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

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 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!

4 A Game of Thrones

I love GOT. I’m not allowed to read the books, so, even though the books are totally different from what I’ve been told, thank God for the show. - Miauzer

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

The Contenders

11 Rosemary's Baby
12 The Exorcist
13 American Psycho

A fascinating and disturbing book that translated beautifully into film. Excellent read for the non-squeamish. - DamnFineCupOfCoffee

14 The Green Mile
15 The Shining
16 Hogfather
17 Jaws
18 Jurassic Park
19 Forrest Gump
20 Dune
