Well as a Young adult myself, I really do enjoy a good YA book. But some are just so touching, beautiful and amazingly written, that they get a change to hit film. Some of films do well such as Twilight, The Hunger Games, Divergent trilogies, etc. and some tank like Vampire Academy and Mortal Instruments trilogies, either way it goes, us fans are still happy to see our favorite books go film. So below is a list of YA books that are turning film. I think everyone should be on the look out for. Hope you guys enjoy my list and if you don't - feel free to cuss me out in the comments.. Alright let's get this thing on a roll!

#1 Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

We all have read, watched or seen some type of Frankenstein adaption before, well straighten your hats folks, grab a sit and get cozy, because another one is soon to hit theaters this October. The film 'Victor Frankenstein' is another take on Mary Shelley's 1818 novel, directed by Paul McGuigan and written by Max Landis.

The cast is wonderful, we have Daniel Radcliffe playing as Igor, the film is based around Igor's perspective of how everything went down, for Victor Von Frankenstein, James McAvoy will be playing him, lots of people know McAvoy from X-men but he has been in many other beautiful films, if you guys would just go rent The Last King of Scotland, Wanted, or The Conspirator you will be blown away by his acting.

#2 Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

This New York Times bestseller is in the early stages of filming, but that's not gonna stop me from telling you everything I can about it. With 'Peregrine's Home for Peculiars' set to come out Spring 2016, directed by one of my favorites - Tim Burton this will be big and you guys know it!

The film is about a Teenager named Jacob Portman who follows clues to a mysterious island, walking the island Jacob finds Miss Peregrine's School for Peculiar Children, while exploring the abandoned building, he finds out the students were not just ordinary children. Jacob Portman will be played by Asa Butterfield(Hugo), Miss Peregrine by Eva Green(Dark Shadows) and Mr. Barron by Samuel L. Jackson(Avengers) pretty sweet cast huh? yeah y'all are gonna wanna watch this.

#3 The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

The Night Circus is about two magicians grooming their proteges to become the new front faces of the beautiful circus but the competition begins to be to much, things start to unravel and truths are unveiled.

To be honest I haven't read this one yet(on my list too) but doesn't the title and plot just sound exciting, well that's because it is, get ready for this people, great film coming are way. With the film still in the "In Production" stage I can't find a lot, I do that Summit Entertainment bought all rights for TV/film and for script we have Moira Buffini, I haven't seen a lot of her work so I can't say she's good. You guys should familiar of Summit though, they've made many films, which more than half, have hit big marks in theaters, also I'm a fan of of them, so I think The Night Circus is with pretty nice company.

#4 Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

Shadow and Bone is about a young girl living in Russia with new found magic who tries to save her land from an evil, powerful force.

This book is the best, the story is beautiful and I just love it okay. I'm very happy that DreamWorks got the rights. For producing were getting David Heyman you don't know how excited I am, we have all seen how he brought Harry Potter to life, I have faith he'll do the same for Shadow and Bone - I'm like 99.99% sure that everyone who is reading this has seen Harry P. If you have not., Please go rent it you've missed a lot.

#5 The November Criminals by Sam Munson

I'm really excited about this one, the movie is set to come out in mid-early 2016, it will be staring my only favorite female actress Chloë Grace Moretz and Ansel Elgort, he's becoming pretty know in the Hollywood seen, I'm not that familiar with his work since I've only seen one of his movies and I didn't even watch the whole thing, as for Chloë I've seen more than half of her work, she's a brilliant actress so I know she'll play the part well.

The November Criminals is about a young jewish student named Addison Schach and his friend Phoebe investigating the death of their friend Kevin Broadus in dangerous streets of Washington D.C.

Hope you guys enjoyed reading, loving writing to you munchkins! :)


Which one are you most excited for?
