Books I'd Like To Watch!


Top Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted at The Broke and the Bookish. Today's Top Ten topic is, "Top Ten Books I'd Like to See Made into Movies":

And I mean good movies; which follow every single scene from the book (without any unnecessary modifications and alterations) and which give due credit to the author. I won't be able to survive another disaster like Kubrick's The Shining or the Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban movie.

1. American Gods by Neil Gaiman

2. 11.22.63 by Stephen King

3. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

4. The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon

5. The Tiffany Aching Series (Discworld series) by Terry Pratchett

6. Weaveworld by Clive Barker (not done reading it yet, but I'm sure; if done well, it would make an amazing movie!)

7. The Book of Brownies by Enid Blyton (I owe it to my 7-year-old self, to include this book!)

8. Good Omens (The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch) by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman (because every list has to include this book!)

9. Bones of the Moon by Jonathan Carroll

10. The Case of Charles Dexter Ward by H. P. Lovecraft

Number 2 and 3 sound like they would be very good movies :) Great post, and I am a new follower as well! :)

I would love it if you could check out my TTT!

I think more Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman books should be made into movies! They need more love!

Number 7! I would pay good money to watch that movie!

Well... I'm sure 11.22.63 will eventually be made into a movie, but considering previous evidence of Stephen King movies, there's no telling how good it will be!

Love Good Omens. If Hollywood was making a movie of this book, then it better be made by a fan!

Great title of your post, btw!

I had Good Omens on my list as well! It's so clever and funny, yet the deeper meanings are so powerful; I have no doubt it would be an excellent movie! American Gods was a great choice too, and it looks like it's actually going to be an HBO series.

Great list. Thanks for sharing!

Yes, I do want to watch it when (if) it comes out; but I'm already sort of dreading it!

I heard that too, about the HBO series; I hope it does justice to the book! Thanks for stopping by :)

Thanks! Oh yes, no one but a fan; I wouldn't want them to screw up a Good Omens movie version.
