Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This meme was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We’d love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists
Each week we will post a new Top Ten list complete with one of our bloggers’ answers. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND post a comment on our post with a link to your Top Ten Tuesday post to share with us and all those who are participating. If you don’t have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. If you can’t come up with ten, don’t worry about it—post as many as you can!
For this week’s post, I took a look at the books sitting around my room. There has to be some books in here that I absolutely love, but haven’t been adapted yet. Right? Not as easy as I first thought, but I did find some.
1. Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series: I absolutely love the story of Jamie and Claire. This could be the next big series, like Twilight, but so much better.
2. The Walking Dead: I know it’s already been made into a tv series on AMC and I love it. I just wish that they will continue the series for a couple more seasons.
3. Steamed by Katie MacAlister: This was a fun steampunk novel, albeit with a few issues. I could see the turned into a movie in the Indiana Jones style. I think it would be a fun action/adventure/fantasy.
4. Frank Beddor’s Looking Glass Wars Trilogy: A re-imaging of Alice in Wonderland but with fun twists. I loved this trilogy and would love to see it come to life on the screen.
5. At the Scent of Water by Linda Nichols: And now for something completely different… A serious drama, but one that could be done beautifully on screen.
6. The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen by Alan Moore: The movie version sucked. We need a better adaptation of Moore’s great graphic novel. And this time, it has to be rated R. None of this family friendly crap! Did any of the screenwriters even read Moore’s work? It definitely wasn’t family friendly.
7. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies trilogy: Just finished the trilogy and am in
zombie (oops sorry) dreadful heaven. We have some beautiful adaptations of the original Austen work. Now we need to through some unmentionables in there and spice things up a bit.
8. Surrender Bay by Denise Hunter: I can see this working the Nicholas Sparks movie style. A feel good romantic drama.
9. Austenland by Shannon Hale: A fun Austenesque romantic comedy. The characters from this book are so memorable. With good casting, this could be an awesome film.
10. Eoin Colfer’s Artemis Fowl Series: Harry Potter is ending. We need another good young adult adventure series brought to the screen. I vote Artemis Fowl! I know my boys would absolutely love it.
