Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke & The Bookish.
Each week they release a Top Ten List and invite everyone to join in and make their own Top Ten List.
I’m a massive fan of books being adapted into films or TV series, but I always try to read the books before watching so I can imagine everything for myself first. So here’s my Top Ten list:
1. Noughts and Crosses – Malorie Blackman
I read this book years ago, and have been waiting for it to become a movie ever since, but no body had taken it on. It’s got such an amazing forbidden love story set in a world ruled by race, with Black on top and White as second class citizens.
2. Eragon – Christopher Paolini
I know this one has already been made into a film, but it was a massive disappointment, so I’m ignoring it and put this on my list. The original film made the story feel so basic and childlike, whereas the book and the world within it are, in my opinion, at the same standards as The Lord of the Rings. I would love for someone to take on this series and make it amazing!
3. What I Didn’t Say – Keary Taylor
I only recently read this book, but immediately fell in love with it. It’s a story with a message, and I feel that it would make an extremely powerful film.
4. Gone – Michael Grant
A town surrounded by a bubble in which everyone over the age of 15 disappears and the kids are left to fend for themselves. Such a good book, would be really interesting to see it done as a movie.
5. Lorien Legacies – Pittacus Lore
The film for the first book has already been made, I’m wanting the second one now!
6. Starcrossed – Josephine Angelini
I love storylines that involve decedents from Gods and this book doesn’t disappoint. Its got action, a love story and a family that you can’t help but fall in love with.
7. Halo – Alexandra Adornetto
An Angel-Human love story. Beth and Xavier are the cutest couple and their forbidden love really captures you and keeps you reading. This book would make a really good supernatural-chick flick film.
8. Abducted – T.R.Ragan
This book was a lucky find that I ended up loving and I feel would make a really good TV series. Elizabeth is abducted as a teen, escapes and grows up teaching girls how to defend themselves. But then the abductor starts kidnapping again and leaving messages taunting Elizabeth. So with the help of her ex boyfriend turned detective they must find him, and the missing girls before it’s too late. Would make a really good detective TV series.
9. Benedict’s Series – Joss Stirling
I thought long and hard about this one and whether I would prefer the book series as a movie or as a TV series, ultimately deciding on a TV series. There are 7 brothers, and I would be scared that in a movie you wouldn’t get time with them all, which you would definitely need, because they are all amazing!
10. Missing You – Meg Cabot
Ok, so I know that this was made into a TV series already, but it sucked. I want it made again, but this time better! Jess and her ability to find missing kids deserves so much better!
