Top Ten Books I'd Like To See Made Into A Movie

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week's topic is the Top Ten Books I'd Like To See Made Into A Movie. Oh, this is going to be fun!

Divergent: I'm not going to lie, if DIVERGENT was ever made into a movie, I'd go and see it over and over and over (and over) again. I would even internet stalk whoever was cast as Four.

The Jessica Darling Series: I have loved this series for years and have waited ages to see it on the big screen. Again, this is another movie where I would internet stalk the actor who played Marcus Flutie. RAWR!

Lola and the Boy Next Door: Y'all, this is my favorite 2011 read. How cute would this movie be? A girl dressed in costume, running around San Francisco, and an inventor, hopelessly in love with her. *SIGH* It's kind of like How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days only way more adorable.

Daughter of Smoke and Bone: This would be the perfect summer action-fantasy-romance movie. Come on, movie producers! You know you want to...

The Fault In Our Stars: Yeah, if they made this book into a movie, I'd need to bring a box of tissues to the theater with me. They better not change the ending, though! Jodi Picoult and Nicholas Sparks may be okay with it, but John Green would punch the script writer face. I'm not sure if that's necessarily true (probably because I made it up), but I hope it is. :-P

Amy & Roger's Epic Detour: How much fun would this movie be? The only catch is, everyone in the audience would probably leave a) happy and b) hungry.

The List: This movie would be like Mean Girls on steroids, and I would love every minute of it.

Forget You: Woooooo, talk about steamy summer movies. They might even have to rate it R. At least, that's how it's rated in my imaginary movie version. *winks*

The Shade Trilogy: If they made this into a movie, Flogging Molly would have to (HAVE TO) agree to write a song for the soundtrack. I would probably then fangirl like a lunatic, fly to the east coast to high-five Jeri Smith-Ready, and do a little moshing in the movie theater.

Jellicoe Road: Gosh, I'm trying to come up with what the movie would be like, and the only word I can think of is beautiful.

That's all, folks! What books would you guys like to see made into a movie?


  1. what a great list and totally want to see the shade series , and lola into a movie.

  2. I still need to read a few of these.. but I am pretty much in agreement with ALL of them. Especially the Shade series, Forget You, Amy & Roger, & Jessica Darling!!! aaahhhhh

  3. I didn't put Divergent on my list only because it's already in talks for film. That would be epic!!! Great picks!!

  4. Love the list! Great picks all around ^_^. Books that I would love to see made into a movie - The Leviathan Trilogy by Scott Westerfeld and because someone mentioned this idea on twitter I would love to see them made into an anime by Studio Ghibli -squee-. The Infernal Devices series by Cassandra Clare, I am loving all of the characters and the story. The Curse Worker series by Holly Black gah. WANTS. Though I am wondering it if would make a better series than movie hmm. Either way I want it on a screen with actors :)

  5. Tots forgot about Daughter of Smoke and Bone. That WOULD be a great one. I'm constantly being reminded today how badly I need to read Amy & Roger. For reals, yo. :-/

  6. yesss these are such good choices! I would be SO CURIOUS to see who would be cast as Four since everyone seems to have different picks for him. Lola and Amy & Roger would be such cute films, would definitely watch for sure!

  7. The only one of these books I've read is Divergent, which I've heard has had its film rights sold.

  8. I would add Enclave. I think that would be intense. Lola would be adorbs! Love your list.

  9. Amy & Roger's would make such a cute and fun summer movie. I would definitely watch it! They'd have to be really good about incorporating the music since it was one of my favorite aspects, though.


I love, love, love comments, and therefore, love you! Thanks for dropping by!
