Top Ten Books I'd Love to See as TV Shows/Movies

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish!
TV/Movie adaptations! This isn't something I always put much thought to while reading, but if I were to see news that these were becoming a thing, I'd happy dance around my living room.
My Top Ten Books I'd Love to See as TV Shows/Movies:
Strange Angels by Lili St. Crow
Strange Angels (Strange Angels, #1) 
This whole series would make some kickass movies or a supremely kickass TV show. It was one of the first ones to come to mind when I saw the topic for this week--so long as they cast a super gorgeous Christophe, and he better have an irresistible accent. I will stand for no less.
Fire & Flood by Victoria Scott
Fire & Flood
I'm trying to keep this one off lists until more people have read it, but this was literally the first book that came to mind for this. It would be such an epic movie, for real. Those Pandoras! Tella being all bubbly! And oh sweet baby goodness Guy Chambers... *dies*
Time Between Us by Tamara Ireland Stone
Time Between Us (Time Between Us, #1)
It would be so cool! Bennett on the big screen? Yes, please. And then there's that time travel thing.
Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Obsidian (Lux, #1)
I know this one is already sort of happening, but it has to be on the list anyway. This series is so near and dear to my heart. This would be awesome, especially if it made it all the way to Origin? Awwww, man.
Don't Die, My Love by Lurlene McDaniel
 Don't Die, My Love
I love Lurlene McDaniel's books, and I can totally see them turning into Nicholas Sparks-ish movies. I mean, this book makes me cry EVERY. TIME.
The Collector by Victoria Scott
The Collector (Dante Walker, #1)
I can see this as a TV series. Dante being his badass self, collecting souls, and then (ideally) liberating 'em. ;)
How to Ruin a Summer Vacation by Simone Elkeles
How to Ruin a Summer Vacation (How to Ruin, #1)
I have two reasons for this:
1) Amy's (and Avi's) shenanigans would be so fun to WATCH.
2) There are few things I wouldn't do for Avi to be real, even if it's only for me to ogle on the big screen.
Intertwined by Gena Showalter
Intertwined (Intertwined, #1)
This is one of those books that has a really cool premise that could have been done better, but I can't help but love it nonetheless. And I have my fascination with werewolves. And a love for Riley. *shrugs*
Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor
Daughter of Smoke & Bone (Daughter of Smoke & Bone #1)
Wouldn't this be so freaking awesome?! You CANNOT tell me that it wouldn't.
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer (Mara Dyer, #1)
A movie that will mess with your mind! That's always fun, eh?
Wow...I'm already at ten. I thought this would be a lot harder to do than it was. Umm... runner up is Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi. I was torn between Mara and UtNS on that last one.
What do you think of my picks? What would you have put on your list? If you participate in TTT, be sure to link me up so I can see!


  1. You know, they really do need to make Daughter of Smoke & Bone into a movie. It was such a great book.

  2. Omg omg omg how did I forget Strange Angels? One of the first YA series I read and fell in love with <3 Those books really would make amazing movies or a TV show.
    Yay for The Collector! Can't believe I missed that one too, as well as a few others :/ oh well. And dude, so jealous you've read Fire & Flood, I'm just about dying for that one.
    Awesome list, Jessica xx
    My list

  3. I haven't read any of these! lol A bunch of them are on my TBR list, so that's something, right?

    My TTT!

  4. Daughter of Smoke and Bone.... YESSS!!! All the characters would have to be perfect and the setting would have to be super well done too but it would be an awesome movie!
