I’ll be the first to admit that I am always very hesitant of movie or tv show adaptations. It is hard to get the right screenplay, actors, and lets not forget, budget. Because that is often a big thing too. Money. Especially fantasy needs a lot of extras to work. It means it needs more money. Of course money doesn’t nessecarily mean the book will be done justice but you know what I mean. A lot of book adaptations don’t get the treatment that LOTR or HP got.
However if budget or the right screen play weren’t a thing to worry about there are some books I’d love to see on the big screen as a movie or a tv show. So for this page to screen freebie of Top Ten Tuesday (as always hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl).
Linking this up with the month long fun Wyrd and Wonder fantasy event.
Lockwood & Co. by Jonathan Stroud
I know this would make an awesome tv show. The ghosts, the kids, the side characters. (I know you are all thinking why didn’t I choose Bartimaeus, it is because that is too close to my heart and nobody could ever do justice to Bartimaeus or Nathaniel in my eyes).
Timekeeper by Tara Sim
I want to see the clock towers and the clock spirits. I would love to see how the world has changed because of it and I love the air ships that came in later books.
The Beast is an Animal by Peternelle van Arnsdale
Somehow I feel this would make a rather intriguing creepy movie to watch for Halloween.
Amulet by Kazu Kibuishi
I know that it is a graphic novel but I would just love to see it all in motion. Animation of course.
The Pyramids of London by Andrea K. Host
There are pyramids in London in this book. Can you imagine the sight? (It is because of an alternate history by the way) There are vampires and steampunk. Such awesome elements to see!
Nevermoor by Jessica Townsend
You might have noticed I fell in love with these middle grade fantasy books. It would be so awesome to see these books from page to screen. To see Nevermoor come to life.
What books would you like to see adapted if wrong/bad adaptions weren’t an option?
