This week’s prompt is Top Ten Books I’d Love To See As Movies/Tv Shows. Personally, I prefer TV shows. I just love watching them and I think many books would be better off as TV shows rather than movies. In the end, some of my picks still ended up as movies because I guess it sometimes just works. Anyway, I had a lot of fun thinking about this week’s topic!
Ten Books I’d Love To See As Movies/Tv Shows
- Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling
I love the movies, don’t get me wrong. But more out of sentimentality than because they are actually good (some of them are ok, some are downright disasters). But imagine the books as a TV series! Every book would be a season and it would be amazing and squeee.
- Seraphina by Rachel Hartman
I love these books and I think they’d make a fantastic fantasy series. No more than two seasons though.
- Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
Same as Seraphina! But perhaps three seasons, a season per book.
- China Mountain Zhang by Maureen F. McHugh
This book is still one of my favourites ever and I think it would be amazing as a movie. I imagine it a bit along the lines of (the dystopian parts of) Cloud Atlas, somehow.
- Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel
Please let someone turn this into a movie!
- The Three-Body Problem by Cixin Liu
I’ve obviously only read the first book, but this would make an A+ sci-fi tv series.
- The Vintner’s Luck by Elizabeth Knox
Yes, yes, I know there’s already a movie. But it was puke-worthy in so many ways (removing the romance between Xas and Sobran, letting everyone speak English with a French accent, etc.). I want a new movie that does justice to the book.
I also want the director of the old movie to step on a Lego.
- The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman
Just imagine this as a movie! Best thing ever yes/yes?
- American Gods by Neil Gaiman
THIS ONE’S COMING AS A TV SERIES AND I’M SO EXCITED YESSSSHHH
- Quidditch Through the Ages by J.K. Rowling
If Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (yayyy) can become a movie, I don’t see why this one can’t. *grabby hands*
Congrats, self. You made a list of nothing but science fiction and fantasy books. *pats self on shoulder*
