 Top Ten Books I Would Love to See As a Movie/Tv Show

Well, I have been lucky, both Vampire Academy and Divergent are coming out next year! I've heard Hush, Hush might be seriously becoming a film as well, and there are a handful of others soon: The Book Thief and The Fault in Our Stars are two that I'm eager to see as well. As you will be able to tell by this post I am quite the fan of television. And I am. When I'm not re-watching episodes of Buffy, Roswell or any of the other shows from my teen years I'm watching Pretty Little Liars (Me+Wren=Love), Once Upon a Time (Me+Hook+PrincePhillip=I'minheavenomg), Revenge, Parenthood, Scandal and pretty much any show that looks good.

1. The Summer Series by Jenny Han: This would be the perfect teen summer flick. This needs to happen. It could even make a good television series! It'd be better than Dawson's Creek! 

2. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins: I love this book. This would be like Passport to Paris, but way better. (I just watched Passport to Paris not too long ago with my daughter and it was a ride down memory lane!)

3. The Shade Series by Jeri Smith-Ready: My favourite series pretty much ever and needs no further comment.

4. My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick: I really love this book and I definitely feel it could translate to the big screen well. 

5. School Spirits by Rachel Hawkins: A stand-alone that was meant to be a series (but isn't happening *insert my saaaalty crocodile tears* at least not anytime soon) could be the start of a good show for ABC Family. Hint, ABC Family. Make it happen.

6. The Mythos Academy Series by Jennifer Estep: This would make a really good paranormal television show! I really love this series!

7. The Covenant Series by Jennifer L Armentrout: This could make a great television series as well. I just really need a mythological show to watch. Her Lux series could also be a hot show. I would watch it with loving obsession.

8. The Wolves of Mercy Falls Series by Maggie Stiefvater: Anything by Maggie Steifvater in a film version would be amazing!

9. The Statistical Probability of Love At First Sight by Jennifer E Smith: I really loved this book and I think this could definitely make a beautiful transition to the big screen! 

10. The Mediator Series by Meg Cabot: I seriously love this series. So hard! I really wished I owned the whole set of them. Actually, I do, but they're at my mother in-laws in another country. Very sad! I think this series could make a really good television show as well! 


  1. The Covenant series and the Lux series would be awesome on TV!

  2. Great list, none of them are on mine but I thinks they would be great on tv or as a movie!

  3. Anna would be awesome as a movie. Although I don't think they would be able to get Etienne right and that is the only way I would want one. However, it is on my list too because this is where Hollywood can't mess it up. HA

  4. What a great topic! And I love your list too. Especially Shade and Statistical Probability.
    Thanks for sharing!

  5. Great list! I didn't love the Summer books as much as everyone else always seems to, but I do think they'd make a great TV series, totally a better Dawson's Creek!

  6. I forgot about the Mythos academy series, but you're right, it's perfect for tv! I reminds me a lot of Harry Potter, and I think it would translate really well on screen.

  7. I did not know that School Spirits is not having a sequel! That stinks. However, you are completely right - it would make a great ABC Family show! The only problem is that it would be a difficult plot line to follow in TV shows. Maybe it would be better as a movie.
