Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of book, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.This weeks topic is a page to screen freebie, so you could talk about your favourite adaptations or books to read before seeing the film. I’ve decided to talk about two things. First four of my anticipated adaptations and second, four of my page to screen wishlist. These are the books that I would love to see on screen, either as film or TV series. I couldn’t come up with ten, sorry. Let’s get started.
His Dark Materials / Philip Pullman / BBC and HBO / TV series / 2019
Witcher series / Andrzej Sapkowski / Netflix / TV series / 2019
P.S I Still Love You / Jenny Han / Netflix / Film
Dune / Frank Herbert / Legendary Entertainment / Film / 2020
Page to screen wishlists:
Spellslinger series / Sebastien de Castell / These books are so much fun and I think it would make a fantastic animated TV show.
Shardlake series / C. J. Sansom / I’ve enjoyed all seven books in this series and think it would make an amazing mystery/crime TV show.
Old Man’s War series / John Scalzi / These books would make a great science fiction film or TV show.
Old Kingdom trilogy / Garth Nix / This trilogy is one of my all time favourites and I’d love to see a screen adaptation.
That’s it for today. It can be quite tricky keeping track of page to screen adaptations so if you think I’ve missed any excited ones, let me know. Are there are book adaptations you’re excited for this year? I hope you are all having a wonderful day and I will see you next time.
