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).
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.
4. The Various Haunts of Men by Susan Hill – actually a whole Simon Serrailler TV series please.
5. Tideline by Penny Hancock – perfect for a Sunday night TV drama.
6. The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by Alan Bradley – Flavia de Luce would translate brilliantly to the small screen.
7. The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey – if only they could make a film as beautiful as the book…
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.
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?
