Top Ten Tuesday: Books to Movies

May 1, 2012 Meme, Top Ten Tuesday 18

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and Bookish.

Top Ten Books that I’d like to see made into a movie.

I love seeing books made into movies… on the condition that they do a good job.  For every awesome movie like The Help there is an awesomely bad movie like Confessions of a Shopaholic.  So, even though I’d love to see these books made to movies I have reservations about them being done correctly.

2. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

    I’d like to add The Night Circus, although it would be tough to make it as magical as it is in my mind.

    Also the Bloody Jack series by L.A. Meyer

    I would love to see Deadly Cool as a TV show and Anna Dressed In Blood as a scary film. I know they were casting Life As We Knew It a while back. Not sure if they made it to production. If so, I imagine that it should come out soon!

    Yes to everything on your list, but I’d love to see someone other than Kate Hudson in the role of Darcy for Something Blue. Just not a fan of hers.

    I haven’t read a single thing on your list! I guess I have some more reading to do…

    That’s the risk of books being made into movies, they could very well suck. I’d like to see Something Blue made into a movie too. Hopefully soon.

    I have most of these on my TBR list, and I’m reading Delirium right now. Pretty good so far! Great list! And how’d you get that fancy graphic with all the covers like that? That’s really cool!

    I think Delirium/Pandemonium would make BEAUTIFUL movies, but I’d want them to incorporate some of the text into the movie. What made them so unique and heart-wrenching is Lauren Oliver’s writing. She is a poet and I think a lot of the beauty of her words could easily be lost in the wrong hands.

    As for Divergent… oh, Divergent. I would be an amazing movie, but I’m so nervous who they would pick for Four. I’m SO in love with Tobias (I was just having a conversation with a friend the other day that I’m actually pretty pissed he’s a fictional character LOL) that I’m terrified they’d do the same thing they did to Jace from TMI (VERY POOR casting). I just couldn’t handle that. :)

      Lauren Oliver’s writing is fantastic! I love Four (sorry, but he’ll always be Four, none of this Tobias nonsense) and would love to see this in a movie, but casting is such a tough call.

    Divergent would make such an epic movie. I haven’t read Mara yet, but from what I’ve heard, it would make a great movie too!

    Thanks for stopping by!
