Worst anticipated book for me was Dead Reckoning, Charlaine Harris http://www.amazon.com/Dead-Reckoning-Sookie-Stackhouse-Book/dp/0441020313/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1325715063&sr=1-2

Best books to movie or Screen had to be Game of Thrones on HBO. 

Hope my delving through 100+ books helps you find at least one winner!
