Books That Should Be Made Into Movies

Which book or book series do you think should have a movie made from it?

The Top Ten

1 Stargirl - Jerry Spinelli

One of my favorite books of all time, this is a realistic fiction set in Arizona, so it should be relativity easy to pull off, but what will make it good is the clever plot line that will make you laugh so hard you get stitches, and will move you to tears. The character that the novel is named after, Stargirl, will be the most vivid character will ever read in your life time.

A very odd girl comes to school. At first she's popular, but she later stops.

This book was awesome! Had to red it in class, which I don't often like, but I enjoyed this one.

Yes! I think that the setting for the movie would be AMAZING!

2 The Silmarillion - J.R.R. Tolkien

This epic book predates all of the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit books, and sets up a history and ancestry for them.
So many great stories, and so many great characters, could be made into a long-running franchise of at least 10 movies.

Best book ever deserves the best movie ever

Oh please, Peter Jackson? - LarkwingFlight

The Silmarillion is actually the center point for which JRR Tolkien created high fantasy. Best movie (or 4 or 5 of them) ever.

3 Bone - Jeff Smith
4 The Truth About Forever - Sarah Dessen

I would love a movie on this book. The entire book conveys real emotion! Love that about it!

Have been waiting for years gor this book to be made into a movie, will it happen soon?

This is the only YA novel I love and it should be adapted into a movie! - Fazrin

Awesome book, amazing author.

5 One Hundred Years of Solitude - Gabriel García Márquez V 2 Comments
6 Percy Jackson & the Olympians - Rick Riordan

this series is the best you must make all of the books into a movie!

Wish they can make a real good movie with real scenes and great characters. These two movies makes me wanna throw up. The book is fantastic so I wonder why the movie is terrible. There's just too many changes.

This book will probably be made into a film as they have already made the first two books into films

I mean a REAL movie, not Logan Lerman's attempt.

7 Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Ugly Truth - Jeff Kinney
8 Looking for Alaska - John Green

They are making a movie aren't they? Well, agreed but I'd love an abundance of katherines to be made into movie more

9 I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill You - Ally Carter

Cammie attends an all-girls boarding school for spies. When she bumps into a hot but normal boy during a training exercise, she has to use all her skills to stop the school from finding out about her crush and stop the boy from learning who she really is.

10 Pendragon - D.J. MacHale

I read that series so many times and I'm still not tired of it but if they do make it I'm afraid they might mess it up because sometimes when they make a good series in to a movie it can turn out terrible but since dj machale produces T.V. shows and stuff and he knows what he's doing that would be good so if it does make it to the bigscreens then dj should help out

Holy crap would this ever make a great film. And D. J. MacHale also worked on shows like 'Are You Afraid of the Dark' and 'Flight 29 Down'. Pendragon would definitely be 5 star. - Oreanta

When I was reading this series it seemed to be the only thing I could ever think about, all I could do was read, read, read, and read. It was wonderful. If you have not read these books already, you haven't lived life. So please go and enjoy this wonderful suspense-filled sries. And I promise, you will devour it. Just as I have.

This book is my favorite book it is so amazing I have read it 3 times. - Lord_Allen

The Newcomers

? The Contender - Robert Lipsyte

The Contenders

11 Artemis Fowl - Eoin Colfer

Harry Potter was made movie... but Artemis would be better!!!!

A great book which could be made into an awesome movie. Also'Percy Jackson' but its being made into a movie.

It is a great series that would be a great movie as well

12 Forest Born - Shannon Hale

Forest girl Rin always had the trees for company. But one day, they turn away from her and grow silent. Not feeling she belongs anymore, she goes to the city. But an unknown person is threatening the royal family, and Rin and her friends are in for a nasty surprise. This is the sequel to River Secrets.

13 Golden Boy - Tara Sullivan
14 Fox in Socks - Dr. Seuss
15 Dragonriders of Pern Series - Anne McCaffrey

Would make for an awesome series of movies that I think would be better than Lord of the Rings. -

They are actually making this into a movie,

16 Before I Fall - Lauren Oliver
17 A Song of Ice and Fire Series - George R. R. Martin

At least it's a show which is so amazing on HBO

By George R. R. Martin. Would be fantastic films.

18 Curse of the Spider King - Christopher Hopper and Wayne Thomas Batson
19 Warriors Series - Erin Hunter

Hard to imagine how they'd get the cats to fight, but hey, this series desperately needs more attention. seriously, if they can find a way to combine like maybe 3 books into 1 movie and still make it good, they could cover the whole first six books in 2 movies! I'd totally watch them - ThatStrangeKid42

It would have to be done in animation similar to avatar the last airbender or some other really well made cartoon there is no way this could be done with actual cats - maverick88

This is a great, popular series! The movie (if made right) would be completely EPIC! - Splashstorm

I love this book it would be the best thing in the world if it was a movie

You know what? I would rather an Anime than a full blown movie. after all, they already made a few Manga of the series, and they were pretty good. I could see maybe a Netflix exclusive anime working really well. (I would watch it) - LarkwingFlight

20 Frantic - Katherine Howell

Very interesting and intriguing story. It could have been a great Thriller/Mystery. The main female character is a very cool and desperate personality. I like her - Irina2932

Frantic would make a great movie, thoroughly enjoyed it to read, love to see it on the screen.

Awesome crime novel that just unfolds in front of you exactly like a movie! I can't believe it hasn't been made into one already. Her other books are just as good too.
