It's no secret that I love to read. On occasion, I also enjoy watching movies made out of the books I like – sometimes, but not always. I also hate it more than anything when a movie doesn't stay true to the story as much as it possibly can. All the same, there are still some novels and stories I wish would be made into films. Here's my list of 8 books that might make great movies. You've probably seen some of these titles on my book lists before – they're my favorites, I can't help it!
1. Rip Van Winkle by Washington Irving
Price: $5.99 at amazon.com
I love The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. The only really good representation of it I've ever seen was actually a tiny, hour long Disney movie, created for Halloween back in the late 1980s or early 1990s. Johnny Depp is great, but he's no Ichabod, you know? The point is, Washington Irving is awesome, and I'd love to see this literal sleeper tale turned into a movie – maybe even with a modern, updated twist.
