Hello lovely bookworms! The time has come for another Top 10 Tuesday, a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is top ten books I’d love to see as movies or TV shows, but I’m going to change it up a bit and do top ten books that have been optioned/are under development/are soon to be movies, since I already covered this topic on ABEA Day 4, but oh well.
1. Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell
This would make an awesome movie! There haven’t been much details about this movie yet, but the rights were purchased, I’m pretty sure. Definitely would go to see this movie!
2. All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven
This is also going to be a movie! I believe Elle Fanning has been chosen to play the role of Violet. You can see more details about this here. This was such a heartbreaking story, and simply amazing. Perfect for a movie!
3. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
According to Popsugar, there hasn’t been any casting news yet, but Jane Eyre writer Moira Buffini will pen the script. I know lots of people loved this book so I’m definitely excited if they’re making a movie! I actually have this book on my shelf, so I’m going to try and get to it soon.
4. Dark Places by Gillian Flynn
Don’t know much about this, but I believe Chloe Moretz (If I Stay) is going to be a part of the cast, along with several other people. I haven’t read this book yet, but I want to! (Have you read this? What did you think of it?)
5. The Scorch Trials by James Dashner
This one is already a planned movie, as it is the sequel to The Maze Runner. I know some people didn’t like The Maze Runner, but I personally was okay with it, and I’m interested in seeing how they do the second movie! Here’s the trailer:
6. Paper Towns by John Green
This is another planned movie, that will be released summer 2015 if I remember correctly, starring Nat Wolff and Cara Delevingne. Check out the trailer below:
7. Beautiful Disaster Jamie McGuire
I have this on my TBR, and I actually just found out today that it might be a movie. Better read it soon!
8. Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
- I haven’t read this yet (although I will for my Popsugar challenge) I’m dying to read it, especially now after finding out there will be a movie! Apparently Emilia Clarke will be playing the character Louisa opposite Sam Claflin.
9. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by J.K Rowling
- The queen J.K Rowling revisits the Harry Potter universe in this book about Newt Scamander, who “wrote” the textbook that Potter and his classmates would study. (Popsugar)
- No one has been cast yet, but David Yates has signed on to direct.
10. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
This will be an amazing movie! I’m not sure if it’s 100% sure that a movie will be made, but if it is, it would be awesome. According to Popsugar, Eva Green and Asa Butterfield will star, with Tim Burton directing.
So that’s it for this week’s Top 10 Tuesday! What books would you like to see as a movie/TV show? What books are being planned to be a movie/TV show? Let me know in the comments below, along with other thoughts you might have!
