Top Ten Tuesday: Books I'd Love to See as a Movie and Teaser Tuesday


318016

1. The Mother-Daughter Book Club by Heather Vogel Frederick
There's a reason I'm working on a screenplay for it... Now I just need to find a production company who's willing to buy the rights and use my script.

2. Heist Society by Ally Carter
And, yeah, I know there are people currently working on the adaptation.  But I really want a GOOD movie of Heist Society.

3. Cinder by Marissa Meyer
How insanely awesome would this movie be?  The fairytale aspect would pull a female audience, and if they showcased it right, the futuristic and sci-fi elements could attract guys.

4. Princess of the Midnight Ball by Jessica Day George
It's one of the best-written fantasies I've read, and I think they could do a lot with a movie version.  King Under Stone and his world would look insanely awesome on a big screen.

5. The 39 Clues series
It has the potential to be a blockbuster film series.  What would be best, though, is if they combine 1 or 2 books into one movie.  And I'd just want them to do the first series.  The second series is good, but I think it gets just a tad too unrealistic and melodramatic.

6. Princess Academy by Shannon Hale
'Nuff said.

7907

7. Betsy-Tacy series by Maud Hart Lovelace
This is the second week Betsy-Tacy has ended up on my TTT list!  I'd absolutely love to see them made into movies, even just the high school books, Betsy and the Great World, and Betsy and Joe.

8. From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler by E.L. Konigsburg
If you didn't read this book in your childhood, you need to read it.  And someone needs to make a movie.

9. Number the Stars by Lois Lowry
Basically, everything I said about Mixed-Up Files applies to this book, too.  Including that you should read it.

10. Divergent by Veronica Roth
I'm kind of cheating with this book, since there is a movie of it.  It's going to be a long wait until March 2014, though, and I'm very excited!

Technically this is a re-read, but whatever. ;P

"'Not a lot of people know we're in the palace in the first place, just a few of the cooks I work with, one of the nurses, and Maxon.  I don't even think the guards know because they have to answer to the king, and he wouldn't be pleased to find out."
