It has been a hot minute since I participate in Top 5 Tuesday, and I’ve missed it! Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme created by the lovely Shanah at the Bionic Bookworm. You can visit here for the upcoming topics!
This week, the topic is Top 5 books that need to be a movie, which is such a great topic!
Unwind by Neal Shusterman
This is a YA dystopian/sci-fi and I think it would make such a great action-packed movie. Honestly, when I was reading it, I could picture some of the scenes so clearly. I think it would work so well as a movie. Think the Maze Runner-esque.
The Lost Girls by Heather Young
If I could only have one book made into a movie and have it be exactly as I picture it, it would probably be this book. I can just picture it so well. It would be super atmospheric and suspenseful and great.
We Were Liars by E. Lockhart
Hear me out, but this could be such a good movie. I can picture the lake house and I feel like the plot twist could be so well done.
Dark Matter by Blake Crouch
This would be a great Tom Cruise-esque action movie. It’s written pretty much like an action movie, and I think it would translate really well. I think someone told me it’s being made into a miniseries? So that’s exciting.
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
Okay maybe I take what I said about the Lost Girls back. IMAGINE THIS AS A MOVIE. But it would have to be perfectly done. I would love a *hint* of Wes Anderson magic, you know? Like I love how he’s kind of like “fuck the laws of physics and realism” but only just a little. I feel like that would work so well for this book. But it would have to be darker than his other movies (because even though his movies have dark themes, they’re often presented as cheery, whereas this book is a bit more moody).
So those are five books I think would make great movies, and that I need a movie of ASAP as possible thanks. What are your thoughts? Do you think any of these would make good movies? Any other movies you can think of? Let me know!!
