Top Ten Tuesday: Recent Books I've Read That Should be Movies!

This is a topic that comes up a lot so for this list I'm thinking of books I've read recently that I think would make awesome movies.

1. These Broken Stars by Aime Kaufman and Meagan Spooner: I just finished this and instantly thought... wouldn't this be a great movie? Yes. I think so.

2. The Winner's Curse by Marie Rutkowski. But I think we'd all leave feeling sad.

3. The Shatter Me books by Tahereh Mafi. Intense and nail biting and steamy.

4. All the Stephanie Perkins books beginning with Anna and the French Kiss, filmed on location in Paris of course.

5. The Raven Boys by Maggie Steifvater. All the boys, live and in person. :) But they'd totally have to get it right or else it would be terrible.

6. Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor, also filmed on location in Prague. Oh my word, this would make a crazy intense movie. Someone please make it happen.

7. The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson, though I doubt anyone could pull it off. It would be fun to see them try though!

8. Edenbrooke by Julianne Donaldson would make a fun regency romance movie. I would totally go to see it!

9. The Finnikin books by Melina Marcetta. Gah. That would be so awesome!

10. And finally, I Am the Messenger by Markus Zusak. Done right. Of course.

I pretty much feel like all my lists are listing the same books. Do you notice this at all or is it just me? Basically, you should read these books!

What books have you read recently that really really need to be movies? Check out everyone's lists at The Broke and the Bookish.


  1. I could definitely get down with Stephanie Perkins's books. And, The Winner's Curse is a good pick too.

  2. We have a few of the same books listed!

  3. They definitely need to make the entire Daughter of Smoke and Bone series into movies - that would be so intense. Not that I've read the third one yet. I just know it's going to grab me and make me read until I've finished, and things are too busy right now for that!

  4. I love the idea of filming all of these on location. Daughter of Smoke and Bone would look amazing as a movie. Raven Boys, too, but I agree they'd have to get it just right. :)

  5. This is how i found your blog quite interesting and concern in the blog is really impressive keep updating your blog and i have also bookmarked your blog for future updates and thanks for sharing this kind of precious information...!!!

  6. The Raven Boys was on my list this week too!

  7. I think I'd add "done right, of course" to all of the books I'd put on my list. Because we want them to be as great as the books and it's so hard to make that happen - such a rarity.

  8. Oh my goodness! Definitely have to agree with The Raven Boys and I Am The Messenger ... done right, of course!
