9. Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides. I’m surprised this hasn’t been made into a movie yet. Or a crappy tv series or something. Has it? Did I miss it?
8. The Burn Journals by Brent Runyon. I loved this book when I was a teenager. I feel like they could make a movie along the lines of The Perks of Being a Wallflower.
7. Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret by Judy Blume. I’m thinking My Girl, but less tragically sad.
6. Rosemary and Juliet by Judy MacLean. It would be terrible, it would be Lifetime movie-esque, but guys, I would watch it and I would love it.
5. Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See. This would be heartbreaking and beautiful—my kind of film.
4. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. For some reason, when I see this as a movie in my head, it’s very stylized and whimsical while being very profound and disturbing at the same time. Like a French film.
3. Looking for Alaska by John Green. Just because.
2. Half Broke Horses by Jeannette Walls. This would make such an amazing, badass movie.
1. The Giver by Lois Lowry. I’d love to see this done really well. It’s such an incredible story.
Which books would you like to see as a movie? Which book-to-film adaptations are you looking forward to? (I can’t wait for Catching Fire!)
