Top Ten: Books I'd Like to See As Movies

"Top Ten Tuesday" is hosted by the people over at The Broke and the Bookish. I participate every so often, and today's topic of "Books You'd Like To See Made Into A Movie" is not one I can resist because movies are my second favorite things.

However, I did a post like this a long while ago, so I'll just choose another five today: 

1. Graceling by Kristin Cashore - I just finished reading this the other day (my review will be up later this week!) and, oh man, ALL THE FEELINGS. There were definitely things I would have like expanded upon, and a movie would be perfect to do that for me. Plus, there would be lots of fighting, and fighting is rather exciting to watch on screen if done well.

2. The Year of Secret Assignments by Jaclyn Moriarty - What I like more than action movies, though, are movies featuring lots of teenage hijinks, and this book has plenty of them.

3. Past Perfect by Leila Sales - Also features tons of hijinks, but this time in a colonial reenactment village. What could be better?

4. The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith - I don't typically watch romance movies, but if this one was on screen, I would probably cry during it, not even going to lie.

5. Ballads of Suburbia by Stephanie Kuehnert - Speaking of things that would make me cry: an adaptation of this book would be disastrous for my emotional health. But I'd love every minute of it.

  3. Graceling has made a lot of people's lists. I don't trust Hollywood with high fantasy as a rule, though...

  4. I had Graceling and Probability on my list too but now that I think about it, I agree with Nicole. Hollywood hasn't done so good with high fantasy. Ah well, still on my list! I didn't think of The Year of Secret Assignments but that sounds good too (I read it so long ago!)
