Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created over at The Broke and the Bookish which I adore and therefore chose to adopt into my weekly blog posts!
This is obviously going to be a list of my favorite books because why wouldn’t I want to see them on the big screen? However, this list is tentatively put together as I don’t want any big names ruining one of my favorite books (I’m lookin’ at you, Beowulf!) I think if done properly these books would make fantastic movies that I would obsess over again and again.
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern – This story was so vibrant and sweet in so many ways, I really loved it. I hate to be one of “those” but I do think it would be enjoyable as a “Harry Potter for adults” story.
The Child Thief by Brom – An extremely dark retelling of Peter Pan, I LOVED it! They might have to scale some things down to make it not so scary and less of a horror story but I think it would be great!
Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers – How could this one not be popular? It’s assassin nuns! I would be so wary to see this one because I really don’t want anything to ruin the images in my imagination but I would be curious to see the slow burn romance come to life!
Snow White and Rose Red by Patricia C. Wrede – My favorite fairy tale! I would be interested to see how this would look on the big screen especially with all of the fey elements.
The Historian by Elizabeth Kostava – When I first read this book a few years ago there were rumors that film rights had been negotiated. Sadly, after some research I see that no one has gone forward with production. This book provided a new twist on the Dracula tale in a different way than the typical vampire novels or Dracula in Love and it made me remember all the reasons I loved Dracula growing up.
The Black Swan by Mercedes Lackey – Ahh one of my favorites from my tender teen years, I can’t say why this book stuck with me so much after all these years but I love it. It’s a retelling of a popular fairy tale but it is also somewhat dark in a way and I think it would be very popular if done well.
Graveminder by Melissa Marr – I LOVED the world building in this one I think it could be really interesting to show the duality between the real world and the sort of “in between” that Bek travels to.
Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion – Cheating a bit at this one I know since it is already post production but I am so excited for it. I loved this book immensely more than I thought I would and was surprised to find myself having a crush on a zombie!
That’s it from me this week, what is on your Top Ten Tuesday?
