These are the top ten books I’ve read that I would love to see be made into a movie (one is already a movie but they did such a crap job of adapting it I think they should redo it). I won’t be holding my breath for any of these though…
The Duff by Kodi Kiplinger: I know it’s already a movie, but it was so shit I want them to redo it, and stick to the book this time. The book was just so great and had such a meaningful message to it, I just honestly don’t understand why they would ruin it.
The Catastrophic History of You and Me by Jess Rothenberg: I read this last year, and I remember thinking what a great movie it would make. It’s a bit fuzzy now since it’s been a while but I do still think it’s a good concept.
The Selection by Kiera Cass: I just love this book series so much, it needs to become a movie or TV show ASAP. I know that they started filming a show for it, but they changed so much that when they aired the teaser for it they gave up on it because everyone was so pissed off. I’m really glad too because I watched it and I don’t think I could have handled it if they had gone through with the changes they made to it. So I think they should make it a movie and actually stick to the book and the characters personalities. I seriously don’t understand why they would change something like that. The characters are the whole reason I like the book in the first place. I just can’t.
A Little Something Different by Sandy Hall: This would be such an interesting movie. Basically this is a love story told from the perspective of everyone except for the couple. I don’t know how they would do it but I’m sure they can figure it out and it will be great.
I’ve Got Your Number by Sophie Kinsella: Think Bridget Jone’s Diary or Love Actually or some other British rom com. I would love to see this as a movie (obviously otherwise I wouldn’t have included it in this list). It’s got everything a good rom com needs. It’s got humour, romance, drama, not sure what else but it’s got it! Well really it only needs Romance and Comedy (which it does) so it would be perfect.
Before We Were Strangers by Renee Carlino: I’m surprised at how much I loved this book, but it would make a great movie. I keep saying that for each one but it’s true. It’s like a modern “The Notebook” except there’s a happy ending. Wouldn’t that be nice? I feel like it’s definitely got the feel of The Notebook crossed with maybe the modern feel of The Intern. It’ just a great book and would be a great movie and I think it should star Chris Evans and Lilly Collins. Yes? Yes.
To all the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han: I really think the world needs a movie like this. This girl writes letters to all the boy’s she’s loved before (duh) and then doesn’t send them. She just keeps them in a box so that she can remember how she felt and all that jazz. Anyway, then the letters get sent out and she has to deal with all of that. I can’t say why because of spoilers, but I think it would be such a nice feel good movie that you can go see with your friends.
Landline by Rainbow Rowell: First of all, this is the best Rainbow Rowell book I’ve read to date, so if you haven’t read it yet I suggest you do so. I can’t really explain the book but basically, this woman is work obsessed and ends up staying home instead of going to her in laws house with her husband and kids (her marriage is already in trouble so this doesn’t help). So anyway, she goes and stays with her mother’s house and when she uses the landline to call her husband, instead of getting present husband, she gets her husband from the past and it sort of reminds her why they fell in love in the first place. Honestly that’s a really crap explanation of the story but it was really good and as I’ve said for every other one, it would make an amazing movie. These directors really need to get on that.
Bared to You by Sylvia Day: Honestly I ran out of books I wanted to be made into movies. I really loved the Crossfire series. I did hear that it was going to be made into a TV show but this was over 6 months ago and there’s been no news since. I feel like if they made 50 Shades of Grey into a movie, there’s no reason why they can’t make this one into a movie too. Don’t get me wrong, I liked the 50 Shades of Grey book, but the Crossfire series just has so much more depth and plot, I just think it would transfer to the big screen much better than 50 shades. Although I really didn’t like the 50 Shades movie so no doubt they’ll ruin this one too. As they always do.
