|LOOK AT THAT AWESOME OUTFIT|
1 and 2: I have been cool with Sci-Fi YA since Zenon (Anybody?) so I would love to see Cinder by Marissa Meyer and The Rowan by Ann McCaffery! It has been 20 years people, lets get The Rowan on the big screen. ( this and Zenon together made Sci-Fi a big thing for me and Crazy Camper).
3. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. This is an obvious one. This book is dying to become a movie, its so visual.
4. The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater. (review!) The vistas of Ireland alone would be worth it! SWOON.
5. "Goblin Fruit," a short story in Lips Touch: Three Times by Laini Taylor. You would need to flesh the story out more, but Taylor has all kind of cool tricks in Daughter of Smoke and Bone. I am sure this is possible: In Victorian times, goblin men had only to offer young girls sumptuous fruits to tempt them to sell their souls. But what does it take to tempt today's savvy girls?
6. His Dark Materials trilogy by Phillip Pulman. That movie was mostly AWFUL( I reserve the little bit not awful for Daniel Craig). Lets pretend it never happened and make these into movies again!
7. The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau Banks by E. Lockhart. I am only halfway through this book, but who doesn't love a good caper flick? And I love that she is always two steps ahead of the boys.
8. Sunshine by Robin McKinley. Vampires that DON'T sparkle (they are creepy and gray-ish) in a post-apocalyptic magical world for the win! Things blow up, too. So this would be a vampire action movie.
And a book I would worry about being made into a movie:
9. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green Now, I loooovvve this book. But so much of what makes Hazel awesome is how she is so much more than her illness, but also is who she is because of the awareness being sick has given her. What if that didn't translate!?! Plus I don't know if my emotions could make it. I might cry myself into a puddle.
