Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Every week they post a new top ten list and invite everyone to share their answers. This week we are looking at my top ten books I would love to see as movies.
1. Northern Lights by Philip Pullman. Okay I realise that an adaption of Northern Lights has already been made. But that movie was truly terrible and I recently re-read Northern Lights and couldn’t stop thinking about what a brilliant movie it could be.
2. Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. This book is a really fun adventure novel. It could be a really great movie and apparently an adaptation is in the works (being directed by Steven Spielberg). The only problem with this book is it references so many things that copyright could be an issue.
3. The Martian by Andy Weir. There is an adaption of this book currently being made and ohmygod they need to hurry up and finish that movie. It had better be good though because I will hurt someone if it isn’t.
4. Sabriel by Garth Nix. The thing I loved about Sabriel is that it’s a really original fantasy. No dragons or elves or dwarves here. Apparently there are plans for a movie adaption, Garth Nix has written the screenplay, but nothing definite yet.
5. Duma Key by Stephen King. I love this book and it could be such a good movie. Unfortunately no plans from what I can see.
6. Red Rising by Pierce Brown. This could be a really good movie, it’s very similar to Ender’s Game and The Hunger Games. So hopefully with the success of Hunger Games this will be made into a movie. Although Pierce Brown has to finish the series first. That would help (Universal bought the rights in 2014 so we may see a movie adaption).
7. Room by Emma Donoghue. This was a really creepy book, but I think it could be a really good horror/ thriller type movie. Edit: So apparently it is being made into a movie and will be released at the end of 2015.
8. The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon. Apparently there is an adaption of this already in the works, by Andy Serkis’ production company. I think it’s going to be really interesting. But I can’t help but feel that this adaption is coming a little early, what with this being a 7 book series.
9. The Mountain Can Wait by Sarah Leipciger. This is a very visual book taking place in the Canadian Rockies, and I think it could be a really good movie adaption and would show off the rural parts of Canada really well.
10. The Hundred Year Old Man by Jonas Jonasson. This was a really fun adventure novel, its the sort of book that has to be made into a movie.
