Damn I didn't know there were that many. I don't know how some of them are going to turn out, though. Sometimes books just need to stay books. I hope they don't completely ruin them. =]

I agree, Katie. Some of these are going to be terrible movies that ruin the awesome books, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they won't mess up all of them. :D

Great list! Alyssa will be thrilled about the Cassandra Clare series.

Happy to find your blog!
