Top Ten Books I’d Like to See Made Into a Movie
hosted by Broke and the Bookish
10. Artemis Fowl by Colfer Eoin
I would love to get to see Artemis and Butler in the flesh. Plus, I think there would be chances for witty dialogue and enough action to keep people interested.
9. Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
The gothic movies are so much fun because there’s the opportunity to be so visual pleasing. (Love him or hate him, you have to admit that Tim Burton’s movies look pretty cool!) This book is pretty lengthy, so the movie would have to cut down on a lot, but I think that would only increase the adventure and mystery of the story.
8. Across the Universe by Beth Revis
This book suffers from lagging bits and plot points that seem to lead no where. I think a movie would allow the focus to be on the more interesting plot points, and other, useless, things could easily be cut out.
7. Going Bovine by Libba Bray
Contemporary with a mix of the fantastical, this book would be as pleasing on a screen as it would be in page form. Plus, it would be really cool to see how they showed the multiple realities…
6. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
Okay, so maybe I just really want to St Clair and hear all the awesome accents and watch a movie set in Paris. So sue me.
5. The Maze Runner by James Dashner
I don’t want to fall into the “it’s just like [insert popular book-movie franchise here],” but seriously, this book is as made for the silver screen as The Hunger Games.
4. The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart
I just really want to see some kick ass contemporary heroines in movies. This would make a very “Easy A”-esque movie, and people loved Easy A, right?
3. Gallagher Girls series by Ally Carter
OMG CAN YOU IMAGINE! No really, imagine it. These are the kind of movies I want young girls to be watching! For real. Disney, get on this!
2. I Want to Go Home by Gordon Korman
It is kind of my dream to write the screen play for this book and see it become a movie. It is such a perfect movie book. It’s hilarious and there’s so much dialogue and the action would be perfect and my heart aches just thinking about it.
1. Cinder by Marissa Meyer
I need more physical Prince Kai’s to stalk. Plus, I would LOVE to see New Beijing on screen. And the Lunars. The entire Lunar Chronicles, to be honest. Can this please happen?
No, seriously. This needs to happen.
