The topic title is pretty self explanatory, what books (no matter how big, small, or implausible) do you wish they would make a movie out of?
I’ve lucked out in that several things I’ve read in the past several years have made their way (for better or worse) to the silver screen. Despite this, I still have an astronomical list, as I have read a ton of stuff that “would be a way better movie than Twilight, ugh”
Sabriel by Garth Nix
I first read this book in middle school and have read it numerous times since. Probably still one of my favorite books of all time, and I think it would translate decently well to the movie format. And it’s awesome.
Fever series by Karen Marie Moning
So I am female and like urban paranormal with a tiny dash of “don’t make me stab you” romance. Hot dudes, irish pubs, and stabbing monsters in faces, whats not to love?
The Newsflesh Series by Mira Grant
Approximately 20 years after the zombie apocalpyse, a group of blogger accompany a presidential candidate on the campaign trail, facing outbreaks, govt conspiracy, and crazed science experiments. Probably entirely too difficult to translate to screen, and the whole almost incest thing might turn people off. Then again the Mortal Instruments City of Bones book is becoming a movie and that has creep incest moments too.
Running with the Demon by Terry Brooks
A young girl plagued by the dark, a broken knight trying to save her, and a demon bent on destroying them all. Sounds like an episode of Supernatural, which I’m okay with.
The Nightside Series OR The Secret Histories Series by Simon R.Green
I got @SOCRATEZ hooked on these as well, and to be fair they would each be much better as BBC mini-series. But seriously, a film noir private eye in a secret London underground, or a 'make James Bond drool" knight-ish guy trying to save the world from very very bad inter-dimensional 'why dear god why" monsters? Yes please.
Any Sigma Force novel by James Rollins
Because they make the Da Vinci Code look like See Spot Run.
Dresden Files by Jim Butcher
The series was okay if you never picked up a book, but the books are great, so they deserve a fair shot.
I could keep going. I could. But I wont. Because I clearly have a book problem.
