I want to see Eileen turned into a movie. It's twisted and hilarious. I'd love to see who would be cast as the lead.

There's this book called eerie that would be perfect for a movie. It is kind of a twist on beauty and the beast with a wonderful story line and great characters. The plot is unique in some ways and the ending is amazing. :)

I'd love to see What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty become a movie. It probably will never happen but one can hope.

The complete End Times series! They only had the Left Behind part out, which is like 1/4 of the first book... and there are 12 books :)

I would love to see the adaptation of The Selection Series by Kiera Cass. It is such a beautiful book that I want to read it over and over again.

Susan Ee’s “Penryn & the End of Days” trilogy: ANGELFALL, WORLD AFTER, and END OF DAYS – I would just die for these three books to be seen on the big screen. I truly am a HUGE fan of this trilogy, so I hope if there would ever come a time that they would finally make these books into movies – I would just hope and pray that the film production would do justice to portray the story and the characters in the book accurately - so as not to ruin these amazing books’ great image.

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern! I would especially love to see Tim Burton direct a movie adaptation for it!

I once read a book online which I found extraordinarily epic. It was named "Anarchy" and had a sequel "Annihilation". It totally blew my mind and I wanted it to be a movie. It got published a few months later and I was happy that I read it when it was available freely.

Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi! Although the series is still ongoing. Dystopia-themed novels have been great blockbuster hits, I'm sure this one will be, too.

The Vampire Academy series!!! First part in the series was released but due to its poor reception and financial failure, plan for sequels was cancelled. I really hope someone sees the potential in the series and I can watch it someday.
