Top 10 Books or Book Series That Should Be Made Into Movies

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

The Top Ten

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.

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

I love it, I think it would make a great film. It spreads a good message, Unique is beauty.

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

Artemis Fowl - Eoin Colfer

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

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

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

Disney is making this into a movie

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.

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

Best book ever deserves the best movie ever

Oh please, Peter Jackson?

Percy Jackson & the Olympians - Rick Riordan

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

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

Awesome Story...
Great Description..
Good emotional description...
You would be thrilled

Bone - Jeff Smith Bone - Jeff Smith Product Image

Heck yeah. I'd love for it to be made a movie. Maybe from the same creators of The Peanuts Movie or Captain Underpants movie. Just with some great animators, directors, or producers. Maybe Disney should take a look into it.

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

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.

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.

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

Warriors Series - Erin Hunter

I would prefer if Warriors was turned into an animated TV series rather than a movie. Then it could be adapted better without butchering the story and characters while trying to shove everything into a few movies. Each arc could be its own season, except maybe a lot of the filler from arc 2,3 and 4 can be removed and they can only become season 2 and 3. I would also prefer if it was mostly 2D, like Anime, rather than completely live action (I know that some anime uses 3D for really dynamic moments, but it still isn’t live action, so Warriors could be like that). It would just be easier to read the emotions of the characters if they were animated in 2D

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

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

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)

These wouldn't be good movies because people would cram a whole series into one movie. But I have a feeling it would be a really good anime

The Truth About Forever - Sarah Dessen The Truth About Forever - Sarah Dessen Product Image

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!

Awesome book, amazing author.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Ugly Truth - Jeff Kinney

I heard it is

One Hundred Years of Solitude - Gabriel García Márquez

I loved it but it just can't be made into a movie

This book is just "unmovieable".

This book is just "umovieable".

The Contenders

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

The Stonekeeper (Amulet #1) - Kazu Kibuishi The Stonekeeper (Amulet #1) - Kazu Kibuishi Product Image
The Contender - Robert Lipsyte
Green Eggs and Ham - Dr. Seuss Green Eggs and Ham - Dr. Seuss Product Image

There is no way they can stretch the story so much it would last 2 hours. It may be a little entertaining, but the book itself is no more than 40 or 50 pages (I think). Besides, the story itself wasn't all that good, unlike the Lorax and Horton Hears a Who!, which both got turned into movies. Maybe a different Dr. Seuss book could be made in a movie, just not Green Eggs and Ham.

The other Dr. Seuss movies are awesome and this book is AWESOME! I think they should make The Cat In The Hat Comes Back. I also think if they made The Island of the Blue Dolphins, Miranda Cosgrove would be the perfect actress because she looks a lot like the character in the book.

It's inevitable. Illumination is gonna make it. I would've preferred an live-action one.

Agreed! And you can get both Johnny Depp & Jim Carrey to star!

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.

Seconds Away - Harlan Coben Seconds Away - Harlan Coben Product Image
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.

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

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.

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

Fantastic author and all her books are deserving

Golden Boy - Tara Sullivan

In Tanzania, Habo is born with white skin, yellow hair and pale blue eyes - an albino. He already feels left out at home, but when his family moves house, he realizes that there are people who kill albinos to use their body parts as talismans. Habo has to flee for his life, hunted by a ruthless killer.

Fox in Socks - Dr. Seuss Fox in Socks - Dr. Seuss Product Image
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,

Marked - Kristin Cast and P. C. Cast Marked - Kristin Cast and P. C. Cast Product Image
