Maybe the real question young Harriet M. Welsch from Harriet the Spy in the GIF above should be asking is, “Did you read this?” Basically all of our favorite movies are based on really great books when you think about it: Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, Twilight and Divergent are all film adaptations — and so are other favorites like Mean Girls and Legally Blonde.

While you most likely already knew that all of the following films are based on books, you probably weren’t aware that one of your fave television networks — Nickelodeon — is responsible for their theatrical releases. Some actors and actresses in your favorite modern teen TV shows played characters in these great movies, and we even have a now A-list celeb in one film on this list, and her aunt in another! The original books on this list were written somewhere between 1929 and 2009 and the most recent film was released in 2011, but we’re sure there will be more to add to this collection in no time. Hopefully you can find a new book to read or a new movie to watch out of the selection below!
