There are so many times when I read a book I cannot help but think "This would be amazing on the big (or little) screen." So I decided I would share the handful of books I think would make amazing adaptations (whether that be movie or tv) or I just would love to see them played out visually. Some of these books are in talks of becoming movies, but I am keeping them on here because unfortunately book adaptations get cancelled all the time. Here we go!
This book is so sweet and important. I think it would be such a beautiful movie! This is one that has been in talks for a movie, but like a lot of book to movie deals information is scarce.
I am a person who loves The Bachelor/Bachelorette (my fiancé got me into it a handful of years ago) and I think this would be so cool to see as a TV show! If you haven't heard it, it's basically a dystopian The Bachelor.
This is one of the creepiest books I've ever read. I think it would be an amazing horror movie! I am a big baby and I wouldn't see it in theaters but I'd definitely Netflix it when it came out on DVD.
This would be such a cute summer romance movie. I love the characters and the story for it. I think it would be really popular. Plus, I love the idea of having an romance centered around an Indian couple because there isn't a lot of representation in the media and the more the better.
A fantasy story with our main character who is betrothed to a prince to combine kingdoms, but instead she falls in love with the prince's sister? I would LOVE to see this kind of representation on the big screen. There are not enough diverse characters in fantasy books or movies and this is such a cute way to do it.
Although I'd want to change a part at the end, I think this story would be a great representation of mental illness and fandom culture on the big screen. I think it deals with internet and fan culture really realistically so if that is translated well on screen it would be pretty cool to see.
I want a LumberJanes TV show so bad! It could be live action or animated I don't care. If it's animated, I assume it would be kind of like Disney's Gravity Falls and anyone who loved that show would love LumberJanes. Note: My fiancé tells me that this is also in the works! Ah!
This book is so creepy and interesting. It's one of the most unique books I have read this year, and I think it would be such an stunning and a bit of a terrifying film. The idea of fear and hatred manifesting itself into monsters is such a unique and dark topic.
Thanks for reading!
