5 Books that Should Be Movies

Hello gentle readers,

Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins, City of Bones by Cassandra Clare, The Host by Stephenie Meyer, Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl… What do these books have in common? They have all been turned into movies that will come out in 2013.

I have read them, and they are good books, which means I’ll probably go and see their movie version. However, if I had a choice in deciding which books should be turned into movies, I would have made another list. Here are 5 books I really wish were movies:

1 – The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin (YA Paranormal)

The unbecoming of Mara Dyer

I have given up hope that Mara Dyer and Noah Shaw are real. Can I at least see them in a movie?

2 – The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater (YA Fantasy)

3 – Infinite Days by Rebecca Maizel (YA Paranormal)


The only Vampire Book out there that should be a movie, and the only one that isn’t, for some reason.

4 – American Gods by Neil Gaiman (Fantasy)


Neil Gaiman’s books become movies, slowly and surely. I just hope this one doesn’t get forgotten, because it’s my favourite by him.

5 – The Thief by Megan Whalen Turner (YA High Fantasy)


The awesomeness that is this book would make for an amazing movie.

Which book do you wish were a movie?

    NOAHHHHH. That’s really all I have to say 😀

    The only one of these I’ve read is The Raven Boys, but I agree! This would be a really entertaining movie, I think. 🙂

    I didn’t think anyone else had even HEARD of ‘The Thief’. I’m hoping Patrick Rothfuss’ Kingkiller Chronicles get the proper movie treatment. 🙂

  4. Great choices. I would LOVE for the Raven Boys to be a movie, but then again I think that I loved it for the writing. Hard to transfer her pretty writing to the big screen.

  5. American Gods is in the process of being turned into an HBO series. 🙂

  6. Ooo great list. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer has been on my to read list for a while – but I keep hearing such great things about it I must bump it up. Sadly there are three other great sounding books to add to that list. It’s hard when we’re spoiled for quality. (Strangely I’m reading City of Bones at the moment too…).

    Oh and I read The Thief too – and really enjoyed it – and I didn’t see the twist coming either.

    I am literally dying for Mara Dyer to become a movie!! I have been checking for the announce because it would be perfect. It’s a love story with a twist.
