Top Ten Books I’d Like to See Made into a Movie
by Kayla

Uh oh, I bet you guys can’t guess which two books are probably going to end up on this list! I’m sure Tami is already cringing and sucking her breath in through her teeth. Since I’m always repeating myself, I’ll go ahead and get those two out of the way first.

*gush* Dark *gush* Angels *gush* Sexy *gush*

I’ll be honest – I only want to see Atticus on the big screen. Yes, Oberon is hilarious, but I want some Irish deliciousness. I’m thinking we can dye Kit Harington’s hair red…

This is one of my favorite urban fantasy series, and I think Sabina has enough crazy mess going in her life that it would make a great movie. Plus, it’s a unique spin on vampires. I’d be there opening night, and I’ll buy the popcorn.

This so dark and grotesque that I think it would be a movie with some fantastic cinematography going on, if done correctly.

I think this just needs to be turned into a good, old slice and dice horror movie. Make it PG-13, and we’ll be golden.

My daughter and I both adore this book, and I think it can be made into a really sweet children’s movie if it gets the right screenwriter and director. My fingers are crossed!

Rachel Morgan is a hot mess. I think her screwed up life and terrible luck would make for an incredible movie. This is a post-apocalyptic, paranormal book that is more for adults, but I think any age (even toddlers! – just kidding) would flock to the movie.

In space, no one can hear you scream. I think we need a good sci-fi movie for the next generation. This one may not have aliens, but it has an AWESOME mystery.

I’m not even finished with this book yet, but I would love to see an ass-kicking nun-assassin bust some heads on the big screen. Who wouldn’t?

Pressia Belze lives in an ugly, twisted world. She is also ugly and twisted after the Detonations. This book scared the crap out of me, and it deserves just as much attention, if not more than, The Hunger Games. There, I said it.

What are your movie choices?


  1. I'm not really into books being turned into movies, but I do like your choices (especially Anna Dressed in Blood, Masque of the Red Death, and Dead Witch Walking) :)

    I wouldn't mind seeing The Forbidden Game trilogy by L.J. Smith being made into a movie.

    The CW is making a TV series based on Kim Harrison's The Hollows series, so I guess that will be the closest to ever seeing Dead Witch Walking as a movie ;)

  2. I know the Kim Harrison one is being developed into a tv series. Masque would be really awesome. And thanks to this i am now adding red headrd stepdaughter to my tbr pile

  3. Great list :) !!
    I actually haven't read any of these books though I'm dying to read most .. When it's done well I love seeing books being turneed into movies :) !!

  4. Nice list. I saw someone mentioned the Forbidden Game trilogy by L.J. Smith. I almost put that on my list!
