permalink What books do you think would be uber cool movies, if done well?

I think The [i]Truth About Forever[/i] by Sarah Dessen would be pretty cool. I really want to see what Wes would look like. XD And also, [i]Uglies-Pretties-Specials-Extra's[/i] by Scott Westerfeld.

I think Ouran High School Host would be a pretty sweet(and utterly weird) live action movie. If it was done, like, really good! :D

permalink i wanted to see live action of the keys to the kingdom series!
i love the story~
it kinda reminds of harry potter a bit, because the writers are both not from US [no, not discrimination] and they both write things full of magic~

permalink ok so blue bloods is a really good series.... it mixed vampires in with books like gossip girl and private.... its very interesting and the story line is really awesome :RBhalo: :RBhalo: :RBhalo: ...
heres a quick intro into blue bloods by melissa de la cruz.

When the Mayflower set sail in 1620, it carried on board the men and women who would shape America: Miles Standish; John Alden; Constance Hopkins. But some among the Pilgrims were not pure of heart; they were not escaping religious persecution. Indeed, they were not even human. They were vampires.

The vampires assimilated quickly into the New World. Rising to levels of enormous power, wealth, and influence, they were the celebrated “blue bloods” of American society. The Blue Bloods vowed that their immortal status would remain a closely guarded secret. And they kept that secret for centuries.

But now, in New York City, the secret is seeping out. Schuyler Van Alen is a sophomore at a prestigious private school. Suddenly, when she turns fifteen, there is a visible mosaic of blue veins on her arm. She starts to crave raw food -- and she is having flashbacks to ancient times. Then a girl from her school is found dead . . . drained of all her blood. Schuyler doesn’t know what to think. Could those vampire legends really be true?

permalink Oh I'm with you on that! Though with all the plot points, I think it might be better suited for a TV series.

permalink The House of Night series is being made into a movie and I personally do not think much of it, though I do like the novels.


I'd go with The Black Jewel series by Anne Bishop and The Belgarion series by David Eddings. I'm a huge fantasy geek.

permalink I would like to see Kresley Coles Imortal after dark series made into a movie. I bet I would do better than Twilight. I love all of the characters, especialy Nix, she's so cool. I just don't know what they would do about all the naughtyness. If you like vampire or where wolf romance I suggest you try these books. :P

permalink A lot of my favourite books:
[i]Debout les morts[/i] ([i]The Three Evangelists[/i]) by Fred Vargas
[i]Ceux qui vont mourir te saluent[/i] (I don't know the official English title here but a translation would be: [i]Those who are about to die greet you[/i]*) by Fred Vargas as well
[i]A Charming Mass Suicide[/i] by Arto Paasilinna
[i]La vie devant soi[/i] (
[i]Kafka on the Shore[/i] by Murakami (but I guess that that is pretty difficult to film :RBstickout: )

I hope I will get to see them one day... :)

*it's a sentence gladiators used to say to Caesar before they would fight and.. die...

permalink ouran high would be a really, really good movie if it will be done... and i will be the one in the cinemas to be watching it if i can...

I also think that lynsay sand's books about the argeneau vampires would also be nice...

then paulo coelho's the alchemist should also be made into a movie... but i think that won't be possible because the books is not that thick like those written by nicholas sparks....

the book i wanted to see in a movie has already been a movie, nicholas sparks' Dear John... the story is just so touching and nice... a very beautiful love story... a story that can make a person cry...

permalink I am still waiting for a film adaptation of the books "Abarat" by Clive Barker who is much more renowned for his Hellraiser serie.
"Abarat" and "Days of Magic, Nights of war" are already out and we're still waiting for the 3 next volumes.
And an adaptation of all the books of the "Dune" serie by Franck Herbert. Could be a fantastic adventure. There is already 2 mini-series that were created for the TV but most of the books are still untouched.

For a japanese background or japanese author, I would love to see adaptations of all the Jiro Taniguchi books.

permalink It's nice to see great books being interpreted by great directors on film, but the movie version of a book is ALWAYS inferior to the book itself.

I can't decide. :S

Maybe the books of Paulo Coelho?

permalink NONE! i hate when people make perfectly awesome books into sucking (i reeeeaaaally wanna say something else) movies, cuz they ALWAYS have actors or drawings that doesn't match my picture of them! take.. take the Twilight saga. the books, are, well, they're kinda awesome, but then they put Robert Pattison as Edward, Kirsten Stewart as Bella and oh my god a black dude as Laurent! oh my f***ing god VAMIPRES ARE CHRYSTAL WHITE!!!!! :madc: thats a HUUUGE fail from the makers' sides. just for the record, im no racist, and if he wasn't playing a vamp i wouldn't have any problems with his skin color at all! i mean it, i really don't care, but wow... :brickwall:

so my answer is: NONE!!! o_0

since it seems to be popular, it'll probably be made into a movie. it would be something interesting for the big screen....

permalink The Dark-Hunter series would be awesome as movies! Only thing is that they all have inhumanely hot and sexy guys in them so they have to find hot actors. and the movies would probably be like rated R or X or they would have to leave a lot of stuff out of the books. a lot of the good stuff, if you know what i mean. they are awesome though. really great series. they would be great for a tv mini series i think.

permalink I got three ideas.
"Tell Me What You See" is set in Berlin during the winter and follows Alissa, who begins hallucinating after she uproots an odd purple plant from a child's corpse in a tomb. Her friend Evelin now has to figure out how to save her from losing her sanity and her stalker ex-boyfriend. It's a very eery, evocative book and I think it would make a chilling horror movie.

"The Betrayal of Natalie Hargrove" is about a girl competing to be prom queen who unravels after murdering a boy she disliked in the past. It's a twisted story.

The Luxe series is a lot like Gossip Girl, only set in 1899 Manhattan. It's a really engrossing story.
