Top Ten Tuesday: “Top Ten Books I’d Like To See Made Into a Movie”
Top Ten Tuesday is a fun way to spice up Tuesdays (because everyone hates Mondays, Wednesdays are the halfway point, Thursdays are “little Fridays”, and everyone knows about Fridays… :)) and it’s hosted by The Broke and Bookish.
Divergent by Veronica Roth
There’s not really a need for me to give you reason, but…if you must have some. Running to get into trains. Four and Tris. Bird tattoos. Fearless. 🙂
Eragon by Christopher Paolini
I know they already did a movie for it, but I was NOT good. Re-make it, throw more money at it, get decent actors, and expand the idea of the journey. I would love to be able to watch a movie about it since the books are SO long!
Little House On the Prairie by Laura Ingalls Wilder
I know this was a tv show, but I would seriously love to have a movie or two of Laura Ingalls and her life. Call me old fashioned. But I do.
Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers
This book shows the amount of hurt and pain a person can go through and the feelings of being so unworthy. I think this has potential for a great movie.
Across The Universe by Beth Revis
I want to actually see the ship. I want to see the characters. I want it to be tangible like the magic of Harry Potter. Plus some people are not keen on the whole back and forth chapters from different character’s POV.
11/22/63 by Stephen King
I’ve gotten the middle of the book. The idea behind it is awesome. There is just SO much detail! I would think this would be a movie to make next year on the 50 year anniversary of President Kennedy’s death.
The True Story of Hansel and Gretel by Louise Murphy
If you haven’t read this book. Please do it as quickly as possible. It takes the idea of Hansel and Gretel and places them as children being smuggled out of reach of the Nazis and that’s why they end up in the woods.
Graceling by Kristin Cashore
MMmmmm…magic kingdoms. Katsa and Po, on a screen! I would definitely splurge on the good popcorn to see this movie!!
Unwind by Neal Shusterman
I could just hear all the controversies over this movie. Maybe I like to antagonize…the idea of parents being able to “unwind” (aka: dissect) their unruly teenagers if they don’t want them around anymore I think would make for a crazy movie.
Inescapable by Amy A. Bartol
Angels, romance, a love triangle, and an adventure. I’ve been raving on this series for a while now, but I mean what I say and I say what I mean.
