Top Ten Tuesday: Books I’d love to see as a tv show or movie

As always, Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Today’s theme is top ten books you’d like to see as a tv show or movie.

Divergent (Divergent, #1)

1. Divergent. Yes I know this is going to be a movie, but it would be a great tv show. Action, romance, intrigue. And I would love to recast some of the characters.

2. The Night Circus. As either a movie or tv show. If the special effects are awesome and not cheesy. This would be amazing to see on screen.

Sworn to Silence (Kate Burkholder, #1)

3. The Kate Burkholder series. There was a Lifetime movie based off the first book, but it was pretty horrible. A little recasting and new writers and it would be a great serial/procedural.

4. The Passing Bells. Pretty much everything I read about this series compares it to Downton Abbey. I’ve never seen Downton Abbey, but this would probably have the same type of mass appeal. And Fenton Wood-Lacey and Martin Rilke in person? Sigh.

Obsidian (Lux, #1)

5. The Lux series. Teenage aliens. Perfect for the CW.

6. The Mortal Instruments. Enough humor, romance, action, and surprises to make this a long running series. And I would love the opportunity to recast from the movie.

Shatter Me (Shatter Me, #1)

7. Shatter Me. Juliet, Adam, Warner. This could be paired with the Lux series on the CW and be the best night of tv.

8. A Voice in the Wind. Action, faith, romance. This book has a little bit for everyone.

Gone Girl

9. Gone Girl. Yes, this is going to be a movie, but it has enough potential to be a series. And there’s ton of opportunity to add to Amy and Nick’s backstory.

10. Anna and the French Kiss. This would be an adorable little show on ABC Family.
