I've never participated in this meme before, but I can't resist posting on this topic!
Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and Bookish!
This week's question is: Books I'd Love to See Made Into Movies!!
I know, awesome, right? But this list comes with the assumption that they would be made into good movies that don't butcher the book.
1) Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
And you thought I was finished raving about this book?! I'm soooo not done singing its praises. It would be so cool to see the cutesy, fun story play out on the big screen, and would be especially great to see Paris in all its glory (did I mention I LOVE everything about France?!)
2) Looking for Alaska by John Green
This would just be a massive fan-gasm to see as a movie. The rights are owned by a major production company, so it could happen someday. It's not my favourite John Green book, but it'd be cool to see what Hollywood could do with it.
3) Paper Towns by John Green
THIS would be my favourite John Green book! The whacky hijinks would be hilarious to see, and if they could find the perfect actress to play Margo Roth Spiegelman, I would just be in fan heaven.
4) How to Say Goodbye in Robot by Natalie Standiford
I looooved this book, and I think it would an amazing quirky indie movie. My favourite movie of all time is Ghost World, and I loved How to Say Goodbye in Robot because of their similarities. So if How to Say Goodbye in Robot was a movie, it'd be right up there in my favourites!
5) I Am The Messenger by Markus Zusak
Ahhhh... I can't even express my desire to see this book adapted to film. I actually attempted a screenplay adaptation for fun, but it was way too hard and I just knew I couldn't do it justice. It's just such a genius dark comedy, and I know it would be a movie where I'd leave the theatre feeling wonderfully empowered but incredibly sad at the same time. And for some reason I love that feeling.
6) Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver
It would just be so haunting and gorgeous and perfect. Plus it has the perfect movie premise already, doesn't it?
7) Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta
It would be really cool to see what a talented director and cast could do with this story. I read it a year ago and I still haven't really processed exactly how I feel about it. That's how affecting it was!
8) The Chosen One by Carol Lynch Williams
Three words to describe the movie this would make: Intense. Terrifying. Beautiful.
9) The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan
Except that I would be way too freaked out to watch it all the way through.
10) Hard Love by Ellen Wittlinger
It would be a really, really cute non-romance. I love this book.
So there ya go! :) Hopefully my blogger's block is gone now, too!
