Top Ten Tuesday #10: 10 Books I'd Love to See as Movies/TV Shows


10 Books I'd Love To See As Movies/TV Shows

If I had my way, every book should have an accompanying movie/tv show. Imagine getting to see all the hot and gorgeous characters 'in the flesh'. How awesome would that be?
p.s. click on the covers to go to their Goodreads pages

Contemporaries
     
Eleanor & Park/Attachments: I really enjoyed these two books and being a sucker for contemporary movies, I would love to see this translate to the big screen!

On the Island: It would be interesting to actually watch T.J and Anna go through all the obstacles they face when they were on the island! I love movies/shows were characters are stranded. :P

Fallen: I think I am too old for this series now, it just doesn't appeal to me anymore. Also, the summary makes the book sound so predictable. Meh.

The Princess Diaries series: Yes there are already 2 movies out there but they were not that good and it would be so amazing if there was an entire tv series about Mia and Michael <3 Haha pardon me but I am just such a die-hard fan of this 'kiddy' series.
Dystopians/Fantasies
      
The Queen of the Tearling: This is already becoming a movie so I am totally cheating here but I just wanted to show my support! The world building in the book was really strange so I can't wait to see how it translates to the big screen!

The Book Ivy: The only reason for this is I want to see who would be portraying Bishop, he is such a sweetie! *heart eyes*

A Court of Thorns and Roses: The world just sounds so amazing and the descriptions were so detailed that I could visualise everything while I was reading it. The plot was also perfectly paced! This would make a great movie!

The Final Empire: This is another one with a great world plus an amazing magic system! It would be so cool to see all the action scenes in the movies!

 
Throne of Glass: Who doesn't wanna see Celaena in action? This would make a really good movie with all the action and crazy plot twists!

The Harry Potter series: I saved the best for the last. You might be wondering: this already has a ton of movies, why is this on the list!? Hear me out, folks. The movies were entertaining enough but so much got cut out because of the limits of a movie, right? What if we could have a weekly dose of Harry Potter in the form of a TV series (with 20 season, of course), where everything can happen at a slower, more delicious pace???
Imagine getting to support a quidditch match every few episodes,
the weekly doses of sass from Hermione Granger,

attending magic classes with the cast every week,

seeing them together every week would make our weeks so much better

and lastly, imagine all the feels every single episode
Yea, this is a spoiler but if you have't read/watch the series by now, you suck.
Now go read/at least watch the (not-as-good) movies.
Hope you enjoyed this post! :)
Would you be as excited if any of these became movies/tv shows?

  1. Also, with a Harry Potter TV show with new actors, new writers, and new screenplays we would not only get EVERYTHING AWESOME left out of the movies, but characters in the movies (ehm, ehm, GINNY ehm, ehm) could be as awesome as Rowling wrote them.

    1. But I am attached to the actors *hugs tightly* haha and yes we would have everything we ever wanted from the franchise!!

      Thanks for dropping by! :)

  2. I'm a Princess Diaries fan too! The movie (although good if you can disassociate it with the books) was decent, it made me upset that it didn't stick to the storyline more. Anne Hathaway was a good Mia, but I didn't think that Grandmere was evil enough in the movies.

    1. Urgh yah Grandmere was a completely different character in the movie! The movies felt rushed and I preferred the book's pacing. Thanks for dropping by! :)

  3. Harry Potter is never on my favorite's list (sacrilegious, I know!), but I do love the idea of a TV series. There are enough characters and stories to be told for a shorter, but longer-term format.

    Here's my list: http://insearchoftheendofthesidewalk.com/2015/06/01/top-ten-tuesday-top-ten-books-id-love-to-see-as-moviestv-shows/

    1. NOOOOOO! But thanks for agreeing about the TV series :P And yes there is so much detail in the story that would make for a great tv series!

      Thanks for dropping by! :)

  4. YES TO THE FINAL EMPIRE. I'm so annoyed at myself for forgetting that one for my list, but seriously?! That book was born for the screen with all the powers and metal manipulation. *flails* I'd like to see Throne of Glass as a TV series, but I guess that'll never happen with Game of Thrones a) having a similar title, and b) being the same genre. hehe. BUT ANYWAY. I can't wait for the Tearling movie either!!
    Here's my TTT!

    1. YES! All the special effects would be so amazing~
      That was what I was thinking too. :( But a girl can dream! I am really hoping that the Tearling movie turns out awesome!

      Thanks for dropping by!

  5. Gah an HP tv series would be awesome! Although I really REALLY want a marauder's era tv series, that would just make my life quite frankly. :) Love your choices, and completely agree with you on a lot of these, there are so many books that need to be made visual asap!

  6. Oh my, YES, how amazing would a Harry Potter TV show be?! And I agree with The Princess Diaries, I'd love more Mia and Michael! Great list! :)

  7. I like the Harry Potter movies, and I can't really imagine a different cast playing the characters so whilst I see what you mean with the TV series, I'm satisfied with the movies. I also liked The Princess Diaries movie but I was never that attached to the books so that's probably why. I so want to see a Throne of Glass movie, it was on my list this week too. Ugh, A Court of Thorns and Roses sounds so good, I just want to read it so badly!

  8. Mistborn topped my list for the very same reason - the fight scenes would be incredible!! I really hope it gets made someday...

  9. I would love an Attachments movie!!! That is my favorite Rainbow Rowell book and it would be a cute movie. On the Island would be awesome. I agree to liking the stranded on an island premise in a movie/on tv. Great list!

    1. I pictured Attachments as a movie the entire time I was reading it, they should hire me as the director! :P I would watch ANYTHING set on an island!

  10. Princess Diaries! I love that series! And though I really liked the first Princess Diaries movies, I didn't like the second one.
    And yes to the HP TV series! We should have a season for each book!:)

  11. Imagine an animated Harry Potter series. If it were animated they could have all the Magical creatures mentioned, rather than a select few. They could put everything in.

  12. I think any Rainbow rowel book at this point would be a good movie. If they did it right. :) And On the Island too- not familiar with that one, but I'm a sucker for island movies too.
