    The Fault in Our Stars
    Before I go to Sleep
    13 Reasons Why
    The Airhead Series
    Noughts and Crosses Series
    *Any book by Sarah Dessen
    Before I Go to Sleep is being made into a film in 2014, starring Nicole Kidman and Colin Firth - I would have put this one down too. It'll either be true to the book and be really good or it will be really bad. Excited anyway though - I read this book in a day because I literally couldn't put it down

    Possibly some of Ali Cronin's other books (she wrote Skins, which has been and still is very popular)

    Leviathon series by Scott Westerfeld would be very interesting, it's a nice steampunk style, as long as they cast the two main characters properly I think it would be good.

    I wouldn't mind seeing the Seeker, Jango and Noman books being turned into movies. Not because they were good books (I didn't really enjoy them much) but because I thought they had interesting concepts and ideas about God. I would like to see the way the director takes it through.

    The Artemis Fowl series by Eoin Colfer

    I've read some of those books 5 times and I'd always have them out on loan whilst I was at school. It really got me into reading a kid.

    I've read a few of them. I think it'd make a much better tv show. There are a lot of characters and they could be fleshed out properly on a tv show, wouldn't be enough time if it was a film. The books are also pretty fast paced and action packed so they could easily keep every episode fairly exciting.
    Very true. 'Gone - the TV show' - I can see it now. It would be so gripping and the characters could be developed so well.

    I laugh at the daily mail sometimes - 'barefaced' Nicole Kidman having her makeup put on....
    So excited for this movie - hope it stays true to the book.

    Totally agree! They exagerate things way too much and that statement was contradictory!
    Me too! It's one of the few books I have read before the movie has even been made so I am really excited.
    You should check The Fault in Our Stars out- AMAZING!

    I second this. But only if it was done well and/or accurately. There's nothing worse than a film adaptation that misses out minor characters and plot lines

    Michael Grant's 'Gone' series would be quite something. There's rumours that they are planning on making a movie :woo:
    I love the 'Gone' books but that would one really disturbing film if they made it :curious:

    The uglies book series! I know they're quite old now and aimed at a young audience, but the idea of the stories was pretty good

    I think the most tragic thing about books and films is that "The Golden Compass" was not successful enough to warrant the entire Dark Materials trilogy being produced. Only book I cried at the end of reading. (lol 14)

    I always thought that Conn Igguldens, "Gates of Rome" or "Wolf of the Plains" series would make absolutely great TV shows/Films, especially after the HBO adaptation of Rome.

    They shouldn't have changed the name when they made it into a film imo. But it is a real shame they didn't make the others into films

    So, which books have you guys read that you'd like to see on the big screen?
    I'm currently reading through Jo Nesbø's detective novels featuring Harry Hole. They would make a good TV series IMO (probably been done already, in Norwegian).
