10 Books I’d Like To See Made Into A Movie

So, I’ve decided to do Top 10 Tuesday, which is hosted by the Broke And The Bookish.  I’ve seen it on a few blogs, and it always seems like fun!  Every Tuesday, book bloggers from all over the place make their own lists based on whatever the topic of the week.

This was a hard list for me to do, because a lot of the books I would have picked have already been made into a movie.  But I somehow managed to come up with 10, so here they are!

10 Books I’d Like To See Made Into A Movie

1- Divergent by Veronica Roth.  I would love to see Divergent on-screen.  I think the aptitude test and the simulations would be freaking amazing to see.

2- The Iron King by Julie Kagawa.  I love the Iron Fey series, and the nevernever!  I’d love to see someone else’s vision of the nevernever.  And Ash and Meghan?  One of my favorite romances ever.

3- The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern.  This was such a magical book, and I’d love to see how the magical, dreamlike feel of the book translates to the big screen.  This is one circus I would love to see!

4- Wildwood Dancing by Juliet Marillier would make a great movie!  I’d love to see this book made into a movie just for the setting and costumes alone.  I loved how I could picture everything in my mind, and to see it on a movie screen would be breathtaking.

5- Avielle Of Rhia by Dia Calhoun.  I wasn’t the biggest fan of the book, but like Wildwood Dancing, the setting and costumes would make it worth it.  I think the movie adaptation would be really interesting, especially with the Bretheren Of The Black Cloaks hanging around.  Oh, and Avielle hiding after her home is attacked would make for an interesting movie.  Come to think of it, it does have the possibility to be a better movie.

6- Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts.  After my re-read of it last year, I realized it would be far better as a movie.  It is a pretty eventful book, and there’s something in it that would appeal to a lot of people.  It would be particularly interesting to see how it’s edited down to a 2 hour movies, but for some reason, I can’t see the author handing over the rights to turn it into a movie.

7- Uglies by Scott Westerfeld.  This would make an amazing movie!  Westerfeld sure knows how to world-build, and the book had a lot of adventure that would keep me riveted.

8- Life As We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer.  It’s about the end of the world, what’s not to like?  Seeing the asteroid hit the moon, and the crazy chaos that ensues…it might not be summer blockbuster material, but it would still be a cool movie.

9- Paranormalcy by Kiersten White.  This would make an awesome movie!  Hello, pink taser!  The IPCA, hunting down paranormal creatures, a shapeshifter- I could go on about the things I liked and how cool it would be to see what the IPCA building looks like.

10- The Morganville Vampires by Rachel Caine.  So what if I’ve read the 1st book in the series?  Just based off of the 1st book, and the summaries I’ve read of the other books, I think this would make a cool t.v. show.
