Top Ten Books I’d Like to See as Movies/TV Shows

Every Tuesday the ladies over at The Broke and the Bookish host a book related Top 10.


This week’s theme is books that I would like to see as TV shows / movies.  I’m not going to duplicate any of my choices from 2012 or 2013, but I’ve read plenty of books since that I’d love to see on the large or small screen.

Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas – this is a super obvious choice.  Is there anyone who has read these who doesn’t think they would make amazing movies?

BTW – When reading these I have always seen Taylor Momsen as Celaena.  I wouldn’t actually want her to play the part – she’s just who I pictured.  I see Grant Gustin as Dorian and I would love for that to happen. No ideas for Chaol.

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell – I read this article last year and it’s the best case ever for why Fangirl would make an amazing movie.

Landline by Rainbow Rowell – This book was built to be a romantic comedy. There’s even a scene running through an airport – classic rom-com. Basically I want to see any book of Rainbow’s as a movie.


Simon vs. the Homo Sapien’s Agenda by Becky Albertalli – I just read this and it’s so much fun.  I think it would be a charming movie.  Or TV show.

Boomerang by Noelle August – I think this book would make a really cute romantic comedy.  I also think with some adjustments this series would make a fun TV show.  Unfortunately A to Z did the comedy set at a dating site last year very badly so it would be an uphill battle to make it happen.

The Thousand Dollar Tan Line by Rob Thomas – It’s a pipe dream but I’ll always want more Veronica Mars/Kristin Bell.

Oh you stop it

The Living by Matt de la Pena – this book scared be because I really believe this could happen.  I think a movie would be just as terrifying, but also awesome.  It has everything – action, humor, a little romance, conspiracy.

This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales – I really think a lot of this book would translate well to the big screen.  The party scenes, the DJing, and the music could make for a cool movie.
