Top Five Books I'd Love To See As Movies/Tv Shows

Top Ten Tuesday is an original meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Click here for information.

1. The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer. A YA series with more than one complex female lead, who are also racially diverse, and a global setting that spans three continents plus the moon. We need a movie like this. My one request to whoever ends up making this movie is: please, please, don't whitewash the characters. 

2. Animorphs by K.A. Applegate. An oldie but a goodie. I know there was a TV show based on the books already, but I think it's due for an update. Special effect technologies have come so far since the 90's, and with the current audience so open to YA/science fiction genre, I imagine this can be a successful TV show. Maybe up the characters' age a little and update some of the reference, but otherwise Animorphs has a lot of material for a fascinating TV series. Aliens, teenagers kicking butts, moral dilemmas, a touch of romance - what else do you need?

3. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. I want this as a movie solely to see all those beautiful descriptions come to life. It might be a big ask to get all the details correct, but I think it can absolutely be a visually stunning film. With the right actors, it can be a lovely romance too. 

4. Nancy Drew. I know there has been movies and TV movies, but I haven't liked any of them. With the right update though, I think it could be a cool mystery TV series.

5. Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo. All the time I was reading it, I kept thinking it would make a gorgeous movie. It has an interesting landscape that will translate well to film. Plus, there is plenty of action sequences.


  1. Oh wow... we have LUNAR CHRONICLES! I should totally have had some of these on MY LIST and nearly put Nancy Drew too because like you, none of the movies or tv shows have done these ladies justice.

    Happy Reading! Beth @ Perpetual New Girl

    1. Right?! I need a Nancy Drew adaptation that shows off her sassiness as well as her intelligence, and her friends too! Thank you for stopping by, Beth! :)
