Eager reader of history, mystery, classics, biographies, steampunk, lit fic, science, scifi, and etc. My reviews are mostly positive--I rarely finish or write about books I don't enjoy. My TBR is too high for that.

From io9: Ten Classic YA Novels that would Make Awesome Movies

A Ring of Endless Light - Madeleine L'Engle My Mother Was Never A Kid (Victoria Martin Trilogy) - Francine Pascal Daughters of Eve - Lois Duncan Chain Letter - Christopher Pike The Grounding of Group 6 - Julian F. Thompson Clive Barker's The Thief of Always - Kris Oprisko, Clive Barker, Gabriel Hernandez The Girl Who Owned a City - O.T. Nelson The Chronicles of Prydain Boxed Set - Lloyd Alexander Have Space Suit—Will Travel - Robert A. Heinlein House of Stairs - William Sleator

I've read only three of these books--Ring of Endless Light, Hanging Out with Cici (now renamed My Mother was Never a Kid, and Have Space Suit Will Travel, but I love each of them enough that I still have my original copies on my bookshelf. Many of the rest of the ten sound great too. From the io9 website article:


Fans have been waiting over 20 years for a movie version of Lois Lowry's The Giver, and we're finally getting one this weekend. But this isn't the only classic novel that's overdue for a movie adaptation. Here are 10 beloved YA novels that would make for incredible movies... and why they probably won't get adapted.


A note: All of these books will be spoiled.
