Top Ten Books I Would Love To See As A Movie/TV Show

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.  If your curious about this meme, visit Top Ten Tuesday where they have previous topics and upcoming topics listed as well.
Today's theme is top ten books that I would love to see made into a movie/T.V. show.  This is one seems harder because nowadays, it feels like every book out there is being made into a movie.  But, there are a few that I can think of.
1. Outlander by Diana Gabaldon - There's a good possibility we will finally see this one.  Word on the street is filming is set to begin this fall in Scotland with a premiere on Starz in 2014.

2. Insomnia by Stephen King - It seems like every Stephen King book gets made into a movie or TV series.  But, of course not one of my favorites!

3. Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder - I think this would make an excellent movie!  Plus Valek would be awesome on screen!

4. Graceling by Kristin Cashore - I think we need more movies with kick ass heroines!

5. The Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa - I actually think this would be a really good TV series if done right!

6. Between Shades of Grey by Ruta Sepetys - Think Schindler's List!

7. Fablehaven by Brandon Mull - It would have to be done in the same manor as Harry Potter, but it would be awesome to see!

8. The Luxe Series by Anna Godbersen - I would watch it just for the dresses!

9. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak - I had heard this was in the making and in further research discovered its due out this fall!
10. Any of Michelle Moran's books - I could use a good historical movie!


  1. I'm sort of looking forward to The Book Thief. But I'm nervous about it too. Great choices!

  2. Insomnia would make a great movie! It feels like the one Stephen King book they don't plan on making a movie. It would be so super creepy (and a little sad at the end.)

    My Top Ten

  3. I completely agree with Poison Study and the Iron Fey series! Valek, Ash and Puck on screen! *flails*

  4. Great choices - how did I forget Between Shades of Grey? It would make a good kleenex-ready movie.

    I'm also looking forward to The Book Thief. I recently posted the trailer on my blog, and now I'm nervous it will come across as too corny.

  5. Insomnia would be an amazing movie! Probably one that I would go see in theaters. Stephan King's movies tend to freak me out but I loved that book, so I'd have to go see it. I haven't finished The Book Thief yet, so I'm excited for the movie--I'm considering putting the book on hold and watching the movie first but I haven't decided. Great list!

    My TTT

  6. I'm totally with you on Graceling! I put it with my any Tamora Pierce novel or Throne of Glass entry on my list (it's cheating but I did stay down to 10!). But seriously, we need more girl badassery!

  7. How could I forget about Graceling?! That should be a movie, no doubt. I think it was optioned for film. I can't remember if a script or director have been attached at all though. Great list!

  8. Starz has cast Claire for the Outlander series
    Caitriona Balfe will be Claire.


I love comments!
