The BIG list of Books Into Movies

I have put together a list of books that have been made into movies from primarily the Young Adult genre.  Periodically I have included a book/movie that is more appropriate for 14+.  If I believe a movie to include content that is more appropriate for an older teenager I have included this symbol ***.  I will add to this list periodically so please feel free to comment or email me with further suggestions and I will do my best to add to the list in a timely manner.

What a great list! Some of the books there I didn't know had been made into movies!

Thanks for compiling these lists! They'll be a great resource!

Dazzling Mage said...

This is a great list! I knew a lot of movies were based on books, but wow! And I didn't know 10 Things I Hate About You was based on Taming of the Shrew!

Maybe you should add the Jane Austen books? And Clueless movie, since it was based on Austen's Emma.

But Awesome list!

Lily Child said...

Wowzers! That is one big list! :P

Lindsey said...

HEHE thanks everyone I am glad you enjoyed the list.

Dassling Mage - I did include Clueless in my list I just used the title of "Emma" for alphabetical purposes. Maybe I should change that lol.

Great list chick.

ladystorm said...

I believe they are making a movie of Fallen, Hunger Games and I am Number Four if you want to look them up. I also think they are thinking about Beautiful Creatures but I am not sure of that one.

The Book Guru said...

So call me an idiot today but I read this email trying to figure out what exactly you were "number four" of and then finally clued in that you must be talking about a book thats been made into a movie lol.

Thanks for the suggestions I will definitely be adding those soon! A movie of Hunger Games would be absolutely awesome!
