Time for Top Ten Tuesday again!! This week we get to list our ten books that we wish were made into tv or movies. This list gets the contingency that we live in a perfect world and the book would have no chance of getting mangled by Hollywood!!
Innocence-- This thrilling book about parkour and secret organizations would make for a good movie OR intriguing TV series. I vote TV so I could experience the sexual tension between Adam and Rachel on a weekly basis. See my review for this great Indie book Here.
Anna and the French Kiss-- just so I can see St. Clair. Now. Does this need more of an explanation??
The World of Shannara-- Not sure how they would do this. Lengthy movie or epically long TV series?? Terry Brooks writes with such detail and beauty I would just love to see it on the screen.
Harry Potter-- Yes. I did say Harry Potter. I would think it the best thing ever if they made a TV series about the world of Harry Potter. Follow some new wizards through their years at Hogwarts?? Anybody? Tell me I am not the only one who would be glued to my TV!!
Redeeming Love -- This book is simply the best. Based of the Bible book Hosea, Michael feels led by God to marry a prostitute, Angel. As she repeatedly runs away from him, he continually accepts her back and keeps her safe with unconditional love. This book would be the romance movie of the YEAR!
Don't Turn Around-- This book and it's sequel would be GREAT Bourne-esque movies. Except...creepier. And not a lot of shooting...Okay. Nothing like Bourne. The thrills and chills would still get me to pay to see it in theaters!!
Jellicoe Road-- I think I need to give this book another read. I started off confused, and never stopped. Everyone raves about it, and I did think it was good, but not fantastic. I think I missed out on something. If they made this into a movie, I could save myself the reading time!!
The Boyfriend App-- Okay. If anyone follows my goodreads they will see I gave this one 2 stars. So why add it here? Unfortunately because of the short, precise way it was written, the book is already great fodder for movie scripting. The only way this book would make any sense as a movie is if they filmed it "Mean Girls" style. Then it would be funny, and I would be watching it on my couch!
Lastly, I would really love to see a good historical romance film. Maybe it is just my current mood, but I am in the mood to see some fancy dress, English accents, and good ole fashioned romance on my movie screens! Here is one I would pay to see: At Every Turn. It's not English, :(( , but it would be intriguing as it includes car races and a sneaky romance.
Wow. I surprise myself with how much harder it is to find good TV material than I thought. Somehow, most of the books I have read and would turn into movies: are already movies!! City of Bones...Princess Bride...Stardust...Lightning Thief...Princess Diaries...
How about you? Which books would you love to see on a weekly basis? Would you pay money to go see on the big screen?? Leave your TTT links below!
