The Monday Poll: YA Book-to-Movie Wish List

by flickr user Q8y_dream
Good morning, Hub readers!

Last week, we asked who your favorite animal or pet in YA lit was. It’s probably no surprise, but Hedwig from the Harry Potter series by JK Rowling won by a landslide. In second and third, respectively, were Manchee from the Chaos Walking series by Patrick Ness and Mogget from the Abhorsen series by Garth Nix. You can see detailed results for all of our previous polls in the Polls Archive. Thanks to all of you who voted!

The Avengers had an amazing opening weekend at the box office, bringing in $200.3 million in the US and setting a new record for a movie’s first three days, even beating Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. It’s gotten us thinking about movie adaptations of textual materials again, so this week, we want to know which YA book (that hasn’t already been optioned) you most want to see made into a movie. Vote in the poll below, and leave a comment if there’s a YA book you’re dying to see on the big screen that we’ve left out!

Which YA book do you most want to see made into a movie?

  • The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater (23%, 33 Votes)
  • The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart (19%, 28 Votes)
  • Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins (17%, 25 Votes)
  • Incarceron by Catherine Fisher (14%, 20 Votes)
  • The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin (11%, 16 Votes)
  • Across the Universe by Beth Revis (10%, 14 Votes)
  • Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys (6%, 8 Votes)

Total Voters: 145

  1. I just finished The Scorpio Races and I immediately thought “Someone HAS to make this a movie.” It’s the perfect combination of exciting action and compelling characters.

    • I think The Scorpio Races would make a great movie! Much as I love some of the other titles, I’m not sure how well they would translate into films.

      • I’ve not read The Scorpio Races yet, but it’s definitely on my to-read list, as I’ve heard nothing but great things! Anyway, I have good news for you =) The book was picked up by Warner Bros. almost as recently as it was published! David Katzenberg and Seth Grahame-Smith (who has two YA novels heading to the big screen himself) will produce under KatzSmith Productions. Little more is known about the film, but it’s definitely been optioned and has a good chance of making it to the big screen one day! If you want to read more about it or see our whole list of 60+ YA movie adaptation, I’ve attached the link in the comment below =)

  2. Even though I always find the movie adaptations of the books I’ve read to be less fulfilling than the actual books (as do most I assume), I must admit I am a huge sucker for them!! So for me, despite the mass amount of options out there that exist, I really wish they’d adapt the Fablehaven series. So magical! But did you know that both The Scorpio Races and Incarceron have been optioned. We recently took a big look at all the YA and MG books that have a movie in the works (over 60) if you want to have a look:
