Top Ten Books I Wish Would be Made into Films


The theme of this week’s Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, is Top Ten Book To Movie Adaptations I’m Looking Forward To. HOWEVER, I’ve decided to take a slightly different slant and make a wish list of book to movie adaptations I would love to see. So, all you movie producers reading this blog, take note…

An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir


Half Bad by Sally Green


Only Ever Yours by Louise O’Neill


The Dustlands Trilogy by Moira Young


The Tales of the Otori series by Lian Hearn


Pantomime by Laura Lam


The Hungry City Chronicles by Philip Reeve


The Chronicles of Ancient Darkness by Michelle Paver


Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein

rose under fire

Splintered by A. G. Howard


Which books would you like to see made into movies? And which upcoming book to movie adaptations are you looking forward to?

  1. I am so surprised to see Half Bad on your list because I HATED that book. I did read the second one though and I did like that one a more so I plan on finishing the series. What made the book for you?

    • I just loved the writing, and the character Nathan – I found it really gripping! And I think it does definitely get better in the second book. What made you hate the first one? Thanks for stopping by 🙂

      • I didn’t like the style. I found it to be way too slow, and I didn’t like the switch of perspective. I thought it was pointless. I wrote a whole review ranting about it lol

  2. I did the same as you with the list 🙂
    Some great picks here! We both picked an Elizabeth Wein book.

    AHHH YES TO THIS LIST!!! I completely want to see Code Name Verity/Rose Under Fire as movies. They’d adapt so well, right?! And I would sob with happiness if they did Dustlands. That series is just BEGGING to be movies. *flaps around wishing hard*
    Thanks for stopping by @ Paper Fury!

  4. Nice spin on the topic! Agree it would be very cool to see Ember and Blood Red Road on the big screen. I haven’t read the Laura Lam books but I hear great things about them.

  5. I’ve really got to read An Ember in the Ashes already!
