Top Ten Tuesday: Books That Deserve Movies

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish.

Because we are rebels (read: because we didn't read enough books this year to justify yet another best of 2015), we decided to go back and look at the list of TTT topics that we missed out on and pick one that we liked. We landed on 10 books or series that we wish could be made into movies or TV shows. 

 Like with most authors that make these weekly lists, I am a huge Tera Lynn Childs fan girl. I will follow her places that I wouldn't normally go, such as multi POV or superhero stories. And Powerless was just so good! It has a lot of potential to be made into a movie or TV series, and I think visually it could be a lot of fun. The idea of a superhero's daughter without powers is not new, but I think Childs and Deebs take on it is fresh and fun. And sexy!

 A paladin southern belle who goes around kicking ass and taking names? That is practically screaming for a movie!

I want this so much! These Broken Stars was such an amazing book, and while visually I think it might be difficult to achieve, it would be such an amazing movie. I don't think it would translate well into a show, as for the vast majority of the book, it is only the two main characters, but I think it could work well for a movie.

Like the cover says, this series is basically Criminal Minds for teens. I think the CW could pick this up as a show and that it would be amazing!

With the seeming popularity of robot/AI TV shows and movies that we are experiencing right now, this series is ripe for the picking! I think it would be really interesting to see this story translated to the big (or small!) screen.


  1. "Criminal Minds for teens"

    Yes please! I haven't read the book (you can bet it's on my 2016 list now lol), but I'd love a show like this.

    1. I am so glad to hear you are planning on reading it! It really is a good book. I read it before Mariela got me started on Criminal Minds, and whenever I started the pilot, there were quite a few things that really reminded me of The Naturals! I hope you enjoy it :) And that someday we are blessed with a Criminal Minds-esque YA show, even if it isn't The Naturals!

  2. Great list! I really liked Rebel Belle too and I really want to read Darkfever soon!

  3. I have Rebel Belle on my TBR list. I really need to start that one soon. Great list, ladies and thank you for stopping by. :)

  4. The Naturals would make an amazing movie!
    Great list. I will have to add some of these to my TBR list.:)

  5. Are there illustrations in Child Thief? I heard that Brom is an awesome artist. I didn't know he wrote novels too.

  6. Great choices, I'll need to add some of these to my wishlist! :) xx

  7. What fun choices and a neat topic! I haven't read The Naturals yet but really want too and it seems like a perfect CW fit. As for 'Broken Stars,' I'd totally watch that too. It'd fit well on CW also though considering their last space romance didn't take, perhaps it's too soon to try another one.

    Thanks so much for visiting Dreaming Under the Same Moon - and right back atcha. I love your Christmas layout ladies. :)

  8. A Shatter Me movie would be AMAZING!

    Thanks for stopping by my TTT!
