Gallagher Girls series by Ally Carter
All I have to say is: Duh. Actually, no, I have more. Can't you imagine seeing one of the best group of friends trading lines back and forth in front of your eyes? Seeing all the cool spy moves that you read about in the books? The mansion? The characters? THE ROMANCE?
Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot
"But there already is a Princess Diaries movie out!" No. I love Anne Hathaway and I like that movie, but that is not a true representation of Meg Cabot's series. I would like a REAL version to be made with Tina and Boris in it, all the Michael scenes, and her father, who is actually alive. While I love Julie Andrews, they need to show the true, tough grandmother as well (also, sorry, Joe, but Lars needs to exist as well). They don't have to play out all ten movies
although it would benefit everyone, but they better show every single scene of the last book.
If I Stay by Gayle Forman
Perfect weepy movie. The book is emotional enough, but what if we could see Mia and Adam in the tough scenes? Or the flashbacks of her family? Not a dry eye in the room would be found and Hollywood aims for that.
Under the Never Sky series by Veronica Rossi
I imagine this one would be hard, but Hollywood has done harder. This is the fangirl inside of me demanding to see Roar on screen. Perry, too, but I have my priorities.
Airhead by Meg Cabot
A regular girl who takes over a model's body...I'm pretty sure Disney has made similar movies so I don't think it would be out of this world for Hollywood to produce a well-done movie version of this. Just no Disney Channel. Please, no.
Parallel by Lauren Miller
I just reviewed this one and if you haven't read my review, either go read it now or just know that I loved it. Book concussion and all the works. If this was in movie form, I think it's safe to say that nearly the whole population's mind would be blown by Miller's plot (at least, mine would even though I already read the book because the story is that good and it'd be fantastic to actually watch it). Besides, I read Miller's bio and she said she writes scripts. Maybe she could have more say than normal authors do!
Heist Society by Ally Carter
Same reasons for the Gallagher Girls. Thieves, a lovable group of people I long to actually visualize, and Hale. I want to see the cons played out!
Audrey, Wait! by Robin Benway
Again, I think Disney has danced around this idea as well. Girl goes instantly popular is a common storyline. However, Benway does it wonderfully and her version would not be the same.
Cinder by Marissa Meyer
What movie audience doesn't like fairytale retellings? Seriously, all the movies being made these days seem to be retellings of some sort. (I personally can't wait for Magnificent and the new Cinderella to come out.) So just add some awesome elements such as Iko, a futuristic/dystopian world, a cyborg protagonist, and all of Meyer's wonderful world building and the box office will be a hit!
The Song of the Lioness series by Tamora Pierce
Massive fangirling would ensue if this hit theaters. Girl disguises herself as a boy, becomes a knight, befriends cute guys which includes a thief and a prince, meets many awesome characters, and there's magic. Why hasn't this been made yet? In a perfect movie world, this would be my dream come true. In reality, I think I would be too scared to be excited for it. Maybe.
