Top Ten: Books I'd Like To See Made Into A Movie


Hey, Guys! Top Ten Tuesdays is a meme we participate in hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This weeks categories is Top Ten Books to be made into Movies. Here's my list:

1. A Great And Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray
I have loved this book for ages. It is one of my favorite series ever. So, of course I'd want to see a movie version. There was actually talk years ago in IMDB that it was going to be one but... obviously that didn't happen. Whatever studio backed out, I say BOO to you. But seriously, the scenery and costumes would be beautiful, the realms would be spectacular and look so real with all the technology we have nowadays, and I really want to see how they would portray Kartik. He is one of my favorite fictional men.

2. Keeping Faith by Jodi Picoult
Ms. Picoult is one of my favorite authors and this is one of my favorite books of hers. This book was fantastic; it called on me to question my faith and my beliefs. I think it would make a spectacularly powerful film.

3. Graceling by Kristin Cashore
Fans of the Hunger Games (me me ME!!!) will simply devour this book. I think this book would make an amazing movie, with all of it's rich scenery, diverse characters (especially Po), and amazing storyline. I'll definitely be first in line to get a ticket.


4. Size 12 Is Not Fat by Meg Cabot
I love love LOVE this series. It's hilarious, charming and still keeps you on your toes. The casting would have to be just right but I think this has the potential to be an incredible movie.

5. Beauty Queens by Libba Bray
There's nothing for me to say here. You guys know how I feel about this book. So obviously I'd want it to be a movie. 

6. Divergent by Veronica Roth
This is another dystopian that I think would blow people away on the big screen. And I'm sure every girl would love Four as much as I do.

7. Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare
If someone doesn't make this into a movie, the world will suffer a great travesty. Here that movie execs? DO IT!

8. Juliet Immortal by Stacey Jay
Look at that tagline. "The greatest love story ever told is a lie". Powerful stuff. I am OBSESSED with this book. I got it for Christmas and reread it maybe three times in the span of two days. This would be such a great movie. Love and the mystical combined is always a hot-selling ticket.


9. The Looking Glass Wars by Frank Beddor
A different take on the Alice and Wonderland story? Sign me up. This series was so well-written and intriguing that you could be fully read up on all Wonderland myths and still find this a fresh and exciting story.


10. Incarceron by Catherine Fisher
This was such an interesting book: an inescapable prison in a future version of our world. I was on the edge of my seat the entire time.










Well, there you have it. Here's my list. What are some books you'd like to see made into movies? Until next time...

  1. I had a hard time following Beauty Queens because there were so many characters. I think I would have enjoyed it much more if it was a movie. Great pick!

    1. It was the same for me. I had to write a little character map and keep referring to it. Like you said, a movie version would be more understandable. Thanks for the comment. - Dexter

  3. I was so upset that there was no A Great And Terrible Beauty movie. I had been looking forward to it. I hope there's one in the future.
