10 Books I'd Love To See As Movies/TV Shows | Top Ten Tuesday



Harcourt Cover, 2008.
10. Graceling - Kristin Cashore (TV Show)
If Game of Thrones can do it, why not Graceling? Has there ever been a tv show set in a high fantasy universe with a female lead? Like, ever? Let me know in the comments if you can think of one.

9. Uglies - Scottt Westerfeld (Movie Series)

I think in this day and age it could actually be beneficial to society to get this turned into a movie series so we could get rid of all that superficial BS. 

8. Hex Hall - Rachel Hawkins (Movie)

I just want badass teenage witches on screen again. How long has it been? Four score and a seven years for sure. I'd even be satisfied if you turn this into a horribly executed chick-flick like you did with Vampire Academy (RIP), that's how thirsty I am for witches.

7. Cinder - Marissa Meyer (Movie Series)

The world needs another movie series set in space and with that current trend in life-action fairytale movies this is our chance. I want the books to be made into movies and I demand a cast that's true to the books. 

6. Inkspell - Cornelia Funke (Movie)

What did you say? There is already a movie? I believe you must be mistaken, I don't think there's ever been a movie, I refuse to call this piece of ... I don't even know what to describe it as. Bottom line is, we deserve a remake for this epic, epic book series and this time, please do it right. 

5. Hush Hush - Becca Fitzpatrick (Movie Series)

Angels. Give me some accurately represented frighteningly beautiful angels in their own movie. You'd think there's a market for that with all that vampire stuff that's been shoved down our throats for half a decade.

4. Wicked Lovely - Melissa Marr (Tv show)

I don't think there's been a movie about faeries in ages. With exception of that god-awful fairy subplot in True Blood a few years ago of course. The world is ready for another movie series about faeries. Bring it on.

3. Starters - Lissa Price (Movie)

Razorbill Covers
It's James Bond with heels and guns. How can you say no to that? I believe there's even an online petition for it to become a movie going on somewhere.

2. Matched - Allie Condie (Movie)

Come on. Soulmate movies are never a bad idea.

1. Vampire Academy Series - Richelle Mead (TV Show, Movie Series, ANYTHING)

You saw this coming, admit it. I'm just so frustrated. How come the shadowhunters fandom gets both a tv show and a movie and we're stuck with a single shitty movie and major book hangovers? 


Which Book Do You NEED to Have Turned into a Movie ASAP?

5. Matilda - Roald Dahl
This goes without saying.

4. Loving - Katrin Bongard
This is a retelling of Pride and Prejudice, but featuring a book blogging nerdy heroine!
(Review)

3. Pride and Prejudice - Jane Austen
Again, no description needed.

2. Inkeart - Cornelia Funke
I don't think I need to describe the plot because at this point everyone has heard of it. If you've watched the horrible movie I apologize. The series is brilliant, unique and captivating. If you haven't read it yet, I strongly recommend doing so!

1. The Shadow of the Wind - Carlos Ruis Zafón

He absolutely falls in love with it and tries to find out more about the author and his other works.
