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

toptentuesdayIt’s Tuesday again which means time for another round of Top Ten Tuesday; I like joining in of this meme because I have a set topic to work with. Top Ten Tuesday is a book blogger meme that is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and this week the theme is: Top Ten Books I Would Love To See As A Movie/TV Show. This is a little tricky, but I will give it a go.

  1. Ready Player One – I think this is a great nerdy world and I would make for a great more movie.
  2. Super Sad True Love Story – I love this world and would love to see what they can do with a TV show set in the world
  3. The Shining Girls – This is already in the works but the world does make for an interesting TV concept
  4. March Violets – Another world that would translate really well into a movie.
  5. The Shadow of the Wind – I doubt this will ever happen; Carlos Ruiz Zafón doesn’t want an adaptation.
  6. The Devil All the Time – A gritty gothic/noir story with deeply troubled and flawed character. Sounds like a winning combination.
  7. The City and The City – this is a weirdly complex world and a weirdly complex Sci-Fi movie is always fun.
  8. Tigers in Red Weather – I won’t spoil it but if you’ve read this book you might agree.
  9. The Dinner – Same as Tigers in Red Weather (but I think this would work well as a stage show).
  10. The Philip Marlowe Series – I know there have been some adaptations but Marlowe is such a great character and a TV show would be awesome. I would love a TV show with a hard-boiled detective as the lead.

    The City and The City by China Mieville? I’ve been wanting to read that. I’ve only read one other book by him, and I loved it, I thought it was wondrously imaginative. Now that you’ve reminded me about him, I’m going to push this book up on my TBR list. =) Also very intrigued with your review about The Shining Girls, adding that to my TBR list too!

    Thanks for sharing!

    Ready Player One has the potential to be as awesome as Tron, if done right of course. Can’t wait for The Shining Girls and I of course agree with you about The Devil All the Time. Great list. 🙂

    i remember wanting to see the Stephanie Plum series on the screen but the movie never matched up to the early books, it never captured that chemistry.
    I can’t wait to see Outlander on tv, but i hope i’m not disappointed like i was with Stephanie Plum.
    Shadow of the Wind would be great. I wouldn’t give up hope. I remember once i read an interview with Diana Gabaldon saying she wanted people to read the book so it wouldn’t be developed but now she thinks that perhaps seeing it on the screen will draw people to read it in book form. So maybe he’ll give in sometime in the future.
