Dear Hollywood, These YA Books Are READY!

SHARE

With the success of recent YA adaptation like Love, Simon, To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, The Darkest Minds, and The Hate U Give – we gotta ask the question: why is Hollywood sleeping on these amazing books that are SCREAMING for adaptation?!

 

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

Anna-and-the-French-Kiss-COVER

Ever since To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before launched on Netflix we’ve been dying for more beloved YA rom-coms to grace our screens. Can you IMAGINE an Anna and the French Kiss Netflix series?!

 

An Ember in the Ashes series by Sabaa Tahir

AnEmberintheAshes

This is basically the perfect series to fill the Game of Thrones-shaped hole the final season is about to leave in our hearts. Even though we’re honestly we’re a little bit alarmed at the idea of experiencing all the Ember emotions on screen.

 

The Legend series by Marie Lu

Legend

Another series that has been taking the slow road to the screen, the Legend series is sadly super relevant and timely. But honestly, we’re all SUPER READY FOR JUNE AND DAY ON THE SCREEN AND WE NEED IT NOW!

 

Prince Charming by Rachel Hawkins

prince-charming

Netflix is KILLING it with the rom-coms lately AND they’ve also shown an interest in royal movies. So it begs the question – has anyone at Netflix read Prince Charming? And if not, what are you waiting for? This book would be a delightful rom-com movie romp and bonus, Scotland setting!

 

Seafire by Natalie C Parker

Seafire-New-Cover

 

Pretty sure everyone is on board (see what we did there??) with a Seafire movie. This would be the best kind of genre busting YA adaptation that could take the world by storm (another sailing pun!). Girls kicking butt. Fire and water stunts. Let’s set sail on this adaptation ASAP.

 

Lies You Never Told Me by Jennifer Donaldson

Lies You Never Told Me_Final Paperback Cover

 

With no Pretty Little Liars or Scandal on screens to keep us GASPING each week, Lies You Never Told Me could absolutely feel the void. Even before the jaw dropping finale, this book has some serious twists and turns that could absolutely make it appointment viewing.
