Fun stuff today! The topic is “books I’d love to see as movies or TV shows.” There are books I’d love to see as movies, and books I’d love to see as TV shows, so I’m splitting into the two categories, with five in each.
1. the Harry Potter series by JK Rowling – These are already movies, yes, but MAN can’t you see this being a seven-year weekly show, going into a thousand times more details than the original movies??
3. the Mistborn trilogy by Brandon Sanderson – These could be movies, but they’d be so much better as longterm TV show material, for the same reasons as Harry Potter above. And Sanderson’s Stormlight Archive? Would be great for a TV series like Game of Thrones (except much better quality – not a fan of the GoT show!!).
5. either the Thursday Next series or Nursery Crimes series by Jasper Fforde – Because Fforde has fascinating worlds that would be great for a many-season TV show. Brilliant imagination!
6. the Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater – One movie per book. Please someone do this? Please?
8. City of Dark Magic by Magnus Flyte – I could actually see this one as TV or movie, but I think movie would be best. I’d love to see a narrator like Sarah as the main lead of a movie!
9. Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett – Pure gold. Gotta happen. Although this could be a TV show, as well…
10. Gentlemen and Players by Joanne Harris – While it would be more difficult to turn this into a movie, due to the particular twist, I would love to see what a creative director could do with it. It could be an amazing film.
