Top Ten Tuesday: Books I'd Love To See As Movies/ TV Shows


Tuesday, again - how time flies!  The theme this week for Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, is a great one: Books I'd Love To See As Movies/ TV Shows.  I know I've probably mentioned some of these on this list before now, but I would love to see adaptations of them!  Here we go, in alphabetical order:

All Our Yesterdays by Cristin Terrill


The Cal Leandros series by Rob Thurman


A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab


The Iron Druid Chronicles by Kevin Hearne


The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer


Magic Ex Libris series by Jim C. Hines


The Monstrumologist series by Rick Yancey


Shutter by Courtney Alameda


A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray


Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas



This was a very difficult list to keep to ten!  So, what do you think of it?  Would you like to see any of these on the big or small screen?  Until next Tuesday!

  3. I haven't even read The Monstormoligist or A Darker Shade of Magic and I agree with you! Just the premises of these novels make me want an adaption! I would love to see Throne of Glass as a TV show!

  10. I've only read Cinder, and while I enjoyed it, I think I would enjoy a movie more haha! Which doesn't usually turn out to be the case.

  15. The Lunar Chronicles would be great too. Good list.
    I just ordered Shutter. Super curious about it.

  16. We have a book in common! *s*

    I'd adore an Iron Druids TV show and think that A Thousand Pieces of You could play out nicely on the big screen. Good choices!

    My TTT is here.

  17. Great list! I've seen The Lunar Chronicles around a lot, but I haven't seen Throne of Glass before. That would be an awesome series/movie. If they had the right cast anyways.

  21. I need to get to Shutter. It's been on my TBR since last year. Great list!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I agree with all of these (that I've read, at least)! If only what we dreamed for the books we read ended up actually happening on screen.

  23. I have kind of a complicated relationship with the Iron Druid Chronicles but it would make such a great TV series!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I think A Thousand Pieces of You would make a great movie! As well as Cinder and Throne of Glass - though I think the latter would make an amazing tv series rather than movie.

    1. That seems to be the general consensus...

  25. Throne of Glass would be EPIC. Like the YA version of the Game of Thrones series I reckon. xD And I want to read Shutter, so so bad. But I'll definitely take it as a movie if it's as creepy as it looks. Can Tim Burton direct?!! XD

  27. I've love to see Cinder too. The rest of these books look great, but I haven't read them. There are a couple on here that are on my TBR pile. I should probably get to them!

  32. Yes to 'All Our Yesterdays'! The time travel, parallel stories and that ending, they're made for a movie. Someone has got to get on this as soon as possible.
