Top 10 Tuesday: Rewind!

Top Ten Tuesday
Top Ten Tuesday REWIND:
Books I Want to See Turn Into Movies
(Feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish)

Today we're picking a topic we missed or would like to revisit which made me pause...what do I want to talk about today?  There are so many teen books being turned into movies this year that I thought I'd throw a few of my favorites into the discussion for what needs to come out next. (Sidenote: I have the unique ability to separate the book from the movie.  I rarely get super disappointed if the story changes, scenes are left out, or the characters don't look the way I imagined.  As long as the integrity of the story is intact, I'm usually a happy camper.)
1) Mothership by Martin Leicht and Isla Neal
There's humor, there's thrills, and, of course, there's aliens.  What more could you want out of a movie?

2) Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
Celaena totally kicks butt.  I'd love to see her take on the kingdom's best assassins on the silver screen.

3) Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein
A WWII movie with two fantastic female characters in the lead.

4) Enchanted by Alethea Kontis
Let's jump on the fairytale band wagon with this new title that blends them all together.

5) Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake
A ghost story with some substance, and a whole lot of screams.

6) Etiquette & Espionage by Gail Carriger
We need more steampunk in hollywood.

7) If I Stay by Gayle Foreman
For a major cry-fest.

8) Splintered by A.G. Howard
It's trippy...it's romantic...it's gothic...it's Alice.  Enough said.

9) Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi
Sigh.  Now this one I'm particular...if they don't pick the right Perry, I wouldn't see it.

10) For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreaund
A perfect mix of dystopia and romance.

This was harder than I thought it would be to narrow it down to ten.  So just for kicks, there's always Anna and the French Kiss, The Statistical Probability of Love at First SightThe Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks, Cinder, Hourglass, and The Selection.
