This week’s topic was a page-to-screen freebie, so I chose to do books I wish would be made into a movie. These are, in no particular order, the top ten books I wish would make it to the big screen!
ONE: Blanca y Roja by Anna-Marie McLemore
Have I gushed about this book enough? No? Well, let me do it again. I think this book would make a fantastic movie, but the casting would have to be PERFECT.
TWO: Sadie by Courtney Summers
Especially with all of the hype surrounding Serial, I bet this movie would be a huge hit. And as much as I loved how the book was written and how it wrapped up, I’d be all about an alternate ending so audience could get some closure.
THREE: The Wicker King by K. Ancrum
Have you read this book yet? No? Well, first go read it. THEN let’s make a movie. Although it might break my heart for Jack and August even more.
FOUR: The Cruel Prince by Holly Black
Do I even need to explain this one? I’m already holding auditions for Cardan’s role.
FIVE: The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw
This would be an AWESOME Halloween release, and I bet it would be even bigger than Hocus Pocus.
SIX: The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang
This was one of my favorite releases from last year, and it would be such a great romantic release with awesome rep from the autism spectrum. Valentine’s Day date, anyone?
SEVEN: Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor
If you follow my blog, you know I’m obsessed with this book. I think it’d make a fantastic movie, but the casting would need to be just right.
EIGHT: The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid
SWOON, MY HEART. As much as I’d sob my eyes out at a movie rendition of this love story for the ages, I’m practically begging for it at this point.
NINE: The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren
I bet this would be better than 90% of the Rom-Coms coming out this year, easily.
TEN: Vicious by VE Schwab
Vicious is such a unique storyline, and I haven’t read a book or seen a movie quite like it before. I think this would be such a fun one to see on the big screen, plus I love morally grey characters!
That’s it, guys! What do you think? Would you want to see any of these in movie format? Any cast members in mind? Let me know!
