Top Ten Tuesday: Books I’d Love to See as Movies/TV Shows

It’s Top Ten Tuesday today, as hosted by The Broke and Bookish. This week’s theme is the top ten books I’d love to see adapted into a movie or TV Show. So without further ado, here’s my list. All book covers are from Goodreads.

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I’d Love to See as Movies/TV Shows

1. Annihilation by Jeff Vandermeer


One of my favorite reads from last year. I think this could make a beautiful sci-fi film.

2.  Machine of Death, edited by Ryan North, Matthew Bennardo, and David Malki

Machine of Death book cover

This premise could make a great anthology series.

3. The Pilo Family Circus by Will Elliot

Pilo Family Circus

This book could make for a fantastic dark comedy/horror film.

4. The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E. Pearson

Adoration of Jenna Fox

A favorite of mine from my teenage years.

5. A Dirty Job by Christopher Moore

A Dirty Job

Another fantastic dark comedy.

6. The Sandman by Neil Gaiman

The Sandman

This series could be absolutely gorgeous on film or perhaps a mini-series on a premium movie channel.

7.  Daytripper by Fabio Moon and Gabriel Ba


Another gorgeous graphic novel with a beautiful story.

8. The Last Book in the Universe by Rodman Philbrick

The Last Book in the Universe

A thought-provoking sci-fi feature aimed at an audience just below the YA range.

9. Tithe by Holly Black


A dark fairy tale on screen? Sounds amazing!

10. Uglies by Scott Westerfeld


Another favorite read of mine from my teenage years. Given the huge surge in YA novels adapted into movies, Uglies could be a fantastic choice.

    I haven’t read most of the books on your list but I totally agree with you about Tithe and Uglies. They are such good books and it would be totally rad to those worlds come to life on a big screen

      Yeah, I think those two books would be so awesome on the big screen! I remember hearing a few years back that Uglies had actually been optioned to be made into a movie, but for one reason or another the project never got off the ground :(. If you like YA sci-fi I would definitely recommend the Adoration of Jenna Fox.

      I read the Last Book in the Universe in middle school as well! Our assignment was to write a story taking place in the world of the book (basically fanfiction, now that I think about it).
