Top Ten Tuesday is an awesome meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish where bloggers can share lists of books about a certain topic and meet other bloggers! For more information check out the page here!
I, like most bookish people, have a love/hate relationship with adaptations. Books are personal experiences. Movies can’t be ten hours long. Sometimes it seems like filmmakers don’t care about anything about the money.
In a perfect world, where filmmakers were really awesome fans from Tumblr with unlimited resources, I would want these lovelies made into a movie or TV show:
(in no order)
Anxiety, mean girls, kissing, lots of boys, psychiatrists, anti-slut shaming. Television could only benefit from the life lessons in these books.

a post I wrote about The Boyfriend List
Angels, devils, blue hair, Prague, traveling, dancing, teeth, bodies, memories, love, hate, epic battles, epic everything. Could be epic.

Dangerous kisses, psychics, tarot cards, private school boys, lost kings, magic trees, wonderful characters, in a perfect world it’d be a perfect movie

Magic, Death, Necromancy, bells that raise the dead, Sendings, Mogget, I think this series would be excellent as a miniseries.

a post I wrote on the Abhorsen series
1920s New York, flappers, amazing female characters that are strong, vulnerable, and likable, CREEPY, paranormal abilities. Could be magical.

Revenge, all the females, all the females not taking shit from anyone, mean girls, mean guys, rumors, your new PLL or TVD, perhaps?

I’m a really visual reader, and I could picture this book so well in my head. It would be perfect, creepy, with likable characters and a thrilling mystery.

“Imagine a place where the dead rest on shelves like books.” Isn’t that enough? No? Well the dead get out sometimes and Keepers have to corral them. It gets dangerous.

The bastard of a Prince, a mental power called the Skill, a cursed link with animals known as the Wit, mysterious mindless killers, assassins, epic.

Angel Apocolaypse, warrior angels, a girl looking for her sister, romance, heartbreak, danger, creepiness. In a perfect world, can you imagine how awesome a movie of this would be?

Okay, I regret trying to make this look different and hope I only want to make simple, numbered lists in the future. Anyway, do you agree with any of my choices? What books do you think would rock a screen? Leave your link!
I haven’t really read most of the other books…so The Raven Boys definitely. But I kinda want it to be a TV series (even though I know they’re making a movie out of it) since there’s a lot of stories to be told.
I didn’t know it was definitely going to be a movie, but I’m not surprised. I kind of expect not to like it, but in a perfect world it would be awesome. A TV show would be a nice way to get more in it, but I feel like I might get bored with a TV show unless it was consistently engaging and exciting! Thanks for visiting!
I want to see The Diviners become a TV show so badly. It would be fantastic!
It would be awesome! In the real world, I would probably end up hating the cast and getting tired of it though. But I can always hope it will happen and not be horrible, haha! Thanks for visiting!
Oooh Burn for Burn would make a great show! Great picks 🙂
Here’s my Top Ten!
I think it would be awesome! Thanks!
Can’t believe I forgot Angelfall (after I just reviewed it too, oops!) I think it would make an amazing film!
I think it could be really awesome, but I feel like in reality it might be a disaster. So optimistic, haha.
I SO WANT TO SEE ALL OF THESE AS MOVIES!! I mean, at least the ones I’ve read. Especially Daughter of Smoke and Bone. In a perfect world, the movie will be magical ❤
Yes! I am worried about it in the real world but perhaps it won’t be so bad. If it’s actually happening and not just maybe happening? Book movies are fickle like that!
Oooh I’ve seen Daughter of Smoke and Bone on quite a few lists! Clearly I need to get this one from the library! (I see it there every time I go!) I haven’t read any of the others as of yet! Anna is definitely high on my TBR though!
Thanks for stopping by my TTT!
Daughter of Smoke and Bone is gorgeous, I hope you get to pick it up! And Anna is funny and intense, so I hope you read it and like it, too!
Thanks for visiting mine! =)
The Archived was an interesting book to read. Depending on how the movie would be made, it could be a visual stunner. However, it has a lot of potential to go cheap and silly, as well.
Check out my TTT list: http://booksavvyblog.blogspot.com/
Hollywood is good at making things cheap and silly, unfortunately. Thanks for visiting!
I need to read Burn for Burn. I’ve heard it’s fantastic. I love revenge stories as well, so I think it’s right up my alley. Hopefully I’ll get to it soon, but great picks, and thanks for stopping by my blog 🙂
I hope you get to read it soon and enjoy it! Thanks for stopping by mine, too!
Daughter of Smoke and Bone was on my list too! Such a great book. I’m reading the sequel now. 🙂
Yay! I didn’t love the sequel as much, but I’m still really excited about the next one and thing the writing is beautiful!
Angelfall looks like a popular movie-want. I still need to read the book!
Here are my Top Ten .firstname.lastname@example.org
You should definitely check it out!
Oh, yes I can totally see Burn for Burn as the new PLL. And The Raven Boys and Angelfall would make great movies. Especially Angelfall 🙂
Wouldn’t it be fun, pretty, angry girls inflicting havoc on the town? And Angelfall was on so many lists this week, everyone is awesome, haha!
