Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. 

Since I am new to blogging I had a lot of options to choose from for this freebie week. I love movies (nowhere near my love for books though) and I thought it would be fun to choose the topic of: Books You Want to See be Made Into a Movie. Some of these books have actually started the process of being made into a movie, but they are still a long way off, and even though I know movies are rarely as good as the book, I can barely contain my excitement for how great I think the movies could or will be for these books. 

The Language of Flowers

The Language of  Flowers: I think this movie can be done beautifully!! And imagine all the amazing flowers!

Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption

Unbroken: This book has the ability to make a powerful movie! I want this book to be made into a movie just so people that don't read know who Louie is! He deserves the recognition and for people to see what individuals in the military sacrifice for our freedom!

The Baker's Daughter

The Bakers Daughter: This empowering and enriching novel has the ability to show individuals how even decades later, the world still deals with its past.

 The Night Circus

The Night Circus: This movie would be beautiful. Utterly and unimaginably beautiful. It is as simple as that.

The Shadow of the Wind (The Cemetery of Forgotten Books,  #1)

The Shadow of the Wind: Ummm mystery and romance set with a backdrop of Barcelona....yes, please!

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society: This book made me appreciate small communities again, and the value there is in the power of friendship. Definite potential to make an amazing movie!

Jemima J: A Novel About Ugly Ducklings and Swans

Jemima J: Total rom com that would be just so fun to watch!

The Giver (The Giver, #1)

The Giver: Every young adult should see this. This was the dystopian book of my childhood.

The Book Thief

The Book Thief: This book would make such a great movie of portraying the lives of those during World War II. The love and compassion shown is undeniable!

The 500
The 500: Suspense and thrills! This book would make a roller coaster ride of a movie! Combining the power and greed of DC into a movie? Definite action packed thrill!


  1. I haven't read many of these, but the two I have read I definitely agree with. The Night Circus was a magical book and I would love to see that come to life. And I think The Book Thief is being made into a movie. I'm sure I'll see it if it does, and I bet I'll cry just as much as I did when reading it. Eek! Great list :)

    My TTT

  2. Fantastic list! I'd love to see The Night Circus as a movie and I totally heart The Shadow of the Wind. I also heard that The Book Thief is being made into a movie; I hope they capture the essence of the book because it's one of those few books that really left me teary-eyed *blushes*

    Thanks for stopping by my TTT last week, hope you're had a wonderful weekend =)
