Welcome to another contribution to the wildly popular blog meme, Top Ten Tuesday.  I skipped last week and this week’s Monday Check-In (out of the house early), so I figured I needed to get my butt in gear and post something today.  I was so tempted to skip though as I am really into my current read.  Anyway on with the show… This week they ask us to share:

June 2: Top Ten Books I’d Love To See As Movies/Tv Shows

There are a lot of books and series that I would love to see made into movies or shows…I think…I don’t really think about that when I read a book.  Most of the time actually when I really love a book I think, someday Hollywood is going to find this and completely ruin it with a movie.  Cause we all know the book is ALWAYS better.  My little caveat for this week’s list is that I am going to select books that are not already in the works for their own movie or show.  Awe, common that’s not fair…

Ten books, or series, I’d love to see on-screen.

  1. The Gargoyle Movie:  This was such a beautiful and interesting book.  So graphic and dark at times yet an amazing story of love.  I would go see it if it was made into a movie.
  2. California  Movie:  I thought this was a great book and would work well as a dystopian movie to warn us all against what might come if we don’t change our ways.
  3. Life As We Knew It (Last Survivors, #1) Movie:  This would be interesting to watch on the big screen, see life as we know it crumble under a natural disaster.
  4. Born in Blood (The Sentinels, #1)  Movie or TV:  This series could work for either big or little screen, but I think Marvel already has that market saturated with The Avengers franchise.
  5. Dead Witch Walking (The Hollows, #1) TV:  I would love to see a TV series based on this series, not an adaptation of one of the books, but a whole new set of adventures featuring Rachel and the gang.
  6. Last Train to Istanbul: A Novel Movie:  This was a powerful book and it should be made into a movie so the rest of the world knows about the actions taken by those brave Turkish diplomats in WWII.
  7. Some Girls Bite (Chicagoland Vampires, #1) TV:  This would be a fun series to set in Chicago, could be a lot of fun!
  8. First Grave on the Right (Charley Davidson, #1) TV: This would be great, but you have to cast Reyes right!  I wonder if Jason Momoa would be interested?
  9. Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs (Jane Jameson, #1) TV:  A weekly comedy set in this world would be a blast,  I’d watch.

 

There you have my list.  What books would you like to see turned into movies or tv shows.  Personally I think all of these would never live up to the print version, but that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t watch.
