Top Ten Books I Would Love To See As A Movie/TV Show (set in a perfect which movies don't butcher the books we love.)

Angelfall by Susan Ee : I would love to see as a movie. The writing is very detailed and would be perfect for the big screen. A movie based on Angels hasn't been done in a very long time, at least a memorable one. Well this one would be the perfect Angel Apocalypse!

J.R. Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood Series: THIS SERIES WOULD BE PERFECT FOR TV ON SHOWTIME, HBO OR STARZ. Where they can get bloody and have sexy times without getting fined for going over the top. A movie would not be enough time with these characters that we are obsessed with. Each book should be its own season, lol. 

House of Night series written by P.C. Cast & Kristin Cast: this series has the right kind of formula to be a good TV series on like the CW network. The teen paranormal angst drama fits what we love about the CW and its current shows. 

Molly McAdams' Taking Chances & Stealing Harper : These books were the first books ever to actually get tears to fall from my eyes and not just regular tears, no the ugly kind. So since I'm a visual person and movies always make me cry, I can imagine how these books on the big screen would affect me. I would leave movie theater with the front of my shirt drenched in tears. 

Heidi McLaughlin's Beaumont Series : Forever My Girl, My Everything and My Unexpected Forever would work for me on both big screen and TV. If you go with big screen, it can be more about the music and if you go with TV, it can be like a soap type show. Are you kidding real reason is just to see Liam and Harrison!!! Forever My Girl has been optioned, so cross your fingers they go forward with it. 

Julie Kagawa's Iron Fey Series : Ive been saying this since I read the first book in the series. THIS SERIES IS PERFECT FOR TV OR BIG SCREEN. If you have read this series, you know why. Its so cinematic when you read it. You want to be a part of the Never Never. Julie writes so poetically vivid, if that makes sense. It would be the year's best Fantasy movie or TV series. 

Julie Kagawa's Blood of Eden Series : Yes Julie Kagawa again, her books are that freaking fantastic. It the way she writes. You can easily visualize the story in your mind. Seeing it in my mind is great but even better when its on a movie screen. Blood of Eden is the perfect dystopian paranormal mix for that screen. 

His Fair Assassin Series written by Robin LaFevers : I HAVE NO IDEA WHY THIS SERIES HASN'T BEEN OPTIONED YET! It should be! If I had the money I would myself. This series has all the right ingredients to make it a stellar movie. You have historical elements, violence, romance and vivid settings. I hope someone in Hollywood will find this jem and bring it to life!

Miranda Kenneally's Hundred Oaks Series : These books would be a perfect fit for TV. It's based in the same town or high school and has recurring characters you might recognized from a previous book. So they can be read as stand-alones but better in order, so you will recognize that character if they make a cameo. All the characters are great and would be entertaining to watch on a weekly basis. The drama of what happens next in Hundred Oaks. Just imagine getting to watch Jordan play football and show that girls can be as great as boys in sports while falling in love with her competition. 

Jenny Han's The Summer I Turned Pretty Series : Again another set of books that just shout out made for TV. I can see this series on either ABC family or The CW network. Its has everything needed to pull in ratings on a nightly basis. Plus its based by the beach, LOVE!

I can literally sit here all day typing every book or series I've read that I'd love to see on the big screen. Pretty much 75% of the books I have read I'd probably say I'd watch if they were optioned and made for TV or film. Who knows, now that its popular in Hollywood to make books into film, it might happen.


  1. I've been wanting to read something by Julie Kagawa. This is definitely more encouragement to do so.

  2. I've not read any of the books on your list, but will definitely be adding some of them to my to-read list. I especially like the sound of the Hundred Oaks and The Summer I Turned Pretty series.
