Top Ten Tuesday (#6): Books as movies/TV adaptations


Top Ten Tuesday this week is about the books I would love to see as a movie/TV adaptation

1. Across the Universe trilogy by Beth Revis. How cool and visually impressive science fiction movie trilogy could be made of these books. I would definitely go to see them in the movies!

2. Delirium trilogy by Lauren Oliver. I think they tried to make a TV show out Delirium but I guess it flopped, or something (does anyone know more about this?). I would prefer if they made movies out of the books rather than a TV adaptations. 

3. Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout. YES! One of the many reasons why Lux movies would be great is that we could see actual physical Daemon Black, but also the cool light alien forms Luxens can adapt. 

4. Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini. Yes, I know they have made a movie out of Eragon, which by the way was awful! They completely raped the book, and I hope someone brave will try to make a remake out of it. Pretty please, with modern technology and with a budget big enough, the movie could be grrreat.

5. Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas. Yes, yes, yes. 

6. Gentleman Bastards series by Scott Lynch. How awesome TV series would these book make? I think they could make every episode 1,5h long just like BBC Sherlock's episodes are. Gentleman Bastards books are pretty eventful and epic, so they could be made into movies, but something tells me that TV adaptation would be pretty great as well.

7. If You Could See Me Now by Cecelia Ahern. I'm not usually a big fan of rom-coms but I think this one could change my mind. Granted that it is well casted and done!

8. The Future of Us by Jay Asher & Carolyn Mackler. How cute movie adaptation could be made of The Future of Us? I really want to see it!

9. Daughter of Smoke and Bone series by Laini Taylor. Just thinking about a movie adaptation of Daughter of Smoke and Bone gives me goose pumps! Think about how amazing the angels and chimaeras would look like. Think about Karou with her blue hair and Akiva with his burning eyes. Yes, please!

10. Angelfall by Susan Ee. Once again, a very visual survival/action/romance movie. I can already see the angels and the devastation of the city with own my mind's eye. I want this and all of the above happen so badly. Please, moviemakers, adapt these books into movies! 

Do you agree with me on these?

  2. The Future of Us could probably work as a tv show as well, if it was expanded on. Good choices!

  3. I really wish I'd put 'Throne of Glass' haha but I must have skipped over it. I wish we had the chance to see what the TV show of 'Delirium' was like before they scrapped it :(

    1. Well, next time you will remember it then. ;) My flatmate said right away that Delirium wouldn't make it, but I always hold on hope that it proceed to TV. I guess not. :(

  4. Throne of Glass is an absolute yes to me. On the one hand, I can't believe I haven't heard that it's already been optioned, on the other, I can see why, since it's sort of medieval in its world, and that's difficult to do on screen.

    1. That's is so true - they would need quite a big budget to make it even a little bit decent looking without even mentioning that Throne of Glass doesn't have too large fan base yet. But maybe someday. :) Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Maybe it will be optioned - I think there is more demand for sci-fi than maybe ever. :) Thanks for stopping by here!

  7. I love all of your pics! I'm especially excited to pick up Across the Universe sometime this month – I especially love books with strong visual elements. Thank you for stopping by my lists last Tuesday! :-)

    1. Across the Universe as a book is one of my favourites. :) I loved how Revis depicted the spaceship and everything going around in it. If you like books with visual, I think AtU will be to your tastes! Thanks for stopping by as well. :)
