Top Ten Books I'd Love To See As Movies/TV Shows

Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday! As always, I am linking up over at The Broke and the Bookish, and this week I am talking about the top ten books I'd like to see as movies or television shows. Wow, I'm sorry I have been so MIA. With the school year wrapping up (5 days left!), things have been busy and hectic over here. I have every intention of getting back to my daily blogging next Tuesday once school is officially out for summer! For now, I thought that this TTT prompt would be a fun one to complete!

1. The Selection Series by Kiera Cass - I feel like this one would make a really fun television show. Sure, it's a lot like the Bachelor, but it's SO much better than that. I am only in the beginning of book two, but I love the characters, and I think that it would be fun to see them on the television screen.
2. My Heart and Other Black Holes by Jasmine Warga - I think that this would make a really great romantic drama movie for teens. I thought that the book was beautifully written, and while about a dark topic, it was not depressing. I think that they could do some wonderful things with it on the big screen.
3. Popular by Maya Van Wagenen - This would make for a really fun documentary style show/movie. If you have read the book, then you know it's a memoir about a girl who used this old how-to book in order to attempt to become popular. Seeing the steps fulfilled on the screen could prove to be pretty amusing!

4. The Testing by Joelle Charbonneau - This series would make a fantastic set of movies. It's another dystopian trilogy, and those have been doing pretty well in the box office, I would say. I enjoyed this far more than I enjoyed THG books, so I would love to see it turned into a movie.
5. SNOW LIKE ASHES by Sara Raasch - So far only the first book in this series has been released, and I already know that the whole series would make an incredible series of movies. This has been my favorite book so far this year, and I cannot wait for the next one. There is just the right amount of action and romance in this one to make it a perfect best selling film.
6. Some Boys by Parry Blount - I feel like this one could easily be made into one of those ABC Family television shows - you know the ones, like Pretty Little Liars and Bunheads. It's got a good plot and foundation, and they could certainly feed off the drama to make it into a full length show. 

7. Dear Killer by Katherine Ewell - This would definitely make for a very interesting movie, I think. It's not too often you have movies with teenage serial killers who take suggestions on who they should kill. I think it could be done well as long as cheesiness is avoided, no Lifetime movies!
8. The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer - I am sure that this one will probably show up on a lot of lists today, and for good reason. Would it not be incredible to see this world and the characters on the big screen? I think it would be completely amazing, and I do hope that it actually happens in the future.
9. The Screaming Divas by Suzanne Kamata - This one I COULD see becoming a good Lifetime movie, as it has all the necessary components (I do love me some Lifetime movies). It's a group of teenage girls, all dealing with different family/personal issues in life, coming together to form a band and deal with life. Screams Lifetime Original Movie, don't you think?

10. We Should Hang Out Sometime by Josh Sundquist - I don't think that a movie/show should be based on this book, but I do think that it could definitely spark an idea for a new reality show. Have people confront their exes about why they broke up, or didn't give them a chance to go out on a date. Could be super dramatic, right?


  1. We share Cinder, but you've reminded me how much I need to read The Testing and Snow Like Ashes!

    Check out my TTT.

  2. Certainly agree with you on Cinder/The Lunar Chronicles. I've not read The Selection yet, but it sounds like it could make a very fun movie.

  3. Great list!! I included The Selection as a TV show as well. I've never watched The Bachelor or The Bachelorette, but I would definitely watch The Selection.

    Here is my TTT: http://jacquesbooknook.blogspot.com/2015/06/top-ten-tuesday-books-i-would-love-to.html

  5. I haven't actually read any of these books yet, but a few have been on my TBR for a good while now! This post has definitely reminded me about them. I loved the reasons you gave though.

  6. OH! I really need to read My Heart and Other Black Holes! I met the author and she was super sweet but I wasn't in a reading mood at the time, so hopefully that can change this summer!

  7. I've been wanting to read My heart and other black holes. I just checked out Cinder from the library so I am hoping I can read it soon, I've seen it on a few lists already. I've been wanting to read We should hangout sometime too! I really need to get on the ball here with all these books.

  8. I haven't read any of these but you do have a couple on here that are on my TBR.

  9. Yes to Cinder! Definitely! I haven't read some of these but I've been meaning to read The Testing. It must be good since you'd like it made into a movie. :)

    My TTT!

  10. Definitely agree with Cinder and The Selection.
    The selection was already made into a TV show but it was not picked up (sadly)
    Great list!
