Books to Become Movies

As I was watching The Hunger Games World Premiere Red Carpet last night, and as I was blogging about the City of Bones movie details, I was thinking to myself "What other books are going to be movies?", and "What books do I have to read BEFORE the movie comes out?". Well, you're in luck because I have some of the listed books down below that are going to be movies!

Now, when books become movies, I get a bit excited (just kidding, I freak out all the time and always talk about it like I'm doing with The Hunger Games). I get really excited because the characters that I read are actually going to be on screen and acted! Now that just makes me so happy! :)

I have posted many other movie news on this blog, though I have only blogged about Beautiful Creatures, The Host, and City of Bones. Now, you get to see the OTHER books I've been excited for, but movie-wise, hasn't been moving very much.

Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead:
St. Vladimir’s Academy isn’t just any boarding school—it’s a hidden place where vampires are educated in the ways of magic and half-human teens train to protect them. Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, a bodyguard for her best friend Lissa, a Moroi Vampire Princess. They’ve been on the run, but now they’re being dragged back to St. Vladimir’s—the very place where they’re most in danger. . . .
Rose and Lissa become enmeshed in forbidden romance, the Academy’s ruthless social scene, and unspeakable nighttime rituals. But they must be careful lest the Strigoi—the world’s fiercest and most dangerous vampires—make Lissa one of them forever.

This is the first series that made me fall in love with books. Why shouldn't I be excited for the movie?! Nothing has been happening much lately, though. No casting, no studio, no nothing. The Producer, Mike Preger (Preger Entertainment) is trying to look for a studio, and it isn't going very well. Here is a note from Mike Preger on the Vampire Academy Official Movie Facebook page on what is happening. It was posted on February 8th, 2012.

Matched by Ally Condie:
On her seventeenth birthday, Cassia meets her Match. Society dictates he is her perfect partner for life. Except he's not. In Cassia's society, Officials decide who people love. How many children they have. Where they work. When they die. But, as Cassia finds herself falling in love with another boy, she is determined to make some choices of her own. And that's when her whole world begins to unravel...

I haven't read this book yet, though I have it on my bookshelf, waiting for me to touch it. But I've heard some really great things on this book! Nothing has really been happening with this movie, though it is still in development. The film rights are to Disney and Offspring.

Divergent by Veronica Roth:

In Beatrice Prior’s dystopian Chicago world, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue—Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is—she can’t have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.
During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles alongside her fellow initiates to live out the choice they have made. Together they must undergo extreme physical tests of endurance and intense psychological simulations, some with devastating consequences. As initiation transforms them all, Tris must determine who her friends really are—and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes exasperating boy fits into the life she's chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she's kept hidden from everyone because she's been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers unrest and growing conflict that threaten to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves . . . or it might destroy her.

This is such a great book, and I can tell why it's going to be made into a movie! I guess all the "horrible societies" get made into a movie (like Matched up there). But really, it's action packed, romance, and had everything! The films rights are to Summit Entertainment; Reg Wagon, a production company, is also signed to work on it; and Even Daugherty, screenwriter, wrote a screenplay for Divergent. No casting news has been released.

Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor:
Around the world, black handprints are appearing on doorways, scorched there by winged strangers who have crept through a slit in the sky.

In a dark and dusty shop, a devil's supply of human teeth grown dangerously low.

And in the tangled lanes of Prague, a young art student is about to be caught up in a brutal otherwordly war.

Meet Karou. She fills her sketchbooks with monsters that may or may not be real; she's prone to disappearing on mysterious "errands"; she speaks many languages--not all of them human; and her bright blue hair actually grows out of her head that color. Who is she? That is the question that haunts her, and she's about to find out.

When one of the strangers--beautiful, haunted Akiva--fixes his fire-colored eyes on her in an alley in Marrakesh, the result is blood and starlight, secrets unveiled, and a star-crossed love whose roots drink deep of a violent past. But will Karou live to regret learning the truth about herself? 

This seems like a VERY good book! Not even kidding! I have it on my tablet, and I'm going to start it very soon. I haven't seen any real movie news on this, though I DO know that the movie is in Development. Movie rights are unknown at the time.

The Maze Runner by James Dashner:
When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his first name. His memory is blank. But he’s not alone. When the lift’s doors open, Thomas finds himself surrounded by kids who welcome him to the Glade—a large, open expanse surrounded by stone walls.

Just like Thomas, the Gladers don’t know why or how they got to the Glade. All they know is that every morning the stone doors to the maze that surrounds them have opened. Every night they’ve closed tight. And every 30 days a new boy has been delivered in the lift.

Thomas was expected. But the next day, a girl is sent up—the first girl to ever arrive in the Glade. And more surprising yet is the message she delivers.

Thomas might be more important than he could ever guess. If only he could unlock the dark secrets buried within his mind.

To be honest, I have an urge to NOT read this book. It isn't that it's a bad book or anything, but that EVERYONE has read it. For example, my friends have all read this book and are saying that it's going to be a movie. Yet, when I SAY that a book is going to be a movie (I.e. City of Bones), they don't read it. It really frustrates me, though I can't really complain ....
The Film rights are unknown right now.

Incarceron by Catherine Fisher:
Incarceron is a prison so vast that it contains not only cells and corridors, but metal forests, dilapidated cities, and wilderness. It has been sealed for centuries, and only one man has ever escaped. Finn has always been a prisoner here. Although he has no memory of his childhood, he is sure he came from Outside. His link to the Outside, his chance to break free, is Claudia, the warden's daughter, herself determined to escape an arranged marriage. They are up against impossible odds, but one thing looms above all: Incarceron itself is alive . . . 

I actually haven't heard of this book, though it does seem very good. All I know is that Taylor Lautner is going to be the lead roll in it! *Screams* The Film Rights are to Fox 2000.

Delirium by Lauren Oliver:
They say that the cure for Love will make me happy and safe forever. And I’ve always believed them. Until now. Now everything has changed. Now, I’d rather be infected with love for the tiniest sliver of a second than live a hundred years smothered by a lie. 

I've heard of this book, and I have it on my tablet. I'm going to read it very soon, as I hear it's a VERY good book! The Film Rights are with Fox 2000.

Pure by Julianna Baggott:
We know you are here, our brothers and sisters . . .
Pressia barely remembers the Detonations or much about life during the Before. In her sleeping cabinet behind the rubble of an old barbershop where she lives with her grandfather, she thinks about what is lost-how the world went from amusement parks, movie theaters, birthday parties, fathers and mothers . . . to ash and dust, scars, permanent burns, and fused, damaged bodies. And now, at an age when everyone is required to turn themselves over to the militia to either be trained as a soldier or, if they are too damaged and weak, to be used as live targets, Pressia can no longer pretend to be small. Pressia is on the run.

Burn a Pure and Breathe the Ash . . .
There are those who escaped the apocalypse unmarked. Pures. They are tucked safely inside the Dome that protects their healthy, superior bodies. Yet Partridge, whose father is one of the most influential men in the Dome, feels isolated and lonely. Different. He thinks about loss-maybe just because his family is broken; his father is emotionally distant; his brother killed himself; and his mother never made it inside their shelter. Or maybe it's his claustrophobia: his feeling that this Dome has become a swaddling of intensely rigid order. So when a slipped phrase suggests his mother might still be alive, Partridge risks his life to leave the Dome to find her.

When Pressia meets Partridge, their worlds shatter all over again.

I have this on my reading list .... I just can't get to it yet ;) Seem very interesting though! The Film rights are to Fox 2000.

Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater:
From a dazzlingly talented young writer, a haunting and original supernatural romance in the vein of TWILIGHT.

For years, Grace has watched the wolves in the woods behind her house. One yellow-eyed wolf--her wolf--is a chilling presence she can't seem to live without. Meanwhile, Sam has lived two lives: In winter, the frozen woods, the protection of the pack, and the silent company of a fearless girl. In summer, a few precious months of being human . . . until the cold makes him shift back again.

Now, Grace meets a yellow-eyed boy whose familiarity takes her breath away. It's her wolf. It has to be. But as winter nears, Sam must fight to stay human--or risk losing himself, and Grace, forever.

Uh ... I'm a iffy on this. My friend read it and said it was OKAY. Though when the movie comes out, I probably will. Hahaa! The Film rights are to Unique Features.

Also, as usual, City of Bones, The Host, and Beautiful Creatures is also with these.

What do you guys think? Will you guys be reading these books?!
