This week’s topic is-
Top Ten Books I Would Like to See Made Into a Movie or TV Show
Hmmm, a strange topic for me, since I usually cringe a little no matter how well the adaptation was.
(yes, even the Harry Potter series-they definitely left stuff out!)
Anyway, in a perfect world, where I had all the power, these are the books I wish would be made into a movie (that haven’t been already)
1. The Shadow of the Wind – I would love to see a really great trilogy here-I can already see the Cemetery of Forgotten Books in my mind!
2. The Paris Wife– Paris in the 1920’s, a young, handsome Hemingway, jazz-oh, yeah.
3. The Supremes at Earl’s All You Can Eat (TV Show)-Please make this a TV show- I never watch TV anymore.
4. The Sandcastle Girls-with someone really hot to play Armen-I see Javier Bardem?
5. The Silmarillion (TV Show)- anyone who has read this knows how epic and sweeping it is-each chapter could be a whole season.
6. The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society (TV Show)-I loved these characters so much-maybe HBO could do it justice?
7. Bel Canto– I know the real gem here was the lyrical prose, but I think it is also a bit of a love story at heart, and who doesn’t love a love story that ends tragically?
8. The Last Letter From your Lover-again-forbidden love, amnesia, plus I would love to see the Jennifer’s life of privilege- I think this has been optioned to be made into a film!
9. The Bones of Paris– murder, mystery, Paris in the 1920’s again
10. The Double Bind- one of the best endings ever!
(seems like I have a thing for the Roaring 20’s-no?)
