Top 10 Books to Movies

Top Ten Tuesdays is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week's topic is: Top Ten Books You'd Love to See as a Movie.

Guess what? It seems like any and every popular YA book these days is quickly optioned for a movie treatment. I couldn't limit my list to just 10! Here's my list of Top 15 (possibly) upcoming books to movies.

1. Delirium - Lauren Oliver
This was optioned as a movie, then filmed as a TV pilot for a series, but not picked up. Will it ever see the light of day?

2. Firelight - Sophie Jordan
I loved this book. I barely remember the non-dragon twin sister, but I bet they could feature lots of drama with her jealously staring down her sibling.

3. House of Night - PC Cast
I'm curious if they'll tone down the paganism in a big screen adaptation of this book series.

4. Paranormalcy - Kierstan White
This would be a lot of fun.

5. The Forest of Hands and Teeth - Carrie Ryan
A great zombie story and would provide lots of awesome visuals I think.

6. Vampire Academy - 2/14/14 - Richelle Mead
I am a sucker for stories that take place at boarding schools.

7. Divergent - Veronica Roth
This is coming out in March 2014.

8. Daughter of Smoke and Bone - Laini Taylor
Excitement is running very high for this adaptation. The last I heard, they are still working on a script. I can't wait to see this one!

9. Matched - Ally Condie
Disney has bought the rights, but no further word on this project.

10. Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children - Ransom Riggs
This deliciously creepy and wonderful book is in development for a film adaptation and tentatively scheduled for release in 2015.

11. Shadow and Bone - Leigh Bardugo
In development.

12. The Raven Boys - Maggie Stiefvater
Here's another book that's been picked up and is in development.

13. Uglies - Scott Westerfeld
In development.
14. Wicked Lovely - Melissa Marr
In development with no release date or even casting news yet.

15. Graceling - Kristin Cashore
This is in development and may come out in 2014.

  1. Interesting! It was was news to me that some of the titles you've listed have already been optioned for films. Not a great surprise, I suppose, considering the popularity of YA adaptations!
