Anthony Jr. (anthonymbriggsjr) | 42 comments Ender's Game. I can picture the war game battle scenes, the music, Ender's rise through the ranks. If done right and not over commercialized, this would blow up.

Bonus: even though it's not a book - Thundercats. Done as a real movie with a tight storyline, do you know how many people would be fighting to see this?


message 2: by Marrie (new)

Marrie I always thought Gone (Gone, #1) by Michael Grant would be really cool to see as a movie.


message 3: by Erica (new)

Erica I think Divergent (Divergent, #1) by Veronica Roth and Beautiful Disaster (Beautiful, #1) by Jamie McGuire would make great movies

Nicole D. (TheReadingRebel) | 1406 comments I would like to Divergent (Divergent, #1) by Veronica Roth, The Iron King (The Iron Fey, #1) by Julie Kagawa,and Clockwork Angel (The Infernal Devices, #1) by Cassandra Claremade into movies.

Sandra Bloodlines Series by Richelle Mead
or I would love to see Good Omens by Terry Pratchett
or even The left Hand of God by Paul Hoffman

Well the other two aren't Y.A. Books but they would do great in a film lol

Divergent will be released as a motion picture in 2014, or as far as Wikipedia says... :/

Emily I listened to The Witch of Blackbird Pond earlier this year and then looked it up on IMDB, confident a book that old would have had at least one movie adaptation. There wasn't one! I would love to see it done as a movie.

Marrie I also think Delirium (Delirium, #1) by Lauren Oliver would be interesting to see on screen.

Gary Bonn | 34 comments A dance company, a film group and a CGI group are trying to reproduce the first Princes Street Gardens dance from 'The Evil and The Fear'. I'm nervous...

The Evil and the Fear

Eloise Kindred | 15 comments I'd love to see some of Garth Nix's stuff made into movies. The Abhorsen trilogy would work really well - love the mix of traditional fantasy with the more urban world across the border. Also really enjoyed reading the Keys to the Kingdom series, but seven movies set in such differing environments with loads of special effects would probably be too expensive!

Emma | 98 comments i would like Poison Study (Study, #1) by Maria V. Snyder to be made into a film it is one of my fave books ever, also The Final Empire (Mistborn, #1) by Brandon Sanderson would make an amazing film in my opinion.

Tracy (tracesoftracy) | 27 comments Evermore (The Immortals, #1) by Alyson Noel this one should deff be made into a book, Firelight (Firelight, #1) by Sophie Jordan this one would be awesome to be put into a movie, && The Forest of Hands and Teeth (The Forest of Hands and Teeth, #1) by Carrie Ryan rumors keep saying this is going to be made into a movie but I just haven't seen anything yet about it.

message 32: by Tracy (new)

Tracy | 61 comments How about The Immortal Rules (Blood of Eden, #1) by Julie Kagawa or Enclave (Razorland, #1) by Ann Aguirre Might be a little intense with the creepy zombie-type characters. Ooh ooh, or how about The Hunt (The Hunt, #1) by Andrew Fukuda?? Also creepy.
