Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I Would Like to See Made into a Movie or Television Series

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week the topic is Top Ten Books I would like to see made into a movie or television show (if this was a perfect world and they didn't butcher the books we love).

In no particular order:

  • Whistling Past the Graveyard by Susan Crandall - would make a good dramatic film.
  • The Cobweb Bride by Vera Nazarian - either a miniseries or movie encompassing more than one part of the trilogy. Only part one is out now and it's quite a cliff hanger. 
  • The Testing by Joelle Charbonneau - a movie like The Hunger Games.
  • 14 by PeterClines - would make a good campy horror film.
  • Life Expectancy by Dean Koontz - would make either a good movie or a good mini series where each segment was about a different one of the 5 "special days" in Jimmy Tock's life.
  • Lamb: the Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal by Christopher Moore - movie with humor and drama. Just what did Christ do in those years he wandered?
  • Dirty Job by Christopher Moore - movie with lots of  humor and drama. Death is dead; long live death. "She is strong like bear."
  • Elizabeth Peter's Amelia Peabody books - any of them would make a great movie with humor, mystery and adventure.
  • Southern Sisters Mystery Books by Anne George - any of them would make a humorous mystery movie. 
  • Mary Kay Andrew's books would be fun to watch as well. Lots of fun southern humor.
Alternatives I almost added were Carpathian by David Golemon as an action/adventure movie and Illusions: the Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah by Richard Bach.

Which books are you interested in seeing made into movies or tv shows?


  1. Christopher Moore is hilarious. I would love to see Lamb as a movie! Good call on that one. Here are my picks http://wp.me/pzUn5-1F9
