These are spectacular books that were turned into the best movies or shows of all time!

The Top Ten

1 Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

I seen the first movie it was cool. - 23windomt

It's Harry Potter. I don't have to say anything else. - Kiteretsunu

2 The Hunger Games

The Hunger Games is actually one of the best movies ever! It shows people the harshness of a powerful government, yet the sweet taste of standing up for what you believe in and to join the rebellion! That's why the Hunger Games should be number one on this list!

3 A Game of Thrones
4 The Lord of the Rings

1) The Godfather BY FAR!

2)Lord of the Rings

3) Game of Thrones

4) The Hunger Games

5) Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Mostly Part 2. Part 1 was very average in my opinion) - aidanpscott

How is Harry Potter better than Lord of the Rings? J.R. R Tolkien is the one who inspired JK Rowling to write Harry Potter, so without him Harry Potter wouldn't exist!

5 Wizard's First Rule (Sword of Truth)
6 Twilight

This great? What a joke!

7 Divergent
8 Pretty Little Liars
9 The Bad Beginning (A Series of Unfortunate Events)

The movie was great! They should've made a movie for each of the books instead of combining them.

10 The Godfather

Book and movie, both were awesome - zuni

Ba dum, ba dum, ba dum, ba dum~
Dun, dun, dun, dun, dun, dun, dun, dun, dun, dun~
