TGIF (7}

TGIF is a fun post created by Ginger at GReads.  It’s to recap what you’ve posted about through the week and then Ginger asks a fun question.

Friday, Sept. 9th - Books to Television: Which books would you love to see made in to a tv series? or movie?   

It's hard to pick. There are so many great book to TV shows already. Friday Night Lights, Roswell, The Vampire Diaries, Pretty Little Liars, They Lying Game, Dexter, True Blood, Game of Throes. And those are just the ones I watch(ed)! I think series of books (more than two or three) make better TV shows since they run longer than a movie. I'm not reading any series right now, so it's hard to pick one. My list here is LONG! (of course, only if they are done well) All of the current dystopian novels would make excellent movies: Across the Universe, Delirium, Divergent, Enclave, Possession, Wither. I just finished reading The Power of Six, the sequel to I Am Number Four. I love the books and would like to see them continue into the movies. I'd also like to see a Sarah Dessen novel made into a movie. I've only read Just Listen but I adored it and think it would cross over well. Hollowland by Amanda Hocking would make a great movie or TV show. 

Also...I am SO EXCITED to see The Hunger Games in March!

This weeks recap: Of Poseidon Cover

Tune In Tuesday

I'm really stoked to see Hunger Games as well! :) I have always wanted to see a movie of Twilight Eyes by Dean Koontz. I read it when I was 13 & w/ all the advances they've made in special effects it could be possible now. Of course, I also want to see a movie of the book I'm currently writing :D

Have you seen How to Deal with Mandy Moore? It was based on Sarah Dessen's novels Someone Like You & That Summer. I think it was made in 2003? 2004? It's worth checking out!

and YES to Divergent!!! I heard the movie rights have been bought, but who knows when it will actually be made. Also, I can hardly contain my excitement for Hunger Games movie! ahhh it's going to be SO GOOD.

Oh yeah, can't wait to see The Hunger Games (and Divergent...I so hope they make a movie out of that!)

And I can't believe you've never heard of the Blue Bloods series by Melissa de la Cruz! It's about aristocratic vampires...excellent! =)

I really love Dystopians too! Those are all great choices. Delirium was one of my favorite books this year so I would love to see that one as a movie. Wither was another favorite though. Great choices!

I agree...pretty much any dystopian/post-apocalyptic would make a great movie. You picked some great books! I also just recently read my first Sarah Dessen novel - Along for the Ride - and I agree, those would carry over as good movies, too.

I agree with like everything in this post. Roswell? I was Michael/Maria ALL DAY. lol. And Divergent is becoming a movie, isn't it? And Wither would be an amazing movie, I'd agree

Yes, yes, yes! I can't wait for the Hunger Games movie. And I'm dying for them to make Divergent. I want to see Four in the flesh. *wink, wink*

I totally agree! All of the awesome Dystopian/sci-fi books that have come out recently have been so epic that they would make great tv shows/movies. Also, watch How To Deal!!! It is totally a mix of two Sarah Dessen books (although they aren't my faves by her, it is still SARAH DESSEN so you can't go wrong!)
