Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
I remember doing this topic back in 2013 (beware the bad formatting), and it was one of the first TTT posts I ever did. I can’t believe it’s been a year and a half since then! Anyway, enough with the reminiscing. These are my
Top Ten Books I’d Love To See As A Film/TV Show
1. A Darker Shade of Magic by V. E. Schwab
Because magic. And parallel worlds. What more could you want?
2. Dangerous Girls by Abigail Haas
I just think a YA thriller would be so good! And this book has so many twists and turns, especially that ending.
3. Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein
Despite the fact that I would cry buckets if this were a film, I think if it was done well it could be a great film! And also absolutely heartbreaking.
4. Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson
This would be such a cute contemporary with a focus on friendship. Yes, there’s romance, but there’s so much friendship and cuteness! Seriously, someone make me happy YA contemporary film. You know, one where nobody dies at the end.
5. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
So this one would be a little weird, but imagine the circus themes! They’d be so magical and enchanting and ugh. Just imagine it.
The TV Shows
6. The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson
A tv show could do this world so much justice. Yes, it would be super expensive to recreate the world of the Mistborn, but it could go into so much detail! And I’d love to see Vin and Kelsier and the gang just doing their thing.
7. Heist Society by Ally Carter
So right now I’m just imagining a show were Kat and friends just go and steal things in a really complicated manner. To be honest, I just want thieves and heists and action.
8. Cinder by Marissa Meyer
SCI-FI! Because there aren’t many sci-fi tv shows. Apart from The 100, which is awesome, so clearly we need more. Please?
9. Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson
Yes, it’s another Sanderson book, but so what? Superhero stuff is doing so well at the moment, so I bet people would love Steelheart. Especially seeing as the heroes are all humans and it’s the villains who have the superpowers.
10. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
Assassins! Murders! Celaena and Chaol! It would be amazing and wonderful and it would have to be a tv show to do it any justice.
On another note, wouldn’t this kid make the perfect little Celaena? (I recommend skipping to 1:22).
So, what books would you like to see be made into films or tv shows? Do you agree with any of my choices?
