Top Ten Tuesday: Books I would love to see on the big or small screen

Top Ten Tuesday button
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly hosted by The Broke and Bookish. Every week the girls from the Broke and
Bookish come up with a subject and I will try to find 10 results combined with that weeks topic.

This weeks topic books I would love to see as a film or television show. Thankfully the ladies over at Broke and Bookish did add the comment "set in a perfect world...in which movies don't butcher the books we love."  Which is the first problem I often have with books being made into film or television show.
Second is that I like to imagine things. I have idea's and feelings and watching a film having actors playing a character I imagined totally different can really ruin the whole experience.

But with the option they will not butcher the book or my imagination there obviously are books I'd like to see on a big screen.

The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova
I love the atmosphere in this book and the travel. I feel as if it could be a very dark film for a winters night. Sony holds the rights for this book but has not done anything with it up till now.

The Night Rainbow by Claire King
If you need a good sob and don't have the time to read the whole book a film of this story would be brilliant. Would be some interesting situations that have to be translated though.

The Will Trent series by Karin Slaughter
This will work as a television show. I love to watch crime shows (as much as I love to read crime books). The rights have been sold to Yellow Bird productions but I cannot find information yet.

The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafón
I can see this as a film. The cemetery of forgotten books in big screen, yes please!!
As Zafón is not really a supporter of the idea the rights have not been sold yet

Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys
Because it will show a part of WWII a lot of people do not know about and ALL THE TEARS!!


The Charley Davidson series by Darynda Jones
I would love to see a few more power woman in television show and I can totally see Charley being one of them.

Half Blood Blues by Esi Edugyan
Blues, Paris, WWII I can see this happen on the big screen. I feel that it would be a great atmospheric film with a very interesting point of view on the war too.

The All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness
I would love to see this on the big screen. So many interesting situations and surroundings.
Warner Bros is holding the rights to make this film. There is no release date yet.

Oh, The Historian would make a great movie! And I put A Discovery of Witches on my list too. What great choices! And so many books on your list for me to check out. :)

the only one ive actually started to read is the charlie davidson series and you are right, there need to be more strong females instead of the simpering weaklings we usually have.

I think my brain purposely left out The Shadow of the Wind and the All Souls trilogy because I wouldn't want a movie or television studio to touch it regardless, lmao. I love them too much--but yeah, they would indeed make fantastic movies xD

Shadow of the Wind would be PERFECT! I loved that book. Sigh. Good choice! And I'm SO with you on The All Souls Trilogy. I need the last book in that series NOW!

I also think The Historian would make a nice film! I would go watch it, definitely!

As for The Shadow of the Wind - I think it would be a great film, if it's done well. I also love how Shadow is included in most of your Top Tens :D
