Top Ten Tuesday: Top 10 Books I'd Like to See Made Into a Movie

Top Ten Tuesday

This weekly meme is from The Broke and the Bookish. 

This week is Top 10 Books I'd Like to See Made Into a Movie.

1. American Gods by Neil Gaiman - I've heard this will be made into a series on TV and I'm super excited about it

2. Zoo City by Lauren Beukes - I would love to see this world translated into a movie.

3. The Fables Series by Bill Willingham - I also heard that this was to be made into a TV series, but unfortunately that did not happen. I would still love to see it.

4. Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins - It's been forever since I've read this, but I think this is one of Tom Robbins' books that really needs to be adapted into a movie.

5. The Sky Is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson - I think this could be a great movie, but unfortunately it might be adapted badly.

6. Anna and the French Kiss and Lola and the Boy Next Door - Same comment from above applies here as well.

7. Laika by Nick Abadzis - I think this would be an interesting movie about the history of the Space Race between the United States and Russia from the point of view of Laika and her keepers. Very sad, but an important history that I think a lot of American don't know about.

8. The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie - And why hasn't this book been made into a movie yet?

9. Little Red Riding Hood - The last adaptation of this was pretty disappointing, and I would like to see something in the vein of the short film that was made years ago with Christina Ricci. And something that would especially explore all the subtext of the fairy tale.

10. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak - I think this would make an interesting movie to add to the already large pile of World War II/Holocaust movies.


  1. Ahhh. I can see your Little Red Riding Hood vision. That would fantastic.
