Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the Broke and the BookishThis weeks topic is…a freebie! So I decided to list some books I thought would make good movies.
When You Were Mine by Rebecca Serle
This one is actually in the middle of some movie business. I haven’t heard much, but it looks like it has really good chances of hitting the big screen in the next few years, and why would it not?
Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver
This also has some movie buzz going around. It’s got the potential to be great, and I know I’d definitely go see it! It has all the stuff that attracts teens to the theater, and also has some of that deep, gushy stuff that’ll leave them thinking.
Matched by Ally Condie
Ever since I read this a while back, I’ve wanted to see it made into a movie. It has such amazing world-building, an interesting love triangle, and a mystery just beginning to unravel—just what you need in a good film!
Heist Society by Ally Carter
Amazingly this is the only Ally Carter book I’ve read, and I loved it. I don’t think I’ve seen a light-hearted teen spy movie for quite some time. Plenty of dark, heavy stuff, but we need some laughs!
Of Poseidon by Anna Banks
This book screams summertime romantic comedy! It’s packed with tons of great movie material, and you can never go wrong with mermaids.
Kat, Incorrigible by Stephanie Burgis
I like to think of Kat as the Ramona of the 19th century. She’d make for a great movie character, with all her charisma and charm. I like to think of her as an animated character, because I don’t know if an actress can capture Kat’s personality fully, and because the illustrations are just so cute!
Rapunzel’s Revenge by Shannon, Dean, and Nathan Hale
Actually, when I first read this, I imagined it as a video game. Basically the whole plot is Punzie and Jack performing tasks for various people, which was the main point of most computer games from my childhood. Nevertheless, I think this would be great as an animated movie!
The Selection by Kiera Cass
I know this almost made it onto the CW, and right now I’m hoping and praying that they’ll pick it up after all, because this book needs to see it’s way onto the big screen!
Cinder by Marissa Meyer
Cinder is just amazing. Fairy tales and dystopia have both been growing really popular in film lately, and so this is exactly what audiences would be looking for.
My Double Life by Janette Rallison
Any of her books would make great Disney Channel or ABC Family movies. They’re light-hearted, laugh out loud funny, cheesy goodness. I could very clearly see this as a movie in my head, more so than with any other book I’ve read. It’s a mix between Hannah Montana and the Parent Trap, only funnier. That’s something I want to watch!
