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
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.

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.

2 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.

The second someone put this on the list, a finger curled up on the monkey's paw.

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

3 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 Tolkien family should stop crying over spilled Melk (sorry, couldn't help that) and make this thing while New Zealand is still on a roll.

Basic schedule-the following to come out about every year:
The Silmarillion 1: Flight of the Noldor
2: Beren and Luthien
3: Children of Hurin
4: The Fall of Gondolin
5: The War of Wrath
6: Pride of Ar-Phariz�'n
This is not by any means inclusive of the major movie subjects.

4 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.

There is a movie but we need a better one.

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

5 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

6 Bone - Jeff Smith

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.

7 Pendragon - D.J. MacHale

I've read that series so many times, and I'm still not tired of it. However, I'm afraid they might mess it up if they decide to turn it into a movie. Sometimes, when they adapt a good series into a movie, it can turn out terrible. But since DJ MacHale produces TV shows and stuff, and he knows what he's doing, it would be good if he could help out. So if the series does make it to the big screens, DJ should definitely be involved.

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.

8 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!

9 Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Ugly Truth - Jeff Kinney
10 One Hundred Years of Solitude - Gabriel García Márquez
The Contenders
11 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

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

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.

15 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.

16 Seconds Away - Harlan Coben
17 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.

18 Frantic - Katherine Howell

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.

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

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

19 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.

20 Fox in Socks - Dr. Seuss
21 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.

22 Marked - Kristin Cast and P. C. Cast
23 A Song of Ice and Fire Series - George R. R. Martin

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

24 Before I Fall - Lauren Oliver
25 Curse of the Spider King - Christopher Hopper and Wayne Thomas Batson
