books fodder for movies

Why reinvent the wheel? Why should Hollywood come up with clever ideas for new movies when there are so many fun books out there? This isn't the first year that it's happened that many books will be turned into movies, but there are definitely some that I'm super excited about!!

Divergent, Veronica Roth
The Fault in Our Stars, John Green
The Giver, Lois Lowry

At the same time that I'm excited I'm so scared that they're going to get it wrong and ruin these books, especially the latter two!

Which of you beloved books have been turned into movies/are being turned into movies? And were you happy with the movie/are you excited to see it on the big screen?

Thanks @BuzzFeed Books for this list.

For some reason I have little faith in Divergent turning out well. I think they'll succeed in The Fault in Our Stars for some reason. As for the Giver, gosh its been eons since I've read that, and must again! I heard the Maze Runner is coming out as a movie, too. I'll have to hurry up and read that series before then!

Toriafly,
I totally agree!!
We will have to discuss Maze Runner as soon as we both read it--it's on my list too!!
