Top Ten Tuesday (32)

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because they are particularly fond of lists at The Broke and the Bookish. They’d love to share their lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!





This weeks Top Ten topic is …

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

Hmm… this has never occurred to me before. I have seen a couple of films/tv programmes that started out as books and some have worked and some have not. I know this is supposed to be set in an “ideal world” so here goes…

1. The Iron Fey by Julie Kagawa (YA)

A film…possibly a mini-series. I’m not really sure.


2. The Demon’s Lexicon by Sarah Rees Brennan (YA)

This I think could work as a film.


3. The Curse Workers by Holly Black (YA)

This could be a tv mini-series I think. There’s a lot of potential with the magic and the mob tones.


4. The Song of the Lioness quartet by Tamora Pierce (MG/YA)

I think that this quartet has the potential to be a great film. It would be really amazing to see it on the big screen – to watch the epic battles and the magic.


5. The Hollows by Kim Harrison

Harrison’s world building is amazing. It would be kinda cool to see this as a tv series. There are so many brilliant characters and the plots are awesome and I think could be adapted well for the tv.


6. Any of the historical novels by Julia Quinn

These would, no doubt, make either an awesome mini-series. Quite a lot of her novels are interlocking, at least the characters are, so I think it would kinda work as a tv programme.


I’m sure there are more that could be converted into brilliant tv programmes/films BUT I cannot think of any more right now. To be honest, I’m not that keen on turning any of them into anything but books in real life but hypothetically those would be my choices.

Those were my Top Six Books I Would Love To See As A Movie/TV Show. What books would you like to see as films/tv programmes? Let me know in the comments below, or link back to your Top Ten post so I can see what makes your list.

  1. Oh, the Bridgerton novels, please! As a BBC-made miniseries. I’ve always described Quinn as Jane Austen crossed with Aaron Sorkin, and her dialog would film wonderfully!

    Also yes to the Iron Fey books, which might indeed do better as a series or miniseries. And almost anything by Tamora Pierce — I enjoy the Alanna books, but its the Protector of the Small quartet that made my TTT list.
