If the A Court of Thorns and Roses series and Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas aren't adapted into movies I will drown the world in tears. True, the story is a little overhyped but I love everything about fairies and Fae and whatnot and like to see onscreen representations of this particular aspect of fantasy fiction.

Last month, for our school book club we read "Caraval" by Stephanie Garber. 10/10 recommended if you like Romance, Action, and Fantasy. My friend and I who also read the book found a PERFECT song that could be for a trailer of the book, and now I really REALLY want it to be a movie. I think it would have the ability to be a great adaptation If DoNe RigHT.

I love Molly McAdams books. And i wish that they would make movies out if it. Chase is by far the best book I've read form Molly.

Finally a Wheel of Time series is coming. I hope Amazon doesn't screw it up.

Definitely the KingKiller Chronicles. I want to see Kvothe and Denna and all the university Masters.

One book series that I thought should have been made into a movie series was the Unwind series. I think that the plot is interesting and different than other dystopian novels that I have read and it would be cool to see it in movie form.

As much as I love The NeverEnding Story film from the mid 1980s, I wish a new film would be made that follows Michael Ende's narrative more closely. :D

I agree. Michael narrative has a better story line.

I wish that any of Brandon Sanderson's books were made into movies. Especially the Stormlight Archive and the Mistborn series.
I totally agreed with you, but it will be a really difficult film to make. Too many stories, too many personages, the environment itself! It will be a challenge to any filmmaker.

The catacomb series by Madeleine Roux would make a great movie trilogy.

The Reckoners by Brandon Sanderson. He has such a cinematic way of writing any way plus, people are really into the whole "super hero" thing right now so I think people would like it. Also, also, it's a YA series and all of those have to be made into movies or Netflix dramas, right?
