YA Movie Rights Being Optioned

It's been a while since we last rounded up a list of YA novels that have been optioned for film. Here's some more recent novels that you could see making their way to the screen.


And our very own...

Amanda grew up on a big farm in a small town with one stoplight, one school, and a handful of imaginary friends.She would’ve gone to college forever, but eight years and five majors tested her advisor’s patience. So she moved to Germany to explore creepy castles before landing in Spain where she’s perfecting her Flamenco.

  1. Whoooo, cool! Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead has also been optioned recently (I blogged about it. I found it on Richelle's blog).

    Super exciting to see YA making way like this! I hope we see all of those on the big screen! :D

  4. I would love to see all of these as movies. The Lonely Hearts Club would be too much fun to see! And Fallen, just epic! We'll just have to see how many will be ruined by Miley. Ugh.

  5. NO WAY, the DUFF is going to be a movie?!?! I haven't even read it yet and I already can't wait to see it!!

    That is beyond exciting, CONGRAYS Kody!

  6. If the DUFF winds up on the big screen, I'm going to make DUFF shirts and lead a troop of DUFF-shirt-wearing girls into the theater, possibly chanting something obnoxious.

    Just so you know.

  7. YAY DUFF!!! Congrats Kody!!

    I can't wait!

    I also need to read Heist Society and A Match Made in High School. The more YA titles I discover, the less I want to read anything else :( And that's bad, I really should try to multi-genre :(

    Oh well! YA ROCKS!

  8. just want to mention that most of these books are just optioned -- which means the "option" to make the film has been bought, but they won't necessarily be greenlighted. therefore, we should harness the powers of collective optimistic telepathy to get them in theaters :)

  9. This has been a growing and exciting trend in YA/MG. It's always fun to see your favorite characters come to life on screen.

  11. It would be interesting to see just how they would translate Incarceron to the big screen.
    And I could see The Lonely Hearts Club being into a Disney Channel movie for sure.

  14. Look DUFF! Even though it's not out yet, it's being optioned for a movie which is awesome! Very exciting. The rest to see are exciting also if they are going to be a movie. :D

  16. The Giver is also gonna be a movie (I hope!). But I love book to movie movies. Always gives me a good comparison for rating.
