*Disclaimer: Not all of these books/series have been made into movies, I just think they would do better as television adaptations than as film versions.

1. “Harry Potter” series

2. “Percy Jackson & the Olympians” series (I would personally like an animated version of this, in a style like “Avatar: The Last Airbender” or “Voltron: Legendary Defender”)

3. “The Selection” series

4. “Sherlock Holmes” (nice job so far, BBC!)

5. Anything by Jane Austen

• Story continues below video 

6. “1984”

7. “Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe”

8. “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” (as a cartoon, of course — no more live action for this title, please!)

9. “Princess Academy” series

10. “The Chronicles of Narnia” (maybe we could get all the books in this time!)
