Topic: Freebie-Books You Want to See Made into Movies

  1. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Mass:  For one, it would be so packed with action with the perfect touch of romance! It would be so cool on screen.  I mean who doesn’t like a fierce female character.
  2. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin: Noah and Mara are just amazing and they need to be seen on big screen.
  3. Open Road Summer by Emery Lord: I can imagine this as a really cool musical movie. They should actually produced the songs from the book and used them in the movie. My life would be complete if this happens.
  4. These Broken Stars by Amiee Kaufman and Megan Spooner: The whole space thing would be pretty awesome.
  5. Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter: Because Cole…duh. But in all seriousness, the zombies are pretty cool.
  6. Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige: A movie about an evil Dorothy would make for a very interesting movie.
  7. Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken: Again, it would be so packed with action. Survival movies are always exciting.
  8. Legend by Marie Lu: I think it would be really cool how they perceive the world of Legend. For example, Antarctica in the book is an entirely digital world.
  9. Branded by Abi Ketner and Missy Kalicicki: One word. Colexi. Oh and Zeus of course.
  10. Unearthly by Cynthia Hand: There are so many good elements about the book I think I’d make a pretty cool movie.
