The Date A Book team recently took to the Twitter Polls and asked you to #CastYAVote on the YA books you would like to see adapted for the screen.

Here is the definitive countdown of YA faves you would like to see adapted for the silver screen!

7) Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell

We can see it already – the 1980s nostalgia, the shared mix-tapes, and of course, Eleanor and Park themselves. This book is just begging to be made into a killer movie that would make John Hughes himself proud.

6) Caraval by Stephanie Garber

Magic, mystery, adventure – it all seems like the perfect combination for a film, and YA readers seem to think so too!

Dream Casting: Brendon Urie as Legend



5) Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

We all want to hang out with the Six of Crows gang, so naturally we want to see them on screen too. The sooner the better.

Two words: Visual. Effects!

3) Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

With whispers about a Red Queen movie in the works we are all dying to see this series made in a film franchise to rival The Hunger Games ASAP – mostly because we all want to play Mare and kick some serious butt on screen.

Dream Casting: …Me. I want to play Mare.


2) Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor

If this list is anything to go by, adventurous YA fantasy novel sure do make for great movies, and Strange The Dreamer is perhaps the best candidate of the bunch. A orphaned junior librarian on a quest for a mythic city – sign us up!

1) Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco

The mystery, the intrigue, and most of all the flirting. We love to see a dashing young heroine take pride of place on the red carpet and who better to take that place than the brilliant Audrey Rose? (Plus, we want to be able to stare at Thomas Cresswell…)
