Top 5 Tuesday: Books I wish had Movie Adaptations

Hey, guys!
It’s Tuesday, which means it’s time for a bookish favorites post. Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by Meeghan over on Meeghan Reads and is quite simple: check out the topic and write a post with your picks.
It’s almost like this month’s topics were made for me. I get to talk about adaptations all day long! So, to kick that off, let’s begin with some books that need to have movie adaptations!

#1 Fable

Normally, I’d rather have every book just be turned into a TV show instead of a movie, just because timewise it is often impossible to squeeze all the bits of story into a single film. However, Fable has just the right length for a film! With slightly more than 300, I think this would fit neatly into one picture. Also, this book include so much stunning scenery, I was constantly thinking that I would love to see the gorgeous underwater bits on screen. So please, somebody make this into a movie!

#2 The Ravens

While I was reading this book, it reminded me a lot of sorority horror flicks and I was getting slight Scream Queen vibes. So, I think this would make a wonderful movie that fits perfectly in that genre. Even if people aren’t familiar with the novel, I bet they’d enjoy an adaptation!

#3 The Shadows between Us

This was marketed as Slytherin romance and honestly, I need that in my life. Just give me an adaptation pleeeease! The main character wears so many stunning outfits in this novel, I’d watch the movie just for that alone.

#4 Eight Will Fall

This was originally supposed to be a duology but ended up getting squeezed into one book. I was a little sad as the world building would have invited another part, but as is, you could at least perfectly fit the story into a film! I did enjoy the story a lot and many of the elements included created such vibrant images in my head, they’d just make for wonderful visuals on screen!

#5 Angel Mage

Technically, this might be a bit too long (+500 pages) to fit into a single movie, but I think the story could slighty be condensed to make it work. (OMG did I really just say that?!) I loved the world building and the very unique vibe I got from the story. While some elements were reminiscent of the Three Musketeers, many bits were super special, so I think it’d make for a wonderful film full of surprises!
