Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Books I’d Like to See As Movies
June 2, 2015
Top Ten Tuesday is a feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish in which they select a topic every week, and the rest of us get to make Top Ten lists based on that topic. This week’s topic: Top Ten Books I’d Love To See As Movies/Tv Shows. Wow! There are so many books I wouldn’t mind seeing as movies. I decided to go with the books that I’ve read most recently:
Young Adult Selections:
All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven – This is one of my all time favorite reads, and I’d love to see it as a movie. I think this has been optioned, and hopefully we’ll all be able to see it soon!
Challenger Deep by Neal Shusterman – Another teen book dealing with mental health issues that I think would make a great movie and would shed more light on an important topic.
The Testing by Joelle Charbonneau – I’d love to see this world come alive on the big screen. There is a movie option on this one as well.
Historical Fiction Selections:
Dollface by Renee Rosen – This novel is set during a time period that would be fun to see in a movie. I think the story and the characters would draw in any audience.
Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline – I learned so much when I read this book, and I think it would be great for others to learn about this period of history through a movie.
Playing for the Commandant by Suzy Zail – I thought this book put a different spin on the typical World War II story, and I’d love to see it play out on the big screen.
Contemporary Adult Selections:
Nowhere But Home by Liza Palmer – The characters and setting in this book were so engaging, and I think this could end up being the next big screen hit.
The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin – This is another book with great characters and a great setting that would be sure to get great movie reviews.
Me Before You by Jojo Moyes – I so loved this story, and I think it would be quite the tear jerker for the audience who would be watching.
The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins – This would be an excellent suspense movie sure to draw big crowds.
