I have been watching Top 5 Wednesday videos on YouTube for a while now. Top 5 Wednesday or T5W was created by Lainey at gingerreadslainey on YouTube.
The theme for this week is the top 5 books I’d like to see as movies. It didn’t take me long to decide on what books I wanted to be turned into movies (or TV shows). I don’t know if any of these books are in the process of possibly being turned into movies or not. I will put the books in order from 5-1. One being the most anticipating.
5. Bones by Jan Burke:
This is the seventh book in the ‘An Irene Kelly Mystery’ series. I have not read any other book in this series. This book is about journalist Irene Kelly who goes along with the police and murderer Nick Parrish to a isolated mountain in hope that Parrish will lead them to his victims. Everything goes well until all hell brakes loose.
This book is great and would be a excellent movie for fans of horror and suspense.
4. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell:
It’s hard to only name one Rainbow Rowell novel, I would like to see all her books as movies. I have to choose Fangirl as my favorite. It’s my most resent reads and I found it easier to connect with that book than the others. Fangirl is about Cath’s college life and her fan-fiction writing about Simon Snow. It would be great if there would be scenes from her Simon Snow fanfic in the movie along with her daily life.
3. Burial Rites by Hannah Kent:
This was the first book I read in 2014. Burial Rites is about the last months in the life of Agnes Magnúsdóttir who was the last person the be executed in Iceland. I think that this could be a great movie. It could have flash backs when Agnes is telling her story-for the viewer to see how things really happened. It is rumored that Jennifer Lawrence will be Agnes and Gary Ross will be the director but no other information is out yet. Who knows what will happen.
2. The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons:
This is the only book that I have yet to finnish. I started it last night and am about 100 pages in and loving it so far. A historical romance set in Russia during the second World War, who wouldn’t love that?
I don’t know much about this book but as far as I have read I would like to see it as a movie.
1. The Diviners by Libba Bray:
Finally, the most anticipated book to movie adaptation (possibly). The Diviners by Libba Bray. There is so much that is going on in this book. The murder mystery and all the people with supernatural abilities. I think that this book, and the rest of the series, will be great as a TV series. There is to much going on to fit into one movie. The scenes with Naughty John could be so creepy!
