Top Ten Tuesday: Movies?

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.  This week the topic is...

Top Ten Books You'd Like To See Made Into A Movie

 This is a tough one.  I admit, I enjoy seeing the movie version of a book, but at the same time I'm typically disappointed.  There aren't too many movies that have been comparable to books.  I find the movie versions are so off that I don't enjoy them as much as someone who hasn't read the book.  Anyway, here is my top ten that I would like to see made into movies (in no particular order):

1. Partials by Dan Wells.  I think the premise of this book would make a great movie.  It has action, adventure and of course, a love story.  I would LOVE to see a movie version!

2. You Have Seven Messages by Stewart Lewis.  I can imagine this being a very heartfelt and touching movie.  It would probably jump around a bit, but if made right it would be worth it.

3. Birthmarked by Caragh M. O'Brien.  There is just something about post-apocalyptic novels that grabs my attention.  I really think any of these would make great action-filled movies.

4. The Mockingbirds by Daisy Whitney.  This particular story needs to be told.  I think telling it in the form of a respectably made movie would make it hit home and cause people to come to a much needed realization.

5.  The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin.  A great book.  Could be a great movie too.

6. Firelight by Sophie Jordan.  Imagine how pretty the dragons would be?!  I can just see the amazing graphics in my mind.  It would make a very enchanting movie.

Okay, it isn't a top ten, but it is my top six!  What books are on your list to be made in to movies? Let me know in the comments section below.
