Top Ten Books I Would Love To See As A Movie/TV Show

Top Ten Tuesday

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)

Ruby Oliver series by E. Lockhart

Anxiety, mean girls, kissing, lots of boys, psychiatrists, anti-slut shaming. Television could only benefit from the life lessons in these books.

Daughter of Smoke & Bone series by Laini Taylor

Angels, devils, blue hair, Prague, traveling, dancing, teeth, bodies, memories, love, hate, epic battles, epic everything. Could be epic.

Abhorsen Trilogy by Garth Nix

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

The Diviners by Libba Bray

1920s New York, flappers, amazing female characters that are strong, vulnerable, and likable, CREEPY, paranormal abilities. Could be magical.

Burn for Burn by Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian Revenge, all the females, all the females not taking shit from anyone, mean girls, mean guys, rumors, your new PLL or TVD, perhaps?

Anna Dressed in Blood by Kenare Blake 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.

The Archived by Victoria Schwab “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 Farseer Trilogy by Robin Hobb

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.

Angelfall by Susan Ee 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 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!

    • 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!

  1. 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!
