Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I’d Love to See As a Movie/TV Show

As always, TTT is hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s topic: top ten books you’d love to see as movies/tv shows. I could only think of eight. Some of these might already be films, so if you know of one, please let me know in the comments!

1. Private series by Kate Brian
– I know this was an internet series, but I think it deserve to be on tv, a la Gossip Girl and Pretty Little Liars.

2. The Passage by Justin Cronin
-This would be great as a Game of Thrones esque tv series.

3. Hyperion series by Dan Simmons
-Also, would be great as a tv show.

4. The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
– I don’t think a movie would do it justice, but who wouldn’t want to see The Cemetery of Forgotten Books on-screen?

5. The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly
-Would be great as an animated film. An adult cartoon.

6. Empire Falls by Richard Russo
-I imagine this as a great mini-series.

7. Alex Rider series by Anthony Horowtiz
-I’m honestly surprised this has never been adapted for tv. I guess there was one movie, that didn’t really get much attention in the states.

8. Artemis Fowl series by Eoin Colfer
-I guess this is actually happening finally?

9. Privilege series by Kate Brian

-A spin-off of Private actually, but equally good.

10. 13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson

-I loved this book and think it would be a great movie.

  1. I’d love to see “This Perfect Day” by Ira Levin. I believe it’s the only novel not made into a movie by that author, and a terrific novel at that! (Actually I think Equilibrium might have borrowed from the book as there are some parallels, but that movie also has parallels with fahrenheit 451). Anyway, cool blog you have here Shannon!
