Top Ten Books We'd Like to See Made into a Movie

So many of our favorite books have already been turned into movies or are on their way to theaters that it took us a little while to compose this list. Here's what we decided on:
  1. The Infernal Devices series by Cassandra Clare: Will and Jem on the big screen! Need we say more?
  2. Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder: This book has such a unique premise, not to mention a strong, determined heroine and one of the coolest assassins ever.
  3. Bloodlines by Richelle Mead: Can you imagine Adrian being acted out? It would be amazing, not to mention all his kick-arse lines.
  4. Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor: We would look forward to seeing all the chimaera and Karou's blue hair! And then you would get to see all the little places Karou and Akiva got to explore in the novel.
  5. Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld: This would make an amazing movie! First you have Deryn and all her flying missions, and then you have Alek playing fugitive. Just think of all the special effects! There would be beasties and clanker items and battle scenes!
  6. Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta: This epic fantasy has it all: action, adventure, romance, unforgettable characters, and a powerful story that makes you laugh one minute and well up with tears the next.
  7. The Iron King by Julie Kagawa: It would be amazing to see the world of the Nevernever brought to life in a movie adaptation. We'd especially love to see Puck and Grimalkin.
  8. The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan: One word: ZOMBIES!! This would be a great zombie movie! It would be so funny with all the blood and gore! The mystery part of the book would also give the whole zombie horror flick a new dimension.
  9. Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins: Hex Hall would make a very interesting movie. Not only would you have witches and vampires, but you would get a taste of ghosts, shapeshifters, werewolves, and faeries. Plus, Cal is a groundskeeper . . . like Hagrid!
  10. Legend by Marie Lu: Day and June's contrasting lives and their eventual entwinement, along with a dystopian setting, make for absorbing drama.

Which books would you look forward to seeing on the big screen? We'd love to hear about them!

  4. The Iron King is the only book that I've read on your list, but almost all of the rest are on my TBR list! I need to read Leviathan - I loved the Uglies series!

  5. Ooh some of my favorites are on here - Graceling, Poison Study & Legend - they would all make great movies *fingers crossed*
