Let's Discuss: Books Becoming Movies

I'm that person that always insists the book was better than the movie. Every now and then I do a Google search for YA books that have been optioned for film. It's a great way to add to my TBR because if they're turning into movies, the books must be good, right?

My most recent search contains a few titles I haven't read yet, so I really need to get on it and finish these books before the movies are released!

Are there any movies on this list that you are most excited for?

I've only read Fallen and Legend out of this list! I loved Legend, but wasn't a huge fan of Fallen. I'm still excited to see how the movie goes, though! I need to read the other books, ASAP! I can't believe An Ember in Ashes was already optioned when the book hasn't even been released yet! Crazy!
