Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Every week focuses on a different topic and you make a top ten list from it! This week's topic is: Top
Ten Eight Books You Would Like To See Made Into A Movie/TV Show.
I am going to amend this to include books/series I'd want to see made into a movie OR a tv show. There are just some stories that I don't think can be contained in one movie that I think would make a great television series. Some of these books probably already have movie deals in the works but I am just going by what I'd like to see. Here's my top ten list in no particular order.
Cinder by Marissa Meyer - If you didn't know that I loved this book already, you can see my review here. I just think it would be a great sci fi/fantasy series that I would totally watch.
Unwind by Neal Schusterman - I think this has a movie deal already. Such a great, tense story that I think would make a fabulous film.
The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay by Michael Chabon - I loved this book by Michael Chabon about friendship, family and the rise of the comic book. I think it had a movie deal at one point that died but it's such a rich story that I think would make a wonderful movie.
Y: The Last Man by Brian K Vaugh (tv series) - What would happen if all the males on earth died? Well read Y: The Last Man and find out. This series has everything - action, romance, science, and even a monkey. I don't think the story could be told in one movie but a tv series would be perfect.
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins - Such a cute story that I think would make a really cute movie. Throw in a great soundtrack and I think we'd have a winner.
Blood Bound (Mercy Thompson series) by Patricia Briggs (tv series) - I love this series so much! I know it has shades of True Blood in it but it's really very different. However, I think fans of Sookie/True Blood would enjoy the series and I think it would make a great tv show in its own right.
A Dirty Job by Christopher Moore - Hilarious story about Death. Why haven't any Christopher Moore books been make into movies?
Fables by Bill Willingham (tv series) - So Fables was optioned for a television series a few years back, but it never happened. Unfortunately, with the popularity of Once Upon A Time (which I like) and the similarities between these two series, it's unlikely now that a Fables series will ever happen. However, it is a GREAT series that I definitely think you should read, esp if you like OUAT.
Hold Me Closer, Necromancer by Lish McBride - This would be a hilarious movie. Someone needs to make this happen.
That's all I have for you today. What do you think of my list? Hit me up with your TTT links and I'll stop by. Thanks and happy Tuesday!
