This week the subject is: Ten books I'd love to see as movies
1. Cinder by Marissa Meyer. I know, I know, I keep going on about how awesome this series is, but can't you just imagine the cyborgs and maglev cars and pretty dresses and androids...
2. Firecracker by David Isensen. I've nearly finished this book at the moment and unless the author really screws up the last couple of chapters then he will have produced one of the funniest books I've ever read. The dialogue and internal commentary is spot on a and it's really visual. David Isensen wrote for New Girl, and it really shows.
3. Half Bad by Sally Green. Such a good book, really dark and twisted, and although I wasn't keen on the sequel, I'd love to see what a studio could make of this.
4. Not A Drop To Drink by Mindy McGinnis. In my head, this book looks like Little House On The Prarie and sounds like Firefly, so I'd love to see how that translates on screen.
5. The Martian by Andy Weir. Because the special effects would be just amazing.
6. Easy by Tammara Webber. Because I want to see (and when I say see, I mean perve over) the guy they get to play Lucas.
7. Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson. This would be a great summer film.
8. Lola And The Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins. I just want to see Lola's Marie Antoinette costume. And Cricket.
9. This Is Not A Test by Courtney Summers. Because it's basically The Breakfast Club With Added Zombies and it'd be really cool if they got younger versions of Molly Ringwald, Ally Sheedie, Emilio Estevez et all to play the characters.
10. Uglies by Scott Westerfield. Scott Westerfield's worldbuilding in Uglies is so great, I think it deserves to be made into a film.
What about you? What books would you love to see made into films?
