Top Ten Tuesday (1)

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

This week's topic is...
Top Ten Books I'd Like to See Made Into Movies

1. Deltora Quest by Emily Rodda. I have long dreamed of a Deltora movie, as it's my all time favorite series in the entire universe. But because it's fantasy and that's so easy to mess up *coughEragoncough*, I would only want to see it as a live action movie if it was on par with Lord of the Rings. I'm talking to you, Peter Jackson. O_O
2. Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld. Leviathan + Hayao Miyazaki = Dream. Come.True. Can you imagine it? It would be so awesome to see this as an (Miyazaki) anime.
3. Heist Society by Ally Carter. I love me a good caper movie.
4. Stormbreaker by Anthony Horowitz. Do-over, please!
5. Maximum Ride by James Patterson. Wouldn't this make a great movie trilogy? I'd love to see this as a movie trilogy, maybe even an anime trilogy.
6. Darkest Powers by Kelley Armstrong. I love this series, and think it would make a really good movie... with the right director, cast, writer, etc.
7. Skulduggery Pleasant by Derek Landy. It's one of the funniest books I've ever read, but laughing out loud at books is always a little awkward, so I'd love to see it as a movie.
8. Eyes Like Stars by Lisa Mantchev. Do I even need to explain?
9. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. I'm not horrified by the casting so far, so I think this is going to be a really good movie (or at least halfway decent).
10. Lockdown by Alexander Gordon Smith. One of my favorite books of all time. Never mind, I'd be too scared to see it as a movie!

I didn't choose any of these, even though I've read 3 of them! XD
I've read The Darkest Powers (up to the second one), Skulduggery (about 3 of them) and all of the Hunger Games.

XD Hoolarious! The way you talk about it, I wouldn't want to see Lockdown either.

I think the Darkest Powers would make an awesome movie too! Great list. =D

Orchid said...

Yes, a reboot of Stormbreaker would be awesome. And just the first three Max Ride books made into a movie would also be great.

Nice list.
