RTW: Kickstarter Book-to-Movie

Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question that begs to be answered. In the comments, you can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.

This Week: 
The Veronica Mars Kickstarter success makes us wonder, what YA book would you raise $2 million to see a movie version of?

This was a tricky one for me because there are a lot of YA novels that I love that actually are being made into movies (City of Bones, Divergent, The Book Thief) and I tend to be really wary of my favorite books being made into movies. 

I've literally been dreaming about Tamora Pierce novels being made into movies for years so those are my number one pick. I'd be happy with Song of the Lioness, but I would really love to see the Immortals series on the big screen (Wild Magic, Wolf-Speaker, Emperor Mage, and Realms of the Gods). I think they would make beautiful movies. 

A couple other books that I think would make great movies and would totally support are Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins and Wake by Lisa McMann.
