Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
This week’s topic:
Top Ten Books You’d Like To See Made Into A Movie.
Lather, rinse, repeat. Lather, rinse, repeat. That pretty much what I feel like we will all be doing today. A lot of great books have already made it to the movie level or have been optioned. It’s a really good time to love book to movie adaptations. I mean who doesn’t want to see Divergent the movie?? Half of my list has already been made (Twilight, Harry Potter, and Hunger Games) while the other half are optioned or already getting underway somehow (The Sky is Everywhere, Mortal Instruments, Divergent, etc.) That being said here are a few of Dixie’s choices(with maybe a few notes from me :P):
Attachments by Rainbow Rowell – A GREAT BOOK. I found it on Goodreads and Dixie read and reviewed. We both loved it and I plan on buying her next book as soon as I can afford to since I’ve got to pay the shipping from the UK, but it will totally be worth it!! Per Dixie “no special effects, just a sweet G rated romance.” She picks John Krasinski from The Office as Lincoln. What do you think??
This Lullaby or The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen – Personally I haven’t read a single book by Ms Dessen so I can’t judge but Dixie says “Either one or both. I’m not picky.” so I’m guessing these are pretty good. 🙂 To the TBR list they go!!
The Secret Society Girl Series by Diana Peterfreund- Dixie: “much mystery and intrigue and sexy times…it ‘s been too long since I read them to do a proper casting”. Again I’ve never read anything by her but I do have her new book For Darkness Shows the Stars marked as TBR, so I trust Dixie is again showing her great taste in books.
The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E Smith- Dixie: I can totally see this on ABC Family Hadley: Lucy Hale, Oliver: dye his hair brown and make Tom Felton a good guy.
The Cubicle Next Door by Siri Mitchell- Dixie: For selfish reasons, so I can rewatch instead of reread. Jackie: Ellen Page, Joe: Jake Gyllenhall
Just One of The Guys by Kristan Higgins- Dixie: Very funny book, it would translate very well to the big screen. Chastity: Katherine Heigl. Trevor : Chris Pine
Ok. . . maybe I have one series that hasn’t made it yet. . .
The Iron Fery Series by Julie Kagawa – I LOVED this series and as I’ve stated quite often I’ve always hated fairy books. I just never cared for them until Ash. OMG how I love that boy (yes I know he isn’t real so hush!) Now that The Immortal Rules (sitting on my nook waiting patiently) has been optioned I’m hoping someone out there will see the genius that is the Iron Fery series are do it justice.
