Top Ten: Books I’d Like to See on the Big Screen

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish

Today I am sharing with you the top ten books that I would like to see adapted for tv or film. When done well, adaptations can be AWESOME and catapult a book into the forefront of the public’s minds.  

Boy Meets Boy by David Levithan: I could have picked any of his novels that I’ve read. I chose BMB as the secondary characters were as good as the main ones, and I would make this into a tv series if I had the choice. 

The CHERUB series by Robert Muchamore: Again, an awesome idea for a TV series. Each episode or set of episodes a different mission. Done properly, this would make my LIFE.

Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson: Such an emotional summer read, this would make an excellent movie. 

                The Screaming Staircase by Jonathan Stroud: The start of a new adventure packed series, I can already picture it on the big screen! 

            Second Chance Summer     The Screaming Staircase (Lockwood & Co, #1)

Geek Girl by Holly Smale: Funny yet brutally honest, I need more geeky films in my life! Especially when they involve Harriet and Toby. (And Harriet’s dad, of course). 

Dust Lands series by Moira Young: An amazing dystopian / postapocalyptic series. I love the unique style of this one, and am dying to read the third book! 

          Geek Girl (Geek Girl, #1)

  Between the Lines by Jodi Picoult and Samantha van Leer: This book is GORGEOUS and the illustrations really make it come to life (the irony, I know!). A film would be epic. 

The Timeriders series by Alex Scarrow: Similar to Muchamore’s CHERUB series, I can only imagine the endless adventures the Timeriders team could embark on.

The Gallagher Girls series by Ally Carter: While I haven’t read all the books in this series, I have really enjoyed it so far and the boarding school feel would make for perfect movie material.      

Half Brother by Kenneth Oppel: MONKEYS. No other explanation is needed.

Top Ten: Books I Wish Could’ve Had Sequels

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish

Today I am sharing with you the books I wish could have had sequels. I really enjoy standalones and the freedom they bring of not having to wait a year or years to find out what actually happens. However, there are some stories that I would just love to see more of the characters. These are in no particular order! 

Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell: One of the first books I thought of that I want a sequel to. Are you listening Rainbow?! This book was so perfect and emotional, but those three little words just left me wanting more! 

Boy Meets Boy by David Levithan: I thought this was a really beautiful story, and had some really awesome characters. Tony especially could do with his own book, and it would be great to see more of Paul and Noah. 

Between the Lines by Jodi Picoult and Samantha van Leer: To anyone who hasn’t read this already, READ IT. It is the perfect book for readers, as the book characters COME ALIVE.  Who wouldn’t want more book characters coming to life?! 

   Eleanor & Park   Boy Meets Boy   Between the Lines

    Memoirs of an Imaginary Friend by Matthew Dicks: Although I don’t think the book really warrants a sequel, it is written so beautifully. The concept and voice is so unique, that I think I would love more books from this perspective. 

Half Brother by Kenneth Oppel and Ape House by Sara Gruen: Both these books have an entirely different writing style, but they contain a common theme: MONKEYS. I just adore reading about apes and their ability to communicate with humans. More monkey books please!

Thats my choices this week. But wait, I hear you say, thats only five (technically six)! Well, in my opinion, virtually all books have sequels nowadays. And those that don’t either are for good reason (because I didn’t particularly enjoy them) or are just perfect entities that I just don’t wish to see more of. But more than likely they already have a sequel. Do you prefer a series or standalone? Do you agree/disagree with my choices? Link me to your TTT below!
