Top Ten Books I’d Love to see as Movies of TV Shows

infernal devices

1. The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare: I would love to see a real life Will Herondale! Oh and yeah the story line is fantastic and full of drama and action. I’d love to see that on-screen! Preferably a TV show because it can add more detail that a 2-hour movie can’t.

Throne of Glass

2. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas: YES to Celaena’s story on-screen!! It would be a cool TV show to start off with Assassin’s Blade. I also need to see a real life Celaena and Dorian!

The selection 3. The Selection by Kiera Cass: Okay, okay, if you didn’t know, The Selection is in the works for a TV show! Hopefully it will make it. I think it would really be interesting to see on-screen. It’s a scripted Bachelor haha

percy jackson 4. Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan: Yes, there are two movies out already. I want new movies or a TV show where it will be done correctly! I don’t know how or why the writers/directors totally screwed up the first two movies but we need a good adaptation!

5. The Lux Series by Jennifer L. Armentrout: I haven’t seen too many alien films — or shows– that I’ve really liked. But let’s be honest, I’m not actively trying to find one either. If this came out as a TV show, maybe with CW?, I’d be waiting anxiously every week!

6. Penryn and the End of Days trilogy by Susan Ee: You’re telling me you don’t want to see a shirtless and very muscular Raffe on screen? I also am intrigued at how Hollywood would create those monsters.

7. The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer: I’m always down for Cinderella retellings on film! Plus, it’ll have an Asian main character!!

delirium 8. Delirium Trilogy by Lauren Oliver: They tried and failed. It didn’t even hit the screen. I liked the idea of making it a TV show but I hated the execution. It was a terrible first episode! So I want a better one! I want Alex Sheathes!

just one day9. Just One Day by Gayle Forman: I’d really like to see this one. It’s already a premise for a great Hollywood film. I think that it would be cool to mix together Just One Day and Just One Year, mixing up both their point of views. That, however, might be a long movie.

Graceling

10. Graceling by Kristin Cashore: I LOVED this book. It was reminiscent of Game of Thrones but, you know, the PG, kiddie version haha. I’d love to see Katsa in action. I also wouldn’t mind if they extrapolated and added scenes of Katsa and Po after the end of the book.

What books would you like to see adapted into a movie or TV show? Let me know below! Also, don’t forget to add your link to your Top Ten Tuesday! I’d love to take a look 😀

  1. I think the key is that they all have to be done well–and right. This is a great list. The Lunar Chronicles would be fun to see in movie form.

  2. I am so totally agreeing with you on the Thorn of Glass series and the Penryn and the End of Days series bricking movies/TV shows!
    I can literally picture Penryn and the End of Days series as a movie – I wouldn’t even mind if it went for 3 or more hours.
    And if the Throne of Glass sweets was so become a tv show that would be so damn perfect.
    Great picks! I also agree with you on the Selection series. Xoxo

  3. Throne of Glass & The Lunar Chronicles made it onto my list!! I would also love to see a new TV/Movie adaptation of the Percy Jackson series! I’m probably one of the rare ones that didn’t hate The Lightning Thief movie, however I didn’t watch The Sea of Monsters.

  4. I agree, Percy Jackson should be redone. Or at the very least they should stop trying to pretend to follow the plot, it might be fun if they just came up with random storylines themselves. Until then, it’s kind of a disgrace. That being said, the Nathan Fillion cameo was gold.

  5. Oh my goodness, Graceling is such an awesome idea for a movie! I can totally see that being made into a film in the future. It’s exciting, action-packed, has a great female heroine, and is really different from the dystopian stories that have been dominating the media lately. Awesome list!

    • Yeah, they filmed the first episode I think but Fox didn’t pick it up. It aired on Hulu for a little bit but I’m not sure if it’s still on there. Emma Roberts was casted as Lena and Daren Kagasoff as Alex. A lot of Delirium fans did not like it because they changed so much. They changed a lot of Lena’s character and the first episode pretty much covered the first book. It was ridiculous — what would there rest of the season be about. Plus, it was unbelievable that all that happened in a 45 minute time frame.

  6. I love your picks! With you on pretty much everything. The Selection was tried twice as a tv show for the CW, but they didn’t pick it up both times which is a shame. I would LOVE to see Graceling though, and Throne of Glass is getting so much love today!
