Top 10 Books I'd Like to See As Movies/TV Shows

6 comments

This is a tricky one because, although I love watching movies and TV, when it comes to book adaptations...so much can go wrong. Some books translate brilliantly from page to screen, others become good (though completely different from the source material), and others are just plain bad. I'm sure you can think of at least one really BAD book-to-movie/TV.

In that way, I'd almost rather see visual adaptations of books I don't plan on reading. That way, I can still experience those stories without tainting the reading experience of books I love. But part of me would really love to see my favorite stories brought to life, too...



That's it for this round of 10! Thanks for stopping by and check back tomorrow for this week's Updates! In which I discuss my BEA haul, BookitCon, and my need for a beach day. :)

    1. I'm sure the film rights have been optioned already. We'll have to dig into this and see what the likelihood is. :)

  2. I can't believe I didn't even think of Cinder! That would be a great series to do as movies.

    1. I kind of hope they do...and kind of hope they don't. It could be so wonderful! Or so cringe-worthy. :/

    1. Unfortunate, but yes, it's very likely they would ruin it. Especially considering all the YA adaptation flops out there--Eragon, Vampire Academy, Beautiful Creatures, Mortal Instruments, Inkheart, Number Four...need I go on? ;)
