Posted December 4, 2017 by Bekka in challenges / 3 Comments

7 Days of Top 7 is a week-long feature hosted by the BookTuber Book Roast. The idea is pretty self-explanatory. Each day this week participants will share their top seven picks for the given prompt. Today we are talking about the 7 books we want to see turned into movies.

bekka’s picks

1. Cinder by Marissa Meyer.
Sci-fi movies are really popular right now with the new Star Wars trilogy and the rise of superhero movies. I think an adaptation of Cinder and the rest of the Lunar Chronicles would be so popular. The books are simply cinematic; they read like watching a movie. I also think the visuals would be stunning, especially as we go deeper into the series.

2. His Fair Assassin by Robin LaFevers.
I think this trilogy would make a stunning television series. There’s so much history and plot to unravel here. And I think the addition of magic and the god of death would broaden the audience as well. It maybe wouldn’t be as showy as Game of Thrones or anything but I think it would fall along similar lines.

3. Daylight Falls by Dahlia Adler.
I’d love these books as another television series. I could especially see myself watching this as a teen. A t.v. show about making a t.v. show with lots of diverse representation.

4. Warcross by Marie Lu.
I’m currently reading this and I think all the stunning visuals would look amazing on screen. I mean, it is about a video game so it’s practically made to be viewed. I can see the images of Tokyo in my head as I read along with Em’s journey. I think the juxtaposition of poverty and immense wealth would be powerful on-screen as well.

5. The Hating Game by Sally Thorne.
Give me this wild, weird, wonky, bonkers romcom right now please. I need to see bedroom blue with my own eyes.

6. Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead.
Unpopular opinion time but I actually really liked the film adaptation and it’s what made me read the series in the first place. I want a continuation of the movie franchise.

7. Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta.
This is simply my favorite book of all time, so obviously I want to be able to watch it as a film. I also think it would just be a good movie in general. But oooohhhhh to see the “Not driving anymore” scene please someone pick me up off the floor

alexia’s picks

1. Splintered by A. G. Howard.
Okay, so technically an Alice in Wonderland movie has been done (by Tim Burton no less) but oh my goodness, I would love to see this entire trilogy on the big screen. I think it would be absolutely stunning.

2. The Program by Suzanne Young.
If even just this book was adapted to film, I would love it. I loved the book, even though it broke my heart and I think the movie would do to the same. I would have to make sure that I had tons of kleenex.

3. Dreamfall by Amy Plum.
Ohhhh man, this book was so good and the visuals would make for an awesome movie. Especially considering how advanced CGI has become. I have a feeling this movie would hook me from beginning to end, just like the book did.

4. Girls Made of Snow and Glass by Melissa Bashardoust.
One of the standout books for me this year. I would love, LOVE for this to become a movie. I’d probably be first in line to see it to be honest. This book had everything I could ever want in it and I think it would translate well to film.

5. The Memory Book by Lara Avery.
A tearjerking story about a family forced to deal with a terminal illness? I would definitely need an entire box of kleenex. Especially for the ending.

6. The Female of the Species by Mindy McGinnis.
YAAAAS, PLEASE GIMMIE THIS. I really, really hope that someday they do turn this book into a movie. It would be GLORIOUS.

7. Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys.
Gahhhh, the scenery for this adaptation would be beautiful. Although the subject matter would be hard. It could make a beautiful movie.
