Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s theme is:
Top Ten Books I Would Like To See Made Into Movies
I have decided this week to list the books I would love to see made into movies. Because this week is a freebie topic, and since I love waxing lyrical about books and movies, I have decided to combine the two for this week’s theme.
1. This is Not a Test by Courtney Summers
Zombies. Teenagers trapped in a boarded up school. Zombies. Group falling apart as tensions rise. Zombies (I am a zombie fan – could you tell?)
2. Angelfall by Susan Ee
I have heard that the rights have actually been optioned for a film. I can totally see why – end of the world with Angels – sign me up!!
3. Swan Song by Robert McCammon
I read this book for the first time when I was a teenager and I have always thought that this would make a terrific movie with its post-apocalyptic setting.
4. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
This would make a simply delightful movie – the setting and the cute romance could make it a sure-fire hit!
5. Wanderlove by Kirsten Hubbard
The setting is Central America so this could be a wonderful cultural movie. Not to mention the fact that the romance is pretty sweet too!
6. Storm by Brigid Kemmerer
I think my ovaries would explode if they were to make a movie that featured the Merrick brothers (plus the plot is pretty good too)!
7. Darkhouse by Karina Halle
This could be deliciously spooky – I really love a good horror and the plot of this series would definitely make for some really creepy movies.
8. Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta
This is currently being adapted by the author into a film script – if Looking for Alibrandi is any indication, this could also be fantastic.
9. The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
This is one of my new favourite series ever and it would make a great movie. Blue and the boys would be amazing on the big screen.
10. Graffiti Moon by Cath Crowley
This could have a very Nick and Norah feel to it (I really enjoyed the movie adaptation of the David Levithan and Rachel Cohn penned book).
Angelfall! Anna and the French Kiss! Yes PLEASE!
I know right? Both would be amazing!! 😀
Anna and French Kiss! And Lola and the Boy Next Door too!
Isla too (I have faith that it will be terrific as well)!! 😀
I enjoy zombies myself and would love to see the Benny Imura series by Jonathan Maberry made into movies. I can’t think of any good angel movies, so I’d be absolutely on board with an Angelfall movie. As for The Raven Boys, I might consider the book too sacred for a movie. I’d need a lot of convincing.
I really need to read Jonathan Maberry at some point. Angelfall would translate pretty well I think. The Raven Boys would be trickier to put off but in the right hands maybe… 🙂
I think The Raven Boys film adaptation is happening! Also yes on Anna and the French Kiss!
Ooooh interesting news about The Raven Boys…Anna would make a great film, I think! 😉
Angelfall would be great! I think it could be better as a series if they explored more back story that currently isn’t there now. Although I wouldn’t be upset with a movie!
A series would maybe work better (it did for ASoIaF / Game of Thrones).
[…] Brin’s Book Blog […]
Oh, fun! I’ve finally found another blogger who chose Books They Want as Movies as their freebie! Great list, Brin:) (Especially liking Anna & The French Kiss – the setting alone would be enough to see this film!)
Here’s my Top Ten Books I Want to See as Movies, if you want to check them out! 🙂
Great minds thinking alike and all that…lol 😉
I think Anna and the French Kiss would be a great movie too – the Parisian alone would be enough you’re totally right!
I have just checked out your TTT. Great list. I think from what I have heard of it Code Name Verity would be a fantastic movie – I really need to get round to reading the book soon. The Forgotten Garden was a great book – it would make a really interesting film if it was done right. 🙂
