Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week is the Top Ten Books I Would Love To See As A Movie/TV Show (set in a perfect world…in which movies don’t butcher the books we love.)
I think the big thing with this weeks topic is that little clause at the end, otherwise I’d have a very hard time picking which books I would want to see as a movie or TV series because I hate when the adaptations get screwed up. There are quite a few books that I would love to see turned into movies so here they are in no particular order.
- The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater. This book would be amazing as a movie.
- Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor. This one is already being talked about/in the works so I can only hope it’s as good as the book.
- Anna Dressed In Blood by Kendare Blake. I know the movies rights to this book have actually been bought but I have a bad feeling that it won’t be a good adaptation hence why I’m including it there.
- Green Rider by Kristen Britain. I think movies would work best for this series since there’s a huge gap in between each book being written, otherwise TV series might work.
- The Kindrily Series by Karen Amanda Hooper. While the final book in this series isn’t out yet, it should be sometime next year, I think this would make a pretty awesome trilogy of movies.
- The Floating Castle by Craig Mills. Why wouldn’t I want this, and the other King’s Quest books (which I haven’t read yet), to be turned into a movie? Need more Daventry!
- Kushiel’s Dart by Jacqueline Carey. This along with the rest of the books in this series would make a pretty amazing TV series. Movies I don’t think would work because they would either need to be really long or several made for each book to fit it all in.
- Touch of Power by Maria V. Snyder. This could make a pretty awesome movie.
- Ghost Planet by Sharon Fisher. While I’m not 100% sure how well this would translate into a movie it might be pretty interesting.
- The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield. This could prove to be a very interesting movie, would the audience, especially those who hadn’t read the book, be able to figure out the mystery before it ended?
