Top Ten Tuesday: Books Into Movies

I’m jumping into Top Ten Tuesday today. Because why not.

These are the top ten books/series that I would like to see developed into movies. Now, I live under a rock (with many other working parents of small children) and it is very possible that some (or all) of these are already movies in the making (or were released last weekend).

Newsflesh Trilogy

Hands down the best zombie story I know. And yes, I am including The Walking Dead.

Lunar Chronicles

I am pretty sure I lose people at the words “lunar people and cyborgs,” but words cannot express my love of this series.

Maisie Dobbs series

Perhaps this would make a better series. PBS, probably. There isn’t nearly enough sex and violence for HBO.

Daughter of Smoke & Bone series

Again, I lose people when I start talking about epic chimera and angel wars. But I’m pretty sure that could make some pretty rad movie scenes.

Across the Universe series

This is the end of human civilization movie the current human civilization is missing.

The Selection series

If The Bachelor can still be on the air (is The Bachelor still on the air?) then this could surely succeed at the box office.

Night Film

This would make such a great movie. It even has the word film in the title.

The Illusion of Separateness

I feel like this one would make an excellent Focus Features film.

Shade series

I adore this series. And I want to see all the kissing on the big screen.

Beautiful Ruins

Beautiful scenery + beautiful people + beautiful story = beautiful movie.

    It’s true. We parents just sit here and try to think of the last movie we’ve even seen. “Well…I started to watch this movie on Netflix last week, but then I fell asleep…”

    I would love to see Illusion of Separateness as a movie! It’s such a beautiful book and I would love to see a film show all of its gorgeous locations.

    Yes! The NEWSFLESH series made my TTT as well. CINDER was on my previous one and both THE SELECTION and ACROSS THE UNIVERSE were top contenders for the list both times. Great picks!

    Oh wow… You have an amazing list here! I should totally have had some of these on MY LIST. However, so agree with you about the LUNAR CHRONICLES. 🙂

    Happy Reading! Beth @ Perpetual New Girl

    YES to Night Film! That would make such a wonderful movie.
