Top Ten Tuesday


Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the Broke and Bookish.

Hi guys! Can’t believe we’r halfway through the year already – where is it going??? This weeks TTT is top ten books that I’d like to see as films/TV Shows. This is a hard one, especially (and we all know it), the books are always better than the films! However, here are my choices, in no particular order:

10. dragonlance Dragonlance by Magaret Weis and Tracy Hickman. I have read both the Chronicles series and the Legends series and I think, if done right, these books would make epic films! Just like Lord of the Rings!

9. the walls around us The Walls Around Us by Nova Suma. Not entirely sure how they would film it to get the right atmosphere, but I reckon this could be quite creepy!

8. Shatter Me Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi. For anyone who knows me/follows my blog etc. will know that I absolutely adore this series! I would love to see what they could do with it on screen!

7. Splintered Splintered by A. G. Howard. I reckon Tim Burton’s imagination could handle this – what do you guys think?

6. the selection The Selection by Kiera Cass. I guess this one is technically cheating since Warner Bros recently bought the film rights for this series – but I am still looking forward to it!

5. say her name Say Her Name by James Dawson. My life is missing a decent horror movie – or maybe I just don’t scare easily? Either way, this could make for a good horror movie! 🙂

4. Daughter of smoke and bone Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor. Again, this could be a great film – if the film industry could handle such awesomness…

3. The Iron Trial The Iron Trials by Holly Black and Cassandra Clare. This would be a challenge because of the high risk that it would be just like Harry Potter!

2. rites of passage Rites of Passage by Joy N. Hensley. With a little bit of everything in this book – it could easily be a crowd pleaser if done right.

1. Dangerous Girls Dangerous Girls by Abigail Haas. Again, another challenge. If they got the psychology right and portrayed it in the right way, this could be as enjoyable as the book.

That’s it! What do you guys think? Feel free to leave opinions, answers and links in the comments section below.

    OHHH YES TO ALL OF THESE. *gulps* Dangerous Girls would be terrifying…but perfect if they got that suspense right. And Tim Burton absolutely 1000% needs to do Splintered. xD IMAGINE THE CUSTOMS AND SCENERY. I’m pretty much desperate to see that. I’d like to see Daughter of Smoke and Bone on screen….but at the same time, gah, so much of the beautifulness of that series is in the prose and I have nooo idea how it’d translate to screen. I’D SEE IT THOUGH.
    Here’s my TTT!

      They probably wouldn’t get it right though! It would be so hard to communicate on screen. Tim Burton’s imagination would probably do really amazing things to Splintered! it would be unreal. Again, Daughter of Smoke and Bone would be excellent if they got it right…Thanks for stopping by

    Dangerous Girls would be amazing on the big screen! I would love to see Say Her Name being adapted even though I think it would be too much for me. 😉

      I have been in search for a decent horror movie for a while now… I guess some people scare more than others! If it gets made, we can go together and you can hide behind my hair! 😛

    I would LOVE to see Daughter of Smoke and Bone on screen, that would be incredible! I’d also be very curious to see what they did with the Iron Trial! Great list!
    My TTT

      I guess it is technically cheating considering they are already making a film out of it – but I still can’t wait!
