Maria V. Snyder is a young adult fantasy author who has written several amazing book series. Her books are filled with unique and interesting magic systems and the historical worlds that she sets them in would make for a beautiful film setting. With interesting characters, action filled plot, and character relationships that you can fall in love with, any of Marie V. Snyder’s books would no doubt be popular as films.

If you haven’t read Maria V. Snyder’s books yet, what are you doing, go read them!

Relentless by Karen Lynch

I’ve said it before and I will say it again, I am in love with this author’s books! While the supernatural world has become a common trope of modern young adult fiction, Karen Lynch manages to make this trope seem new and unique.

With a new species to play with, plenty of action to keep people entertained, and good character developments, her series Relentless would make for an amazing movie series and could easily be adapted into a tv show. Her new book that just recently released has just as much if not more potential for the big screen.

I will be rooting for these books to be turned into films until the day it happens.

Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare

We’ve seen a movie and a tv show of the Immortal Instruments series but nothing of the Clockwork Angel, which in my opinion is the far better book series. With the already established fan base for both the books and the tv series, this seems like an opportunity that shouldn’t be passed up.

The historical time period of this book trilogy would give the film a beautiful setting to work with and with the fandom already in place these movies/tv show would be a definite hit.

Sanctum by Sarah Fine

Sarah Fine’s Guards of the Shadowlands series is a very unique young adult book and, while it deals with some heavier topics, the action packed trilogy would make for an intense and fun tv series. The main character is a strong, take no names, woman and I for one would love to see her on screen.

With a yummy love interest and suspenseful plot lines, this series could easily keep an audience on the edge of their seats waiting for the next episode.

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

With Sarah J Mass’ popularity I’m honestly surprised her books haven’t already been made into films. Her Throne of Glass series in particular seems like a great movie opportunity. With a female assassin and mysterious magical elements this would make for a seriously good movie or tv series.

Female assassin movies seem to be growing in popularity in recent years. Why not add this one to the list!

The Sisters Grimm by Michael Buckley

This younger-young adult series was one that I read and loved all through middle school. It presents a twist on the original Grimm Brother’s fairy tales, placing their stories and characters into a modern world.

With the familiarity of the premise and the fun characters that any person can fall in love with, this series reminds me of a mix between the tv shows Once Upon a Time and Grimm. As the title suggests the series follows a pair of sisters who are descended from the original Grimm brothers. With two sisters, a kick ass grandma, and a whole host of fairy tale characters, these books would make for amazing tv!

Born at Midnight by CC Hunter

These books are popular for a reason and I think their popularity would only increase if they were to be put into film. The world that is built within this series and the interesting twist on a modern day supernatural world would translate amazingly into a tv series.

With the common trope of summer camp and a cast of interesting characters, this has the potential to be a seriously popular show.

The Ranger’s Apprentice by John Flanagan

With the recent popularity of Katniss and her archery skills, I could see this series taking off. These action packed books are filled with interesting characters and even more interesting plot lines. With the popularity of this book series and an already established fan base, these books could make for a movie series that could become one of the classics.

I for one am tired of all the guns and modern warfare and would love to see some old fashioned archery and sword fighting.

Vampire Academy & Bloodlines by Richelle Mead

We have already seen an attempt at a movie for this book series. And while this movie wasn’t terrible it didn’t do the books justice in the slightest.

These two series would make for an absolutely kick ass tv series. There is so much amazing material to work with here and an interesting new world that puts a unique twist on the vampire trope. With the popularity of this book series I’m honestly surprised they haven’t tried to make this into a tv show yet.

The Selection by Kiera Cass

I’m sure I’m not the only one who has been waiting years on a supposed Selection movie/tv series. I can remember a few years ago when people were excited thinking that it was finally going to happen. That excitement has waned to disappointment. I say give the fans what they have been wanting!

This trilogy would make for an amazing tv series. I hope that people realize this series full potential and make it happen before fans get overly annoyed with the delay.

Final Thoughts

If you haven’t already read these books I highly recommend checking them out. For those who have read them, do you agree with my picks? What books would you like to see on the big screen?

  1. I haven’t read Touch Of Power yet but I have loved other books by the author and definitely hope to check it out soon. I agree that the historical setting of the Clockwork Angel book would make a wonderful setting for a supernatural TV series. And I so hope that TOG gets adapted one day. You are right that it’s odd that it hasn’t been yet.
