Have you ever had your favorite movie turned into a book only to find out the wrong people have been casted in it? We list down some of our dream actors and actresses should any of our favorite reads be turned into films. Who's on your list?

I can't think of a Lara Jean (To All the Boys I've Loved Before) but Ansel Elgort would make a perfect Peter Kavinsky. —Steph, Art Director

My all-time fave YA book, Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist, has already been turned into a movie (Michael Cera and Kat Dennings were perfectly cast!), but if we're talking wildest dreams, I'm petitioning for Chloe Moretz and Brooklyn Beckham as Anna and Etienne in Anna and the French Kiss. They're super cute together, aren't they? —Dyan, Managing Editor

Bianca Mascenon, Fashion and Beauty Assistant

Liana Liberato for Anna and Harry Styles for Etienne St. Clair! Or Alex Pettyfer circa 2008! —Bianca, Fashion and Beauty Assistant

Mara Agner, Assistant Lifestyle and Features Editor

Jesse Eisenberg would make a great Clay Jannon in Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore. —Mara, Assistant Lifestyle and Features Editor

Ayessa De La Pena, Web Editorial Assistant

I heard Joey King's going to play Stargirl in the movie adaptation of Jerry Spinelli's book, and I think she'll do an awesome job playing her! I just wish they got Ansel Elgort for the male lead’s part. He he he. —Ayessa, Web Assistant Section Editor

Janelle Yau, Fashion and Beauty Assistant

Sam Claflin and Emilia Clarke for The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto by Mitch Albom! Super love these two together. —Janelle, Fashion and Beauty Assistant
