Top 10 Tuesday - Books Into Movies

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week we're listing the top books we'd like to see hit the big screen. I know there are many, many times I'm reading a book and I think, "Man, this would make an AWESOME movie!" I'm just always afraid it's going to disappoint me!! But, assuming it's done right, here's what I'd like to see make it to the theatre...

1.) Cinder (Lunar Chronicles, #1) Can you imagine how the cyborgs would look on the big screen? And a dystopian Beijing? I think this could be fabulous!!

2.) Under the Never Sky (Under the Never Sky, #1) I can just see the special effects of the aether sky and all the technology of the futuristic world. Then of the course, the romantic relationship between Aria and Perry...

3.)Fracture I just really liked this book. You think it's going to be more of a contemporary realistic book, but it has a supernatural twist to it that could really play out well on screen. It's definitely an edge of your seat thriller.

4.) Wither (The Chemical Garden, #1) Who DOESN'T want to see this on screen? I mean, come on? Rhine, Gabriel and Linden...the creepy Vaughn...a futuristic polygamist society with romance and just screams blockbuster!

5.) The Forest of Hands and Teeth (The Forest of Hands and Teeth, #1) I have been dying for this to be made into a movie!!! I would SO go to a midnight premiere for this!!! And zombies are all the rage right now,right?

6.) Before I Go To Sleep: A Novel This was a total nail biter psychological thriller!

7.) Delirium (Delirium, #1) I don't even know what to say about this one...just think about the premise - love is a disease that needs to be cured. And which is worse - conforming to a government that outlaws love, or being in love but being basically a fugitive?

8.) Die for Me (Revenants, #1) Oh this would be so fabulous! The setting would be beautiful - Paris! It would be full of action, and ahh - the romance. I mean, c'mon - Vincent is just hot! Revenants are way hotter than vampires any ol' day!

9.) Divergent (Divergent, #1) Again, a very action packed movie - probably appealing to Hunger Games fans. I think it would play out awesomely on screen! I would love to see how the different factions are portrayed!

10.) Matched (Matched, #1) I just think this would be great! Xander and Ky? Yummy! :)

What books would you like to see in the theater this summer?

I totally agree with Wither. I'd probably see it a billion times.

Divergent would be pretty amazing, I agree about the fans of The Hunger Games theory. (:

Yes. yes, yes to Divergent & Before I Go to Sleep - those movies would be epic nail-biters.

Out of all of these books, I've only read Divergent. I will admit that it would make an excellent movie, although these things always depend on whose hands they are in, don't they? Still, it's already in the works to be made into a film, so we'll just have to wait and see!
