In a perfect world where books turned into movies were the perfect adaptation, this is the list of movies I’d like to see in the theater. In no particular order:
- A Wizard of Earthsea By Ursula K. Le Guin. I discovered this book long after I read the Potter series but it was written in 1968, and it is like the grandfather of the idea of a wizarding school where young wizards are trained to go out into the world and do good. It takes place in the fictional world of Earthsea and it follows budding wizard Ged. I just kind of like the visuals in my head and would like to see this as a series or a movie.
- The Pendragon Series (yes all 10 books) but start with the first: The Merchant Of Death by D.J. McHale. “ Fourteen- year-old Bobby Pendragon has it all; he’s smart, popular, and a star basketball player in quiet Stony Brook, Connecticut. But a visit from Uncle Press soon topples all of that as Bobby learns that he is a Traveler, someone who can ride “flumes” through time and space.“
- Drowning Girl by Caitlin Kiernan. This book is like a ghost story/thriller, where the protagonist suffers from schizophrenia, and must unravel a mystery while she is unraveling herself. It would be a tense watch. Oh! Just did a search and they have optioned it to turn it into a movie, however, nothing’s moving as yet.
- This last one is part of series (a series I love) and I know it’s already a tv series but to be honest, the man is not Gamache! and I’d like to see this particular book as a movie. Still Life by Louise Penny (book 1 of the Inspector Gamache series). It is a mystery but it’s visually appealing, as is all of Louise Penny’s books.
So what do you think? Do you have a book or books that you’d like to see made into a movie? Please share it with me in the comments!
