Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the Broke and the Bookish. Book bloggers create their own lists based on the chosen topics and post links to our lists. It’s a way of all sharing our thoughts and our love of books. And who doesn’t love lists??
So this week’s challenge was to list the books that we would love to see as a movie or TV series, assuming that it was done well!
- Book Thief by Markus Zusak – This is actually going to be a movie coming to theaters on November 15! I’m a little nervous, hoping that they will do the book justice, but I can’t wait to see it!
- Inspector Gamache Series by Louise Penny – Another favorite that is about to hit the screen and is making me keep my fingers crossed!
- Commissario Guido Brunetti Series by Donna Leon – I would love to see this character come to life, and the setting of Venice would be wonderful!
- Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman – Done right, this would make a great movie – touching and horrifying!
- Mr. Penumbra’s 24 Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan – I would love to see these quirky characters come to life, and a quest full of intrigue, history, and technology would make a great movie!
- The Giver by Lois Lowry – There has been talk about this becoming a movie for years now, and it looks like it’s finally going to happen…
- Artemis Fowl series by Eoin Colfer – There have been rumors around this series becoming movies for a long time, but hopefully they will finally bring this evil boy genius and the world of fairies to the big screen!
- Thieves of Book Row by Travis McDade – This non-fiction historical book could be made into a really interesting historical drama.
- The Spellman Series by Lisa Lutz – This wacky set of characters would make for a great comedy/drama with some romantic tension thrown in!
- Spenser Series by Robert B. Parker – OK, I know this was a TV series in the 70s but it seriously needs to be redone! Less corny and without cutting out all the swearing and politically incorrect conversations!
