The topic: TOP TEN BOOKS I'D LIKE TO SEE MADE INTO A MOVIE
I love stories (obviously), so it should come as no surprise that, in addition to reading a whole lot of books, I watch a (some would say) ridiculous amount of television & movies. I can't help it! (And I don't want to.)
Here's my list of ten books I'd love to see on the big screen (in no particular order, because trying to rank them would take me all day!):
1. The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart - Frankie is an absolute favorite of mine. I'd love to see the "possible criminal mastermind" and her school's secret society in action. If you've seen (and loved) the Life and Death Brigade episodes of Gilmore Girls, you know what I mean.
2. Anything by John Green - Seriously. Anything. I'm particular to The Fault in Our Stars because it's the one I read most recently, but I'm up for any and all of them. The life/tragedy at boarding school in Looking for Alaska, Colin's Katherines theorem in An Abundance of Katherines, following Margo's clues in Paper Towns... so many options!
3. My Life Undecided by Jessica Brody - Her books read like films to me, somehow. This story would be so cute and fun to follow as a movie (and she even made a fantastic, movie-quality trailer to prove it).
4. Stealing Heaven by Elizabeth Scott - Teen, and reluctant-thief, teams up with mom to rip off residents in a town called Heaven? Cute, sweet cop interested in her for non-legal reasons? Yes, please!
5. The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith - A love story set over a 24-hour period that includes a hot guy with an accent is just begging to be made into the next swoony movie I insert into my regular rotation.
6. You Wish by Mandy Hubbard - This one would probably have to be on the Disney channel or something, because, um, Raggedy Ann comes to life. And so does Ken. And I think there's a pink pony in there somewhere. It would be silly and cute and so fun.
7. Delirium by Lauren Oliver - Lauren Oliver can WRITE. This book is so beautiful and so sad and so full of hope all at the same time. The world in Delirium is just recognizable enough that the story hooks you (almost scares you), but different enough that you aren't sure what exactly is going on or who to trust or what everyone should do.
8. Au, Revoir, Crazy European Chick by Joe Schreiber - Unassuming foreign exchange student transforms into badass assassin with her tuxedo-clad, dorky host-brother on prom night? And goes around NYC kicking ass & spraying bullets? Awesome!
9. The Gallagher Girls series by Ally Carter - Spy School for Girls. Enough said.
10. Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins - I can't help it if I want to spend two hours looking at Lola's crazy ensembles and waiting on the edge of my seat for the next Cricket Bell appearance.
