Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the ladies at The Broke and the Bookish.
This week’s topic is:
Top Ten Books I Would Love To See As A Movie/TV Show
Marianne had done a similar post to this one (which you can see here), but she still had tons of ideas for this post!
(First 5 are Marianne’s, last 5 are Jennifer’s)
- Delirium by Lauren Oliver
When it was announced that Delirium would be a TV series, I (Marianne) squealed in excitement and started jumping up and down. I was less enthusiastic about the casting (seeing as I thought Brendon Thwaites would have been an awesome Alex), but I still wanted to see this story come to life on the screen. Sadly FOX never picked up the show, but I heard that Lauren Oliver said the movie rights were sold, so there’s still hope!
- Tangled Tides by Karen Amanda Hooper
I LOVE mermaids, and right now, even if I’m at 27%, I know I’d LOVE this book to be a movie. It’s a book about mermaids, and a really really really sexy merman, so that’s always a plus!
- Legend by Marie Lu
This series is awesome! I’m afraid to even read the second book of the series because I’m afraid of the giant cliffhanger, so I’m just waiting until October when all of the books will be together on my bookshelf. This book makes me feel SO ordinary. The protagonists are only 15 years old, but they’re so completely badass and amazing. This book is a great dystopian that I’d love to see on the big screen.
- Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry
Arrghhh this is one of my favorite reads this year! It’s an amazing contemporary romance and I’d LOVE to see it in movie form (if only for Noah *dreamy sigh*)
- Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer
The Lunar Chronicles is a series created by Marissa Meyer that basically re-tells classic fairy tales. I LOVE this series to bits, and since I enjoy fairytale retellings so much (exhibit A being how much I love Once Upon a Time), I wouldn’t complain seeing this in a movie theater!
- A Dog’s Purpose by W. Bruce Cameron
It was said that there would be a movie of this awesome book, but I haven’t heard more of it. Still, a really good book I’d die to see on the big screen ❤
- Dark Places by Gillian Flynn
This book is traumatizing and so original, I (Jennifer) was left speechless, specially with that ending! There’s gonna be a movie of Gone Girl, one of Gillian’s most famous works, and I want to read it too. But Dark Places would also be an interesting story to see with its weird moments, developments, and intriguing characters.
- I’ve Got Your Number by Sophie Kinsella
I’m not one to read Adult Romances, but I loved reading this book so much! It would be really cool that it would be turned into a good chick-flik movie. Not only because it’s about a woman in her adulthood and being in love, but also, because this story has a lot of cool elements like investigation, comedy, and a great message to people out there on how to let yourself be stomped on by others. My perfect cast for Sam would be Henry Cavill. I’m casting that guy for so many roles…
- My Ex From Hell by Tellulah Darling
I love Greek Mythology, and I feel like there aren’t enough movies about them for teens. And in Tellulah’s novel we have a great combination of romance, comedy, and yes, greek action. It would be awesome to have it on the screen as a movie, or even better, as a series! Go Greeks!
- The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith
Because it’s romance. There. I can be sappy from time to time, and this is a story that’ll have you sighing throughout the whole movie. And I’d love to see that. And even John Green loved the book so maybe he could pull off a few strings, thought I doubt it! Still, one can dream… :3
That’s it for this week’s To Ten Tuesday! We both hope you liked them!
