Books to film/television scares me. I’m not going to lie. Some have turned out a pleasant surprise while others have just been a flat out mess. Do you know how heart broken I would be if they made Anna and the French Kiss into a movie and destroyed it? Nope, I can’t even go there. Anyway there are a few books that I do think have the potential to be good movies. I stuck with stories I thought would play out really well on the big screen. What book would you like to see transferred to film?
Twenty Boy Summer | Bright Before Sunrise | Kiss of Deception | The Taking | A Court of Thorns and Roses | Altered | I’ll Meet You There | Finnikin of the Rock | The Selection | Delirium

I’d love anything by Sarah J Mass and of course the Selection.
But you’re right about potential disasters
I haven’t read Twenty Boy Summer yet, but I’ve loved Sarah’s Book of Broken Hearts and The Summer of Chasing Mermaids, so I’m sure that one would be a fantastic read and movie as well. <3 Also ACOTAR–yes please. I need to see sexy Tamlin on the big screen. 😉 They did try turning Delirium into a TV series but failed, right? I remember watching the pilot episode some time ago.
Twenty Boy Summer is SO SO GOOD! You should check it out.
I would be so nervous about A Court of Thorns and Roses being translated into film/television! But if it were done well, it would be SPECTACULAR. I’ll Meet You There would be a great film though <3
I almost put Altered on my list….but I can’t decide if I’d prefer a tv show or a movie as I think that both could be good. Either way though they’d need JR to advise them so they don’t eff it up!
And I totally agree with all of your other picks as well. So long as they are done correctly. Because there is nothing worse than when your favorite story is destroyed by Hollywood!
The EXACT reason Anna is not on this list. NOPE. Don’t ever touch my Anna.
I think ACOTAR would be great! Provided they don’t mess it up. I’m with you- there are some that I wouldn’t like to be made because of the fear they’ll ruin it. I think I’ll Meet You There and Bright Before Sunrise would be good too. Great list Andi!
I can’t wait to read ACOTAR, hopefully I will get to it this summer!
I chose Finnikin too! And the Altered series would be fun. I’d be extremely nervous about I’ll Meet You There – they’d have to get Josh and Sklyar *just* right. 🙂
Great choices, lady!
Man, I haven’t read any of these! I keep seeing them around though and I need to get reading! 😀 Great list.
I could definitely see Kiss of Deception working well as a TV show. I think we’re supposed to be getting a Selection movie. Hopefully it works out this time!
