I did a post similar to this when I first started my blog, I still would love to see adaptations off all the books on that list, but now that it’s been over two years I feel it’s time to revisit the topic. Even though there’s always a book being adapted, there usually books I haven’t read and don’t care to read, therefore it’s been a while since I’ve gotten really excited about a book to screen adaptation. Here’s five books I would be thrilled to see a good adaptation of.
Anything by Morgan Maston
I’ve read three of Morgan Matson’s books, I’ve enjoyed all of them. She has quickly become one of my favorite contemporary authors, I would love to see any of her books turned into a movie. They all have to potential to be a perfect summer movie.
I loved Geekerella and it would be great for it to get a movie, however I really want Starfield the fictional TV show the main character Elle is obsessed with to become a movie. Or a book, or well anything, the author did such a good job creating this fictional TV show and I want to see it get a story of its own. A Geekerella movie really would be great though, it could be so cute!
The Night Circus
This is on every list of books that should be movies and now that I’ve read it I understand why, it’s fantastical, and different then anything else I’ve read. The setting is so well done and detailed that you feel like your there, I would love to see The Night Circus come to life on screen.
Even though this was optioned forever ago for a movie, and there’s still no news about it, I’m still holding out hope for a Selection movie. I really love the aesthetic of this series, the beautiful gowns and grand palace setting, I think that would translate wonderfully to screen. I would love to see my favorite moments on the big screen, and relive all the wonderful drama and romance.
Six of Crows
It’s time for the Grisha verse to get adapted to screen. I would be exited for a Shadow and Bone movie, but I would rather Six of Crows get turned into a TV show. It has the potential to make a wonderful TV show, if done well. I want it to be extremely accurate to the books, and have all the best scenes.
What books would you like to see get adapted into movies or TV shows? Do you agree with my choices?
