Top Ten Tuesday 04


Top Ten Tuesday is weekly meme hosted The Broke and the Bookish. There is a new topic for each week and the participating bloggers are invited to post their Top Ten lists on it. 

I missed last week's TTT but I am back today participating in a favourite topic of mine - Books into Movies.

Where She Went by Gayle Forman - I dream of hearing the songs from this book played live but I am sure it will also make a great movies. The first book in the series, If I Stay, is already being filmed with Chloe Moretz as Mia and Jamie Blackley as Adam. 

On the Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta - this is the firt book that comes to my mind when talking about movie adaptations. Ms Marchetta is already working on the script and the casting is already underway. it will be an Australian movie 

Neanderthal Seeks Human by Penny Reid - this book is just hilarious. i am not really sure but I think it will make great romantic comedy 

The Davina Code by Janet Elizabeth Henderson - same as NSH, but with a more British flavour to it

The Piper’s Son by Melina Marchetta - another contemporary Marchetta's novel. I loved the story and I think it would make a great serious/dramatic movie. 

The next five suggestions on my list are series of books:

The Artists Trilogy by Karina Halle - I just read the first two books and the prequel and really enjoyed them. they would make a dark thriller with a tuch of drama and romance. Ms Halle's dream cast for a movie adaptation  :)

Lumatere Chronicles by Melina Marchetta - the final Marchetta's novel (series) on my list. It is a fantasy series with great characters and complex world of magic and war. It could look amazing on the big screen

The Fever series by Karen Marie Moning - My all-time favourite Urban Fantasy series. The world created by Karen Marie Moning is so complex and captivating that it will be quite a challenge to transfer it to the big screen. Ms Moning recently shared on FB that the movie rights are back in her possession, so I don't know what this means about a possible movie adaptation.

Legend series by Marie Lu - An amazing dystopian young adult series. I really enjoyed the first two books and I am looking forward the final one too be released this fall. I can totally see Day and June in a great action packed movie.

Breathing series by Rebecca Donovan - This Young to New Adult series that touches upon serious issues as domestic violence could make a great angst-filled drama. 

What are the books you want to see made into movies? 
Leave me a comment and I will check back your Top Ten list :)

  1. I only read Legend from this list but book one was a little disappointing for me.

    My TTT

  2. Too bad you didn't like Legend very much. You should still check Prodigy, I liked it better than book 1 :) Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I have Lumatere Chronicles and the Fever books on my list too! I almost put Legend on there, but didn't have room for it. I didn't even think about Neanderthal Seeks Human, but it would make a romantic comedy I'd love to see. Thanks for sharing!
