YA Books I'd Love to See as Anime

I'm kind of falling out of love with  YA movie adaptions, but I think there are so many books that would make some great anime ! With the right animation and voice acting I can see these YA books coming to life in a whole new way.

Anime is all about the blue hair don't care

Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
I have two reasons for this pick 1.) a live action movie would have to be very expensive to get the chimeras right and 2.) Karou has blue hair !  From Pokemon to Sword Art Online, anime is the trope codifier for You Gotta Have Blue Hair.

Scorpion Rules by Erin Bow
This book has a character who is basically two genders at once and anime likes to explore gender bending characters with their animation; take for example Haruhi from Ouran High School Host Club. Plus, I thought the audiobook had a great and narrator Madeline Mabey could totally provide the voice acting.

The Young Elites by Marie Lu
This book is about a group  of teens saving the day, which is basically the plot of every popular anime. With the all the action, fantastical elements and characters-so-beautiful-they-can't-be described this series is just begging for great animation. Plus Adelina has one-eye and for whatever reason from Naruto to Black Butler anime has so many one eyed characters.
