Top Ten Tuesday: Books We’d Love to See as Movies or TV Shows


top ten tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. The feature was created because The Broke and Bookish are particularly fond of lists (as are we!). Each week a new Top Ten list topic is given and bloggers can participate.

Tyrell, A Long Way Gone, All the Bright Places, Absolutely True Diary, Aristotle and Dante

 Today’s Topic: Top Ten Books We’d Love to See as Movies or TV Shows


1. Tyrell by Coe Booth


My students would faint if this book became a movie.

2. A Long Way Gone by Ishmael Beah

a long way gone

I loved teaching this book and found it to be very inspirational. I think it would be well-received by audiences.

3. All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven

all the bright places

I will be surprised if Hollywood doesn’t pick up this book. It would be a really big hit.

4. The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie

If this became a movie, I would be a very, very happy girl.

5. Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz


I am not sure how this would translate to film, but with a good, creative director, I think it could be marvelous.


1. The Living by Matt de la Pena


Whoa! Would this movie be intense! It would definitely be a summer blockbuster!

2. Alex Rider by Anthony Horowitz

The first book, Stormbreaker, has already been made into a movie, but I think the series would make a fascinating TV show following a young spy as he tries to save the world (reluctantly) from Scorpia.

3. The Dungeoneers by John David Anderson

Fans of Harry Potter are going to love this book, and it would make an epic movie just like Rowling’s series.

4. Endangered by Eliot Schrefer


Endangered would make such a wonderful movie! Being able to journey with Sophie as she tries to save herself and Otto would be so suspenseful!

5. Princess in Black by Shannon Hale


I love the Princess in Hale’s books, and I think she would make such a wonderful protagonist in a princess adventure story.

Which books would you love to see brought to the big/small screen?

  1. I wasn’t a huge fan of All the Bright Places, but I would definitely give the film a chance if one were to be made.
    I’ve been meaning to read Aristotle&Dante for ages. Maybe this summer I finally find a time to read it.

    Thanks for stopping by at my blog earlier 🙂

  2. Cool choices. I haven’t heard of most of them but they sound really interesting– so thanks for sharing them (and making my TBR list longer haha). I can’t wait to read All the Bright Places, I’ve heard so many great things about it.
