I read books all the time and think "Wow, this would make an awesome anime." I can't stand American media, but there are also some US films that I think are bad because the actor/actress overshadows the character and it ends up being watched my most people for the sole purpose of worshiping that actor/actress, how ever they would be awesome as an anime because that wouldn't happen (and, face it, the special effects would be waaaay less crap.) If you've seen/read something like this, post about it.

I think most of Shannon Hale's books (with the exception of River Secrets and Austen Land) would make amazing Miyazaki movies because they are exactly his style: Strong, female main character with a male companion of the same age changes the world, or the country, or the town, or even just themselves. Her books are Goose girl, Enna Burning, Princess Academy, and Book of a Thousand Days.

Goose Girl is about a young princess whose life is ruled by her controlling mother and her duty to her country, until she is told that, years ago, her mother sold her to be married to the prince of neighboring and much stronger kingdom. On the treacherous road to reach this kingdom, Bayern, half of her escort massacred the other half in an attempt to kill her so that her lady-in-waiting, who has the dangerous gift of People-Speaking, could attain the throne in the princess (Ani)'s place. Ani escapes and is forced to live tending to the King's geese in Bayern, a country she does not know.

Enna Burning is the sequel to Goose Girl, though it would make an amazing anime by itself. It's about Enna, Ani (who has now become princess of Bayern)'s friend, shortly after her mother died. Ani has the gift of Animal-Speaking, which her late aunt taught her, as well as Wind-Speaking, a lost art that Ani discovered on her own. Enna's brother discovers Fire-Speaking, another lost art, and uses it to kill millions in war, though he died doing it, the fire eating him from the inside out. Enna learns to speak to fire as well and discovers what an awful art it is, one that kills rather than heals, and in a time of war Enna uses it to aid her country in secret.

Princess Academy is about a remote village on top of a high mountain, which makes a meager living mining a precious stone called linder from the mountain itself. Miri is a girl living on this mountian, the only one besides those too young or too old who does not work in the quarry. She always thought that was because she was too small and thin, to scrawny and worthless, and that was why her father preferred for her to stay home and tend the goats and chores. Miri was. after all, the smallest of any in the village. However, a message from the King arrived: All of the village girls aged twelve to seventeen were to go to a special academy for training the girls to become princesses, as the priests have divined that Mount Eskel is where the prince's future bride resides. Miri believes that perhaps, as a princess, she will be of some worth to those around her after all, but she can't imagine marrying a person she has never met, especially with the village boy Peder so close yet so far away.

Lock this if it's a duplicate.
