More YA Novels Optioned for the Big Screen

It appears that Twilight and The Hunger Games are trendsetters, paving the way for more young adult novels to be made into feature films.

According tothe L.A. Times,a number of other young adult novels are being optioned for films, including hits like Trylle Trilogy and The False Prince. Here’s a look at some of the other novels producers are considering.

Considering I haven’t heard of any of these novels, I doubt they’ll have the success and impact on the big screen that Twilight and The Hunger Games have had. It will also be interesting to see how many of these books actually make it that far — since right now, they’re only being optioned. It’s always fun to see your favorite book translated to film, but are the movie-book-adaptations starting to become a little overkill? What do you guys think?

  1. I’ve never heard of the Trylle Trilogy either, but that book cover looks intriguing! I know that P. C. Cast’s House of Night series has done very well (I’ve only read the first two books so far), I wonder if those will get picked up.

    Interesting! I may have to look in to this book for my kids. They’re just finishing a great book called “Dr. Fuddle and the Gold Baton” by Warren L. Woodruff, you can check it out and get it right from the website http://www.drfuddle.com/. They loved it! This may be their next one, thanks for the suggestion!

    Reallly looking forward to seeing Tiger’s Curse on the screen! And the rest of the series. A formula involving tigers and India with hot guys is a rare treat!
