Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
This week's Top Ten Topic is "Ten Books I'd Love To See As Movies/TV Shows". Ok, I think I can do this...
Shutter by Courtney Alameda
This would make the most badass tv show or movie! Since it reminds me of Supernatural (with a classic horror twist) and it has the potential for stand alone episodes as well as "mythology" episodes, I think this would work well on tv. BUT, it's rather gory, so a movie could be better for special effects. This would not need big stars to carry it because there is so much action and plot.
Starbound trilogy by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner
This series would make three awesome movies. The third book isn't out yet, but I still want it to be made into a movie. There is SO MUCH potential here! I should start thinking about dream casting for Tarver.
The Grisha trilogy by Leigh Bardugo
This would be beyond amazing as movies. I've heard rumors about it actually happening, but nothing for a while.
Under the Never Sky trilogy by Veronica Rossi
This sci-fi/dystopian series would make fantastic movies!
The Dark House series by Laurie Faria Stolarz
These books read like a classic 90s horror movie (Scream, I Know What You Did Last Summer), they would make great movies. I'd go see them.
The Brokenhearted series by Amelia Kahaney
This would make an awesome tv show. It's a lot like Smallville, Arrow and The Flash. It's a kickass superhero origin story and the main character is a female, which is much needed on tv.
Throne of Glass series by Sarah J Maas
If Game of Thrones can be done, I say, so can can Throne of Glass be!
The Murder Complex series by Lindsay Cummings
This dark, dystopian series would make a good tv show. I'd say tv because there's a lot of backstory that would involve flashbacks. There's a lot of story and a lot of murder. It's awesome.
Phoenix Island by John Dixon
I know, technically this WAS a tv show already. Phoenix Island "inspired" the show Intelligence that was on CBS about a year or so ago, but it deviated SO MUCH from the book's source material that it was unrecognizable. According to John, as soon as Josh Holloway (LOST) was interested and signed on, everything changed. The characters were aged up and Phoenix Island became just a backstory. They were no longer teens fighting for survival in a deadly boot camp, but FBI agents. It would be nice to see the original story get a chance to shine. From what I hear...it's very possible that will happen. The rights go back to him soon and there is definite interest in the story since other movies with a similar target audience did so well (The Maze Runner).
Rot & Ruin series by Jonathan Maberry
I've heard rumors for a long time that this zombie series was going to be made into a movie, but i haven't heard anything for a while. I'd be really surprised if it doesn't see the big or small screen eventually since it actually takes place in the Walking Dead world.
Well, that's ten!
What books do you want to see made into movies or tv shows?
