Adapting The Page: Ten Books I’d Love To See As A Movie/TV Series

I participated in this exact same meme back in September 2013 with The Broke and the Bookish. And boy how my tastes have changed. Here is the original post and of the ten, I believe three are in the works. 🙂 One is returning on this list today because I loved it so.

The Thirteenth Tale  A Reliable Wife  Attachments 15819028[1] All The Light We Cannot See

The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield (The repeat offender)

A Reliable Wife by Robert Goolrick (Ouch, such poor ratings on GR but it doesn’t matter because I really liked it)

Attachments by Rainbow Rowell (My first Rowell book and would love to see the office dynamics and emails come to life)

The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker (My favorite library book group read this season and the casting would be fun to see. I’m picturing a young Yul Brynner)

All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr (I know the accolades have become overkill but I LOVED it and the movie or TV series would be epic)

The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton (This was a hit or miss for many readers but to see it come to life would be visually stunning)

Euphoria by Lily King (Another favorite from last year and I love biopics)

The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah (A great read this year and my return to Hannah’s books.)

Our Endless Numbered Days by Claire Fuller (Another favorite this year and could imagine it as a TV series)

The Shore by Sara Taylor (Blew my mind this year. I could see it as a series, would love to see a collection of linked short stories play out on the screen and would need a family tree and discussion groups)

What books would you like to see as movies or TV series?

  1. Oh boy, I’d like to see the first four of your second set of five (could I be more difficult!) because I loved each of those books. Can you imagine the sets for The Miniaturist?! Divine. And compared to the luxury of that- the austere nature of Our Endless Numbered Days? OK, I’m already casting and directing both of these in my head…
