Dear Hollywood, These YA Books Are READY!

SHARE

With the success of recent YA adaptations including Love, Simon and a heavy slate of upcoming awesomeness including 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?!

 

An Ember in the Ashes series by Sabaa Tahir

AnEmberintheAshes

The Ember series has been in development for what feels like FOREVER! But really, with the A Reaper at the Gates recent release and the New York Times bestseller list series debut – the message is clear: this series is beloved!! The biggest question really is, should Sabaa Tahir’s amazing world be a movie or a wider, more explores TV series?

 

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. The series is also finished so the producers would have a clear idea of end points and could make solid plans how to get there. But most importantly, we’re all SUPER READY FOR JUNE AND DAY ON THE SCREEN?!

 

Royals by Rachel Hawkins

Royals

Netflix is KILLING it with the rom-coms lately AND they’ve also shown an interest in royal movies, what with their Christmas royal movie last year being a social media hit. So it begs the question – has anyone at Netflix read Royals? 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

It’s not even out yet but we’re already desperate for someone to get on board Seafire (see what we did there?!). This would be the best kind of genre busting YA adaptation that could take the world by storm (another sailing pun!). Girls kicking butt, that would require awesome dialogue; fire and water that would require awesome stunts – let’s set sail on this adaptation ASAP (we’re not even sorry!).

 

Lies You Never Told Me by Jennifer Donaldson

LYNTM_online (1)

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.
