It’s definitely Goddess Interrupted series by Aimee Carter. I absolutely enjoyed reading the series and I would love to see it on the big screen.

Any book by Sandra
Brown.. Especially the books Play Dirty, Envy, Ricochet, The switch and Mirror image. She's an exquisite author, and her books keep you turning the pages. You find yourself thinking about the characters, long after you're done reading the book.

A Bend in the Road by Nicholas Sparks is one of my favourite books of all time. Nicholas Sparks has a way of drawing you in and making you feel every emotion along with the character. His previous film adaptations have not yet disappointed so I would love to see this one.

I would like to see the movie version of Silmarillion by Tolkien. I know it is all war and creation but I would love to see it in cinemas.

I wished they finished the Percy Jackson series it feels wrong to only have the first two books done. I wouldn’t mind seeing the Mercy Thompson series into movies, or even the house of night series; I think visually they can get the movie versions to be pretty awesome.

Since I started reading The Selection series by Kiera Cass a few years ago and again with every new release I always hoped a movie series would come from it, especially for the first three books.

A movie for Wake by Amanda Hocking would have also been much appreciated :character-ariel:

I want a do-over to Eragon's movie where they actually make it well enough to continue the series. The same thing with Inkheart.

I would totally be into that but I recognize it's a difficult book to make movies off. Maybe a series but then again, I doubt it can be translated well to screen.

I would love to see The Guild Hunter series on screen. I have always wondered how they would make the angels look and if they would be as magestic as described in the book.

I think the Selection Series by Kiera Cass. It was so awesome that it really must be a movie. It was fantastic to see such kind of story. :no-spoil:

Every action book; every book written by Baldacci, Grisham, and Patterson. they write stories with boring characters, i.e. movies.

I would love for the Girl On The Train to be a movie. I couldn't put it down. It's a murder mystery and just all drama in it, so entertaining. I think it would deffentley be a hit in the movie theaters. As someone who is trying to be a actress I be would be so up for a role if this was to be a thing.

The main series that breaks my heart that isn't a book is Lloyd Alexander's Chronicles of Prydain. They made a poor attempt to adapt the Black Cauldron, but in all honesty the entire series was wonderful and BETTER than Lord of The Rings. It baffles me that it hasn't been put on the screen yet. But it would have to be the same writers and producers that did LOTR, because it has to be done right.
