The Monday Poll: Film Adaptation Worries

by flickr user puuikibeach
Good morning, Hub readers!

In our last poll, we asked which system of grouping people from a YA novel you thought was best. The votes are in, and you’ve overwhelmingly selected the four houses from the Harry Potter universe. The five factions from Divergent came in second–it seems like you want your social organization to be partially determined by choice and partially by personality. You can see detailed results for all of our previous polls in the Polls Archive. Thanks to all of you who voted!

This week, we’re thinking movie adaptations again! We’ve asked which movie you’ve liked best, which you’re most looking forward to, and which book you think most deserves an adaptation, but this time we want to know which YA novel you’d least like to see made into a movie. Maybe you just don’t think it’s suited for the silver screen, or maybe the book means so much to you that you’re nervous about anyone else’s treatment of it. In any case, vote in the poll below, or leave a comment with another book that you want to remain unadapted.

    I really hope they never make an attempt at The Scorpio Races. I feel like as a movie it would just become another horse movie, and Maggie Stiefvater’s book is so, so, so much more than that. The haunting tone, the amazing imagery (be honest, what you build in your head can never be duplicated on screen) and the casting would be impossible. While it’s not a slow book, it would be a slow movie. It would never work. And I love it for that.
