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!
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!
