I like storytelling in ALL forms, okay, but particularly for sci-fi and fantasy tales, it’s just so much more exciting to see all the details of the world come to life. ANYWAY. Here are my picks for movies/TV shows I want to see. For most, I would choose movies, because I don’t really trust TV series adaptations to really stay faithful.
The Holy Trinity of DUH
Throne of Glass, The Lunar Chronicles, and The Bone Season
I will not rest until all of these amazing series are brought to the screen. It angers me so much that mediocre YA series keep being adapted while these are not. At least The Bone Season is FINGERS CROSSED happening. But basically: amazing characters, plots, and worlds? Bring me these movies. Now now now.
For the Feels
Made You Up by Francesca Zappia: This is the first of probably many appearances by Made You Up on my Top Ten Tuesdays. But this book made me feel intense happiness and intense anguish, and I think it would make for a seriously creative movie. Also THAT SHOCKING MOMENT. I want to see that. Accompanied with heartbreaking music, it could probably have me bawling for days.
The Art of Lainey by Paula Stokes: I LIKE MY TEEN ROM COMS OKAY? But The Art of Lainey would pretty much be a perfect one. Fake dating shenanigans, a great friendship, and all of the romantic feels. It would be the perfect summer movie.
Meant to Be by Lauren Morrill: High school trip abroad to London? Touring all around one of my favorite places on Earth? And meanwhile falling in love accidentally with a seriously awesome guy and lots of baaaaaaaanter? This would be one of my favorite movies ever.
For the Epicness
All Our Yesterdays by Cristin Terrill: As a movie, this would be an absolutely action-packed adventure. I mean, time travel for the win. And then THAT story, and those characters, and that ship, and that killer ending? Gimme.
Vicious by V.E. Schwab: Honestly, all of Schwab’s books should be adapted, but I just read Vicious last month, and I just. I just. UNF. I want. It breaks my heart that this is a standalone book because the story was so awesome and intriguing and amazing, and I want so much more time with those characters. My review for this should be up *sometime* this month. (I’m a bit behind. Oops.)
Pivot Point by Kasie West: This one I’m open to having a TV series of, and oddly enough I feel like The CW would do a good job with it (so long as they don’t try to stretch it for ages). People with powers, a twisty turny adventure in parallel timelines? There’s so much potential to make a really unique visual experience.
The Falconer by Elizabeth May: I want more steampunk on my screen, and this would be amazing. Amazing costumes, amazing weapons, amazing creatures, and a badass heroine ready to fight them all? I can’t dwell on how badly I want this or I might just cry.
