for April 2022.

This month, we’re reading Sarah Dessen’s Along for the Ride, which will soon make its way to Netflix! Written and directed by To All the Boys writer Sofia Alvarez, our next book-to-screen adaptation stars Emma Pasarow and Belmont Cameli as Auden and Eli.

The film also stars icons Kate Bosworth, Dermot Mulroney and Andie MacDowell.

Along for the Ride

Available on Netflix on May 6, 2022.

About the movie:

While the town of Colby sleeps, love is very much alive.

The summer before college Auden meets the mysterious Eli, a charming, mysterious fellow insomniac. While the picturesque seaside town of Colby sleeps, the two embark on a nightly quest to help Auden experience the fun, carefree teen life she never knew she wanted.

During their nightly adventures, Eli challenges Auden to live out all her childhood dreams. Their connection pushes them to confront why they've been content living life in the shadows as they begin to show each other how to live life to the fullest.
