Top Five Wednesday- Books I Want to See on a Screen

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme run by Thoughts on Tomes and Ginger Reads Lainey. The Goodreads group is linked here.

It’s been a month lovely people, but I’m back with the T5W post 😀 . Since this weeks topic was a freebie, I decided to discuss books I want to see on T.V. or on the big screen. My apprehension on book to screen adaptations are a bit muddled, but as a concept, these are books i’d love to see on some type of screen.

The Illuminae Files series – Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff


This would be a great movie and seeing how the Sci-Fi genre on screen has evolved, I think it can be done write. I mean, the first movie is basically zombies in space and it’s sequel is worms (though I guess there is a complicated factor in this one as well, but it can be handled well, too). I have yet to read the finale, but I’m not doubting how amazing it could look in theaters 🙂

Sky in the Deep – Adrienne Young

book 3

The History channel can definitely handle this… and it may or may not be because they already have a Viking’s show… But this book was amazing— the action, the characters, the death… yeah, I’d be ready to see that.

Arc of a Scythe series – Neal Shusterman


With all of the other Dystopian books to movie adaptations, I think this series would be a good addition. It parallels our society today with the questions the characters raise during the story as well as being an interesting concept.

The Shadow Game series – Amanda Foody


I’d love for this to be a T.V. series, though I don’t want the CGI to ruin anything T_T I mean, The City of Sin, magic, Slytherin girls and Bisexual boys, murder… I think I’m noticing a pattern…

A Million Junes – Emily Henry


I tried to step away from the Fantasy genre and went with a Contemporary, though this is a magical realism story dealing with grief and has a Rome and Juliet side plot. I don’t know, it reminded me of the Raven Boys show that’s supposed to be coming up (I went on Tumblr and the fan edits for that made me anticipate a show for a series I haven’t even read yet…) and thought hey, this weird, creepy setting would be a great show on MTV or something…

Yeah, the fact that most of these shows have death and murder and badass girls in them doesn’t reflect my personality at all (◎_◎;) …

  1. Illuminae!! Yes, although books to movies scare me so much. For example, the Mortal Instruments failed as a movie and the tv show is… not like the books. LOL. Though, I liked the movie better than the tv show, character wise. I’ve been seeing Scythe around, maybe I should add it to my TBR.

  2. Oh, this is a fantastic prompt!! Ace of Shades and Scythe have been buzzing on my radar recently – it makes me happy to know they’re worthy of cinema in your eyes! 😊

  3. I’m super excited about the Raven Boys show. Your description makes me want to read A Million Junes – I love weird, creepy settings. Plus that cover is just calling my name. I really want a Daughter of Smoke and Bone show – I think that would be so cool.
