Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme by The Broke and the Bookish, where they give you a topic and you post your top ten favorites. You can read more about it here. This week is the TV Show themed. So I’m going to do which books I think should be TV shows.
Leah’s Ten Books that Should be TV Shows:
1. Rebel of the Sands Series by Alwyn Hamilton
The story of a revolution, but more importantly the story of a stubborn girl named Amani, who shows everyone that she is much more than they expect her to be. The desert setting would make it a stellar TV show.
2. I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga
Jasper’s dad is the most infamous serial killer of all time. Half of the world feels sorry for him and half the world wonders whether or not he will turn out to be just like dear old dad, who taught Jasper all of this tricks. This would be a killer (pun intended) crime thriller series, I’d be so into it.
3. Throne of Glass Series by Sarah J. Maas
One of my all time favorite series. People either love or hate it, or love to hate it. This definitely has the makings of a TV show. Very Game of Thrones ish.
4. Side Effects May Vary by Julie Murphy
Alice has cancer, so she takes a Paper-town style revenge on all the people who have wronged her just before she thinks she’s about to die. But she doesn’t. Forced to live with the consequences, her life starts spiraling out of control. This was be such a great drama. Honestly it covers medical sob stories to sarcastic tomfoolery.
5. Bone Gap by Laura Ruby
Finn witnessed the kidnapping of a woman named Roza, who was staying with him and his brother, but he can’t quite remember the perpetrators face. A mystery ensues to find the missing woman. Very small town mystery vibe, I thoroughly enjoyed.
6. I’ll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson
Jude and Noah divide the world between themselves as children and struggle to find themselves as adults. These twins are beautifully characterized and so real it’s heartbreaking. It would make a great coming of age story.
7. The Weight of Feathers by Anna-Marie McLemore
The Romeo and Juliet of Circus Families, Lace and Cluck never should have met, never should have fallen for each other, but their love might be the only thing that could end their family feud. Or end life as they know it. The prose in this book is phenomenal and it would be a beautiful romantic drama.
8.Newsflesh Trilogy by Mira Grant
Two sibling bloggers take to reporting from the red zones, which are overrun with zombies. Blogging is the new form of news in this world, and the Mason’s take the lead when a Presidential candidate asks them to be the official reports on his campaign. Their fame sky-rockets as well as the risk on their life. The tV show would be full of politics, gory violence and sarcasm from the one and only Georgia Mason.
9.Dust Lands Trilogy by Moira Young
Another desert book, but Saba and her twin brother Lugh grew up in the middle of the harsh sands. Until Lugh is captured, and she embarks on an adventure to save her brother. Definitely got some great gritty characters and an awesome setting.
10. Red Queen Series by Victoria Aveyard
Mare is a poor girl with red blood in a world where those with silver blood and supernatural abilities rule.She’s brought into the castle to be raised as a lost silver princess, but one wrong move means the end of her life. This would be a great fantasy thriller with a twisted monarchy. I’d dig it.
More books should be made into TV shows because it honestly makes sense. More details could be included and deeper plots could be explored. Also, there would be a more finite end and not the eternal never-ending tv shows that are on TV today. Let me know what you think of these books, if you like or disagree with my picks.
That’s all for now, carry on your merry ways!
