May 1: Top Ten Books You’d Like To See Made Into A Movie
Before I make my list? Let me say I hate this weeks question. HATE IT. I am a person who doesn’t like to see my books become films. Sure, I love the films – I fully admit to going to midnight releases. But? I really just want to keep them in my mind. So this is one I struggle with a lot, and some of my answers are NOT my favorite books, because some things just need to remain sacred!
1. The Selection (The Selection, #1) by Kiera Cass. Yes, I know this is already a TV show!! (Which I’m super excited for!) But I think I’d rather have it as a movie; simply because I’m not really certain how far they can drag out the show. (But? Aimee Teegarden as America? Yes please!!)
2. The Outlander Series by Diana Gabaldon. I know at one point they were saying Katherine Heigl and Gerard Butler were already signed (?!) and I hated Katherine as Claire. HATED. But it’s been a long time since any noise has been made. (Anyone?)
3. The Dark Tower series by Stephen King. I know they’ve tried a few times, and it’s just too costly. (Less character for the most part, but it definitely rivals Lord of the Rings in complexity, location changes and length!)
5. Queen of Babble (Queen of Babble, #1) by Meg Cabot. Obviously, if The Princess Diaries is any indication? Meg’s books translate well into movies – and this one? I devoured the series, and I would love to see it on the screen. (Not sure who I’d cast though!)
7. Clockwork Angel (The Infernal Devices series) by Cassandra Clare. I’ll be honest – I tried to read the book. 3 times. It’s a big fat DNF for me. But?? I see the appeal, and I would definitely try the movie! (For me, I think this is one of the cases where I WOULD like the movie, but not the book.)
10.The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. While I think it would be VERY difficult to do this book justice? I think if it were done right, it could be absolutely amazing. But? It’d be tough, very tough – to do well.
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.Anyone can play along!(Just remember, NO SPOILERS!!)
“Fine,” I whispered. “I’ll do it. But you know now that I don’t want to be some princess. All I want is to be your wife.”
He stroked my hair.
“You will be.”
**Swoon** Seriously – this book is perfect mind candy! Check back later this week for my review!
