Top Ten Tuesday, as always, is hosted at my other blog — The Broke & the Bookish
This week’s topic: Top Ten Books I Would Love To See As A Movie/TV Show
It terrifies me when books become movies because they are so often craptacular and don’t do them justice BUT this is all set in a perfect world where it will do it justice and not make me cry because of how bad it is!
Code Name Verity by Elizbeth Wein — One of my favorite books this year and I think it would make an AMAZING movie. I can’t even imagine how hard I would bawl when KISS ME HARDY was uttered.
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins — I see this as an adorable movie with a great setting and really I just want to see St. Clair on the big screen. LET’S BE HONEST.
Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell — I see Eleanor & Park as a really cool indie flick with a great soundtrack because HELLO THE 80’s!
Going Vintage by Lindsey Leavitt– I seriously wish this could be a Disney/ABC Family movie because it’s super cute and fun! I can picture it in my head so much! You can also check out my bookish date inspired by this book.
Graffiti Moon by Cath Crowley – This book is amazing and a favorite and I’d love to see it played out on the big screen. I definitely also see this one as an indie flick with an amazing soundtrack! Because the novel has a lot to do about art I would want the cinematography to be really amazing and beautiful.
Where The Stars Still Shine by Trish Doller – I just think this would make an all around great movie and I would love to see Tarpon Springs and its charm on screen. Plus the big Greek family!
Just One Day by Gayle Forman – I JUST NEED THIS TO BE A MOVIE, OK?? It’s a favorite and I need more of it!!
Not A Drop To Drink by Mindy McGinnis — At first I thought MOVIE but then I was like NO I want this to be a tv show — a la Revolution and Walking Dead — because this world is fascinating and I think there are a lot of possibilities to offshoot from Lynn’s small slice of a story and the potential for a new cast of characters to join her. Also, STEBBS <33
Take A Bow by Elizabeth Eulberg – Not going to lie I totally want a teen show based on this book. I love any sorts of performing arts type shows so a show set at a performing arts school would be AWESOME.
Jessica Darling series by Megan McCafferty–– WE NEED TO MAKE THE JESSICA DARLING SERIES A SHOW. HOW IS THIS NOT A THING ALREADY?! She’s got so much personality and would make a fab character to fall in love with on screen. PLUS THEN WE GET TO SEE MARCUS AND JESSICA. But maybe not the dreads? I don’t know…
So tell me…would love to see any of these as a movie/tv show? Tell me which books you would LOVE to see on the big screen/your television.
