TOP ‘TEN’ TUESDAY: Books I’d Love To See As Movies/TV Shows

Smaller Top Ten

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish once a week, and this week’s list is books I’d love to see as either movies or TV shows. I doubt I’m going to get ten books in this list because a lot are already decent movies, and some I just don’t want to be put on the screen like that. So here’s what I’ve got:

Number one: The Bone Season Series by Samantha Shannon

For those of you who follow my blog you know I am loving this series. I think this would do great as movie, if done correctly. If not done correctly it would be one of those movies which flops completely. Also I think Carrie Hope Fletcher would make a great Paige Mahoney.

Number two: The Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini

The first book Eragon was made into a movie, and I really want to forget I ever watched that. I think if this was remade into either better movies, or a TV show, it might work. But the issue I have with books turned into TV shows is that they tend to deviate from the books quite a lot, so if that ever happens to these books I’m going to take this back.

Number three: Throne of Glass Series by Sarah J. Maas

Who doesn’t want to watch a movie where a kick ass female assassin tries to win her freedom? I say movie because I think it would definitely be quite different from the books if it was ever made into a TV show.

Number four: Drop Zone by Andy McNab

I think this would make a great action movie, filled with drama and skydiving.

Number five: Every Day by David Levithan

This is one of the few books I would ever say this about, but if this was turned into a TV show I think it would work if it deviated from the book and the plot was made more intricate. Well, as intricate as a book about a being that possesses a different persons body each day can get.

Number seven: The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt

I was just looking through the books I read recently and I saw this, and realised that this would work well as a TV show. While I wasn’t a big fan of the book itself, the plot is interesting, and a TV show would show the development Theo goes through well.

Number eight: Harry Potter Series by J. K. Rowling 

These are obviously movies, but if the books were a TV series I think that would be amazing, and definitely something I would watch.

And that’s all I could come up with! I don’t suppose you have any ideas of what I could add to this list? Also if you have a TTT list leave the link in the comments because I want to check it out.

  1. I tried reading Eragon when I was in elementary school and couldn’t get passed 100 pages at the time. It didn’t help that I saw the film and absolutely hated that. But I’m willing to try again now, maybe I’ll like it better!

    1. Oh God, that movie was awful! The books are so much better, but the descriptions make it hard to get into. But when you do get into it it’s hard to put the books down.
