Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish. Every week they come up with a topic and invite whoever wants to add their own list to their own blog.
Ah, movies… entertainment to the masses. It’s really becoming a more common trend to turn books into movies and I say “Hey, if it’s getting more people to read, all the better!” And since just about every somewhat popular book is getting turned into a movie, I thought I’d throw my own recommendations into the ring. Who knows? Maybe a big time Hollywood producer is checking out my blog… Hello big time Hollywood producer!
Here are my Top Ten Books that I’d like to see made into movies:
Lucy Sullivan is Getting Married – This was actually a TV show in England many years ago, but I want to see it as a movie! (P.S. It starred Gerard Butler – yummy!)
Graceling – But only if it could star Ryan Phillipe (a la the 90s) as Prince Po.
The Sky is Everywhere – But only if arch-nemesis Selena Gomez DOESN’T star in it.
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children – What’s this I read? Tim Burton to direct this adaptation? <checks pulse to see if heart is racing> I will be first in line if this is true.
Heist Society – I’m pretty sure I’d NEVER actually go see this in theaters, but I think this would be a great Sunday afternoon movie.
Texas Gothic – I know I talk about this book like ALL THE TIME, but it’s seriously so good and I’d love to see it made into a movie. Especially if it could star Emma Stone.
The Scorpio Races – I don’t know what it is about this book that I want to see brought to life, but it could be good… right?
American Girls Kirsten Books – You know, all the other girls got their own movie… what about Kirsten?!
Anna and the French Kiss – Again, this is one of those movies I probably wouldn’t go see in the theaters, but I’d happily Red Box or Netflix this and curl up on my sofa with a big bowl of popcorn and champagne to watch it!
Divergent – Meh… thought I’d add this like everyone else most likely is. Although it would be kind of awesomepants…
