No? Well, I can dream.
Here are 10 books that (in my opinion) need to be made into movies - stat! But Hollywood? Please don't ruin them!
1. The Bronze Horseman Trilogy by Paullina Simons
Honestly I have no idea how they would do this without ruining it, so maybe it's for the best. But I would really love to see movie made from these books - they are some of my favourites for sure.
2. The Grand Sophy by Georgette Heyer
I don't know if anyone but me would enjoy this movie, but I absolutely adored this book like hands down fabulousness amazing book. But, it is a regency romance and I know that isn't everyone's cup o' tea or jam. But hey, it's mine. A company in the USA owns the film rights to this book so perhaps that means we might one day see one? They'd have a hard time casting Sophy, in my opinion. I can't even think of anyone. Kelly Macdonald is pretty hilarious and I like her, so I suggest her. Doesn't she look silly and happy?
3. The Stephanie Plum Series by Janet Evanovich
I know they made the first one into a movie, though I don't know why - did they think they were going to make 20+ movies? This would be a great TV show, in my opinion.
4. Handle With Care by Jodi Picoult
Or at least another Picoult book so we can wipe the horrendous movie to book adaptation that is My Sister's Keeper from our memories.
5. The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer
I freaking LOVE this series and hurry up November for the last one. I would love to see these books made into movies, though I'm not sure how they would do it - I'm sure Hollywood could figure something out! If I could have my dream cast - I would choose Lena Headey for Queen Levana, Stanley Tucci for Dr Erland (I just love him), Karen Gillan as Scarlet (red riding hood, though Karen might be too old? Not in a mean way, you know I love her) so maybe Emily Browning because she's bad ass (and Australian). I can't think of anyone perfect for Cinder (Cinderella), but Elle Fanning would be adorable as Cress (Rapunzel).
6. The Jessica Darling Series by Megan McCafferty
Wouldn't this be fabulous as a TV show? Or movies? Again, the chances of them ruining these amazing books are pretty high.. but I would love for them to try!
7. Attachments by Rainbow Rowell
This book is adorable and I think it would be the perfect movie (albeit a bit rom-commy but hey I dig it). Apparently Eleanor & Park is going to be a movie, so maybe Attachments will follow afterwards!
8. The Selection Series by Kiera Cass
It's like the bachelor, but for teenagers, with a dash of futuristic dystopia. This would be a fun movie, even if they only made the first one. Apparently they tried to make it into a TV show but it wasn't picked up. Might as well try again!
9. The Martian by Andy Weir
Ok, kind of cheating because they are making a movie out of this book and I cannot wait! If you haven't read this book yet, I highly recommend! I really recommend the audiobook, if you can.
10. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
Hey, it's about time for another Pride and Prejudice movie, I daresay! The BBC series was made in 1995 and the most recent movie was 2005... It's been 10 years guys! Gotta make sure every generation has a P&P. I will settle for the upcoming Pride and Prejudice and Zombies movie, but I want a new movie by 2020 please Hollywood.
Linking up with The Broke and The Bookish.
Do you have a favourite book you wish they'd make into a movie?
