Top Ten Books I’d Love To See As Movies/TV Shows

Posted June 2, 2015 by Grace @ Rebel Mommy Book Blog in Features, Top Ten Tuesday / 52 Comments


Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. 

Which books do I want to see as a movie or TV show? This is tough because I read a lot of books because I want to read before the movie comes out so that gets rid of a lot. So I had I check out my Goodreads to see what was left. Here is what I came up with:


Delirium trilogy ~ Your sick of dystopian trilogies coming to theaters??? Too bad, I’m not. I loved this trilogy and totally thinks it deserves its screen time.

Anna and the French Kiss series ~ I think this trilogy could be a good base for a  a really good TV show. I love all the characters so much  plus all the settings are awesome.

Dublin Murder Squad Series~ These would work well as one of those limited series type thing ( 8 episodes?) for each book. They are interconnected but still stand alone. Great characters, interesting stories. Totally would work on FX or HBO.

Tell the Wolves I’m Home ~ This is a book that stuck with me. Sticks with me. Deserves to be a movie just so more and more people read it or know this beautiful story.

The Dark Elements series ~ TV SHOW! It would totally be on the CW or ABC family.


Making Faces ~ What an amazing movie this would make. A modern tale of Beauty and the Beast which means it was meant to be on the big screen.

Someday, Someday, Maybe ~ Only if Lauren Graham can star in it in some way.

When it Rains ~ The movie would flood the theaters with all the tears. ALL. THE. TEARS.

We Were Liars ~ I know there are so many mixed feeling on this book but I really enjoyed it and in the right hands it could be a great movie.

The Girl You Left Behind ~ It takes place in two different decades, two different places. Two really interesting stories that interconnect. Would be a wonderful, moving movie.

Which books would you want to be made into a movie or TV show?

      Ha no worries – there were many posts today where I hadn’t read any but then spent time adding a bunch to Goodreads!!

      Oh Tell the Wolves I’m Home is one of my favorite books! Yes to reading it soon 🙂

      I know a lot of people have mixed feelings on that one but I really enjoyed it – Hope you do to!

    • Grace @ Rebel Mommy Book Blog

      Thank you! I think it would take the right person/team to do it right with the different settings and time periods.

      You just blew my mind with the whole Delirium already happened business!!! I will be looking this up now. EPIC is the perfect description!!

    • Grace @ Rebel Mommy Book Blog

      Now that I know there was a failed one – yes I want a new one! It would be the cutest!

      I hear you on being in the mood for that kind of book. I hate when a book takes e by surprise and I end up crying – the worst!!

      I also love Delirium so much and would be made if it was done bad (which apparently it already has! Did you know that??)

  1. Cool list! Ah I remember that they tried to adapt Delirium as a mini-series but it was cancelled and the pilot was released on YouTube 🙁 Such a beautiful series too but hey, maybe it still has a chance as a movie? It was very visual so they can do all sorts of great cinematic things with the scenes! *_*

      I finally looked it up on youtube and found the trailer. Crazy that they messed it up!! Fingers crossed for another go at it!

      I totally missed the Delirium thing but it sounds like it’s better that I did miss it!

    • Grace @ Rebel Mommy Book Blog

      Yeah I had no clue about this Delirium pilot – Hopefully it comes back in some better form!

    • Grace @ Rebel Mommy Book Blog

      Definitely check them out! I didn’t get to actually meet her, but I did get a signed book. It was s crazy – there were so many people on that line!! They pretty much took my books handed te the authors then handed them back to me.

      This whole Delirium was a crappy TV show has blown my mind today lol. I did look it on YouTube and yeah definitely not what I was thinking!

  2. Did you ever get a chance to catch the pilot episode of Delirium on Hulu? I missed it, but I heard it’s being optioned for film now. Not sure if it’s one hundred percent true, but I’d be the first in line to see it!

    I also agree with the Anna, Lola, and Isla books for a TV show. It would be cute, and I can definitely see it fitting in with the ABC Family or CW crowd.

    And yes! We Were Liars needs to be a movie! This needs to happen because I could really see it being a huge hit and changing people’s minds about the book. OMG. I need it now.

      I didn’t get to see it – I did look up the trailer on YouTube though. I think it would be a much better movie so I am glad to hear that! I totally picture Anna on ABC family. YES to We Were Liars NOW!!
