Yay it’s Tuesday again, so time for another Top Five Tuesday, a meme hosted by BionicBookWorm
All right *cracks knuckles* I love books and I love movies and I love book adaptations best so this is the perfect topic for me. I’ve picked some that I’d really, definitely would 100% love if they were adapted for the screen (provided that they do it well, of course) but that I don’t think are plans for just yet! So here’s my list!
- Uprooted by Naomi Novik
There’s just so much filmic opportunity with this book. The CGI, the action sequences, the lavish dresses! The tower, the woods, the city, the magic! It could be so absolutely beautiful if they were it to do it well, and not mess it up with pacing it too fast or using too much CGI (like what often happens when they adapt fantasy to a action movie). It holds so much potential!
- Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
This would be such a cool movie, just think about it. So much action and cool places and details. I think this story in general really lends itself well for screen adaptation. But let’s not make it PG rated, I want to see an eye get ripped out, okay, that needs to be on screen.
- The Paris Winter by Imogen Robertson
This not a very well-known book, at least I don’t really see people talk about it, but it’s really good and I think it would be great as a movie. Or maybe a mini series. Especially with the Paris background and the paintings. It’s a pretty visual book, and I think it would work well on screen.
- Leah on the Offbeat by Becky Albertalli
I WANT A LEAH MOVIE, OKAY, AND I WANT HER TO BE FAT AND GLORIOUS LIKE SHE IS IN THE BOOK. GIVE ME THIS. AND I WANT IT ROMANTIC AND COOL. JUST LET ME HAVE THIS.
- The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss
Honestly, I think this should be a series (and I think it’s going to be???!!) but I’m running out of ideas. This story would just work really well on screen.
What are some books you really want to be made into a movie? Let me know in the comments!
