It’s a toughie because so many have been interpreted into a movie nowadays… I could make this list now and by the end of the year, some of them may already be in production!
- The Passage by Justin Cronin <– I’m currently reading this and can already visualize the movie adaptation of it playing out in front of me
- Sarah’s Key by Tatiana De Rosnay <– Great story, good flashback sequences that tie the past & present day together.. good opportunity for some nice editing work.
- Room by Emma Donoghue <– I’m sure this is already in the works…
- The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky <– agreeing with Jamie, from The Broke and the Bookish blog on this one. Great book, would be a great indie movie!
- Still Alice by Lisa Genova <– A sad drama, akin to The Notebook perhaps.
- A Year in the Merde by Stephen Clarke <– This could totally be a “dramedy”…
- The Dim Sum of All Things by Kim Wong Keltner <– A funny/poignant look into the life of an American Asian
- Lamb by Christopher Moore <– A fun & funny buddy flick (I picture Zach Galiafinakis as “Biff”), but some uber-religious people might find it sacrilegious… but it’s got a good story & isn’t meaning to be offensive.
- The Luxe by Anna Godbersen <– A Gossip Girl style story set in 1899… would be a great period piece for young adults with great scenery and costumes
- The Boleyn Inheritance by Philippa Gregory <– A sequel to The Other Boleyn Girl… the next string of books following the one that was made into a movie are a phenomenal read and would be interesting to make into a movie (as long as the sequels do it justice!)
And nice to have picked up a few other books to check out while perusing the other bloggers that participated in today’s Top 10 Tuesday… one of them being a book entitled Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins… saw quite a few people post this as their #1 pick, and I’m intrigued now.
