Top 10 Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful ladies over at The Broke and The Bookish.
This week’s topic is… Top Ten Books I'd Love To See As Movies/Tv Shows
As a book lover, I often fantasize about my favorite book series being adapted into an amazing movie or tv show. Here are just some of the ones that I think would be awesome
Five books that should be TV Shows
I could totally see this as an amazing Game of Thrones-esque tv show. It would be so cool to see Celaena kicking butt every week. and Dorian and Chaol? Sign me up.
I all honestly, though, I could totally see this as the next Game of Thrones.
This series is filled with constant twists, turns and tons of drama. I could definitely see Peyton, Courtney and Savannah as a TV show as they adventure through Las Vegas as the daughters of a billionaire. It would be such a fun show, and I think it would have a gossip girl type vibe to it.
Wouldn’t this be such a fun TV show? It would be a blast to watch Daemon and Katy’s adventures week after week. I feel like this series would be much better as a tv show than a movie. There are plenty of successful tv shows about werewolves and vampires. Why not aliens?
This would make an amazing tv show or movie, really. A boarding school for spies? Who wouldn’t watch that? However, this is a six book series, and to keep it true to the books and keep in all of the important details I think a tv show would be better. There are so many twists and turns with this series that I feel like many episodes would end on a cliffhanger.
Fellow Percy Jackson fans….
Please don’t kill me.
I think that the Heroes of Olympus series would make a terrific TV show. The episodic structure in which the books are written I feel would translate well to a tv show. With the prophecy of the seven being the main plot. With the perfect cast, director, and script, this tv show would be a smash hit.
Five books that should be Movies
This would make such a great sci-fi movie franchise. Can’t you just see Cinder & Co. as they travel throughout the galaxy on their quest on the big screen? I can. And it’s amazing. The way Marissa Meyer seamlessly intertwines these characters and storylines and just YESS
This is one of my favorite contemporaries and I think it would make such a terrific movie. It would be amazing to follow Allyson and Willem on their whirlwind romance. Plus, can you imagine how cool it would be if they shot on location and you got to see all the places they visit?
From the time I first started this series, I always thought it would make a good movie. The books are written in such an episodic structure and it would translate really well with each book being about a different heist or con. This could be a multi movie thing, with each one focusing on a different job. Also, heist movies are always fun so I think this one would appeal to a pretty wide audience.
This book has a pretty dark feel and is essentially, a villain backstory. I feel like a lot of people today have an infatuation with villains (myself included) and would love this movie. They could really play up the darkness of this book and bring out the villain aspect, and I think this would be very successful.
These Broken Stars would be a great sci-fi survival/love story. I think it would make a fantastic movie – getting to see Lilac and Tarver on this new planet as they grow and change and fight for survival.
PS: Doesn't this cover kind of already look like movie poster?
Well, that was fun! What’s on your list? Do you agree with these? Leave a link and let me know!
