Think of the pretty shots the filmmakers could get of the area! And the romance is so amazing, I know I'd swoon a million times over St. Clair and Anna. </span><br /><span style="font-family: Verdana;"><br /></span> <span style="font-family: Verdana;"><b>Kelly's pick</b>: <i>Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta</i></span><br /><span style="font-family: Verdana;">This book had such an interesting plot line, as well as lots of flashbacks and would be a great mystery movie of sorts. A movie might also help me keep all of the characters straight, which I had trouble with while reading. It's such a great story of the power of family and&nbsp;friends. Also: Australian accents!</span><br /><span style="font-family: Verdana;"></span><br /><span style="font-family: Verdana;"><b>Jen's pick</b>: <i>The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith</i></span><br /><span style="font-family: Verdana;">I think this book would translate wonderfully into a movie. It takes place over twenty-four hours so too much wouldn't be left out. I think it would be a cute chick-flick which I kind of love.<br /><br /><b>Lori's pick</b>:<i>&nbsp;</i></span><span style="font-family: Verdana;"><i>Fin &amp; Lady by by Cathleen Schine.</i>&nbsp; It would make an interesting movie because the character of Lady is so interesting to watch and it's fun to see Fin develop from a boy into her protector.&nbsp; Think a cross between Auntie Mame and Almost Famous.</span><br /><div class="yj6qo ajU"><div class="ajR" data-tooltip="Show trimmed content" id=":1mq" role="button" tabindex="0"><img class="ajT" src="https://mail.google.com/mail/u/1/images/cleardot.gif" /></div></div><span style="font-family: Verdana;"><br /><b>Jamie's pick</b>:<i> The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater</i>: I pretty much think this would be a kickass movie and very atmospheric. Let's make this happen please!</span><br /><span style="font-family: Verdana;"><br /></span> <span style="font-family: Verdana;"><b>Tahleen's pick</b>: Keeping with the YA theme, <i>52 Reasons to Hate My Father by Jessica Brody</i>. Because <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YjWYB327yHc&amp;noredirect=1">this trailer</a>. I'm honestly still waiting for this to happen. (Also, in case anyone is interested, as I was looking for this trailer I stumbled upon a <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jpQK4sLfk1A">book trailer for Brody's <i>The Karma Club</i></a>, and one Deepak Chopra made a special guest appearance. What???)</span><br /><span style="font-family: Verdana;"><br /></span> <span style="font-family: Verdana;"><b>Julia's pick</b>: <i>The His Dark Materials Trilogy by Philip Pullman</i>, <b>except one that doesn't suck</b>. I can't even claim that The Golden Compass sucks because I can't bring myself to watch it, but I have heard the tales and they horrify me. That and apparently they filmed the ending the correct way but it was "too much" for audiences. So being greedy I want it done right. <b>Paula agrees. </b></span><br /><span style="font-family: Verdana;"><br /></span> <span style="font-family: Verdana;"><b>Julia's pick</b>: <i>The Desperate Duchess series by Eloisa James</i></span><br /><span style="font-family: Verdana;">Moving away from YA for a second, I have to include this series. It's like Desperate Housewives of the Georgian era. I think it would make for a great TV miniseries as it has storylines that carry over between each book though with couples that are the main focus of each book. Man I need to reread that...</span><br /><span style="font-family: Verdana;"><br /><b>Bridget's Pick</b>: <i>11/22/63 by Stephen King</i>--I think this would work really well as a movie if they got all the late-50s/early-60s details right, as well as the casting. I could see it being a big blockbuster if it was done right, or maybe a miniseries like The Stand or The Shining. </span><br /><br /><span style="font-family: Verdana;"><b>Jana's pick</b>: <i>Renegade by J.A. Souders</i></span><br /><span style="font-family: Verdana;">The scenery in this book is gorgeous. A city under the sea? YES. And the people are not mermaids! They are actual humans. And then a surface dweller infiltrates and falls in love with one of them and tries to save her. The crazy action and suspense, combined with the fun they could have with the movie set would make this an amazing movie!&nbsp;</span><br /><br /><br /><i>Do you agree with any of our picks?
