Top Ten Tuesday: Books I'd Love to See as Movies

This week's topic was  Books I'd love to see as movies, in no particular order.
This weeks topic was such fun to gather together, it pits two things that I love into one (Movies and Books).  

A Snicker of Magic by Natalie Lloyd1.  A Snicker of Magic by Natalie Lloyd
19547856There is sweet sisters, a down home feel, magic, and a girl who see's words floating around people's heads. 

2. Simon vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli
Simon is just so adorably cute and I would enjoy seeing his story unfold on film.   

13555073  3.  A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab
Alternate London's, magic and Lila.  Ahh it would be fun to see Lila.

4.  The Screaming Staircase by Jonathan Stroud
This would make a lovely ghost story.  

72495225.  The Books of Elsewhere by Jacqueline West
I would love to see the talking cats and Olive realized on film.  There is just the right amount of creepy that this could be fun.  

6.  The Iron Trial by Holly Black and Cassandra Clare
I think this could make for an interesting movie, there is lots of potential with the magic, mystery, setting.  

18289482160748437.  The Ever Afters series by Shelby Bach 
 Fairytale retelling with adventure, great friendships.  Well thought out characters
 and just oozes middle grade fun.  

8.  All Four Stars by Tara Dairman
There just needs to be a movie about a food loving girl who is a secret food critic, plus that creme' bruele incident would be worth it alone.  

12969560176754629.  The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
Why is this not a movie yet?   Come on, the premise
 is if Blue kisses  her true love, he will die.  
Plus Ronan and Gansey and Adam...this is one 
I really hope for.  

10.  The Hero's Guide To Saving your Kingdom by Christopher Healy
I would love an animated version of this with the characters looking a lot like the illustrations.  

I certainly have a mix now that I look at them all up there.  Not sure how they all would do as movies, but I still think they would be fun to watch.  What made it on your list?  Feel free to share your links in the comments.  


  1. Wonderful choices, I would love to see Lockwood and Co. series as movies.

    1. Someone I saw earlier also posted about The Amulet of Samarkand, wouldn't this make a lovely film too?

  2. I've only read a couple of these, but many are on my TBR. I especially think that the Raven Boys would make a great film though. I'd love to see all of Stiefvater's books as movies. :) Great list, and thanks for stopping by my TTT earlier. :)

  3. Awesome list!! I actually considered adding A Snicker of Magic to my list, but I ran out of spots. I think it could actually make for a better movie than book.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!!

  4. A whole bunch of these are book I would like to read. I have read and loved A Snicker of Magic- so I am with you and I would love to see it made into a movie. :)

    1. It would make for an adorable movie, thanks for stopping by Jess.

  5. Ooh, The Iron Trial would be such a great movie. I would watch that in a heartbeat. Make it happen, world! I still haven't read A Darker Shade of Magic yet, which I know I should do - Kim also really liked that one.

    1. A Darker Shade of Magic was wonderful, alternate London's Kell and Lila. Such fun.

  6. I just finished reading The Iron Trial and I really enjoyed it!! I'm a huge fan of Cassandra Clare, and she didn't disappoint. :) I think it's so cool she and Holly Black wrote it together. The book is still so fresh in my mind, and I definitely agree it'd make for an interesting movie. Currently reading an ARC of The Copper Gauntlet I picked up at BEA! As for Raven Boys, I'm TOTALLY on board. But only if they cast the perfect Gansey so I can swoon over him. Great list, Brenda!!

    1. I really enjoyed the twists in The Iron Trial, very unpredictable book. I also really liked the setting of the underground caverns. I hope your enjoying The Copper Gauntlet, look forward to seeing your thoughts on it.

  7. Simon Vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda would be fun! :-) Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  8. The Raven Boys was on my list this week too!
    My TTT: https://jjbookblog.wordpress.com/2015/06/02/top-ten-tuesday-7/

  9. This is a great list! I love the mixture of both young adult and middle grade books. The Hero's Guide to Saving Your Kingdom sounds hilarious. My mother and sister have both read it and were rolling as they turned the pages.

    Happy Reading,

    P.s. I know my comment(s) have to be approved. I accidentally commented under my Google handle. If you don't mind deleting that one that would be awesome. Thank you in advance!
