Top Ten Books I Would Like to See Made Into Perfect Movies
Hosted by the Broke and the Bookish
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
I thought this was going to be a movie…I don’t think a movie will ever do this book justice, but if it could it would be the best movie ever 🙂
The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart
This would be such an awesome kid’s adventure movie! It would be inspiring and fun…and hopefully encourage reading?
Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo
If the casting was done right, these could be spectacular! Given time, I will think up my favorite cast…has anyone cast this series already?
Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer
These would be fun to watch…if the casting is done right, it can be a-mazing! Fast paced, action packed, with a fairy tale edge; pretty darn close to perfect.
The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde
I would love to see the Book World come to life! This could be such a cool movie…
Peter and the Starcatchers by Steve Barry and Ridley Pearson
Another awesome kid’s adventure movie. A movie about how Peter Pan became Peter Pan….it would be epic!
Magyk by Angie Sage
These would be so neat to see as movies. The books have really neat creatures and magic throughout them along with very vibrant characters. It would be great to see it on the big screen.
Redone Books to Movies (ones that were butchered, but could be done so much better!):
Eragon by Christopher Paolini
The books were full of action and are un-put-downable, however, the movie was boring to me.
Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
I’m sorry, but that was not my Ethan Wate on the big screen. My Ethan was sweeter and softer. And there was no KELTING in the movie! Ugh..I’m donating my DVD to a library sale.
Inkheart by Cornelia Funke
This could have been an epic movie saga…I don’t quite know what happened (or what happened to my copy, I just realized it’s missing!).
Got any ideas on casting???
