    @ strigoi.
    Yes, The Vampire Academy! I agree one hundred percent! I loved the movie adaption, and I wish there were more! It'd be so interesting to see who the cast would be for the rest of the characters! tehe
    I would absolutely love for a great cast of people to make the Delirium series a movie! I know they turned it into a TV show and it didn't do so well, but honestly, a movie would fit so much better! If the plot wasn't so fast-paced in the script, I have a feeling that a lot of people would enjoy it very much.

    I would love to see the WAKE trilogy (WAKE, FADE, GONE) by Lisa McMann done. The books are out of this world, and if they could be done well, I think they could be phenomenal.

    I know they're supposely make The House Of Night series into films which I hope they do and that they bring them over to Ireland.

    Also,the Hush Hush series defiantly would make a brilliant movie.

    Possibly:The Graveyard Book
    The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod
    Vampire Labyrinth
    Lucas
    The left Hand Of God
    The Desert Spear

    There was this set of children's books I used to read called Warriors...well I don't think they should be labeled as children's book bc they actually have pretty deep meaning. Then again, they're all about forest cats that reside in clans & stuff & have internal issues as well as wars against e/o (basically like the world & it's countries)

    I don't know, it seems like it'd be a damn good movie

    I think The Moves Make the Man by Bruce Brooks would make a wonderful movie, but maybe I'm just biased because he's my favorite author.

    I'm surprised they haven't made an Uglies movie yet, but it would be tough - how "ugly" can you make the actors while still making them realistic? I have a feeling that nobody would be happy with that outcome.

    Audrey, Wait! would be one hell of a kickass teen movie; I pictured it as a movie the whole time I read it. tehe

    I really think Joyland by Stephen King would make a great movie. Also, The Invisible Bride by Julie Orringer would be a great historical romance film, but that probably wouldn't work out. If they used all the movie-worthy parts, it'd be a bit too long.

    The thing about making books into movies is that it's incredibly difficult to do this without screwing up the story.

    However, I think Peeps by Scott Westerfeld could become an interesting movie. It's the same deal with Rage by Stephen King and Up the Line by Scott Westerfeld.

    I think the Drizzt Do'Urden books would make some awesome movies, but the biggest problem would be getting the casting right (it would take some very special actors to play those characters and endure the make-up that would be needed to get the creatures right) and not messing up the entire storyline, which would more than likely happen considering it's too complex to be crammed into one movie, even if you did one movie per book. It'd be awesome to see them come to life on the big screen, but honestly, book adaptions make me hesitant anymore. Either way, it would be kinda cool if they did it right, even if they had to skip some things.
