With the vast amount of books made into movies, a lot of people (including myself) are wondering if their favorite books would be made into movies.

Books such as James Patterson's best-selling novel Maximum Ride has already been set to have not only a movie, but a possible YouTube series.

So here's a list of books that I like (and maybe you like or not) that definitely deserve a movie.

The Dangerous Days of Daniel X

Another book from best-selling author James Patterson. After reading this book, there's no doubt this book deserves a movie.

Here's the premise. Young Daniel is not what you would call a regular boy. In fact, he's not even human. He's an alien. An alien bounty hunter. He's here on Earth for two purposes: wipe out the aliens that are on his List of Alien Outlaws (which are, in fact, all put in numerical order by threat level), and to take out the number 1 alien that killed his parents when he was just 3 years old.

This has silver screen written all over it. But that's all in the hands of the author whether he wants more movies based on his books or not.

Artemis Fowl

You should know the story by now. Young Artemis is not exactly a good kid, though. In fact, he'd do anything to get a quick buck, literally. It starts off with him kidnapping the captain of the Lower Elements Police, Holly Short, a fairy elf.

What a good way to start a book, eh? Well, there were rumors back about 14 years ago. And if my math is correct, that's 2001. In fact, there were posters that told us that Nicholas Hoult, famous for his role as R in Warm Bodies and Henry "Hank" McCoy aka Beast in X-Men First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past, was going to play the young anti-hero.

Something tells me that this was fan made. And, of course, there were also rumors that Ender's Game star Asa Butterfield was going to play Artemis. Honestly, I see more of Asa than Nicholas. Don't you think?

So far, it's already been confirmed by the author himself, Mr. Eoin Colfer, that the movie is going to happen, but he also states that there's a missing link in making all this happen. Wonder what it is.

And that's about the only books that I like that deserve a movie. I'm sure there are others but I just can't recall any other books that I like at the moment.

But enough from me. I want to hear from you.

What's one of your favorite books that you think deserves a movie? And if one of your favorite books does get a movie, do you think it will get the kind of reaction that you have toward it?
