top ten tuesday

Books that Should be Adapted into Netflix Shows/Movies

I’m taking part in another Top Ten Tuesday today! Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018.

It’s been a while since I took part in a Top Ten Tuesday, but todays theme is Books that Should be Adapted into Netflic Shows/Movies.

The Flat Share by Beth O’Leary

While I was reading The Flat Share, I kept thinking how well this would translate into a film.

The Wayward Children Series by Seanan McGuire

The Wayward Children would make an amazing TV series.

Arc of a Scythe Series by Neal Shusterman

I think I’ve heard something about the Arc of a Scythe Series being turned into a movie, but I’m not sure if it is concrete or not!

Heartless by Marissa Meyer

I’m not sure if the world is over Alice in Wonderland remakes/retellings, but I am definitely not.

When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon

I can never have enough cute movies to watch and this is one cute YA that I would love to watch again and again.

Orangeboy by Patrice Lawrence

This is another one that I think would transfer from written word into a film perfectly.

Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia

I think this would be an amazing one for Netflix to adapt – it would be really interesting to see how they’d show the internet friends and the webcomic in general.

We Were Liars by E. Lockhart

This would be a great film – the flashbacks could have the potential to be great on the screen.

What I Lost by Alexandra Ballard

There’s potential here to show what an inpatient treatment for eating disorders looks like; Netflix would have to be careful, however, that the content is not triggering.

Caraval by Stephanie Garber

I would love to visually see the Caraval and all of the illusions. It could really be great.

What books would you like to see Netflix adapt into a film or tv series?

  1. It can be hard to figure out which books I would want to be a film. A lot of times, the movie was already watched before I even picked up the book

  2. So apparently Netflix India is currently producing When Dimple Met Rishi, but I’m not sure about further news on that. It would definitely be a movie I’d love to watch! I’d also like to see Scythe as a movie. I haven’t gotten around to the series yet, but I love Shusterman’s works, and it sounds like this one could make a good movie.
