Top Ten Tuesday – Books I’d love to see as a Film/TV Show

TTT

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish and this week’s theme is the books that I’d like to see as a film/TV Show. Obviously this is in an ideal world where Hollywood doesn’t regularly take amazing books and slaughter them unnecessarily (I’m still grumpy about the butchering of Northern Lights).

 1. American Wife by Curtis Sittenfeld – begging to be made into a ‘mini-series’ (I apologise for using that phrase. Shudder).

Amity and Sorrow

                2. Amity & Sorrow by Peggy Riley – would be an ace (and very dark) film.

   3. Tigers in Red Weather by Liza Klassmann – could be a gorgeous period piece/thriller.

The Various Haunts by Men#5#

  4. The Various Haunts of Men by Susan Hill – actually a whole Simon Serrailler TV series please.

tideline

         5. Tideline by Penny Hancock – perfect for a Sunday night TV drama.

Sweetness pie

    6. The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by Alan Bradley – Flavia de Luce would translate brilliantly to the small screen.

snow child

7. The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey – if only they could make a film as beautiful as the book…

Before I Fall- Lauren Oliver

8. Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver – I would in no* way cry at the end.

            9. Heart-Shaped Bruise by Tanya Byrne – with great characters, tension and a twist, this would be an awesome film.

glassbooks

10. The Glass Books of the Dream Eaters by G. W. Dahlquist – would make such a fun/ridiculous romp of a film.

What would you like to see made into a film or series in an ideal, non-amazing-book-wrecking world?

  1. I really want to read Before I fall! I really love Oliver’s writing and I’ve also heard really good things about it. :) Great list!

  2. I agree with you about Heart Shaped Bruise. I nearly put it on my list this week too. That book could be amazing as a movie.

  3. Oh I love Before I fall. And I have been wanting to read The Snow Child for some time. Good list. Now I think I should pick that one up next….

  4. I completely agree with you about Glass Books…I loved that book in so many ways but it was very meandering and over-long and I feel like with some good editing you’d be left with a great deal of action that would transfer perfectly to the screen. Great choice.

  5. I only knew a couple of these. Intriguing list! The Snow Child Looks like a must. As a TV addict, I love the whole concept.

  6. I think in an ideal world where they don’t mess up book adaptations I’d love to see The Night Circus as a movie – think they might actually be making it into a film. It’s just so vividly described and you can picture it all so clearly I can imagine it would look fantastic, if done well, on the big screen!
