Tons of books get made into movies. After all, books are a terrific source of ideas for a story that will become the next popular film. Though the adaptations aren't always what we envisioned, there's something almost magical about seeing a beloved book brought to life on the big screen. Sometimes, it's the other way around, where we've discovered that a movie we enjoy happens to be based on a book. Either way, it can be a treat to experience a story both in book and film.
Two of the movies I'm most anticipating this fall are based on books. Of course, there's part one of the final Harry Potter movie, Deathly Hallows. Accio November 19! Then there's the third film based on the Chronicles of Narnia, Voyage of the Dawn Treader. That's coming out December 10. I'm also looking forward to one day seeing the first Stephanie Plum book become a movie (It's starring Katherine Heigl as Stephanie), and I've heard Stephenie Meyer's book The Host will be made into a movie.
What books do you want to see in film? I would be so thrilled to see one of my favorite trilogies from my teen years, The Darkangel Trilogy by Meredith Pierce, made into film. Having just read the hilarious Undead and Unwed by MaryJanice Davidson, I'd love to see that in film, too. Ok, so both are vampire stories. But they're each amazing in their own ways. Oh, and of course I'd one day love to see The MirrorMasters turned into a movie. Wouldn't we all love to see that happen for our books? Anyway, let me hear your suggestions!
