Top Ten Books I'd Like to See Made Into Movies

I first saw this meme on Suey's blog. The Broke and the Bookish is hosting a meme, which asks for top ten books that I would love to see made into movies. Though I firmly believe movies ruin books, I still have a small wish to see the following books be made into movies.
  1. The Giver by Lois Lowry - IMDB says that the movie will release in 2011. I have yet to hear more details.
  2. Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card - Make the movie already. Instead of making a movie, they made comic books out of the series. I think this will be one of the movies where I am willing to stand up in line at midnight to watch the first show.
  3. The Undomestic Goddess by Sophie Kinsella - I think this will be a damn funny movie.
  4. The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman - No words. Just waiting for the movie...
  5. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak - I am keeping my fingers crossed for whenever they make a movie out of this book, they don't ruin it.
  6. The Hunger Games (Book 1) by Suzanne Collins - I know they are making the movie and they already have some cast finalized.
  7. Serious Men by Manu Joseph - Okay...this book...I don't know why but I think this will make an excellent movie. I enjoyed the book very much.
  8. Lawn Boy by Gary Paulsen - I think this will be a cute children's movie. I chucked when I listened to the audio book.
  9. A Great & Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray - This book is like Harry Potter. The differences are that the protagonist is a female and it is a trilogy unlike HP, which is a Heptalogy (had to google that).
  10. Life of Pi by Yann Martel - I am very excited about this movie. Tobey Maguire, Irrfan Khan, and Tabu (3 great actors) are part of the cast. Irrfan and Tabu were great in Namesake and I can't wait to see this one.
That's it for now. See ya!
