    The House Tibet by Georgia Savage. Read this years ago: I’m still touched by the big sister-little brother bond and their struggle for survival.

    I would love to see Stephen King’s Dark Tower series get the big screen treatment. But it it would be a tough job for whoever’s brave enough.

    One Day by David Nicholls. It’s just begging to be made into a film, would be like When Harry met Sally except soo much better.

    This isn’t going to be a popular choice, but Iceberg Slim’s Pimp would make a terrific movie. Great characters and a terrific story- it could be fantastic.

    My favorite book I read is a movie The Stand by Steven King. I would like to see Coyote Blue or Practical Demon Keeping because the made me laugh. Tourist Season would be good also.

  10. 10 toeknee July 2, 2010 at 10:16 pm

    Time travellers wife, the book was far superior to the film…

  11. 11 Vanessa July 2, 2010 at 7:25 pm

    I’d love to see how someone could adapt “The Eyre Affair” by Jasper Fforde. I’m not at all sure it’d be possible, but then people said that about American Psycho and The Lovely Bones!

  12. 12 Letessha July 2, 2010 at 7:23 pm

    My fave childhood book is Hansel and Gretal. I think that they should make a true to the book movie for that.

  13. 13 Donna K July 2, 2010 at 7:17 pm

    The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe.

  14. 14 Shelbie Johnston July 2, 2010 at 6:16 pm

    wow, most of my fav books have been made into movies. And usually, the books are way better 🙂 I guess I’d like to see the Janet Evanovich book series made into a movie 🙂 tweeting @sweepscat713 By the way, I have the book LOvely Bones, just have not read it yet!

  15. 15 JoshUK July 1, 2010 at 6:13 pm

    Many of the Terry Pratchett Discworld series.

  16. 16 hannah evans July 1, 2010 at 2:13 pm

    I would like a remake of the Faraway Tree by Enid Blyton!

  17. 17 Blake Kaplan July 1, 2010 at 1:54 am

    Tale of Two Cities

  18. 18 Diane June 29, 2010 at 8:38 pm

    To Kill A Mockingbird I would say..

  19. 19 Eric June 29, 2010 at 5:11 pm

    second chances. Got to love them…

    Their eyes were watching God by Zorz N. Hurston

  22. 22 Alan Johnson June 29, 2010 at 4:10 pm

    I’d love a remake of Jurassic Park, IN 3D

  23. 23 Stuart McKenzie June 29, 2010 at 3:53 pm

    Russell Brands Booky Wook would make for a very interesting film adaptation. You couldn’t make up some of the things in there!

  24. 24 Shannon Schulte June 29, 2010 at 3:51 pm

    Perhaps a Tale of Two Cities

  25. 25 Kimberly Flickinger June 29, 2010 at 3:50 pm

    The book was one of the best I have ever read, and I am looking forward to seeing the movie!

    Following on twitter @kaflickinger74

  26. 26 Jas643 June 29, 2010 at 2:51 pm

    This is the film I have been waiting for, the book was brilliant!

  27. 27 Melanie Clarke June 29, 2010 at 2:48 pm

    Tunnel Vision by Keith Lowe … about a bloke with a mild obsession with the London Underground who gets a tad drunk on the eve of his wedding and bets that he can get round every single underground station in 20 hours. His passport, honeymoon tickets etc are hidden along the way & it’s vital he finds them all before his wedding. It’s a brilliant, funny read and I reckon it would make a fantastic Brit-flick 🙂 x

  28. 28 Denise S June 29, 2010 at 7:55 am

    loved the book would like to see it on the screen hope they do it well.

  29. 29 Steve Johnson June 28, 2010 at 10:45 pm

    I’ve read Flight of the Intruder loads of times and would love for it to be re-adapted as I can’t force myself to watch any more films starring Danny Glover…

  30. 30 Gail S June 28, 2010 at 7:20 pm

    I think some of the Tom Clancy books would be wonderful films. Alot of action, suspense and drama!

  31. 31 Masoud June 28, 2010 at 5:49 pm

    I read a book called The Book Thief last summer and it was incredible.

  32. 32 Cheryl W. June 28, 2010 at 5:48 pm

    Well my all time favorite book is Summer of the Monkeys, but it was made into a film a long time ago. One of my recent favorites is The Help by Kathryn Stockett. Surely due to it’s overwhelming success it is destined to be a movie, if so, I hope they do it justice.

  33. 33 Lora June 28, 2010 at 3:55 pm

    You’ve probably not heard of it but Confessions of a Justified Sinner by James Hogg, if done well, would make a great eerie thriller

  34. 34 Danielle P @pontowd June 28, 2010 at 2:49 pm

    I love reading the bible. I would love to see the story of Jacob portrayed on the big screen

  35. 35 Kelly Ward June 28, 2010 at 2:31 pm

    oooh I would love to see this film, I read the book twice! As for which book I would like to see on screen, it has to be my childhood favourite from Enid Blyton – The magic faraway tree.

  36. 36 chris swan June 28, 2010 at 1:26 pm

    I like the Karen Moning Fever series books. They might be making them into movies soon though. But I sure would like it. Its such a mixture science fiction, fantasy, romance, & mystery.

  37. 37 Jo Bryan June 28, 2010 at 1:19 pm

    Without a doubt if they could do it justice, I would like to see James Herbert The Magic Cottage made into a film, a real fairy tale that could now be given the CGI work it would need.

  38. 38 Susan Nisar June 28, 2010 at 1:16 pm

    A Thousand Splendid suns – Khaled Hosseini (it’s already in production I think and due for release in 2011 – I wonder if Hollywood with give it a happier ending…I hope so, poor Miriam)

  39. 39 Michael Montgomery June 28, 2010 at 1:12 pm

    Actually my “ol’ favorite” is somewhere in the mix of being made right now with the grandmaster Mr P. Jackson producing the goods! That’s The Hobbit dear reader … a book that’s tatty from many reads and is now being enjoyed by my own younglings! 🙂

  40. 40 Lisa June 28, 2010 at 1:11 pm

    Little Red Riding Hood should come out, and in 3D. Ron Perilman could be the wolf.

  41. 41 karmaperle June 28, 2010 at 1:09 pm

    Cross Stitch by Diana Gabaldon – have read the outlander series over and over. There are rumours of a TV Series but I think would make a fantastic film.

  42. 42 Coistycat (Donna B) June 28, 2010 at 1:06 pm

    My favourite book is Free Agent by Jeremy Duns, i would love to see it made for the big screen but will have to settle for my TV as the BBC have bought the TV Adaption rights for this & the further two books in his trilogy.

    • 43 Geri June 29, 2010 at 3:54 pm

      Had deja vu when Red Riding was televised, as I’d read the books by David Pearce a while back and KNEW what was going to happen but couldn’t figure out why LOL. I think it’sa pity that so much of Lynda La Plante is televised and not done as full length films, so I’ll suggest her latest book Silent Scream.
