Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish featuring a new top ten list each week. Everyone can participate- head on over to their blog and sign up.
This week’s topic is Top 10 Books I’d like to see be made into movies. Many times a movie version of a book doesn’t live up to the book version. I would hope for the best that these 10 would translate well as films:
1. Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan – This book is set in New York during the holidays. Many New York landmarks make an appearance and it has the potential to be a lot of fun.
2. If I Stay by Gayle Forman – I think at one point this was going to be made and may still be in development. It could be amazing if all the right elements come into place.
3. Heist Society by Ally Carter – When I read this teen heist book it was easy to visualize it as a movie.
4. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins – It would fun to see Anna’s adventures in Paris on the big screen.
5. Delirium by Lauren Oliver – This dystopian romance has a great story that could appeal to teens and adults.
6. Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead – I think this one may be in the early stages of development. It’s a great story with action, romance, friendship, and vampires of course. Are people ready for another vampire franchise?
7. The Iron King by Julie Kagawa – Faeries, action, romance, with great characters. I’m skeptical that it could work as a movie, but it would be a blast if done well.
8. Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson – A road trip romance with an awesome soundtrack. This could be a great Summer movie.
9. Nevermore by Kelly Creagh – The goth and the cheerleader story set in the world of Edgar Allen Poe. Maybe a Tim Burton movie?
10. Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver – This book already reminds me of two favorite movies – Mean Girls and Groundhog Day. This is another one that I visualized as a movie and think it would make a successful film adaptation.
In terms of upcoming book movies, I’m really looking forward to The Hunger Games movie next year. So far the casting is controversial, but I hope they can pull it off.
