Top Ten Books I'd Love to See As Movies/TV Shows
(Feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish)
No. No I do not like to talk about books, and movies, and television. Those are my least favorite topics every. Or this is the best list ever! While I have a lot hate relationship with turning books into something else (so said every book lover always), I can't help but want to see some of my favorite stories come to life. Sometimes they get it right. Why not these times?
What's on your list? Happy reading!
1) Keturah and Lord Death by Martine Leavitt - Movie
A period piece. A forbidden romance. A time limit. It would be lovely. And romanticle.
2) Avalon by Mindee Arnett - TV
So I know I just read this, and I know I compared it to one of my favorite science fiction television shows. But I honestly do think it would make a good series. There's room to grow with the characters, a big enough world to keep things interesting, and a spaceship.
3) Etiquette & Espionage by Gail Carrier - TV
A steampunk adventure about young girls in fantastic dresses at a finishing school for spies, set on an airship, led by an array of supernatural creatures. Done.
4) Where She Went by Gayle Forman - Movie
You can't give me the first if you have no intention of following through with the sequel. Come on people. Where is this movie already?
5) The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern - Movie
Surprise surprise. But I love it. And I want it. Even though I'm terrified they will destroy it. And then I will be bitter and will imagine the perfect movie in my head.
6) Ready Player One by Ernest Cline - Movie
This could be complicated, but interesting. Maybe it would be better as a miniseries? You could take your time introducing the different virtual worlds.
7) Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins - TV
Harper Price is a great heroine, and now that Heart of Dixie is done, we're in serious need of a show that features killer southern accents. And so what if there is an element of the supernatural, Harper is cool enough to keep things interesting.
8) Panic by Lauren Oliver - Movie (or TV)
Bit of a dark, serious story, but full of intrigue and thrills. This would definitely make a good whatever.
9) Jackaby by William Ritter - T)
It has been compared to Doctor Who and Sherlock. The storylines are endless and Jackaby just quirky enough to make it work.
10) Cinder by Marissa Meyer - Movie
The visuals alone would make this awesome. And then there's the fairytale setting, and the strong female characters, and plenty of twists and turns. And the covers are just so pretty.
Oh! And The Accidental Highwayman, and Splintered, and Enchanted, and The Avery Shaw Experiment, and Boy Nobody, and The Selection, and Raven Boys...okay. I'll stop.
