Welcome to another contribution to the wildly popular Top Ten Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week she asks us to share lists on the following:
July 10: TTT Throwback
This week we get to pick a previous TTT topic that we might have missed out on or simply want to revisit. After reviewing the list of past topics I’ve settled on #43 Books I want to see as movies. This feels like a fairly fresh topic and not similar to ones we might have done recently. I am going to put one twist on the topic, however, I am going to select which books or series I would like to see as tv shows.
Ten books that I’d like to see made into tv shows.
- The Bloodhound Files: The basis of this series is an FBI profiler is taken into a parallel dimension where earth evolved a little differently. Vampires, Weres, and Golems are all real and make up most of the world. Humans, on the other hand, are almost extinct. Not having the expertise to deal with a problem they are facing they pull the lead character into their timeline and convince/force her to solve cases for her. I could see this as a weekly show.
- Night Huntress: I know, I know this tv show would essentially be a Buffy the Vampire Slayer rip-off. I don’t really care, though, and would love to see this series as a tv show.
- Charley Davidson: Okay so maybe this series shows up on my blog quite often recently. Mainly due to my reread of the series. I strongly feel that this could be a great tv show. The characters, the eye candy, the mystery. I would turn in every single week for sure!
- Chicagoland Vampires: Chicago and Witches and Vampires and Shifters and Fae…Oh, my! This show could have some great location shots in Chi-town. You could also feature the food along with famous landmarks. Then there is the whole paranormal element that hasn’t been done in a Chicago tv series that I can think of.
- I often thought while reading this book that it would make a great detective series on tv. Set in the near future and features a lead character detective who also has a major disability. This could really take off on tv and open people’s minds to think of people with disabilities as functioning members of society.
- Now this series didn’t follow the crew of the Wayfarer into book two but I think a series following a rough and tumble group of misfits whose job is to create tunnels across the universe could be a lot of fun. A rougher version of Star Trek maybe.
- The Hollows: A show about a bounty hunter in a skewed reality that looks and feels a bit like the Earth we know but all the paranormal and supernatural elements have come out of the closet.
- This might work better as a mini-series as I’m not sure how you could create a recurring plot out of the story.
- This book also might be difficult to stretch out over several seasons. It would be interesting to see a bit of history before the events of the book so maybe a season or three if you then continue to what happens after the book finishes too.
- Blackdagger Brotherhood: I would so love to see this series and all its glory in a tv show format. Not for regular tv like CBS or NBC. Oh no, I want all the violence, language, and sex up on the screen so this would need to be handled like the Sookie Stackhouse or Game of Thrones series and be put on pay tv.
