1. Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover
*squeals* I know. I know. Fangirls everywhere are fanning themselves right now. It is in production. Nik keeps posting pilot selfies. It’s all too much. The book is really good, but I just hope they don’t turn it into another Fifty Shades of Grey because it is not!
2. Allegient by Veronica Roth
I feel like the Divergent hype might have died down, but I am loyal until the end. I need to see what they change and what they do. Also, the movie scores and soundtracks so far have been fantastic!
3. Heist Society by Ally Carter
You have no idea how much I want to see Hale come to life. That boy will be the death of me. Also, we need to see a kickass female con artist because its not just a male dominated industry. Hehe.
4. The Darkest Minds by Alexander Bracken
I’m really stoked this is being made into a movie. I’m a sucker for a dystopian novel turned movie and I can’t wait to see the book come to life. Reading TDM it was difficult at times to picture things which is why I think I never continued reading the trilogy. Maybe having visuals to go with it will push me to finish the trilogy once and for all!
5.Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by J.K. Rowling
So clearly we know we’re getting this as a movie. Release date is in November 18, 2016. I have been overly pumped for this because the lack of anything Harry Potter in my life has been palpable. With the release of the cast in August 2015 and the exclusive Entertainment Weekly cover with Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander my excitement levels has increase exponentially. I wailed with excitement and cried at my desk for the beauty of the cover. Let’s just say I need November 18, 2016 to be here yesterday.
6.Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout
This movie adaptation was just announced by Jennifer herself. The production company Mr. Mudd will be working on the film and Sierra Affinity is backing the movie. I absolutely loved this novel and am totally excited to about the prospect of a film version. Alien love stories- my favorite! My worries are always the same when book to movie adaptations happen- wrong cast, leaving out of crucial moments, etc. One of my biggest concerns is that it will be another Twilight film (which I hated- books and movies). More information about the film can be found on Jennifer’s website. This movie is currently listed as “in development”.
6.Fallen by Lauren Kate
This book is part of a series I read a few years ago. “It’s about a young girl who attends a boarding school after being blamed for the death of a boy in her home town. At he school she finds herself drawn to a fellow student, unaware that he is an angel, and has loved her for thousands of year.” I am interested in how this movie turns out since the plot is fairly simple. They already have a cast though more information is difficult to find. I am confident that this movie will be halfway decent since the author, Lauren Kate, is credited as a writer for the project. It is currently “in production” with a release date of 2016.
8.The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
While this book isn’t necessarily labeled as “Young Adult”, it is a cross generational story for everyone to enjoy. There is magic, a feud, and romance. This was the first ebook I read and I was extremely impressed with the author- it was her debut book. The film rights have been optioned by Summit Entertainment but that is about all the information available at this point. Keeping my fingers crossed that it reaches “in production” status soon.
9.Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
This book was A-MAZ-ING! Read it! Karou and Akiva are two of my all-time favorite characters. It was suggested to me by my best friend and I threw through the trilogy because it was so good. And Hopefully the movie is great too. Right now drafts of the script are being written and it looks like Universal Pictures optioned the film rights. Lets hope we get more information soon!

I am VERY excited to watch Ugly Love. I hope it’s adapted well! Great list! 🙂
Woo! Me too! Thanks!
Oh. So Ugly Love will be adapted. Hm.. I hope it will be good. And though I am still sad about how the Divergent ended, I will still watch Allegiant! 😀
BTW, here’s my TTT: http://wp.me/p4ZhSl-kk. 🙂
It is! I think the production company wanted to see how much it would raise first and then go to other sources for funding. Did you see there will be another movie after Allegiant?! I was like wth… I’m intrigued. Thanks for stopping by!
I think that’s Allegiant Part 2? 🙂
Thank you for sharing!
I completely forgot that The Night Circus is being made into a movie! I haven’t actually read the book yet but have heard a lot about it, and I imagine it’ll be quite enchanting. 🙂
The book is so magical! If you get a chance definitively read it!
I will! I think my cousin read it and felt like it was much too purple prosey; did you feel the same way?
I’ve never read purple prosperity but I’ll definitely check it out!
No, no, haha. Purple prose–it’s basically text that’s too flowery/descriptive? 😛
Oh haha I thought you were talking about book. Oops! Yeah. It’s super flowery and descriptive which is my favorite!
I hope ugly love turns out ok because the book was so good
I hope so too! I really don’t want people to think its another FSoG. I will be so mad if it turns out like that. Thanks for stopping by!
I know! That’s what the trailer kind of looked like and I don’t want people thinking that it’s all about the sex cause it’s not
I actually stopped watching the movies because it was turned into something the books weren’t. I had a difficult time with that.
Ugh. I hate when that happens!
Me too! It isn’t at all.
I’m really eager to see what they will change/or not in the ending of the Divergent series, too 😀 Great list! 😀
I didn’t know The Night Circus was being made into a movie. I can’t wait to see that world come to life!
If they do it right it should be amazing. I could see this movie being made into a black and white movie for a portion of it just because of how the book is.
I loved The Night Circus sooo much I would adult fangirl all over the place for a movie! I haven’t seen any actual news that it is definitely being made into a movie, though.
Here’s my Top Ten Tuesday
It was optioned by Summit Entertainment and they are usually good about actually producing movie when optioning the rights. But no other information has been released yet
I had no idea that the film rights for The Night Circus has been optioned and I would really love to see how they turn this wonderful book into a film.
I feel like I need to read Ugly Love cause I hear so many great things about the book.
Yeah they could either make The Night Circus film really well or really terrible. I don’t think there would be an in between for it.
OMG they are making Obsidian into a movie! How did I not know? There are so many I’m learning about that now I must stalk to find more about!!! Great list! <a href="http://functioninginsanity.blogspot.com/2015/11/top-ten-tuesday-book-to-movie.html" My Top Ten
Yeah I was super surprised about the Obsidian movie news. I worry a lot about the twilight movie effect. Especially since there was an article asking if the town in obsidian is the new forks.
I am the only person who didn’t like the Daughter of Smoke and Bone. I gave up on it because I just couldn’t get into it at all!
I am excited about Fallen and Obsidian!
I’m sure there were others who didn’t like it. I loved it, but I can understand what people wouldn’t like about it. The cast for Fallen are all pretty much unknown so I am excited to see how that plays out. They also finished production on the movie!!
I would so love to see a Heist Society movie!
