The Veronica Mars Kickstarter success makes us wonder, what YA book would you raise $2 million to see a movie version of?Confession #1: I never watched Veronica Mars
Confession #2: I would never raise money for someone else to make a movie. Why am I so stingy you ask? Well, for one, it's not like I'm rolling in it. I've got four kids and I'm a stay-at-home mom. For two, movie people make SO MUCH MONEY (most of the time) so why should I shell out? You know how much it costs for me and the hubs to get a babysitter and go to a movie just once???
Okay, I'm done with the money rant.
Just because I probably wouldn't pay someone to make a movie out of a book I love, doesn't mean there aren't TONS of books that I'd love to see made into movies. In fact, almost every book I read I imagine what it would be like on the big screen.
#1: Anna and the French Kiss. (Wait, I used this answer last week!) Who wouldn't want to see Anna's love story unfold in Paris? Of course, if we have Anna, then we'd have to have Lola too.
Etienne St. Clair?
Okay, this guy is actually French, not British, and probably too tall... but who the hey cares???
#2. The Leviathan Trilogy. It would be very difficult (maybe even impossible?) to make these books into a movie, but wouldn't they be SO COOL? I would love to see some of the machines and animals come to life on screen.
#3. The Fallen series and The Hush, Hush Saga. We've had vampire movies, zombie movies, witch movies. Where are the angel movies??? Both of these book series would make great movies. And let's not forget the totally hot male leads. Rawr.
#4. Anything by Ally Carter. Wouldn't her Heist Society or Gallagher Girls series be great movies? Ooh, or maybe a TV series! It would be so fun!
