This week is . . . Top Ten Tuesday Freebie! And today I have chosen to talk about the top ten books which I would love to see adapted onto screen — either into a movie, or a television show. I know that for some of these, their rights have been optioned off to various companies, but haven’t heard from in awhile, or haven’t actually been green-lit to start filming. So without further ado . . .
1. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas. You all should know by now I love these books. So I do not feel as though I have to state any reasons. And also, Chaol . . . On screen? HELL TO THE YES.
2. Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor. I think I read somewhere that the rights to make this a film have been bought — and my, this would make a wonderful film. Crossing my fingers that something does happen, because I love this book.
3. Storm by Brigid Kemmerer. Okay, okay — so I think this would make an amazing television show. It has so many great characters, different stories, and many things that would suit a televisions how well.
4. The Selection by Keira Cass. This was actually adapted into television by the CW, however both its chances of making a pilot never made it to air. Still, I would love it if another channel/company picked it up again. Whether it would make a good film? I don’t really think so, but as a television show it could be very enjoyable.
5. Cinder by Marissa Meyer. THIS WOULD BE AWESOME.
6. Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo. The Russian mythology . . . the Darkling . . . Yep. Enough said.
7. Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer. I cannot tell you how much I loved these books as a kid! I think it would make a really great great great movie.
8. Alanna: The First Adventure by Tamora Pierce. Again — a book series I loved as a kid (which I still do, by the way) and I would love to see an on-screen adaptation of them.
9. Graceling by Kristin Cashore. Funnily enough — I wasn’t a fan of this book. But would it make a good movie? Yes, yes I do. If it has good acting, good script writers, then I think it could be quite successful. I honestly think that this would be better to watch than read. (But that’s just me; plenty of people love love love the books. Just not me.)
10. The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson. I’d love to see this as a film.
What books would you like to see adapted into television or films? Let me know in the comments.
