Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly event hosted over at The Broke and the Bookish.
It’s so exciting when a favorite book is turned into a movie or TV show. I mean, of course, I’m always really stressed about whether or not the director/producer/screenwriter/actors will do a good job, but also, I’m really excited. It’s sort of like I get to experience a favorite story for the first time again.
Anyway, so this week I’m listening ten books that I would love to see movie/TV show adaptations of.
In no particular order . . .
1. The Scarlet Pimpernel by Emmuska Orczy
Okay, so this book has already been turned into a movie a few times, but it’s been a really long time since the latest one. I would love to see a new take on this story. And to see Percy brought to lift by a wonderful actor would just make me so happy. 🙂
2. Heist Society by Ally Carter
I thought this book was good, although it’s not a favorite. The whole time I was reading this book, though, I kept thinking this would make a great movie. Or a TV Show. Actually, I think it would make a kick-ass TV Show.
3. The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by Alan Bradley
I would love to see Flavia (assuming the get an awesome actress to play Flavia) solving all the crimes in 1950s England. So much fun. I’m picture something along the lines of Foyle’s War.
4. Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout.
Two words: Daemon Black.
5. The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer.
I just love these books so much, and would love to see a film adaptation. I wouldn’t want it too sci-fi though.
6. Also Known As by Robin Benway
This is such a fun book. The characters are awesome, and unique, but also totally relatable. Although I could see this as a movie, I think it would be a kick ass CW show.
7. Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
I picture this one as a movie. It’s a wonderful story, but it also has quite a bit of suspense, which really works for movies, I think.
8. The Hero’s Guide to Saving Your Kingdom by Christopher Healy.
Seriously, how awesome would this be as a movie? Or a TV show? All those fun characters. Maybe something similar to Once Upon a Time, only way more funnier and lighter.
9. The Ghost and the Goth by Stacey Kade
Don’t you think this book would make a great TV series? It’s funny, it’s got romance, it’s got the supernatural. What’s not to like?
10. The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting
I think the mystery aspect to this book would make for a great movie/TV Show. Plus, yay for Jay and Violet and the supernatural bits.
So there are my picks. What books would love to see a movie/TV adaptation of?
