There are so many movies and TV shows out there that are based in books, some that I’ve watched and some that I haven’t really been interested in. I thought it would be fun to do a post about the books/series that I personally think would be good TV shows or movies. There were quite a few on my list so I narrowed it down to 8 books/series that I think would make good movies and 8 books/series that I think would make good TV shows. Most of them are Young Adult but there are a couple New Adult or Adult books as well.
Top 8 TV Series:
1. My Life Next Door & The Boy Most Likely To by Huntley Fitzpatrick.
Anyone who reads my blogs know how I feel about My Life Next Door! I think it would make the perfect TV show and adding in the story from The Boy Most Likely To would make it even better. I always want more Jase and Samantha.
2. The Wildflower Series by Alecia Whitaker.
I loved this series and I would love to see it as a TV show. Wildflower, The Road To You and The Way Back Home were incredible on their own but it would be amazing to put them together and add in new stuff to make it a series for TV.
3. Feuds & Torn by Avery Hastings.
This duology was fantastic. There is also a short novella that takes place before Feuds. I would love to see this story play put on the screen. It reminds me a little bit like a mix of Divergent and The Hunger Games and I enjoyed both of those movie trilogies.
4. Rules Of Summer & Since Last Summer by Joanna Philbin.
I really loved the first book and I enjoyed the sequel, just not the ending. I think that’s why I would love to see this as and series, even if it was just a Summer series.
5. The Vampire Kisses Series by Ellen Schreiber.
This is my all time favorite vampire series ever. I love the characters and the sweet story and I loved the ending of the series so much. I just want more and more of this series. There are also a few graphic novels based on the series as well, which are just as awesome.
6. Wrecked & Reckless by Elle Casey.
I love stories where people are stranded on deserted islands for some reason. I just think it’s fun to see what kinds of things they come up with to help them survive. This duology where 4 teenagers are stranded is by far my favorite. It’s a story about friendship and love as well as survival. There is romance, humor and even a little danger. I think this would be a great TV series.
7. The Hazards Series by Alyssa Rose Ivy.
This is a New Adult series that follows college freshmen and sophomores as they navigate school and relationships. Each new story follows a different girl but characters from previous books make appearances as well. I love the series and want a TV show so bad. The series includes The Hazards Of Skinny Dipping, The Hazards Of A One Night Stand, The Hazards Of Sex On The Beach, The Hazards Of Mistletoe and The Hazards Of Sleeping With A Friend. The Hazards Of Sex On The Beach is my favorite because I love Cara and Chase.
8. The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer.
This series is amazing. Cinder, Scarlet, Cress and Winter are all retellings of the classic fairytales of Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel and Snow White. Scarlet is my favorite of the series and I am in love with Wolf! I would love to see this as and series on TV.
Top 8 Movies:
1. Final Girls by Riley Sager.
I love horror movies more than any other genre and I loved this book that read almost like a slasher film. I would love to see this turned into a movie.
2. The Love Interest by Cale Dietrich.
I fell in love with this novel when I read it. The love story, although not your typical love story was so beautiful. Caden and Dylan are amazing characters and I would love to see them come to life on the big screen.
3. Reality Boy by A.S. King.
I loved this book more than I thought I would. It was an unexpected favorite and I would love to see it as a movie.
4. Behind Her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough.
This was such a good book. I loved the ending so much. It was shocking and left me speechless. I couldn’t get this book out of my head for days and I think a movie would be amazing.
5. The Couple Next Door by Shari Lapena.
This is another book that I loved more than I thought I would. I loved the story another day the ending was amazing. Another shock that I didn’t see coming.
6. The Woman In Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware.
I have become a fan of Ruth Ware. I love her writing and storytelling. Her endings are amazing and I’m always surprised because I always think I have it figured out. I’ve always loved watching movies that take place on boats, especially murder mysteries and I think this would make a perfect movie.
7. See Me by Nicholas Sparks.
Nicholas Sparks already has several books that have been made into movies and I love every single one of them. I have no doubt that all of his books will one day make it to the big screen but I really want See Me to be the next one. This is the first full on mystery novel that he’s written and I loved it and want to see it so bad.
8. The Last Leaves Falling by Sarah Benwell.
This was such an amazing and heartwrenching book. 17 year old Sora has ALS and that’s all I needed to know to read this book. I think this would make a great movie and it brings up so many issues and concerns that I think would help people that are experiencing ALS themselves or that has a loved one that is. This would definitely be a movie you would need tissues for.
So those are my top choices for books that I think would make good movies or TV shows. Many of the books I have reviews for if you are interested in knowing more about them or my thoughts.
