Top Ten Tuesday: Page – to – Screen

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. Check out her blog for more info!

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!




I'm a late 20-something physical therapist living in Michigan with my hubby who loves reading and reviewing books, running, wine, and dogs.

  1. I really want to read The Wicker King and Strange the Dreamer. I loved The Cruel Prince and VIcious and I would love a series/movie for both!

  2. Gush away! Strange the Dreamer and The Kiss Quotient would be good movies; I haven’t seen the other ones yet. Maybe if they made Vicious into a movie I’d finally get my butt in gear and read a VE Scwab book!
