Top Ten Books We Would Love to See As A Movie/TV Show

This is this week's Top Ten Tuesday, which is hosted by The Broke & the Bookish.

This week's topic: Top Ten Books We Would Love To See As A Movie/TV Show (set in a perfect world...in which movies don't butcher the books we love) - These are not in any particular order.

1. Sign of Seven Trilogy by Nora Roberts. A group of kids opens up a portal and releases a demon which causing the residents of a town to commit unspeakable acts. M. Night Shyamalan should direct this.

2. Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver. This would be like Groundhog Day or Life or Something Like It, but better. I can picture the car crashing in slow motion, the music being muffled while the actress who plays Samantha Kingston does a voice over and says one of the many profound quotes from the book.

3. Matthew Swift Series by Kate Griffin. I would love to see all the different magical factions and art come to life.

4. Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer. A beautiful Cinderella cyborg brought to life by Hollywood? Hells ya.

5. Ancients of Light by Heather Fleener. That scene where Lorcan is torturing Kat with his vampire bites in front of Laverock's gate while it is lighting and storming. Yum.

6. Birth of Venus by Sarah Dunant. A young woman's hidden affair with a talented painter while her hand is given to an older, wealthier man. Set in 15th Century Florence.

7. Mindjack Trilogy by Susan Kaye Quinn. Telepathic abilities are hard to portray on the big screen but if done right this would be amazing.

8. The Mediator Series by Meg Cabot. Suze sees dead people and Jesse happens to be a sexy ghost who haunts her bedroom. Enough with the vampire flicks, it is time for a sexy ghost on the big screen.

9. Thorn in My Heart by Liz Curtis Higgs. Two sisters fighting over the same man's heart. This is a retelling of biblical story of Jacob, Leah and Rachel set in Scotland in 1788. Imagine the beautiful scenery, music and wardrobes.

10. Eyes of the Dragon by Stephen King. I would love to see a Stephen King movie that doesn't give me the creeps. 

What other books do you want to be seen made into a movie?
