Hollywood has always loved turning books into movies. Some of the biggest movies were actually based on novels, like the “Harry Potter” series and the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy. These movies retained a lot of the actual story and they also incorporated some amazing digital visual effects. Unfortunately, not all great books transition well on the silver screen. Here is a list of 9 books that should never have been made into movies!

9. Twilight

The “Twilight” series – both the novels and the films – have become immensely popular. While the films were successful at the box office, they received mostly mixed and negative reviews. Some critics weren’t so nice. “Meyer is said to have been involved in the production of Twilight, but her novel was substantially more absorbing than the unintentionally funny and quickly forgettable film,” one critic wrote online.

8. He’s Just Not That Into You

The self-help book “He’s Just Not That Into You” was inspired by a conversation from “Sex and the City” where Jack Berger – Carrie Bradshaw’s boyfriend during season six – gave Miranda Hobbs some dating advice. Strangely, it has spawned a 304-page book and a two hour and 12 minute movie. Rotten Tomatoes gave the film a 41% rating, criticizing it for reducing the characters to stereotypes.
