Top 10 Tuesday is a weekly meme, that was created by The Broke and the Bookish .
I didn’t realize how long it had been since I participated in a Top 10 Tuesday until I began typing up this post. I think it’s about time I joined in again.
This week’s topic is:
Top 10 Books I’d Love to See As Movies/TV Shows
1. Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum Series
Yes I know that this has already been made into a movie, but I think that this would make for a hilarious television show, especially since there are so many books in the series.
Ideal Cast: I'd keep the cast the same as the movie with Katherine Heigle as Stephanie Plum
2. Secrets of the Old Ladies Club by Nan Tubre
A movie about a bunch of spunky older women. Think The Golden Girls.
Ideal Cast: Susan Sarandon
3. Reconstructing Amelia by Kimberly McCreight
A bit of Gossip Girl and a bit of Law and Order: SVU, this would make for an interesting movie, especially with the dual perspectives.
Ideal Cast: Gwyneth Paltrow as Kate, Elle Fanning as Amelia
4. Wedding Night by Sophie Kinsella
Wedding Night was a funny book, what with the hotel staff trying to sabotage the newly weds honeymoon. This would make for a hilarious comedy.
Ideal Cast: Perhaps Emily Blunt as Fliss
5. The Selection by Kiera Cass
I have only read this first book of the series, but I think it would be a hit in theatres, especially amongst teenage girls. The dresses alone would be worth watching for.
Ideal Cast: Shailene Woodley as America
6. The Luxe Series by Anna Godbersen
A historical fiction series set in New York focusing on socialites. Another one that would have incredible costumes.
Ideal Cast: Nina Dobrev as Penelope
7. On the Street Where You Live by Mary Higgins Clark
One of my favourite books by this author. The final page alone makes this a movie worthy book.
Ideal Cast: Ashley Judd
8. The Boleyn Inheritance by Philippa Gregory
We already know about Anne Boleyn, but this would follow the point of view of Jane Boleyn (sister in law to the beheaded) as Henry VIII moves on to wives Anne of Cleves and Katherine Howard.
9. The Shack by Wm. Paul Young
I think this would definitely make waves, especially regarding his portrayal of Jesus, but it would make for a beautiful movie.
10.Amelia Bedelia by Peggy Parish
This series was one of my childhood favourites. The antics of Amelia Bedelia would make for a great family movie.
Ideal Cast: Rose Byrne as Amelia
I know I didn't include my ideal cast picks for all of them but these were those who stood out the most in my mind.
